Just got back from a girly weekend away. This lodge is amazing. The best I have ever stayed in. So clean and tidy. Lovely decor and has all the amenities you need and more. Lovely location. Hot tub looks right out into the country side. Definitely the icing on the cake!Such amazing views.the owners were so lovely too and nothing was too much trouble. We made friends with an American taxi driver from swanage taxis. He gave us so many recommendations on where to go for walks, bike rides and dinner. Every time we called for a taxi we asked for Kevin.Studland bay was amazing. Tried different water sports for really good prices and there is also a lovely cafe there too. Quayside restaurant in Swanage had great food and amazing views across the water. Will definately be visiting again. Maybe with the hubby and kids! Do much to see and do. Lavender leap was the perfect base.

“Perfect holiday lodge”
Reviewed April 16, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

people found this review helpful

We chose this property for a break with 7 yr old grand daughter in Easter holidays. The lodge far exceeded our expectations. It is much more spacious than we imagined and cleanliness and decor superb. The position is good as lodge is private and screened at the back where the hot tub is situated with a lovely decking area backing onto open countryside. Swanage is very family friendly with plenty to amuse young children and Bournemouth and Weymouth nearby plus Monkey World and we also liked the Blue Pool at Wareham.
Ron the friendly owner met and showed us around and explained how things worked.
We would love to visit again and would recommend

Had a terrific time at Lavender Leap. The boys loved the train ride into Swanage, the hot tub and the 3D tv. So much wildlife to watch too. Thanks Ron and Sue for a lovely relaxing week. Hope to come again soon. Craig and Jane Hutchins.

“Stunning tranquility, luxurious lodge, lovely owners”

We had a wonderful week here, spotlessly clean, lovely hot tub. The dishwasher packed up and the owner went and bought another one to fit, Ron was always on hand if you needed anything. The views over the field sat in the helicopter chair was lovely, later in the week we had friendly cows there too. The steam railway stop was lovely down the road to go into Swanage on too. There is nothing you could do to better this amazing place what ever your age.

“Beautiful, well-equipped cabin with great facilities.”
Reviewed September 26, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We had a lovely week at Lavender Leap; everything we needed was there and it's a light, airy, beautifully designed and decorated cabin with new, efficient equipment and fittings.

We enjoyed the hot tub, the garden, the views and the birds; there's a small campsite shop very close by for basics, and you can walk the mile and a half into Swanage or around the country lanes and fields straight from the cabin. Ron and Jan were very helpful and close at hand if needed.

I would highly recommend Lavender Leap for people of all ages, for a relaxing and restful break.

“When can we come again?!”
Reviewed July 29, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Well where do I start?! When my family arrived we were greeted by Ron and his wife Ann who were so friendly and welcoming! Ron was a lovely man who showed us where everything was and how all the gadgets worked as well as making frequent visits during our stay to check on us/see if we needed anything more.

The lodge itself was beautifully decorated and had everything that you would need for a fabulous stay; even down to the bedding smelling of softener (a lovely homely touch)! The kitchen is fantastic and our family definitely made use of the gas BBQ on an evening whilst enjoying the games that we found in the cupboard!

The hot tub was an added bonus that we all definitely had a cheeky dip in at night. The added decking at the back with the hammock chairs was fantastic and allowed you to take in the views of the fields. My Mum in particular enjoyed sitting out in the morning trying to spot all the different birds and wildlife.

I personally could not fault this place. The owner, the setting, the facilities and the surrounding amenities were absolutely fantastic and I'm desperately trying to convince my parents to book our next family break to here!

“We would be back in a heartbeat!”
Reviewed July 17, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Arrived to be greeted by Ron, who is truly lovely. The lodge is everything you could ever wish for in a holiday accomodation and soooo much more. The pictures certainly do not do this place justice but if you want excellent quality accomodation near to Swanage, beautiful beaches and the Studland ferry, then please look no further as you have now found it. We were lucky enough to have stayed for 3 weeks and wish that we didnt have to leave!
