Fabulous cottage, our second visit - short walk into Swanage with lovely shops and cafes, and of course close to the beach. Very well appointed with all the home comforts needed for a relaxing stay.
Great location, close to town and beach. Excellent facilities. There were three generations between the six of us and the cottage provided for all our needs. Various activities close at hand such as boat trip to Poole from Swanage Pier. Steam train to Corfe Castle from Swanage Station, Studland beaches only ten minutes away. Plus the added luxury of a Swanage Beach Hut!!!! We were blessed with no rain at all during our week and sunshine every day. A most enjoyable family holiday, we would do it again.
We, three adults, stayed at 4 Townsend Road for 4 nights end of March. We can only agree with the many positive reviews. The cottage is very near the town centre, comfortably, tastefully furnished and equipped to a very high standard throughout. You will find everything you could possibly wish for for a relaxing stay.. I could imagine how the loft room would appeal to children.
Communication with Alison and the payment / transfer were all very quick, easy Alison sent all necessary information a few days prior to our arrival, and again as a reminder on our day of arrival. She messaged to ensure all was well after we had arrived and again after we had departed. Her approach is professional yet very personal. It made us feel truly cared for. Thank you for the treats to welcome us, we hope we can stay with you again.
As for things to do, you will find plenty of suggestions in the cottage, and needless to say the surroundings are beautiful.
I was grateful for Alison's advice to book ahead, for dining at the Black Swan 'round the corner. We also had an enjoyable meal at La Trattoria down in town. My sister in law and I definitely ensured that the Chococo chocolate shop made a good profit. Not cheap, but truly excellent chocolate and beautiful gifts, too.
Spent 3 nights at this beautiful cottage with our 3 granddaughters. Perfect location
Lots of sea air, fish and chips and icecream
Cottage is stunning, anything you could want and more. Beautifully decorated and equipped
Cannot wait to return already
Wow lovely cottage. Great space for the kids. Short walk to the beaches and town. Great little steam train.
Can't wait to go back
lovely cottage very comfortable and very well furnished a lot of effort has gone into making this the perfect seaside accomodation, that would be perfect for most families, it had everything we needed, a great location in swanage, just up the hill from the high street, a perfect base for sightseeing all the local spots, lulwoth cove, corfe castle, weymouth, poole and much more.
there is a local store nearby and a local pub next door great for a pint and general pub food, if you dont mind a small roadtrip, one of the best meals we had was at the crab house cafe between weymouth and portland, amazing oysters.
Just returned from a long weekend stay at this cottage, it looks lovely in the photos but is even better when you get there. Beautifully decorated, home from home, well equipped with everything you need. The location is fantastic, great for the town centre, beach, steam railway, walks along the cliffs or for heading about and about in Dorset, oh near to a very nice pub where food was great and decently priced. Can't recommend this enough and we will definitely be back.
