“Fantastic location & plenty of space”

We were a party of 3 couples and a child and there was plenty of space for us all. The location of The Quarterdeck is brilliant as can be in the town within 10-15 minutes. The facilities at the house are brilliant and the welcome pack is wonderful. We did have a couple of issues on our stay in regards to the hob but they have already arranged for this to be replaced and we have an to advise of an issue with the downstairs toilet but with another 2 in the house it was not a problem.

We love Swanage, but wanted a house that would let us all have space to relax and chill out in, without stepping on each other's toes.
Plenty of this at The Quarterdeck.
Adequate bathrooms, huge utility area, a games room and open plan lounge,kitchen and dining room.
Easy walk to the beach even with little ones. We even rented a beach hut on the sea front to make this holiday suit everyone.

“Perfect holiday home in an ideal location.”

We found the house every thing the web site said and more. Our group consisted of 6 adults and we never felt space was a problem. The location was excellent as it is just a 5 minute walk down to the beach to paddle! We all dashed to the balcony when we heard the steam train, to watch the steam curling up through the trees giving us an idea of a bygone era.
The only slight issue was when the dish washer broke down, this was replaced promptly and efficiently - Thanks to Adrian the handy man!
Yes we would go here again and Many Thanks to Chris and Shona for ensuring we had a happy holiday (and not spend all-day washing the dishes)

“Excellent base to explore Swanage and surrounnnding area”
Reviewed 28 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Thank you to the owners of this lovely property for providing such a well equipped, modern, yet homely holiday home. We enjoyed our stay immensely having never been to Swanage before and are especially grateful for the extra touches we requested for our birthday celebrations. This property is extremely well located for access to both the beach and town and we would be delighted to stay again in the future.

“Lovely house in perfect location for family gathering”
Reviewed 22 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Everything was perfect in the house and we were so lucky to have lovely warm weather so sat on the balcony and in the garden soaking up the sun. The location was ideal for strolling to beach or chops/restaurants but best of all for access to lovely long coastal walks and cream teas!
