My wife and I stayed for a week at 2 Heath Cottages at the end of June 2013 on the strength of previous glowing reviews on this site. They weren't wrong! As described by others, Denise and Sean are the most genial of hosts. During our stay they struck the perfect balance between providing the personal touch, when requested, but also providing space and freedom to do our own thing in a relaxed and friendly way.
We stayed in the smaller Beech room at the front of the house which still had plenty of room for my wife's immense wardrobe (!) and was perfect for a couple. We slept very well throughout the stay in a very comfortable, huge double bed and the cleanliness and facilities were top notch. The breakfast menu caters for all manner of tastes. Denise's attentiveness was first class when serving and Sean's kitchen duties couldn't be faulted.
The icing on the cake of this B&B is the location. It's on a main road but, due to soundproofing, traffic noise is almost non existant, whilst also having the advantage of a major Dorset bus route with a stop yards from the front entrance. We combined bus trips to Bournemouth; Swanage and Poole during the day with short bus journeys to excellent local bar/restaurants in the evening allowing us to leave the car in the driveway and relax with a drink etc. The few times we used the car was mainly for 3 trips to the world class Monkey World Ape Rescue Centre which is also only 8 miles away.
If you are looking for superb hospitality,unparalleled value for money B&B accommodation with a perfect location to take your pick of "things to do", then don't even think of looking elsewhere. Let your day dawn with Denise and Sean !
