  • "AS SKYES only seem to SEND automatic messages - here's my feedback/and message."

    I connected with you twice already and you have completely ignored me ! WE were so looking forward to Christmas 23 in Swanage ( However struck unfortunately down with COVID the day before and WE had to cancel our arrival/STAY) Although I can understand cancellation policy's etc ...what I don't understand is the lack of empathy, care or attention from SKYES. And to keep receiving automatic messages asking about our stay !

  • "The property is beautiful and we would definitely stay again- was a perfect location, lovely facilities and a great flat overall."

    The only things we would comment on are the broadband/ WiFi needs to be improved and the shower wasn’t so hot. This has been commented on before so definitely something that needs to be actioned- other than that- great great property!

  • "It's a super apartment with all high end facilities."

    My only issues were that I had to wait in for a plumber to come as the shower was flooding. The drain was completely blocked with gunk and hair. It took an hour just for the solution to go down the drain so I think this needs to be maintained. The bed was super comfy and lovely bedding. I do feel you need to change the fact that there's off street parking. There is ( for an hour! So you can't park and go out for the day. Car parks are at a distance and costly. Or free off street parking is about half a mile away. But a beautiful apartment.

  • "The flat was very comfortable and clean and well equipped in a very good position, the only thing that could be improved is the tv reception."

    The 55” inch beautiful tv in master bedroom did not work, the tv in twin room was also very poor reception, and the tv in the lounge was also very intermittent- a proper aerial would solve this problem. Other than that our stay was very enjoyable and would definitely recommend this property

  • "We spent a week in an apartment without a shower."

    The thermostat was mentioned in a previous review so was known about when we arrived. We rang everyday to try and get it rectified and have still had no resolution. You don't pay over £1000 for a weeks holiday and have to spend everyday bent over a bath with a jug washing your hair and having a wash. Dream cottages said they would try and sort out some compensation from the owner - nothing. Then Sykes said the same and added that they would try and get compensation for the terrible customer service we receieved and guess what - nothing. Disgusting way to treat returning customers. Will not book with them again and won't be recommending either.

It's got a chic décor, contemporary amenities and is just a stone's throw away from the sandy beach.

The open-plan living space is a great place for cooking, dining, and relaxing after a day filled with fun.

When you're ready to rest, there are two wonderfully presented bedrooms, one with a king-size and the other a twin, both with TVs, matching furniture, and vibrant colours.

Just paces away from the apartment, you will find a flurry of cafes, restaurants and bars to eat out at, as well as well-stocked convenience stores to stock up on the essentials and treats.

This picturesque town is home to Durlston Country Park and National Nature Reserve, ideal for a scenic picnic spots, Isle of Purbeck Golf Club, and Swanage Beach for when you want to get out in the sea-air.

Visit Bournemouth, a lively coastal town, known for its dramatic cliff-lined coastline, award-winning beaches, and exciting nightlife; here you can stroll along the pier and sample a great selection of eateries.

The coastal town of Poole is also worth a trip, with its National Trust - Brownsea Island and Hamworthy Park nearby, there are plenty of opportunities to explore the natural beauty of the area.

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.
