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.

We loved the comfortable accommodation, with nice touches such as milk in the fridge, wine and biscuits too - very thoughtful! Near to local pub which did excellent food. On the Breezer bus route for trips to Studland or Bournemouth- a very scenic ride!

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

This is a lovely holiday flat, well equipped with welcome basket of tea bags coffee bags sugar milk and a bottle of wine. Close to the seafront and very cosy. Only thing to be wary of are the steep steps up to the front door. Very pleased with our week.

The accommodation was clean and tidy. Parking outside was better than I expected and off-road which always helps. Location is pretty good and a nice short walk to the shops and restaurants. The kitchen is small and perfectly adequate as we didn't plan to cook during the week but if you were looking for a work surface you would be in some difficultyRead more. TV too small for us but might be fine for others who are not bothered about that sort of thing. Generally pleased overall. Hide

This is a well equipped flat in a good location particularly for coastal walking and going into Swanage town centre. We walked to Middle beach at Studland and also Dancing Ledge via Duriston Country Park. The steps leading up to the flat might be difficult for less mobile people.

A clean and comfortable first floor apartment about a one mile walk from the town centre. Its reached via a steep outside flight of stairs, so is unsuitable for anyone with disabilties. WiFi works well, TV because of Ariel problems is a bit hit and miss and unwatchable at times The place is fully Covid compliant and we felt very safe and secure thaRead morenks Hide

We love this well-cared for and well-situated flat. It's a place of beauty and rest. You can get down to the beach or up onto the cliffs in a few minutes and then come home to relax. The owners have taken a lot of care to make this place hospitable.
