“Great house in an excellent location.”
Reviewed 12 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We had a brilliant time and really enjoyed staying in this house, we have been coming to Swanage for the last 5 years and this house is the best one we have stayed in! Perfect location, shops and restaurants on the doorstep and the beach just over the road.
The house is lovely and spacious and the kitchen is well equipped, the kids said the beds were comfy and so was the double bed.
We would definitely stay here again, hopefully next Easter!
Thanks Sarah x

“Loved This Place!”
Reviewed 14 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

My husband and I and our dog went to this lovely property for a short break. We have been to Swanage several times and were delighted with the location, which truly is in the heart of Swanage! The booking process was extremely easy and communications with the owner were a pleasure. The property is very well equipped and looks newly refurbished and is very clean (with a gorgeous bathroom!). The king size bed was very comfortable and the decking area out of the master bedroom was an added bonus, though probably much more appreciated in summer! The seated area of the open plan living/dining room was cosy, and had a stock of books which was a nice touch. The chairs are on the hard side as someone else stated but we found them ok.
The location is ideal and literally a couple of minutes walk to the sea. This may not be so good for someone with mobility issues depending upon the severity, as the property is on quite a steep slope, only a few yards from the flat of the High street though so very good for the area! I am looking forward to staying there again in the future.
Whilst there we visited an American Diner called THE VIEW. Super place, smashing breakfast and dog friendly. We also got an Indian takeaway from NIHAL Spice, best I've had in ages!

“Handy little house”
Reviewed 25 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here in such a good location close to to the best bits of Swanage - including the shops, beach, pier and restaurants and with private parking to boot. There's even a paper shop open till late opposite that sells various comestibles. Handy.

The king-sized bed was very welcome. A well-equipped house with all you could want. Good tv, wi-fi etc. We appreciated the tea, coffee and milk etc after such a long drive to get here.

We went as the season was ending, but there were still nearby pubs and clubs busy in the evenings. Despite this we were not bothered by noise: two clubs played loud music until 11.45 pm on Friday and Saturday but this did not disturb our sleep as we go to bed late.

Thanks Sarah.

“Superb cottage, clean and comfortable”
Reviewed 25 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this cottage.. Ideal location in the centre of Swanage with the beach, shops, pubs and restaurants all within a few minutes walk and having its on parking space was a bonus. We were lucky with the weather - wall to wall sunshine so the roof terrace was a great place to sit and relax at the end of the day.

“Highly recommended cottage”
Reviewed 29 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Sarah has a beautiful home in the centre of Swanage. Conveniently located to some great stores, coffee shops and the beach, and with easy access to the main roads to all the local attractions.

Sarah maintains her rental to a high standard, it's clean with good utilities, spacious and has off road parking. Any queries and Sarah's quick to respond.

We had a fab holiday in Swanage, a large part due to convenience of where we were and the comfort of the property.
