“Perfect base to explore the lovely Purbeck countryside”

person found this review helpful

We have stayed at this lovely house a couple of times with groups of friends. The house is well decorated and spacious. The modern kitchen/diner has recently been re done and offers an ideal social space for large groups (8-10) to eat together. The number of bathrooms to bedrooms is excellent and the rooms are all large and light. Outside there is a lovely sunny courtyard, idea to enjoy a pre dinner drink. The beach is just a few minutes walk away down some steps. From the house is it easy to walk up the cliff tops for amazing views of the solent. Other great walks along the SW Coast path are very easily accessible from this ideal location. Check out the pasties at the pub at Worth Matravers...

“A Great place for a family holiday”
Reviewed 10 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

The White House was ideal for our requirements. This was an early Summer break for the whole family, grandparents, parents and grandchildren. The facilities in the house were fine with a pleasant airy kitchen/diner meaning the whole family were able to eat together. The lounge was well equipped (TV etc.) and bedrooms were spacious. The location was perfect – literally 5 minutes walk from the sandy beach, and with three grandchildren under 3 exactly what was required - a safe beach with cafe and other facilities available. Swanage’s quaint town centre was another 15 minutes or so stroll along the prom. Excursions were possible with Farmer Palmer’s Farm Park extremely popular with the little ones (the adults learnt something as well) and a history lesson for all at Corfe Castle after a delightful ride on a steam train. We would have no hesitation of returning to The White House or recommending it to friends and others looking for a family holiday.

“A brilliant home from home ... perfect for 3 generations.. superbly equipped.”
Reviewed 1 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We have been going to Swanage for years and stayed in many properties but this has to be the best! The location is perfect for the beach and town... a walk into town takes about 10 mins to the centre and the beach 2 mins. The house has all the facilities needed for 6 adults and 2 small children. We particularly liked the large spacious hall which was perfect for the pram and numerous beach items. The kitchen was fully equipped and had enough equipment for double the people staying. The beds were very comfortable and having a bathroom per couple was just brilliant. All the electrical goods worked and we used the washing machine and tumble dryer which were very effective. Due to the nature of out English weather it was necessary to use the heating ... in May!.. which was also effective. The outside space is perfect for BBQ's and there was one in the shed for us to use... plus fuel. The wind break was used daily too. Overall a perfect place to stay!
