We can not recommend this cottage. The garden and the location of the cottage is very nice, but all in all the cottage itself was very dissappointing. The cottage is definitely not worth the money. There are too many things which need to be repaired or modernized. Cottage Rating: 1 Stars

What a great place to stay. Lovely location with easy walk to Swanage sea front, shops and pubs. Plenty of room, good garden and the kitchen was well equipped too. Cottage Rating: 5 Stars

Stephen Butler - Oct 2014

A very pleasant cottage and garden in an excellent location. It was particularly refreshing to find a holiday home, for once, not over-stuffed with knick-knacks and mismatched, random old furniture Cottage Rating: 4 Stars

John Hornsby - Jul 2014

A purely delightful cottage in an idyllic setting. Very peaceful with a lovely garden to pass an evening with a bottle of wine. Why go abroad for your holiday when you've got all this. Cottage Rating: 5 Stars

The Isle of Purbeck in Dorset

The Isle of Purbeck is a peninsular of land located in the South of Dorset and is famous for its sandy beaches, beautiful countryside and the Jurassic Coast World Heritage site. The sea surrounds Purbeck on three sides and nowhere is for from the coast. Apart from the small town of Swanage, the Isle of Purbeck is made up of small rural hamlets and traditional villages.

The North side of Purbeck is dominated by a wooded and heathland nature reserve and where it meets the water of Poole Harbour it attracts a great deal of bird life. The East coast of Purbeck is known for the two long sandy beaches at Studland and Swanage but also for the limestone pillars at Old Harry's Rocks. Along the South Coast is the start of the Jurassic Coast which is characterised by impressive coastal formations like Dancing Ledge and Durdle Door but also for quiet coves and peaceful beaches for swimming.

Much of Purbeck has been declared an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the vast majority of Purbeck remains in the hands of nature. This is ideal for walkers and cyclists who are free to explore large areas of countryside and take in a number of wondrous locations.

The Isle of Purbeck has a number of events which take place throughout the year. To find out more about local events go to our Purbeck Events pages.
