  • "Don’t normally leave reviews but on the cottage was so perfect it deserves a review!"

    Cottage was well equipped, in excellent condition and everything worked perfectly. Convenient location for visits to Arne RSPB nature reserve, Lulworth and the steam train to Swanage. Lovely few days away. Although the listing says steep steps in the garden it is not clear that these are to the front of the property which makes the cottage unsuitable for people with reduced mobility.

  • "This house was perfect for our stay and felt completely at home, kitchen well equipped, couple of items may need renewing at some point but I would definitely recommend this house."

    Wool it’s self is a lovely place and we were central to all the areas we wanted to see. Definitely value for the money

  • "Very nice property with great views."

    Hygiene in Kitchen was very poor. Fridge not cleaned. Previous guests food in Freezer. Dirty pots & cutlery. Oven needs a good clean. Waste food left in the bin. The rest of the property was very clean.

  • "Highbank is a superior house."

    Situated in a great location. The bakery just down the street is good for a convenient breakfast before heading out. Though the steps were a bit much for my 89 yr old father in-law.

  • "This is a beautiful bungalow with everything you need , spotlessly clean."

    Great views across the countryside and very close to shops and pubs. Central for visiting the area. The one negative is there are 30+ steps up to the front door which can be a problem if you are elderly or unable to negotiate steps.

  • "The property was perfect for what we needed."

    A few days in Wool to attend my mothers funeral. Just two small points - it would be useful to have a cot available as we had to try locally to borrow a cot for our stay. The towels provided were a bit small (particularly the bath sheets) some better towels would be appreciated. Apart from that I would recommend the property to anyone and would certainly book it again.

  • "This cottage was absolutely perfect ."

    I wanted to stay within an easy distance to Swanage , Corfe Castle , Lulworth Cove and all the other beautiful areas around this part of Dorset and Wool lived up to all of this . The actual cottage was superb and was more than I could wish for . Incredible clean with every facility that you could need to make your stay 5 star . So thank you for such a marvellous experience.

This wonderful, dog-friendly abode benefits from a terrace garden with patio, furniture and barbecue, a spacious kitchen/diner with woodburning stove and three well-appointed bedrooms welcoming eight guests, perfect for families looking to explore the wealth of attractions in Dorset.

After a day of exploring the nearby coast, enter your new home-from-home to unwind on the plush sofas in the sitting room in front of the Smart TV.

Later, head to the fully-equipped kitchen/diner to rustle up a hearty meal that can be enjoyed at the dining table where the crackling woodburning stove creates a homely ambience.

In warmer months, step outside to fire up the barbecue and delight in an alfresco affair upon the patio furniture, or simply enjoy a glass of your favourite tipple while watching the sun set over Dorset’s countryside.

When the sky darkens, choose from three bedrooms to catch your rest in, there is a family room with king-size and single, a double with single and a ground-floor double bedroom all serviced by a shower room and a ground-floor bathroom.

Highbank lies paces away from the centre of Wool where you can ease your self-catered stay at the local store or treat your loved ones to a special meal at The Black Bear or The Ship Inn.

The River Frome separates the town from Monkey World Ape Rescue, one of Dorset’s most popular attractions, housing an array of rescued and endangered primates that the whole family will enjoy seeing.

Venture south, passing the impressive 17th century Lulworth Castle in Wareham, to the coast where you can explore the Jurassic coast at Man O’War beach next to the iconic Durdle Door with breath-taking views across the sea.

Follow the South West coastal path to find a myriad of attractions including Lulworth Cove, Fossil Forest, Flower’s Barrow and Durlston Castle.
