We needed to be somewhere really handy as I do not drive. The cottage was next to all amenities and yet had such a peaceful feeling. Girls and I enjoyed our stay.

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.
