Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, close to local amenities and beach and the beautiful Jurassic coast.

"Ding Dong" is a lovely cosy cottage with 3 bedrooms. It is great for winter as well as for summer as it has a wood burning stove, with some logs provided to get you going! (October to March only). It is a Grade II listed building, full of character with lovely beams (and low ceilings, mind your head!) and all the amenities you need. The staircases are steep and narrow as might be expected in a 200 year old cottage like this one; bear in mind this may not be suitable for those with mobility problems. We have a TV, DVD player and selection of DVDs, toys, games and books as well as a washing machine, microwave, fridge freezer, coffee maker and double oven. We have wifi and BT TV including BT sport.

There is a separate dining room and the bathroom is downstairs at the end of the kitchen; it has a good powerful shower. Upstairs you have a good sized double room, a cosy twin room at the top of the cottage and a single room next to the main bedroom. The rooms do interconnect, you go up to the first floor to the double room, which leads to the single room, and stairs then go from the double up to the twin at the top. There is a safety gate installed at the top of the stairs. There is also a travel cot provided on request as well as a high chair.

The cottage benefits from its own secluded garden, perfect for kids and dogs, with a lovely stone barbecue and garden table and chairs (only put out in the spring and summer). We also have double glazing keeping the noise out and the heat in! All linens and towels are provided. The cottage does not have its own parking space but parking is available on the other side of the road and a little further up the road. Check-in any time after 4pm, check-out by 10am. Your dog is welcome, but please mention it on the booking request; there is a small pet charge of £15 to cover extra cleaning charges.

The cottage is a stone's throw from a friendly local pub and there is an Indian restaurant at the end of the street as well as a fish'n'chip shop just round the corner. The local 'open all hours' convenience store and post office is a two minute walk away and it stocks pretty much everything you could ever need! The cottage is a great base for exploring Swanage, only a 15 minute walk or a short drive to the beach and all of the attractions that Swanage has to offer. A short drive from Swanage is Corfe Castle as well as the beautiful Purbecks, an area of outstanding natural beauty. Durlston Park is the other side of Swanage and the coastal path is beautiful.

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property. Full of character, well maintained and decorated throughout. Log burner easy to use and a lovely feature. Excellent quality bedding and comfy beds and sofa. Really quiet road, parking outside. Nice walk into town. We had a wonderful home from home experience. Highly recommended.

Charming cottage in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

A lovely cottage in a quiet area in a great location. As a family with two children, this property ticked loads of boxes! Great set up - the rooms are warm and cosy and the kitchen and communal areas were well equipped.

We walked into town, enjoyed the cafes and pubs as well as the stunning walks this area has to offer. We can’t wait for our next visit!

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

Very pretty and comfortable cottage. The kitchen was well appointed with everything we needed. We easily found a parking space. The walk into town was about 20 minutes.

Perfect and charming

  • 5 of 5

Lovely well presented cottage which is deceptively spacious.

Situated just on the outskirts of Swanage but only a brisk walk to the town.

Extremely well equipped and comfortable with all mod cons and immaculately clean.

A well stocked small supermarket is just down the road or a full size Co-op in town caters for all your needs.

A lovely Indian restaurant and a good fish and chip shop are just at the end of the road too.

We would definitely recommend it to anyone and will look at booking again when we visit Swanage in the future.

A very welcoming cottage with everything we needed

  • 4 of 5

A well equipped cottage. It worked well for us as a group of 5 adults and 1 toddler as we knew each other very well. Anyone with mobility problems could not use the stairs and those in the double bedroom needed not to mind others walking through their room on the way to the bathroom in the night. All bedding and furnishings perfect and thought given for child provision with good high chair,toys and stairgate and door to upper floors. Liked the position and parking was possible. We loved walking back from the steam railway as we were able to get off at the station before Swanage.
