"Great house minutes from the centre of town"
Really enjoyed our stay. The owner was very helpful in the run up to our stay and the roperty was nice and clean when we arrived. Only downside to the place is the stairs - you have to be fit. No problem for us but if you are elderly ... Lots of facilities in the house and amenities near by including a shop and pub. I would recommend it and more importantly stay again :)

"good location with spaceous house"
Be aware you need to take all towels, bed linen and tea towels. Could do with a larger clothes horse. Only one toilet.
Some of the cooking pans had been left dirty from the previous occupier.
Could do with wifi.
The house smelled damp and musty on arrival but cleared once aired.

"Good sized family property"
My grand children loved the property, expecially the kitchen,where they could perch on the stone shelf. The adults in the group found the kitchen a bit oppressive, so we spent as little time in there … More
Very pleased that all 10 of you found Bayview spacious and well located, with a good pub nearby.
Glad the children liked the kitchen but appreciate it may have been a squeeze for 10 of you as the kitchen is set up for 8.
Apologies re kettle, hope the wedding went well.

"great house and location for a dive group"
my dive club stayed here for the 1st may bank holiday, this was our 2nd time at staying at the house for a dive trip. It is in a great location, just a short walk to all the shops, pubs and restaurants and a couple of minutes drive to the pier. The house has plenty of space and is a great set up for groups, with a nice size back garden to dry off your dive kit.
Fab weekend in swanage - will be back again

"Family beach holiday"
We were 4 adults and 2 under 5's. Swanage is very good for families - sandy beach, free playground and paid-for activity "fun-fair" especially suitable for young children. Also steam train to Corfe Castle (National Trust), lots of walks and nearby family attractions. We especially liked Farmer Palmer's. Swanage has all you need for self-catering - choice of supermarkets and several bakeries etc. as well as sea-side facilities for buckets, spades and ice-creams. House is on 4 floors, which sounds unusual but works. (Top floor is just a bedroom). Lower ground floor is a huge kitchen/diner with full amenities. In easy walking distance of beach, high street shops, churches and cafes, bus station and Railway Preservation Society station. We had two cars and were a bit concerned about parking, but had no trouble when we were there. We usually parked one car very close to the house and the other within 100 metres. But most days we walked to the beach so cars were not an issue. We all had a good time.

"Roomy house in Swanage town and near to Beach"
Interesting terraced house spread over 4 levels , lovely views over town and bay from the upstairs bedrooms. 2 families of 4 shared together. Only one Loo, but separate bathroom made that okay. Well equipped for the price, comfortable beds. House is a short walk from the town centre, main beach and steam railway, making it a non-fancy, good-value base for Swanage town and Beach, Studland and Brownsea Island. We had good weather for April and spend 4 days on the beach.
Glad you found Bayview comfortable and convenient for all of you and that you enjoyed the lovely sandy beach.

"Very spacious accommodation with superb views of the bay."
A well equipped house with garden. Plenty of room for a large family. Need to bear in mind that the accommodation is spread over four floors; kitchen/dining room is in basement and the third bedroom is at the top of the house, via stairs from the third floor. Excellent position for walking into town, so close to all amenities. Also bear in mind that the walk back from town is uphill!
Thank you for your comments. I'm glad you enjoyed the panoramic views and convenient location.

Very spacious four storey house with lovely views.. In an excellent location - walking distance to Swanage Town/ Beach and few miles from Studland Bay. Fab basement kitchen/dining room with patio area for al fresco dining in the evening. Although this house is very spacious and well equipped it's just slightly dated and i can imagine with a few people staying the one toilet on the third floor may be a bit tricky in the mornings. Overall an enjoyable stay at Bay View and would definitely return and recommend.

"I like this house"
I have stayed at Bayview several times. The house isn't luxurious.Its main handicap is only having one bathroom but it has all you need, great views, is a reasonably easy walk to the town's amenities, you can park outside and if it matches your accommodation requirements is very good value. I would happily stay there again
