    “Fantastic place to stay and would thoroughly recommend.”

    We really enjoyed our week exploring beautiful Wareham and Dorset. Leap House is just a stone's throw from the town centre but it was so quiet and peaceful. The house was really great - lovely private terrace at the back which we used every day; and the most comfortable beds and best equipped kitchen of any holiday cottage I've ever rented. (There was no washing machine, but that wasn't an issue for us at all as we were only there for a week). ...

    We really enjoyed our week exploring beautiful Wareham and Dorset. Leap House is just a stone's throw from the town centre but it was so quiet and peaceful. The house was really great - lovely private terrace at the back which we used every day; and the most comfortable beds and best equipped kitchen of any holiday cottage I've ever rented. (There was no washing machine, but that wasn't an issue for us at all as we were only there for a week). Only a couple of very minor niggles - the parking at the rear was quite tight (we weren't able to get a spot on the road at all); and the 'hole' under the carpet just inside the doorway of the master bedroom really needs fixing! Still 10/10 from us :)

    Thank you for taking the time to complete the feedback. It as lovely to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Leap House. Regarding the issue with the 'hole' in the carpet, as soon as we were aware of this issue, house keeping were sent straight out and this has now been resolved. We look forward to welcoming you back to Leap House again. Owner relations

About the location

WAREHAM

Corfe Castle 5 miles; Poole 9 miles; Swanage 11 miles;

Wareham, affectionately known as the ‘Gateway to the Purbecks’ is an ancient Dorset waterside market town. Situated between the River Frome and quaintly named River Piddle, its charming riverside location makes the town a popular holiday destination. Dating back to Saxon times, the town was once surrounded by walls, and became an important port with boats bringing supplies up the River Frome from nearby Poole harbour. Today, the river provides a great playground, you can hire a boat from the attractive quayside and chug your way down the stream, take one of the regular organised boat trips, browse the colourful Saturday market or simply just enjoy an ice cream or a drink relaxing on the Quayside. Whilst seasonally there are also numerous popular events taking place beside the river. A short drive takes you to the Arne peninsula jutting out into Poole Harbour, a designated RSPB reserve, where you can stroll down to the water’s edge, taking in glimpses of the impressive bird population and often viewing some of the resident deer. The friendly seaside resort of Swanage is also easily accessible, where you can experience a traditional family-friendly day out on the beach, or take the coastal path and stop off for refreshment at Durlston Country Park. A real treat is to drive to nearby Corfe Castle and take the vintage steam railway to Swanage. Wareham offers visitors a super Dorset holiday destination at anytime of the year.
