  • "Lovely 5-star Accommodation Newly converted, this beautiful accommodation really has the wow factor!"

    The very charming and helpful owners have created a modern and very tastefully decorated interior that was spotlessly clean, cosy and warm. It has a wonderfully comfortable super king-size bed in a very spacious bedroom. Great shower and lovely kitchen very well equipped including both washing machine and dishwasher (good recycling facilities). Garden View is situated in Harman’s Cross, two miles south of Corfe Castle, just off the A351 hence there was some road noise. This is a really good location in a particularly scenic part of Dorset with the Purbeck Way accessible from the doorstep. There are many excellent coastal walks nearby plus Corfe Castle, Swanage, RSPB Arne, the Swanage Steam Railway plus many more attractions for those wanting to explore the great outdoors. There’s also a good choice of local restaurants, cafes etc. We will return

    Hosts very welcoming should be proud of what they have achieved with the accommodation. Situated in a peaceful area, scenery amazing, accommodation has everything that you need for a enjoyable break, wow factor is the bedroom and the scenery from the window. Area very dog friendly. Fantastic relaxing time sad when had to leave.

  • "We have just returned from a wonderful week away and feel fortunate to of chosen Eventide as it has everything (and more) that you would require for a holiday home and with the added bonus of this new renovation, it really was the perfect location for touring or walking in the Purbeck region with Lulworth Cove & Durdle Door only 25 minutes away by car."

    The owners were very welcoming and really helpful in suggesting ideas that suited our needs, without being intrusive. A big thanks to Bob & Ann for that. Swanage isn’t too far away for a medium size supermarket with quite a few pubs dotted around locally with good outside eating areas
