The cottage is amazing. A very, very lovely place. Furnished with a lot of love for details. The cottage has all what you need to have wonderfull days in Swanage. It is located central in the village and also near by the sea.
It was hot when we were there, and this place was a great retreat. Our daughter loved the bunk beds and upper floor while we were happy to chill out below and on the terrace. Pub next door was not too loud and served a good supper. Only gripe was condition of crockery and cutlery, presumably from previous guests, but soon washed up / over.
Thoroughly enjoyed a break in Swanage. The property was beautifully presented throughout and was close to all facilities. Well situated for walks into the countryside and beach.
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.
