“Taunton Cottage a great location” We had a lovely week's stay at this impressive cottage which is equipped with everything you could need for a family holiday. My 12 year old was especially impressed with her own floor of the house (as it has a loft conversion) with her own en suite shower! The WIFI is really good which is also a must with children. I enjoyed some lovely down time in the very comfy rooms. The house is a stone's throw from the town which offers lots to do for a family week away. We were made to feel very welcome by the owners and nothing was too much trouble. We were only sad that we had to leave! I would also commend the décor of the house which was well thought out and everything matched perfectly. I would highly recommend this house to parents with older children as it provides enough space for everyone to be happy. It also has it's own car parking space which is very rare for a house in Swanage and makes packing and unpacking the car quick and painless. Once we were parked, we didn't feel the need to use the car as everything is walkable but it's great to know that it's just there should you need to go out. Finally, top marks for cleanliness. Super clean linen and bathrooms and lovely finishing touches. Thanks for a wonderful holiday.

“Wonderful” 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.

“luxurious park lodge!” we stayed for 1 week at 144 kingfisher lakes after the warmwell park was recommended by a colleague. haveing seen some negative reviews about the Hoseasons and Parkdene lodges we found some privately owned lodges on the holiday lettings website. firstly, in our opinion, Warmwell is far better for young children than some of the other holiday parks in weymouth. The childrens activities are far more extensive than the others rather than just a necessary (and small) addition to the bar and amusment arcade (see Haven parks). The warmwell resort is generously laid out amongst the trees with plenty of space between the lodges unlike some of the caravan parks. There are a number of wooden adventure playgrounds around the park (not just by the bar). There is also a full scale large soft indoor play area that is the size of a stand alone softpaly area that you might find in your local town. this has a large slide and even a zip wire! there is also the roller disco and swimming pool with water slide. Back to 144 king fisher lakes, This lodge sleeps 6 in 3 bedrooms (no sofa bed needed). It has washing machine, drier, dishwasher, fridge freezer (with crushed ice maker), wide screen flatpanel tv in lounge and tv in each bedroom. Ensuite to master bedroom and family bathroom with full size bath. It really is at the top end. The owners provided us with a high chair and travel cot for our youngest at no extra cost. The lodge is ideal for small children because the veranda is enclosed on all sides since the entry door and steps are at the rear. the children can use the veranda without getting into any trouble! The lodge is located in a queit part of the park, with its own parking for 2 vehicles, the evenings were peaceful and quiet. Pam, the owner, was helpful at all stages of our booking and visit. we will most definately stay again.

“Didn't want to leave!” The apartment was very clean, bright, very modern with fantastic facilities and located a short walk from the beach. Also a great place to bring kids. We have a 3 month old therefore we needed somewhere clean, comfortable, where we could cook and go for walks. We were more than happy here and didn't want to leave once our holiday was over. Sandbanks is a great place and the list of 'things to do' Ian provided was very handy although sandbanks it's self kept us busy most of the time as the beach is beautiful and not over crowded like it was in Bournemouth. Overall I fully recommend this apartment, had a fantastic time!

“Lovely "upside down" house” Recently returned from a lovely week in Weymouth staying at Castle Cove View as a family of 4 with 2 small boys. The boys loved the "upside downness" of the house having their bedrooms on the ground floor and us parents up in the roof. Being on the first floor the view from the lounge of the beach and the boats was very relaxing after a busy day out and about sight seeing. The cottage is really well equipped, we didn't want for anything in the kitchen. Can highly recommend the chip shop near the Costcutter shop if you want a chippy tea, cooked fresh while we waited. Also, the Old Castle Hotel round the corner from the house is very family friendly pub and they even put the bouncy castle up in the garden specially for our boys one afternoon. We didn't have a car and survived perfectly well on public transport visiting Corfe Castle and Portland Bill as well as enjoying trips along the Rodwell Trail into Weymouth. A lovely part of the country and a perfect house for enjoying the area, would highly recommend.

“Home away from Home” Truly a cosy, warm and happy place to stay in. We were a family of 12, and stayed for a week. The rooms had different configurations of beds and it was very easy for us to fit large or small groups into them. The location is very convenient and the amenities were very well thought out. Very very pleasant owner who looked after our needs very well.

“Fab stay at Harbour Lodge!” Having stayed at Mudeford a fair few times, Harbour Lodge was probably one of our best stays. With 3 boys, 6, 4 and 1, the owner Jennifer was very accomodating. The lodge is extremely cosy, a home from home, loved the small touches lettuce and herbs growing outside the door, canvas prints of Mudeford on the walls all for sale, loved the beach side decor. Great food at the Noisy Lobster, crabbing every morning, beautiful sunsets and great use of the pool. All in all a lovely practical easy place to stay with kids.

“Lovely apartment, convenient and well equipped” We enjoyed our stay at The Farthings. It is a lovely apartment, very well equipped and the car parking was invaluable. It was not as quiet as we had hoped because it is situated near to a busy roundabout and we were woken at 5.30 am every morning with deliveries to the hotel next-door. However, this did not spoil our stay as we are early risers. Also, the location is very convenient for the promenade, pier and town.

“Lovely little house in a great location” We recently stayed here over the easter weekend and had a great time. The house was lovely and clean, with lots of space for family fun. There was a beach not even a minute walk away and was in a great location meaning we were able to visit monkey world, swanage steam train and Weymouth beach and sea life too, all of which my toddler loved.

Beach Bliss - plot 104 Sandhills Park Mudeford
A great place to stay.

We loved our 4 nights in Beach Bliss, very comfortable and equipped with everything you need. The en-suite toilet for the double room was particularly useful. Lovely swimming pool on site was only a few yards away and perfect for cooling off in the very hot weather during our stay. The empty beaches around the front of Hengistbury Head are worth visiting by the Ferry to the Spit.see more

Well equiped, excellent location

Seascapes is well equipped with everything you could need - the location is amazing, very close to the club house and swimming pool and short walk through the site to the beach. We were very lucky with the weather and it was like the Mediterranean! The pool was beautiful and clean with loungers and umbrellas around it. The beach shop has a bakery and sells fresh croissants and pain-au-chocolat daily. Icecream is available from numerous locations all only a short walk away. Crabbing on the quay was a big hit with the children as was a short ferry ride to Hengistbury head. The caravan was spacious in terms of living room and main bedroom. The shower room was adequate and the second bedroom was small. It was fine for two children. There was an electric fan which was a real blessing in the very hot weather.see more

Returning customer 2018

After staying last summer we looked into returning to Bournemouth and after a quick search of all the flats apartments in the area decided it was a no brainier to go back to the regency. The owners are the most helpful you could get ,the flats are lovely well kept and in a brilliant location near Bournemouth via the park or side roads and Westbourne is just up the street with bars and resteraunts,the regency has plenty of parking spaces where other places you have to park on the street and having visited the area many times the streets are congested ,it has a lovely big secure private back garden which was ideal for our toddler to play in.would fully recommend the flats for all ,we will be going back in the future. Thanks Becky and family for a lovely holiday L and J.see more
