“Beautiful, comfortable cottage with easy access to everything in Swanage”
Reviewed 21 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Well equipped and ideal for all the family including our four grandchildren; brilliant 'chill out' room for the kids; added extras (beach gear) in the shed. Lovely sunny patio garden for that relaxing drink after a hectic day out.
We were very, very lucky with the British weather!!

“Very homely cottage”
Reviewed 25 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We had a wonderful weeks stay. The cottage is well equipped, clean and very homely. Alison has great interior design skills and is very welcoming and friendly. The house is in a perfect location, we managed to park just metres from the house and then rarely used the car again all week as Swanage has lots to offer and an excellent bus and train link. I would certainly return and have already recommended the house to family.

“Home from home”
Reviewed 13 June 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We really enjoyed staying in this house. It has comfy bedrooms, a lovely dining area and great kitchen. Our 5 yr loved the boat like bunkbeds and the secret room at the top of the house. It was great to stay in a home that felt well looked after and loved, which is hard to find in rented property. Also the location is just right, easy to walk to the beach front and restaurants. Another plus is there is a great pub next door, The Black Swan, that does wonderful food which made life easy with a little one. The owner was always easily available by phone and extremely helpful.

“Excellent family friendly cottage”
Reviewed 4 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

A great well presented cottage that is ideal for families as well as groups of adults. Only 500m from the centre of Swanage and ideal if you do not want to use the car. Has lots of little extras that make all the difference, toys, books and sand toys for children, books and coffee machine for adults. Very relaxing and well thought out.
