Jason & Sarah would like to welcome you to The Limes!

The Limes is informal, family run, comfortable and well-appointed and we are pleased to welcome families, groups and well behaved dogs.

For the comfort of all our guests smoking is not permitted anywhere in the building

There is a private car park at the rear of the building and secure storage is available for cycles and other equipment.

The Limes is situated in a residential area approximately 250 metres up a steep hill from Lower High Street. Therefor you have the bonus of being just a minute walk from all of the shops, bars & restaurants. Just a short stroll away is Swanage Pier & the beach which offers safe, clean bathing and dogs are not permitted from 30th April to 30th September.

However, there are other beaches only a short drive away where dogs are allowed all the year round, including Shell Bay, Lulworth Cove and Kimmeridge Bay.

There is a wide range of places to eat within a few minutes' walk or a short drive, including pubs, cafes, fish and chips, Italian, Chinese, Indian and English restaurants. A selection of menus is available at reception to help you plan your evening's fare. A comprehensive guide can be found at the Virtual Swanage site and do ask Jason or Sarah if you need advice. A list of dog-friendly pubs and restaurants is also available.

Christmas & New Year

Our 13 bedroom hotel is also available to privately rent (Self catering) for christmas and the new year, for all enquiries please telephone and speak to Sarah for a quote.

Groups and Parties

The Limes makes a great base for group trips (golf, walking - anything!), large family parties or reunions. Our lounge, conservatory, and bar mean that groups can spread out and relax and we have had the pleasure of hosting many such parties over the years. We can sleep anything between 20 and 30 depending on the make-up of your party and for larger groups we work with other establishments close by. Although we only offer bed and breakfast, we are happy to discuss which local pubs or restaurants (all within a few minutes' walk) would suit you best for evening meals and make reservations on your behalf.

Special Occasions

If you, your friends or relatives, are coming to The Limes to celebrate a special occasion we are very happy to provide wine, chocolates (locally hand-made in Purbeck) or flowers for the room. Give us a call or email to discuss your requirements.

Gift Vouchers

A stay at The Limes makes a lovely, imaginative present and we are happy to provide customised gift vouchers to include with a birthday or Christmas card. You can pay for a weekend's bed and breakfast accommodation, a night, or even a contribution towards a stay. Obviously for single night stays, we have to place some restrictions on when they can be taken, just give us a call or email and we can discuss what we can offer.
