“An oasis in the heart of Swanage”
Reviewed 13 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

My family and i spent a very special Easter weekend at Millpond Cottage. We have unanimously agreed that we will return. The cottage, with its beautiful garden, is very comfortable and is set beside this picturesque pond decorated with ducks, an old stone bridge, weeping willows and rows of old cottages. It really is an oasis set right in the heart of Swanage. it is well within walking distance to the beach and shops yet tranquil enough to believe you are deep within the country. It is also brilliantly located to visit other tourist attractions like Durdle Door, Lulworth Cove and Corfe Castle. We highly recommend staying there.

“absolutely stunning”
Reviewed 13 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

A beautiful cottage. Home from home and furnished to a very high spec. spotless and extremely comfortable. We would have no hesitation in booking again. Lovely garden which I would imagine that during the right time of year would be lovely to spend time in. Very close to everything, easy walking distance to everything. lovely pub with great food and ale very close by. Swanage is a lovely traditional town with lovely shops and some amazing scenery with a really Lovely beach. All in all a really really lovely cottage and a really really lovely place.

“A beautiful oasis in Dorset”
Reviewed 30 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

A quite lovely house set by the millpond and church. The house is large and very comfortably furnished, the garden is simply stunning, you could be forgiven if you thought you were in the middle of the countryside. We had a tranquil, relaxing and peaceful holiday

“Lovely Cottage”
Reviewed 14 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The service we received in booking this property was excellent our queries were answered quickly. We have family connections to Swanage and have visited many times and so we had seen the Millpond cottage and we were pleased to be in it and its lovely garden.
The accommodation was excellent with two sitting rooms and there was a large table with chairs in the garden where we ate breakfast every day. All the rooms had lovely views of the Millpond and there was a folder containing details of the history of the area which was interesting. We would all like to visit again.

“Idyllic Setting”
Reviewed 12 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The best accommodation we have stayed in at Swanage. A beautiful and peaceful setting but still has the convenience of a short walk to the shops and seafront. It was very comfortable and was perfect for our time at Swanage. Highly recommend.
