“Fantastic holiday home and really close to the steam railway”
Reviewed August 21, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

What a beautiful holiday home and a wonderful setting - right next to the steam railway and a lovely stream and tree out the front which felt private due to the gate. I don't think you could wish for more from a holiday home. Plenty of towels and the game cube had loads of games. Swanage is a super seaside town and everything is within easy walking distance so our car didn't move much which shows what a great location this is.

“A home from home”
Reviewed July 17, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We had a wonderful stay at Chesnut Mews. We were friends and family there to stay for my wedding. As we walked into the property we were met with a charming kitchen with lovely decorative touches of bunting and hearts on the windows. The beautiful interior continued into the living room and throughout the house. The garden was perfect for the little guests at the house, particularly with a steam train passing right next to the property!! A real hit. There is also a little stream out front and with two parking spaces it was easy for us to unload and load up the car. The beds were very comfy and there was everything we needed for a busy house in full wedding preparation! There were also plenty of games and toys for the kids which was great. The only reason I havn't given 5 stars is due to the lack of wifi, but we had a truly lovely stay and would go back again in a heartbeat. Thanks Sarah and Ian!!

“perfect for family trip away!”
Reviewed June 25, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

4 adults and 4 young children and the property was perfect. Lovely and clean, great location, had everything you need for a great stay. The children loved having the run of the top floor and the toys/books were an added bonus (particularly the wooden dolls house!)

“Weekend wedding”
Reviewed June 7, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Lovely place to stay. Good sized bedrooms and ideal for grown up family group.
Really convenient location for Swanage and the fact that there are 2 parking areas are a real plus. Could do with wifi.
