What we offer

Sadly the Whirlies is closed for the forseeable future.

The Whirlies B and B is up for sale, either as an ongoing business with Excellent Trip Advisor reviews, a web site, and help to get you going, or as a family home with three bedrooms, three bathrooms and stunning views.


Please contact Miles and Son in Swanage (01929 423333)  if interested.

Nestling in a rural, south-facing side of the Purbeck Valley, at Harmans Cross, The Whirlies offers comfortable, quiet, bed and breakfast accommodation for up to four people. Views across the valley are delightful and the sea at Swanage can be seen in the distance. We are 70 metres back from the A351 and very peaceful.

Harmans Cross is perfectly placed between Swanage and Corfe Castle, with easy access to Wareham, the Isle of Purbeck and the World Heritage Coast of Dorset.

A large garden surrounds the house which is always busy with many varied bird visitorsand the occasional deer.

The two rooms are private from the rest of the bungalow.

Feature terrace with gorgeous views of the valley and to the sea in the distance, complete with luxury swing seat, just perfect for balmy evenings star gazing....

We offer a double room with en-suite tiled shower cubicle, sink and WC, and a twin room with en-suite bathroom, sink, shower bath and WC.  Both have HD flatscreen TV, Freeview and a DVD library, for those quiet evenings in... Photos of the rooms are here.

We like to make breakfast special. The starter is made each morning from fresh fruit, followed by whatever you wish from a choice of three cereals, juice and yoghurt. Our bread is home-baked without preservatives, as are our locally-made jams and marmalades. We source our eggs from a local farm and our bacon from local butchers.  We use tomatoes on the vine. Accompanied by Fairtrade coffee and tea.

Breakfast is served in the conservatory with delightful views over the valley and time to watch our bird visitors.


There is substantial car parking in our drive. Our community is Neighbourhood Watch and very safe.

 Night time noise is minimal and we often enjoy star-lit skies with no local ambient light.
