This is a lovely cottage within easy reach of all amenities in Wareham. It is very well equipped and comfortable. The small garden at the rear was delightful in the very hot evenings. There is so much to do within easy reach of Wareham and with a very nice pub (with good pub grub) just a few minutes walk away. It suited our party well.
