Host Information

Host review score

Caythorpe House is a family run establishment. It offers bright, comfortable rooms and a friendly atmosphere in which to relax. Fabulous location, close to beach, town, steam railway, restaurants and pubs! A large comfortable guest lounge compliments our newly refurbished breakfast room. While we offer free parking this is limited and some spaces are blocked. There is however free parking across the road from us.
Caythorpe House is my passion and I am always pleased to talk about the history of this fabulous house and how I am currently sympathetically renovating it. After a long career in marketing in the travel sector, I am pleased to be able to put this experience into running a successful guest house.
We are situated on a very prominent corner just up from the 'banjo pier' on the coast that extends from the small clock tower. The Swanage market (Fridays) takes place in the large car park 100 or so metres from us. The beach is a three minute walk to our sandy beaches and the new Beach Huts that are available for hire.
