"Perfect location for everything we had planned on visiting, particularly Monkey World Rescue Centre which should not be missed, we had two full days there and could have gone oftener but for the fact the boys also wanted to see the Tank and Armoured Vehicle museum at Bovington Barracks and Base. Seaside within easy reach, local produce available including honey and soft fruits and locally made cheeses. Staying in the cottage meant we had the choice of when and what to eat, the freedom of coming and going to our own timetable and it gave us family time which was a rare treat. Nowadays everyone is so busy we tend to forget the importance of just relaxing and enjoying time together. The cottage fitted the bill beautifully. Wishing you continued success.

Lizards Rest

This was the perfect holiday accommodation for us. The ground floor bedroom, shower room and large living room and dining room provided very good access for my elderly mother who occasionally uses a wheelchair. Access to the garden and car parking was also good. The kitchen/laundry were well-equipped. The town of Swanage was just a couple of minutes easy walking away as was the beach. We had a very good holiday and overall the weather was kind to us and we were able to get out and explore the surrounding countryside and towns every day. We would recommend Lizard's Rest to any extended family looking for traditional seaside accommodation.

Woodland Falls

The accommodation exceeded our expectations. very secluded spot on what is otherwise a busy caravan park. The additional gate entrance, and wider spacing, especially on this property with its' own little lawn, waterfall and pond, very sunny terrace (when the sun was shining!) and sheltered from the wind, made it a wonderful base for my elderly parents and ourselves. Nicely equipped. The club house was not for us, but can see it is fantastic for families with children. Fish and chip shop on site has some of the best fish we have had! Highly recommend.
LB 16/05/14 - 24/05/14

We had a wonderful week in Denbur Cottage. The location is peaceful and secluded but also a great base for exploring a huge range of attractions and locations in Dorset and the New Forest.

Our young children loved the garden - and we all appreciated the cake that was provided for us on arrival! We would not hesitate to recommend Denbur Cottage for a family break.

We had a lovely stay at Dovecote House. The property was located in a very quiet area and ideal for a relaxing break. It was furnished very well and equipped with all that we needed.

On arrival it was nice to have milk, biscuits and a bottle of red wine, these were very much appreciated. Dovecote House supplied us with everything that we needed for a fantastic week away. We will certainly look to book Dovecote House in the future.

The Old Dairy

Really pleased with the location, so convenient for all our outings, Lulworth Cove, Wareham, and Swanage. Fantastic timing for so many events. The Old Dairy, was so relaxing and cosy a real pleasure. Loved the bunnies and we even had a lizard on the patio one night. Will be booking again!

Denbur Cottage

Beautiful cottage tastefully decorated in a perfect, tranquil location. It was very welcoming, with fresh scones awaiting us and fresh flowers. I only wish we could have stayed longer. The location is very central for visiting the New Forest and coast. We had a wonderful stay and cannot recommend it highly enough. We'll be back!
Mrs J Willisson, Broadstairs 04/08/13 - 08/08/13

Priory Farm Cottage

Absolutely amazing place. I feel so lucky to have stayed here. The kids really enjoyed themselves in the garden and with all the toys and books, which made for a relaxed and happy holiday for the grown-ups. The cottage (and it's fridge) was so well stocked and beautifully designed, it's a real disappointment to be home! I hope very much to visit again, and would gladly go one year without a holiday, to have this place the year after.

Cranborne Apt

We are a family of three and enjoyed our stay over the Swanage Carnival Week. The flat was a home from home and we appreciated the time and trouble the owners' had gone to, to make this possible such as good quality bed linen and luxurious sofas. As this flat came with a parking space, we didn't need to worry about finding an off road parking space (most are only for an hour, unless you pay for the long stay car park!)

Beautiful cottage in a lovely countryside location but only short drive to other locations/facilities. Walking from the door. Wildlife watching from lounge. Everything in cottage was a high standard and the welcome pack was the best we had ever had.The information file was really useful both in telling us about the cottage and things to do/see in the area.

This is the second time of staying in this cottage and we'll almost certainly be back again. The location, for us, is ideal, the village is beautiful with plenty of places to walk and the accommodation suits us perfectly. The owner was incredibly helpful to us when I went to her with a question and she went the extra mile to see if she could help us.
