This is an amazing cottage in a great location in the lovely seaside resort of Swanage.
The owner Alison was helpful, friendly and informative from the start of the booking process to the end of the stay (long weekend). The cottage is stylishly decorated, very comfortable and equipped with everything you could possibly need. There is a lot of equipment available to borrow for the perfect beach holiday and lots of information about Swanage itself and local attractions. It is very clean and full of personal touches to make a special stay. We loved it and are planning our next visit.

"You couldn't find a better Swanage holiday cottage to stay in"

It was clear to me when organising my trip to Swanage that the owner Alison was helpful and cheerful to deal with. But it was only when I stayed in the cottage that I realised how clever she was too. … More

"Great place to stay for a weekend or longer"

I recently stayed at the cottage for a long weekend with a group of friends. We had a fantastic weekend and were really impressed with the presentation of the cottage. It was spacious and immaculate with lots of nice extras; a welcome package, plenty of games, DVDs and more. Would love to stay again!

"A charming stay"

The property itself is well appointed and thoughtfully furnished throughout, as the photos and reviews elsewhere demonstrate. We found it to be very comfortable, with a real element of style - excellent value. We had no problem parking either right outside or just opposite the cottage, albeit we stayed just before the school holiday.

The owner was very welcoming and could not have been more helpful, achieving the ideal balance between being well organised and available if needed whilst creating a relaxing place to stay.

The cottage is well positioned for Swanage and as a base for the wider area.

We could not recommend the overall experience more highly.

Thank you!
