Lovely location and cottage feel but kitchen very small for property size. Decor very modern and fresh and parking space a great benefit (even though very tight). Close to town and seafront but noisy on a few evenings as carnival week celebrations. Cottage Rating: 3 Stars

Wow what a location and what a beautifully restored cottage - gorgeously decorated, everything we needed provided and so central it was the perfect place for our family (with 3 yr old) to holiday in. Kitchen bits, kids equipment, games, fire logs, parking, everything we needed. Can't wait to return. Cottage Rating: 5 Stars

Comfortable welcoming cottage in very convenient location near beach and shops. We stayed in December and the cottage was beautifully decorated for Christmas. We appreciated everything was left for us to light the fire and relax. Highly recommended. Cottage Rating: 5 Stars

Fabulous cottage. Really appreciated that the owners thought about what it feels like to be in a rental cottage so little things like tea towels and washing liquid and hand wash were provided. Well equipped kitchen. Lovely decor and a real home from home. Kids loved being so near beach 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.
