A gem! Incredibly clean, lovely welcome touches, wifi that doesn't drop out so I could still do necessary work which was a bonus. Bed comfortable and homely touches like blankets for a cooler evening provided. 5 min walk to the beach, 15 max into Swanage and on a bus route. Flat has all needed for a stay and had a lovely week. Parking for us was fiRead morene (mokka car so smaller suv) and didn't need to use for the week! Pub opposite good. If down this way again will definitely try and stay here again. Hide

The accommodation is ideally suited to getting into Swanage for meals and walks and for access to the Ballard downs to get to Old Harry Rocks.

Lovely Flat in a great place. Very warm and cosy. Top quality appliances and crockery. Nice matching wine, champagne and water glasses. King size quilts on both double beds. They even left us milk, biscuits and wine, which was a lovely touch. I would definitely stay again. The only downside would be the outside steps to the property if not very mobRead moreile. Hide

Oystercatcher was a really lovely apartment to stay in. It was well equipped and very comfortable. Cant think of anything it lacked. Swanage was a really good base for a walking holiday, so the apartment is well located for exploring the surrounding area.

A very well thought out apartment, nice dcor, lovely furnishings and top quality bedding and towels. A credit to the owners. We are not much into self catering but we could see everything was there for those that do. Situated close to the beach (5 mins walk) and Centre of town (10 Mins walk) uphill coming back! Parking for one car was a bonus. For Read morethose with mobility issues access to the apartment (1st floor) is by external stair case. Would most certainly book again. Hide
