“Excellent accommodation in super location”
Reviewed July 15, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Very comfortable accommodation in this pretty, spaceous cottage with amazing amount of storage space. Everything provided that one could wish for and on arrival a waiting tea table complete with scones was a much-appreciated welcome. The location was wonderfully convenient and also quiet, despite its proximity to the High Street and beach. Swanage itself was a great place to enjoy the sea, lovely walks and many places of interest easily reachable by good bus service and train.

“Convenient Location (mobility impaired), Well Equiped, Excellent.”
Reviewed September 30, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Our reason for choosing was the location - and we were not disappointed. Ground floor with everything nearby - seafront, shops, restaurants, buses, taxis. End of pier to catch a boat is further, but plenty of benches on route!

Pleasant, secluded courtyard garden. Conservatory would be a good refuge if it rained.
The property was a real 'homefromhome' very well equipped to a high standard, plenty of storage space and thoughtful extras. Wouldn't hesitate to rebook in future.

Met by Ian and Jane who were very welcoming and provided tea / biscuits on arrival. They are on hand if needed but are not intrusive.

Car park permit available if needed, but be aware property is not accessible by car and unsuitable for wheelchair access. Not a problem if arranged for someone to pick you up as near library so easy to find.

Caught open top bus from Bournemouth station (combined bus/rail tickets available) - really felt the holiday had got underway. The 275 bus route to Wareham via Kimmeridge is a secret 'must do' scenic gem, a trip recommended, shame its only once a week! Walkers might find it useful.

Compton Acres worth a visit (buses 50/52).
Durlston Country Park easy to get to (bus 5), castle, views, restaurant - but if you wander too far benches are in short supply!
