This is a smashing property close to town yet on a quiet street. Lots of communal space as well as very comfortable bedrooms for privacy if needed. The equipment is very good and, in February when we stayed, the house was very cosy. We had a great big family stay here, and all who came (13 to 72 years old) loved the place. Wed expected parking to bRead moree a bit iffy, but it wasnt. If you want a really comfortable all purpose holiday home in Swanage, this is it. Hide

Plenty of room throughout the property both in living and sleeping spaces. A very good light , well modernised and well equipped holiday property. We have beeRead moren holidaying in Swanage since 1983 in many properties so we know a good one when we see it. Hide
