This is a great place to stay in Swanage. Lovely Grade 2 listed cottage in a quiet cul de sac only a few minutes walk from the Sea Front.Only 2 rooms both romantically fitted out. We stayed in the Purbeck room which I think is marginally the nicer. Large bath/dressingroom with a corner bath.Lovely lounge with a log fire, great...

Having read the rave reviews we arrived at Easter Cottage with high expectations. And yes, it has a huge amount going for it! The location must please almost all the people all of the time – two minutes from the stations, the shops and only a minute or two more to the beach. Parking was sorted for us by Dave...

Visited Swanage and Easter Cottage 13th Oct - 17th Oct 2014. Superb stay. Dave was an excellent host. Everything was delightful. Breakfast was wonderful, room clean and tidy, very good bathroom/shower. Lovely and peaceful. We were free to come and go as and when we wanted, but at the same time Dave was really willing to help with anything we...

Easter cottage is a delight! We just had a three night midweek break there and loved it. Could not really fault anything. Dave is a genial and attentive host as well as a great cook. Breakfast was the highlight of our days! Dave is also a fountain of local knowledge and will be more than willing to answer your questions,...

Yes you will see from other reviews,what an excellent place this is.We were privileged to have met the late Diane,who with Dave made such a great place to stay.It is difficult to write a review as one is unable to find fault.The only thing we can say,"Go there and have a wonderful stay."

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...

Just come back from another 4 night stay at the fantastic Easter Cottage and cements why we keep coming back.

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...

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...
