“Excellent base to explore Swanage and surrounnnding area”
Reviewed October 28, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Thank you to the owners of this lovely property for providing such a well equipped, modern, yet homely holiday home. We enjoyed our stay immensely having never been to Swanage before and are especially grateful for the extra touches we requested for our birthday celebrations. This property is extremely well located for access to both the beach and town and we would be delighted to stay again in the future.

“Lovely house in perfect location for family gathering”
Reviewed September 22, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Everything was perfect in the house and we were so lucky to have lovely warm weather so sat on the balcony and in the garden soaking up the sun. The location was ideal for strolling to beach or chops/restaurants but best of all for access to lovely long coastal walks and cream teas!

“Brilliant Holiday at The Quarterdeck”
Reviewed September 26, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We had a brilliant time at this wonderful house. Everything about it is fantastic but we particularily like the gorgeous large balcony, the extremely well equipped kitchen and the fact that the house is set out so a group has plenty of space. Thank you very much Quaterdeck! Swanage was lovely too.
