Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Fabulous place a in great location and very spacious
This is a Fabulous house with great views. Ideal for a large faimily or couples sleep 9 people with plenty of space and seating for all. We really enjoyed our time at Compass Cattage with eight of our family staying at various times over the week. Worth Matravers is a quaint and very friendly villege with The Square and Compass just a few minutes walk away. It is also a walkers paradise. We will most certainly be staying again!

Peaceful
Lovely quiet location, great coastal path walks, quirky old pub within walking distance with museum and live music. House was very comfortable and adequately equipped and spotlessly clean. Beautiful big lounge with views of the sea. Would easily go back another time.

Lovely cottage, in a perfect location.
Great location, central for Swanage, Corfe Castle, Lulworth Cove, Wareham, Studland Bay and much, much more! Cottage was very clean and comfortable, we all had a couch each! Excellent facilities for cooking, washing, entertainment etc...perfect for families. The village, which is beautiful, is complemented by a good pub and tea rooms. Favourite memories are of the sea view and the many walks available. Many thanks to Wendy for making her lovely cottage available.
