We had a sunfilled October week away and loved the house. It catered perfectly for three households coming together to enjoy a family holiday. The house was in a perfect location with access straight onto the heath. 15 mins walk to the beach and only a bus ride away from Bournemouth.

Weather was glorious so we were at the beacRead moreh most days but there are many places to explore like Swanage, Corfe castle nearby and beyond! Well equipped kitchen but bring oven gloves! Hide

A lovely property in a perfect location ideally suited for a family with children. For the price some things could be improved. The two ring hob is inadequate for this property and well past its sell-by date: one of the two rings was only partially working during my stay. Storage is limited and not maximised. The grass should be cut more regularly Read moreand the patio needs weeding. Recycling arrangements are unhelpful. Some decluttering is needed. However, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Hide
