The B&B was easily located by satnav and only a ten minute drive from The River Cottage making it an extremely convenient place to stay. On our arrival we were met with tea and home made cake and freshly baked cookies... Our room was just gorgeous with...

A fantastic bed and breakfast the owners are very friendly and could not do enough for us out of 100% I would give them 110%. The rooms are fantastic with all you need and spotless. Its a great base to visit the Lyme Regis area, we have been visiting for 25 years and this is the best B&B by far.

Swan Hill House is second to none. We have enjoyed about ten nights on four separate visits in 2013. Very comfortable and spotlessly clean well designed rooms with so many complimentary extras that you do not get anywhere else including 4Star hotels.
