About Us

The Dorset Coast, many novels and films were inspired here and once bitten forever smitten is certainly true.

West Compton Manor is more than a pretty dog loving country house, many of our holiday guests become our friends.

Whether you wish to get a break from the hectic London life, or to go fossil hunting on the Unesco World Heritage Jurassic Coast nearby-

We are pleased to welcome guests great and small, kids love it – lap up the green hills and meadows – children are safe in the countryside.


Enjoy a spot of fishing on our own lake or venture into the charming market town and vintage hub of Bridport.

We organise the odd shooting trip in the local area, seasonally of course – for the budding gentry out there.


We even have a fairytale wedding venue with a delightful 14th century Village Church and host receptions in the Orangery.

For tailored packages please do get in touch to discuss your needs and we will make that golden day dream come true.


For a fresh break, to get away from it all – or more often as not – find yourself, please come and be our guests.

This was the most beautiful bed and breakfast I have ever stayed at. The large room I stayed in was gorgeous and the bed was comfy. I had a balcony with a beautiful view of the property. The entrance way made it feel like you were entering a castle with the arch and sculpture in the drive around. The owner is very personable and made it feel like home with a home cooked meal. I will definitely make this a place to stay again.

If you want a relaxing weekend break from London you could not do better than West Compton- charming and affable staff, legendary breakfasts. Stroll in the quiet countryside or visit the vintage town of Bridport nearby – you'll be back for sure 🙂

Thoroughly comfortable, well appointed suite. Huge bed, gorgeous setting with a patio and views to die for. Lashings of hot water and a proper mug of tea at breakfast, which was then followed by freshly brewed coffee and an apparently endless supply of toast!
