As the title says we loved Easter Cottage so much that during our stay we put a deposit down to stay there 12 months time for next year's carnival. We normally stay at a caravan site when in Swanage but that has now changed. Dave is the perfect host - friendly and helpful with a sense of humour but not... More

Just come back from another 4 night stay at the fantastic Easter Cottage and cements why we keep coming back. Dave is a fantastic host so welcoming and nothing is too much trouble, although the parking is limited it is never a problem as Dave will always move his car to ensure that we can park outside so this really...

Pleasant little B&B right in the centre of Swanage. Dave the proprietor couldn't do enough for us. Parking was a bit of an issue as there is only limited parking with the B&B being so close to town. Having a fridge in the room is a nice touch.

We booked this B & B online and was really pleased that we did. The rooms were spacious and exceptionally clean, with all facilities and special little touches like, bathrobes, slippers and cork screw and goblets. The breakfast in the morning defiantly set us up for the day with lots of variety to choose from - can recommend the full... More

We have stayed in a number of B&B's in Swanage over the years but this is our favourite. It looks small from the outside but don't be deceived, the rooms are a very good size with lovely ensuite. We just need to make sure we book it early to avoid the disappointment . Great B&B right in the heart of... More

I’d like to say “Don’t stay here” because I want to keep it to myself and be selfish, but I can’t. My wife and I have just spent what can only be described as the best 5 relaxing nights away in Swanage at Easter Cottage and the Swanage Blues Festival. The room we stayed in was large and had everything... More

My daughter and I spent two nights at Easter Cottage in early August. Can only repeat previous comments about the lovely room and en suite, beautiful breakfast and the great location. Literally a five minute walk to station - being a steam train enthusiast can thoroughly recommend the steam train to Corfe Castle We had a wonderful few days and... More

We spent three nights here over the Swanage Carnival weekend - 26-29 July. There is very little to add to the previous reviews. Dave is the perfect host. Genuinely warm and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble. The house is spotlessly clean. Both bedrooms are attractive with flat screen TV, fridge and large bath/shower en suite. The bed was comfortable... More
