Cottage Reviews

Dovecote House

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. It was also a bonus to have a child stair gate, high chair and travel cot. We found the large veranda ideal and a very safe area for our 2 year old to run around. 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.

Pinnacles Flat 1

Perfect position, our four grandchildren loved the beach, crabbing and the older one fishing from the pier. The apartment had plenty of space for all of us and was very comfortable. Swanage is the perfect family resort.
SN, Bedhampton 10/08/13 - 17/08/13

Valley View

The house was fantastic. Plenty of space with two lounges and a separate large dining room (which unfortunately I used as my office for the week). As for the bedrooms, very spacious - and some of the most corfortable beds you will ever find in a holiay home. We also really appreciated the fact that there were dishwasher tablets, hand soap, 'doggie bags', etc (the list goes on... a very nice touch. Great garden with space for children and dog to burn energy. They loved the steam train passing the bottom of the garden, and picking blackberries.
CD, Tolliers Lane 10/08/13 - 17/08/13

A lovely cottage and a very warm welcome from the owners. Fantastic area and lots to do with small children although its essential to drive!
CD, Stafford 03/08/13 - 10/08/13

Orchard View

Just back from a brilliant stay at Orchard View. Lovely clean cottage, very peaceful and a great location for travelling to both Poole and the Jurassic coast. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Our children loved coming back to play tennis and swim in the pool.
SR 03/08/13 - 10/08/13

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!

MA 03/08/13 - 10/08/13

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.

27/07/13 - 03/08/13

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!)
27/07/13 - 03/08/13

Having been before we knew what to expect - and we were not disappointed!

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.
DD, Morpeth 25/05/13 - 01/06/13

Exofficio

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.

Absolutley eveything about the cottage was perfect. We loved the location, the garden was a sun trap, everything we could possibly need was provided and we even had the luxury of wifi.
