“Absolutely the place to stay...excellent!”
Reviewed 11 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

If you would like to live in an Architectural Digest setting in the main area of Swanage, a few minutes from the best part of the beach, then this is your place. The owner Alison was outstanding to deal with and the home comes equipped with everything you need and more. We were a family consisting of a family of four (an 11 and 13 year old) and another husband and wife. The loft is a secret getaway for children with a toilet/sink and the most gorgeous view of the ocean and town. The second level has a full bathroom and three bedrooms -- bunkbeds in one (although the children opted to sleep in the loft), two twin beds in another and a double bed in the third room. The main level of the house has a sitting room (with a door you can close and escape!), a dining room and kitchen. While gorgeously appointed, you did not feel like it was scary to have the children in the home. We have traveled much of the world and stayed in many places. However, this is by far the most well appointed accommodation we have ever stayed in. Each paint colour, painting, knicknack was all meant to be. Stay here if you can!
