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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The Lookout does exactly what it says on the tin!! Perfect location, lovely cottage - the owners have thought of everything. We had a wonderful, relaxing holiday - and even the weather played ball.

The property was very clean and well equipped. The secure, secluded garden was perfect for my dog. It was in the countryside but fairly close to Swanage. Although on a busy B road, at night there was hardly any traffic and was quiet inside the property. On a bus route to Swanage and Poole. Good walks close by the property.

We always look for something quiet and different when we book a break. The Lookout did not disappoint. We were made to feel welcome from the minute that we arrived. The welcome package was much appreciated as was the personal touch from Michael, our host. The cottage is well equipped having everything that we needed. Some lovely walks directly from the property which really nice. Overall we had a wonderful week in a beautiful location. Thank you to Michael and Sally, we had a great time.

My husband and I, and our Cavapoo dog, had a very relaxing stay at The Look Out. The property had everything we needed, including an enclosed garden for the dog, and was furnished beautifully. A perfect place to stay, to explore the beautiful Corfe Castle village and Swanage. We had a very mixed bag of weather though … 2 fine and dry days to see the area … and two very wet and windy days, where we hunkered down in the cottage and relaxed with everything we needed. The gift of a pot of Devon Honey upon arrival was a lovely touch along with a personal written greeting. Great communication with owners, who even posted my warm headband back to me when I left it behind! Thank you Michael. Highly recommend The Look Out .. and we will return as we want to visit more of the local area. Thank you Michael and Sally for a wonderful break.

Really nice cosy little cottage, very comfortable and convenient for accommodating a small family with a dog. Our teenager loved her bedroom with round windows and a view of the Corfe Castle. The walking path running beside the property is easy to go for a walk to the seaside or to a good pub (best real ale in Dorset) in a nearby village. Hosts are very friendly and provided everything very nicely, including tasty biscuits and milk. There is a real fireplace in the cottage, however the central heating kept us very warm, so there was no need to venture into lighting a fire. Thoughtfully provided dog blankets were very useful as well. Perfect location for exploring Purbeck, and we visited quite a few places during our stay. Our dog liked playing in the garden and patrolling it in the evening.
