The pretty little courtyard garden is a delight and we were lucky enough to have a couple of sunny days to sit in it with the newspapers and mugs of tea. Sofas and beds are all very comfortable and the kitchen is incredibly well equipped. Fabulous walks right from the door over the common or by the river and glorious beaches just a short car journeRead morey. First time we have stayed in Wareham and it made a perfect base. From the cottage you can walk to the shops and pubs in minutes. Hide
