The East coast of Purbeck is known for the two long sandy beaches at Studland and Swanage but also for the limestone pillars at Old Harry's Rocks. Along the South Coast is the start of the Jurassic Coast which is characterised by impressive coastal formations like Dancing Ledge and Durdle Door but also for quiet coves and peaceful beaches for swimming.

Sam - Jul 2010 4 Star Holiday Cottage Customer Rating

The only issue we had was that the garden at the top was not secure. We felt a bit hemmed in the bottom patio. It meant my 3 year old wasn't free to play; a gate across the top garden and one across the top of the steps would make the cottage perfect. Overall Rating: 4 Stars
