West Coombe Farmhouse is an adultís only bed and breakfast that is located in the quiet hamlet of Coombe Keynes near Lulworth Cove in Dorset. Our bed and breakfast provides guests with comfortable and relaxing guest accommodation that is ideally situated for exploring the Isle of Purbeck.
Our guest house dates back to the 1700ís, but was enlarged in the nineteenth Century in Georgian style. We have 3 guest bedrooms available and are limited to 6 guests. The double B&B bedroom has an en suite shower room and the twin has a private bathroom. (The twin beds can be zipped together into a double if required). The single B&B room is only let in conjunction with one of the other 2 rooms but it can be set up as bunks if the occasion demands.
There is a separate sitting room for our guests' use, with a television and log fires in winter. We are building up a library of books of local interest, guides and maps (which you can borrow during your stay).
Our prices include a full English breakfast, usually featuring fresh eggs from our own chickens and homemade jams and marmalade. We do not usually provide evening meals but there are several places to eat within a few minutes' drive. We have a fairly large garden in which our guests are welcome to relax after their day out. Closest to the house, the lawn is surrounded by well established borders. Further away, there is a large vegetable and fruit garden where we grow most of our own produce. This is fringed by apple, pear and plum trees and beyond, there is a small area of meadow and the chicken run.
We are a great anchor point for those who enjoy spending time outside. The coast, downs, forest and heathlands of Dorset are within easy reach and the area is a haven for those who enjoy walking, cycling, birdwatching and such like activities.
Local attractions include Lulworth Castle, Monkey World and the Tank Museum. There are also numerous National Trust sites close by, including Corfe Castle, Lawrence of Arabia's cottage at Clouds Hill, Thomas Hardy's birthplace at Bockhampton and, a little further away, Kingston Lacy House and Badbury Rings, near Wimborne.
The local market town is Wareham, 8 miles away; the county town of Dorchester is 13 miles, Weymouth 15 and Swanage 18. They can usually be reached quickly by road from Coombe Keynes or (with the exception of Swanage at present) by train from the station at nearby Wool.
