“Beautiful seaside cottage - great for family holiday.”
Reviewed September 4, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed at this cottage with our two young children (7 and 18 months) in August and had a fanstastic holiday. The cottage is beautifully decorated with everything you need. My daughter loved the bunk bed pirate room, and the chill out room at the top is perfect with seaviews, a stereo, tv and a small snooker table! Booking was really easy, and Alison was very very helpful. The cottage is in a good location very near the high street and beach, and there is a well stocked shop 1 minute away and a lovely pub with good food 1 minute away (you don't hear any noise though). The surrounding area is beautiful and you can get around very easily even without a car.

I would definately recommend this cottage to friends.

Management Response
Aug 19, 2013
We are delighted to hear that you loved the house so much.Where the house is situated you can ALWAYS unload/pick up right outside. August is a busy time but we have never had any real problems parking nearby and once parked rarely use the car again until we leave.I have made a note to stock up on dishwasher tablets etc.

“Cosy, homely, snug cottage”
Reviewed April 14, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Just returned from. Second sty at the swanage cottage with a friend and four children. Had a Wonderful time and arrived to a super clean, well equipped house with a lovely welcome bag. Plenty of room and choice of beds! Would recommend the light house walk, windjammers cafe and curiosity shop, plus gorgeous art shops! Lovely beach 5-10 mins max walking distance. Tank museum great for kids! Loads of game, books and DVDs at the cottage an a fab coffee maker!! Owners are great and always available if needed.

“Great house, location and family friendly.”
Reviewed April 10, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Stayed here for 5 days just before Easter for my birthday. Booking was a friendly and easy process. The house was very central to town and street parking was easily available. Upon arrival the house was absolutely spotless, and really well equiped. There was a small welcome pack with biscuits and the most mazing marmalade purchased in support of RNLI, I shall be searching for some more of that! There were plenty of fluffy towels and beds fully made up with great quality bedding. There was myself, husband and our 4 year old - the favourite room of the house was the upstairs den, child freindly room with great views. It was absolutely freezing while we were there but the garden was also well equipped and I imagine a little sun trap in the summer. Would not hesitate to return or recommend to others

“would definitely come back!”
Reviewed February 14, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

Delightful cottage, tastefully decorated, very comfortable and clean. Could not have asked for a better equiped kitchen. The bag of local goodies and the bottle of wine waiting for us was a very nice touch, thank you Alison! Check out the High Street fishmonger, they had a spanking fresh gurnard, were very good at filleting/trimming and advising you how to cook your fish. Would love to come back in the summer.
