A lovely old cottage, perfect for walkers. Close to footpaths to Swanage and Durlston, an excellent local shop, Indian restaurant and a fish & chip shop. Bus stop only 5 mins walk away. The cottage has a tiny courtyard garden which is pleasant to sit in, although is shady for much of the day. Definitely not for less mobile people - the steep, nRead morearrow, curving staircase is a challenge. Beware the low beam at the entrance of the stairs - it caught me out twice! The lounge is very dark - lights needed switching on during daylight hours. I imagine it would be cosy in the winter - the logburner would soon warm the place up. The main bedroom is large and light. Comfortable bed and plenty of storage. The single bedroom is cosy. The bathroom has a bath with handheld shower - this is fine however there is no shower curtain so we found it easier to sit in the bath to hair wash. It's a good 20-25 mins walk into the town and the beach - a little longer on the return as there are some uphill slopes. Overall, it is an ideal and comfortable place to stay, especially for people who enjoy walking. Hide

The cottage is adorable.but listen to advice on mobility issues as the stairs are difficultbut add to the character. But a great location and the log burner was such a lovely comfort.

As a whole the property needs new everything, Sofa is very warn and uncomfortable, splits apart to reveal a mousetrap. Dishwasher doesnt really work, new pots and pans needed as they seem to burn and set off the smoke alarm. Location is superb but for the money expected a little more of a finishing touch, higher quality.

A cozy little cottage which we have visited before and found it an ideal position to get around. The bed was very squeaky and needs improving on to ensure a restful night . The sofa is very low and not ideal for the older generation, but this said we had a lovely stay.
