    “There was no means of making coffee at the property.”

    At this price we would have expected a cafetiere or filter coffee facility. We had to buy our own cafetiere to use. There is a coal fired barbeque. Given the awkwardness of purchasing coals and firelighters and disposing of ashes it was no surprise that it had clearly never been used. We would have expected a gas fired barbeque. The difference in levels in the hard surfaced outside patio was a bit of a hazard for toddlers, but I accept there is nothing that can be done about that. Despite the comments above it is a lovely spacious house very convenient for the beach, and so we have re booked for next year

About the location


Wareham 9.7 miles; Poole 20 miles.

The small, family-friendly seaside resort of Swanage is situated at the eastern end of Dorset’s famous Jurassic Coast, on the celebrated Isle of Purbeck and is probably best known for its wonderful, gently shelving golden sands. The little town offers visitors plenty of shops, good pubs and restaurants, some of which specialise in locally caught seafood, and is also well known for its annual jazz festival, which takes place each July. The attractive, Victorian wooden pier offers a great place for a stroll or try fishing, and often used a departure point for divers, it’s a wonderful place to watch the world pass by. The historic Swanage Railway has its terminus in the town and regular nostalgic steam engine trips take tourists for a picturesque 6-mile journey, chugging through lovely countryside to stop just beyond the romantic ruin of Corfe Castle. Nearby Durlston Country Park offers a lovely day out with spectacular coastal walks, dolphin spotting and wildlife watching, together with comfortable viewing points and a well-stocked cafe for a treat after all the fresh air. Take the short drive to Studland, which has one of the finest beaches in the country, surrounded by heathland, together with the regular chain ferry, which crosses the mouth of Poole Harbour to Sandbanks. This truly is a delightful holiday destination at any time of the year.
