We really enjoyed our stay, not least because we know and love the area very well. The cottage is very handy for all that Purbeck has to offer - the walks, beaches, conservation areas and that amazing store in Studland! The cottage was very clean, comfortable, pretty well equipped and had a very homely atmosphere, which we really enjoyed. We would Read morebook again. Hide

We love this place. Great location, well equipped with decent TV and bus stops outside and great local shop 50 yards away. Banks' Arms short walk for good food. Few changes due to virus but you get by. Third visit and booked for 2021. Had pre contact with Terry White which was very good and Amy Lodge the owner and was very happy all round.

Great location - right opposite the local shop and next to the bus stop (on the line from Swanage to Bournemouth). Short walk to the Studland beaches and easy access to South West coastal path. Cottage could do with a clean up and refresh to make it better value for money.

Great location and handy to have car parking on the premises. Garden is ideal and nice to sit out on the patio area. Tired and in need of a freshen up in terms of paintwork and soft furnishing. Needs a lot more crockery and newer mugs.

I love this cottage that's why we have booked for 2020 already. It is a modern building with an old cottage feel. Plenty of room and good equipment and dcor. Ample parking. Bankes Arms a few minutes away, great food and plenty of it. Fabulous beaches in easy reach, all NT so cafes and toilets abound. And the local village shop across the way and buRead mores stop outside to easy to get to Swanage. Plenty of great food pubs in area. Hide
