“Fabulous Seaside Cottage”
Reviewed 22 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014
1
person found this review helpful

Fabulous seaside cottage in Swanage. It is beautifully furnished and manages to feel both cosy and luxurious at the same time. It has everything a family of group of friends could need for a short break or a week at the seaside.
Although we have been back to the cottage several times now, it never disappoints and the minute you arrive you feel at home.
The Dorset weather was incredibly kind to us and we were lucky enough to be able to spend the weekend walking in the sunshine - in March!
Recommend the walk up and over the hills, past the lighthouse and Tilly Whims Caves and back to town via the castle. Also try the shore walk past the lifeboat.
There are some great shops, restaurants and cafe's in town, a bit like stepping back in time. It is a great base to visit the delights of Dorset but you could just as easily park up and not leave town until it's time to leave.
Highly recommended and know we'll be back again soon.

“Elegant, relaxed and charming!”
Reviewed 3 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013

A perfect place to stay, the cottage is not only beautifully presented throughout, but also thoughtfully equipped. We made the most of the walking books provided and enjoyed exploring the local area. Swanage is delightful, with independent shops, restaurants and cafes. The sandy beach is a short stroll away. A long weekend was not long enough, in this cosy cottage - our boys have made us promise we will return!

“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!
