“Lovely views and comfy flat”
Reviewed 3 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Great location. Well appointed and equipped. Great to have 2 parking spaces and 3 toilets.
Near to pier and shops but lovely and quiet spot. Ideal for exploring the cliff top walk.
Town house stairs for us were no problem, but might be a problem for the elderly or young children.

This is the second time we have stayed here. The house is lovely, well maintained and clean. Spacious rooms and comfortable beds, with 2 bathrooms and an extra toilet on first floor. Good size kitchen with plenty of crockery and utensils. There is a stunning view of the Old Harry rocks from the lounge. Five minute walk into Swanage town. We definitely recommend staying here.

“5 Stars for property, location and Swanage”

This was our first time self catering and we were not disappointed. The property is in a great location (5 minute walk to the town center) and located on the coast path.

It was clean and spacious and had superb views from the sun terrace. It was well equipped and had really comfortable Sofa’s and beds to crash into. Great as well that both bed rooms were en suite and while there were only 3 of us it could have easily have easily coped with 6.

Loved Swanage. The town had a great feel and it was nice to see all the families sat on the quay side trying their hand at crabbing.

Would recommend the walk from The Haven to Studland (via Old Harry Rocks). We did a slow walk (3hrs) with a 4 year old and ended up at the wonderful Bankes Arms where we were met with great views, good food and even better real ale (not the 4 year old!)
