  • "As already discussed with the property owner, the water pressure is a major problem, that they are trying to address."

    The position of the small sink in the bathroom makes it impossible to shave, and also makes it difficult to clean your teeth. Although well built the cabin is small, and the lack of any wardrobe space is off putting. Steven and Jane were very welcoming.

    Thank you for your feedback. Property Owner

  • "Well presented, comfy cabin in a great location for exploring the Dorset coast."

    Some days during our stay were stormy, but there was still plenty to do. The cabin had everything that we needed to enjoy our stay. The only (minor) issue was the accessibility of the bathroom sink under the cabinet.

    Hi Tom. Thank you for your feedback and we appreciate your kind comments. We've been fully booked since we opened for the season so we are now able to address the issues with the sink and the water pressure. We're glad you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "This cabin was so comfy and clean, also had everything you need - fridge and microwave very handy."

    A 20 minute walk into town which was so prettt and lots of bars and shops etc. Slight issue but did not ruin our stay was the shower was not very powerful as could only get the right temperature on eco mode. Also the bathroom cabinet position made it difficult to clean your teeth or shave whilst holding your head over the sink, would suggest just a mirror to avoid making a mess around the sink area. Also sea view was quite a way .. but you could see it through the distance. I would still recommend.

    Hi Clare. Thank you for your feedback as we really welcome how we can improve the experience for our guests. We've noted your comments and will consider these for the future. Property Owner

About the location


  • Wareham 9.7 miles
  • Poole 20 miles

The small, family-friendly seaside resort of Swanage is situated at the eastern end of Dorset’s famous Jurassic Coast, on the celebrated Isle of Purbeck and is probably best known for its wonderful, gently shelving golden sands. The little town offers visitors plenty of shops, good pubs and restaurants, some of which specialise in locally caught seafood, and is also well known for its annual jazz festival, which takes place each July. The attractive, Victorian wooden pier offers a great place for a stroll or try fishing, and often used a departure point for divers, it’s a wonderful place to watch the world pass by. The historic Swanage Railway has its terminus in the town and regular nostalgic steam engine trips take tourists for a picturesque 6-mile journey, chugging through lovely countryside to stop just beyond the romantic ruin of Corfe Castle. Nearby Durlston Country Park offers a lovely day out with spectacular coastal walks, dolphin spotting and wildlife watching, together with comfortable viewing points and a well-stocked cafe for a treat after all the fresh air. Take the short drive to Studland, which has one of the finest beaches in the country, surrounded by heathland, together with the regular chain ferry, which crosses the mouth of Poole Harbour to Sandbanks. This truly is a delightful holiday destination at any time of the year.
