Lovely character cottage, close to lots of pubs, restaurants and shops and of course the beach, but tucked away on a quieter road. Courtyard tiny, but just enough room to sit and have a coffee. Very pleasant place.

Two Hoots is a wonderfully quirky historic little cottage in a great location for exploring Swanage. We easily found on street parking a few minutes walk away,

Hopefully the bedding is checked without relying on guests to strip the beds. It should not be assumed that any bedding left on the beds has not been used. Some guests might not like having to strip the beds at the end of their stay. This wont prevent us staying again but it was quite unpleasant and should be noted.

Perfect location and size for 2 of us, me and my adult son. It's great being able to walk into the town for beaches and a wide variety of cafes/restaurants.

Property was in a great location, within walking distance of the beach and town centre. Parking nearby was difficult to find and the property itself was a bit cramped for 3 adults and a dog.
