“Excellent house in a great location”

The house is decorated and equipped to a very high standard. It was extremely clean and it was a pleasure to find a holiday house with great quality beds, bedding and towels. We really appreciated all the lovely decorative touches and it is clear that someone has taken a lot of care over the layout and presentation of the house and garden. This meant we enjoyed being indoors when the weather stopped us going out!
The location is fantastic - a five to ten minute walk to the town centre and the beach.
We were a bit concerned about finding a parking space but apart from one occasion we always managed to find a place near the house.
Would definitely recommend for a family holiday.

“Definitely a house to remember”
Reviewed 25 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This lovely house was the ideal place to stay, it is beautifully decorated and furnished with the comfort of the guests very much in mind. We had mixed weather and the house is ideally situated for the beach (10 mins with young children) and plenty of good games in the cupboard for rainy days. The garden is also a great place to sit, eat and play. We have already booked it again for next year.

“Perfect Holiday Home”

person found this review helpful

Have just returned from a weeks stay at thiswonderful holiday home. It is the best holiday house I have stayed in. The house is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean.The layout is great with a through lounge and dining room,seperate kitchen with a great little room of it with a comfy sofa with patio doors going out into the garden which again is lovely with plenty of seating. The bedrooms are very comfortable and the beds were very good.The house has been planned with great attention to detail for a great holiday base.The welcome bag was also much appreciated.
The location is excellent it is only 10 minutes level walk to the seafront and the centre of Swanage.
Thankyou for helping making this a lovely holiday would not hesitate to stay here again.

“What a fabulous house...I could have stayed forever!!!”
Reviewed 16 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

What a beautiful house! Almost understated from the outside, as soon as you arrive at the front door the attention to detail is evident. The spacious lounge and dining area are open plan and furnished to an incredibly high standard - as is the whole house!! The kitchen is well equipped with lovely crockery and glassware plus every utensil you could possibly need. There is a second cosy sitting area off the kitchen which is perfect for coffee, especially on a sunny morning with the french windows open.
Upstairs doesn't disappoint either - one room with bespoke bunk beds, a pretty twin room at the front and a gorgeous double with a very comfortable bed and chandelier...even the bedding is high end! Both the bathroom and downstairs shower room are tastefully fitted, super clean and well maintained.
The garden is really pretty with several places to sit and catches the sun all day...although of course there is a parasol provided and shaded seating areas should you want that too.
There are lots of little extras - fragrant reeds, carefully sourced lamps, mirrors and decorative touches - more like a gorgeous home than a holiday rental. There are plenty of board games and excellent wi-fi should you need it. There's even a trendy "shopping trolley" for lugging all your stuff to the beach. We didn't need the car the whole stay - it's within easy walking distance of the town, beach, pier and Durlston Castle.
I cannot fault this house - everything has been carefully planned and it all worked beautifully! It is tasteful with incredible attention to detail and yet so comfortable and relaxing.
The only negative was that we hadn't booked it for longer.....I could have stayed forever!
