Lovely cottage in great location for Swanage beach. Very clean with plenty of room for 6 of us. The little welcome pack was a thoughtful gesture too. Definately coming back

“Lovely location”

Really lovely cottage. Lovely furnishings.
Unfortunately our visit was cut short as our disabled son having just had surgery had to come with us. He didn't settle well so we went home early . The cottage is in a great location for the seafront and shops and loads of eateries including fish n chips.
The only negative for us having to take our son was the property isn't perfect from an accessibility front. We didn't know there was a step between the kitchen and lounge and the all kept tripping over it. Also the coffee table is far too big for the lounge, especially for us as we had a wheelchair, we couldn't manoeuvre round it at all.
So if you don't need an accessible property this is a good property to stay in.

“Perfectly positioned.”
Reviewed 13 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Taunton Cottage was easy to find, Car Parking was easy, we didn't have to worry about squeezing the car into the street. Instructions from Debbie, the owner were spot on and made our arrival very easy.
A couple of hiccups were sorted with the help of Debbie and we were able to thoroughly enjoy our stay in Swanage.
I recommend Taunton Cottage to anyone who wants to explore Swanage and surrounds.
Lovely.

“perfect.”
Reviewed 7 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Good info from the owners made finding the property easy. Very pleased to have a parking space. As our son and family joined us for the bank holiday we had to park one car in the adjoining rd,this wasn't a problem. The property is SO central it could not be better. We could just go out for a morning walk and be back in time for breakfast with the family. Good commute both from London [ family] Devon for us. Although we come from a beautiful place Westward Ho ! we fell in love with Swanage. So much to see and do. Sea front walk, Dulstone Castle Park was fabulous. Walking,bird spotting or just sit at the cafe with a drink. Crabbing with our grandchildren fab,caught huge crabs. Such fun. Will be back. Thankyou.
