Perfect roomy and well equipped cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was so well equipped and comfortable for our family of four. It was a fantastic base for exploring Purbeck and Studland. The village has a good post office shop a pub and Putlake farm. A short walk (approx 1 mile) from the coastal path at Dancing Ledge.

Perfect holiday flat

  • 4 of 5

Great little flat, although plenty of room for family with 3 teenagers. Very well furnished and equipped. Just over the road from the path up to the coastal path. Great for walks. Nice village, not too busy, good shop and 2-3 nice pubs with great food. Easy access to Swanage and surrounding area. We would definitely use again.

We were really surprised how big this apartment was, our daughter and son had their own rooms and the main bedroom was really spacious even with a cot. The owners have really thought about everything and its so well equipped with whatever you need. We stayed for two weeks and if you have children this is perfect. Its clean and tidy and the bathroom is a nice size, we didnt feel like we were on top of each other and although the kitchen is small it was perfect for hubby to do the holiday cooking (bliss). The location is perfect, Swanage is lovely only five mins away and Studlands has an amazing beach, there is so much to do and see. Corfe Castle, The Blue Pool, Lulworth Cove and lots more. We didnt have great weather but we had a lovely time, thankyou. We didnt want to go home and would definately recommend this property.

We stayed in this lovely flat for a week. It was extremely well equipped, spotless and met all of our needs, from our one year old to our fourteen year old. The village is quiet but the cottage is a minute's walk from the shop and pub and, in the other direction, a play park and field. The beds were extremely comfortable and the shower luxurious. Swanage is only a ten minute drive, but a bus runs there every half hour should you need it. I would recommend the flat highly.

Fantastic time. Cottage central to loads of activities. Nice and clean with good facilties. Good curry house and chip shop within close drive.

Pub just a stagger away. Locals were great, even when we brought kids in for a game of darts. Dancing Ledge a nice walk. A days fossil hunting within a hours drive away. Thoroughly recommend.
