“Handy little house”
Reviewed 26 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here in such a good location close to to the best bits of Swanage - including the shops, beach, pier and restaurants and with private parking to boot. There's even a paper shop open till late opposite that sells various comestibles. Handy.

The king-sized bed was very welcome. A well-equipped house with all you could want. Good tv, wi-fi etc. We appreciated the tea, coffee and milk etc after such a long drive to get here.

We went as the season was ending, but there were still nearby pubs and clubs busy in the evenings. Despite this we were not bothered by noise: two clubs played loud music until 11.45 pm on Friday and Saturday but this did not disturb our sleep as we go to bed late.

Thanks Sarah.

“Superb cottage, clean and comfortable”
Reviewed 25 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this cottage.. Ideal location in the centre of Swanage with the beach, shops, pubs and restaurants all within a few minutes walk and having its on parking space was a bonus. We were lucky with the weather - wall to wall sunshine so the roof terrace was a great place to sit and relax at the end of the day.

Reviewed 7 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Sarah the owner is accommodating and easy to contact she has equipped this lovely town cottage with everything you need on a holiday break.
Beds comfy lots of hot water and central heating efficient.
Large lounge excellent when you have children wanting indoor play and the very easy access to super vibrant town of Swanage so useful,
So many places to explore we revisited Durdle Dor, Dancing Ledges, Kimmeridge,Studland beach, Blue Lagoon and the nearby Durlston Country Parkall great days out.
Handy corner shop opposite stocks so much ,balcony a bonus and parking space ideal.

“Highly recommended cottage”
Reviewed 30 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Sarah has a beautiful home in the centre of Swanage. Conveniently located to some great stores, coffee shops and the beach, and with easy access to the main roads to all the local attractions.

Sarah maintains her rental to a high standard, it's clean with good utilities, spacious and has off road parking. Any queries and Sarah's quick to respond.

We had a fab holiday in Swanage, a large part due to convenience of where we were and the comfort of the property.
