A wealth of attractions are within easy reach including the National Trust's Corfe Castle, sandy beaches at Swanage, Studland or Poole, thousands of acres of nature reserves at Hartland, Arne or Stoborough, great for birdwatchers and nature lovers.

This cottage can not be beaten in location comfort and equipment. Everything you need, down to dog towels, baby buggy and food blitzer. Of the 50+ cottages we have stayed in this beats the lot for what is provided. And the scones, cream, daffodils and the log fire ready set were the icing on the cake.

Nice cottage, comfortable and well equipped. Convenient for Poole, Swanage, Dorchester and south coast. Wareham a very nice little town with all amenities and pretty riverside walks.

Fabulous cottage with lots of additional touches that make you feel right at home. The location is perfect for exploring Wareham and the Isle of Purbeck.

A real home away from home. Perfect for a break with a 6 month old. We couldn't park our car behind the property as it was too big, but we knew this & didn't have a problem finding a space on the street. A lovely base from which we could explore Dorset.
