Lovely few days at Poxwell Manor's West wing. Great accommodation, very comfortable beds. Well equipped. Beautiful surroundings, fantastic for a family. Owners very kind and helpful.
The West Wing is set in beautiful grounds in a peaceful

standard and you will not be disappointed. It is luxurious and
- we absolutely loved it here and will definitely return.

Only a few miles from Lulworth Cove, Weymouth and Ringstead - there is so much in the area to explore.
The home was beautiful throughout. The host Sarah was just lovely, incredibly helpful and very friendly. We had two young children and even with bad weather we had plenty to do both on the grounds and venturing out to local attractions. We would absolutely go back again and highly recommend to anyone wanting to visit Dorset.
