The Old School House was absolutely lovely, clean cosy and with everything needed for comfortable stay, with a 15 minute walk to the centre of Swanage. Would not hesitate to return..

We had a lovely week away in Swanage. The location is great and is only a 20 minute walk to the town / beach and we were able to drive to all the nearby sites in less than half an hour. The owners of the property were in touch before we arrived and checked that everything was OK which was incredibly welcoming. You can tell that a lot of care has goRead morene into the property and there were lots of helpful tips for making the most of our stay. Hide

Property was exactly as it appeared on the website (not always the case) and more than fulfilled my expectations. Lovingly furnished with lots of little extras such as a record deck and vinyl.Fully furnished with all the kitchen equipment you could hope for and very nice toiletries/towels etc. The host was always contactable and gave detailed instrRead moreuctions on access when you first arrive. Location was further from the beach than I realised but there is a bus stop at the bottom of the road so fine Hide

Great character building, well decorated, clean and comfortable. About a mile walk into Swanage town but bus stop not far away and only about a mile up to the coast path so ideal for walkers who want to explore all the scenery Swanage has to offer. Great location.
