Great bungalow

  • 4 of 5

Great bungalow, ideal for a family holiday. It is situated in a very quiet and peaceful part of Swanage only a short stroll away from the lovely beach. Three generations of our family were well catered for, comfortable beds, plenty of fluffy towels and a well equipped kitchen, also plenty of toys, games and puzzles for the little ones. Lots of communication with the owner who was more than helpful at all times. We had a great holiday, as Sonia said the sun always shines in Swanage! Thank you

Lovely Bungalow

  • 4 of 5

Our holiday at the Bungalow has been extremely comfortable. A good nights sleep in nice crisp linen. Beautiful white towels and tea towels. Lovely and clean a feeling of home from home. The kitchen is very well equipped. The owners are friendly and accommodating and have made our stay pleasureable. We will certainly recommend your Bungalow to our friends and family. Hope to return here again one day.

About Sonia Harris

I grew up in Swanage and spent many happy times at this house with my family. Now we as a family have many enjoyable times with my young son who is nearly 6. The garden is enclosed and safe for children to crawl, walk and play. We live in Poole and we really do love the Dorset area. We enjoy our time in Swanage, we take lots of walks and enjoy the beach, we feel very much at home here, we do hope our visitors will feel the same. Located in a peaceful residential area, only a short stroll to the local sandy beach, play areas, tennis courts, town centre or local pub. We have been very fortunate that our previous visitors have re-booked for 2016/2017 to stay in our lovely home.

Sonia Harris purchased this house in 1970
