“Location great; decor dated”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We had a really great time in Swanage. The real selling point of this cottage is the location. The communication with the owners was also great. The decor is stuck in the 70's but is very clean and there are additional items that really help e.g. tinfoil, soap, washing powder. We went as a couple and had the downstairs cottage; it has two single beds in the conservatory, which had really drab and sun-bleached covers on. If we had taken our children I would not have let them sleep in there as it is open to the garden and adjacent to the front room, which would prevent them sleeping. Some updating could turn this into a wonderful cottage, particularly of bedlinnen etc as the small garden space is lovely.
