“Fabulous cosy cottage in friendly seaside town”
Reviewed 26 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Just got back from a long weekend here with friends and had a wonderful time. The cottage is very warm and cosy, has welcoming fire places and gloriously decorated. It's also very well appointed and had everything we needed to have lovely meals in the evening. The pub (The Black Swan) on the corner is less than a minutes walk away and seemed to have a good menu, and a family area for people with kids. We walked into Swanage in less than 15 minutes, so location was perfect. Lots of things to do here, plenty of cafes and restaurants - enjoyed a very nice meal once evening at a new place called Canteen. Will definitely return!

“Fabulous!”
Reviewed 23 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Upon walking into this beautifull cottage it was obvious that Alison the owner had fabulous taste. The decor was gorgeous and nothing had been overlooked. I have been staying in Swanage for the last 27 years and this cottage is the best have stayed in. I can't wait to return next year. It truly is a home from home. The kids loved the attic room. Everything in the house reeks of quality. The welcome gifts were appreciated, even though I am not supposed to eat sugar I soon polished off the biscuits. Thank you for letting us stay. It was lovely.

We have just returned from a wonderful 4 night stay in this beautiful home. Nothing has been over looked. It is so well maintained, beautifully decorated and very well equipped. We can't speak highly enough of the place and the owner who was very friendly, helpful and always available at the end of the phone. Thanks Alison, we can't wait to return.

“Beautiful seaside cottage - great for family holiday.”
Reviewed 4 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed at this cottage with our two young children (7 and 18 months) in August and had a fanstastic holiday. The cottage is beautifully decorated with everything you need. My daughter loved the bunk bed pirate room, and the chill out room at the top is perfect with seaviews, a stereo, tv and a small snooker table! Booking was really easy, and Alison was very very helpful. The cottage is in a good location very near the high street and beach, and there is a well stocked shop 1 minute away and a lovely pub with good food 1 minute away (you don't hear any noise though). The surrounding area is beautiful and you can get around very easily even without a car.

I would definately recommend this cottage to friends.
