Perfect location, close to everything yet quiet and private. The owners are very accommodating, everything you needed and more was available in the apartment. It was all lovely and tidy and if I go back to Swanage this is where we would stay again. I would highly recommend to anyone.

“Great location in the heart of swanage”
Reviewed 8 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The property is clean and fully equipped with all you need for an enjoyable stay.The owners are really helpful and even left us some breakfast croissants which were much appreciated after our early start. The private enclosed courtyard garden is a lovely place to sit and relax after a day out, you wouldn't know you were in the centre of town it's so peaceful, and the smaller birds seem to enjoy it as well. Loved not having to get in the car everyday, everything is just around the corner. Private secure parking was a bonus.

“A charming place to stay.”
Reviewed 24 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The location is central, just a minute's walk to the beach and convenient for all the town's amenities, including the steam railway, but is also in a very quiet location with no traffic noise or disturbance from other holiday-makers.

The accommodation was spacious enough for us to be able to relax with two young children and the furnishing and fittings were all of high quality with attractive decoration.

The couple who own the property are very helpful.

I would recommend here as an ideal base from which to explore Swanage and it is also a very relaxing flat to chill out in when you don't feel like going out, as it has a lovely little secluded patio-garden and conservatory.

“Excellent accommodation in super location”
Reviewed 16 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Very comfortable accommodation in this pretty, spaceous cottage with amazing amount of storage space. Everything provided that one could wish for and on arrival a waiting tea table complete with scones was a much-appreciated welcome. The location was wonderfully convenient and also quiet, despite its proximity to the High Street and beach. Swanage itself was a great place to enjoy the sea, lovely walks and many places of interest easily reachable by good bus service and train.

“Convenient Location (mobility impaired), Well Equiped, Excellent.”
Reviewed 30 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Our reason for choosing was the location - and we were not disappointed. Ground floor with everything nearby - seafront, shops, restaurants, buses, taxis. End of pier to catch a boat is further, but plenty of benches on route!

Pleasant, secluded courtyard garden. Conservatory would be a good refuge if it rained.
The property was a real 'homefromhome' very well equipped to a high standard, plenty of storage space and thoughtful extras. Wouldn't hesitate to rebook in future.

Met by Ian and Jane who were very welcoming and provided tea / biscuits on arrival. They are on hand if needed but are not intrusive.

Car park permit available if needed, but be aware property is not accessible by car and unsuitable for wheelchair access. Not a problem if arranged for someone to pick you up as near library so easy to find.

Caught open top bus from Bournemouth station (combined bus/rail tickets available) - really felt the holiday had got underway. The 275 bus route to Wareham via Kimmeridge is a secret 'must do' scenic gem, a trip recommended, shame its only once a week! Walkers might find it useful.

Compton Acres worth a visit (buses 50/52).
Durlston Country Park easy to get to (bus 5), castle, views, restaurant - but if you wander too far benches are in short supply!
