“Perfection”
Reviewed April 16, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The most amazing holiday we ever had.The house is beautiful and thoughtfully put together.You really dont need to take anything apart from clothes.location is excellent,a short walk from beach and a range of decent shops.There are so many things to do, we barely touched them in a week.Lulworth Cove is heaven and riding at Studland Stables well worth doing.I wish I could live here.

“Great house”
Reviewed April 8, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

This was a great house - very well done up and equipped. It was also well situated in terms of practicalities. I would say that the town of Swanage has seen some tough times and needs some loving care, but the coast around here is beautiful, especially for walkers. The owner is very helpful, friendly and well-organised. I definitely would recommend this house.

“Beautiful cottage, great location”
Reviewed October 14, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

The cottage is lovely and did not disappoint. the house is very tastefully decorated, has great facilities and everything you need has been thought off and included. We were treated to a lovely welcome gift and the owner has clearly put some thought into the needs of her holiday makers and we felt totally relaxed here.
Initially slightly skeptical of its proximity to town, we were pleasantly surprised as it really is only a short walk down the hill. The pub and corner shop are so close -but not so close that you get disturbed, so totally convenient.
We will definitely be booking a return visit.

“Comfy, bijou property, real flame fires & boutique hotel decor”
Reviewed October 14, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Expect a bit of a tardis when you rent this house, lovely victorian cottage, bijou & boutique hotel restful decor, though still room for 6 with ease. Attic room is a boon for teenagers or a man cave! 10 minutes stroll to the seafront, 'corner' shop 2 minutes away and restaurants and pubs a plenty, you can forget the car and walk for all of your stay unless you want to go out of Swanage. We found the location very quiet and peaceful, we especially enjoyed the gas fires on the chilly October evenings (not that the heating wasn't totally adequate - just a fire is so cosy!) Owner Alison has thought of everything, a lovely weeks rest in a beautiful seaside town.
