  • “We highly recommend Leap House a clean and comfortable home.”

    We found the beds comfy and the parking was fine for our estate car. Where the property is position is a few minutes walk from some lovely shops and restaurants and nice walks along the river. Wareham is also the most ideal place to explore other areas of Dorset we do plan to return. Thanks Becca

The property

Tucked away in one of the little back streets in the conservation area of the attractive Dorset waterside town of Wareham is this tastefully-furnished and very well-presented, semi-detached cottage.

This lovely cottage is just a short stroll from the quayside and all the amenities on offer in this pretty market town are ideal for a relaxing break.

Inside this delightful cottage there is a well-equipped kitchen, where you can try out your culinary skills, served up in the bright dining area of the sitting room.

There is also a woodburner in this room, a great place to snuggle up on a cooler evening watching your favourite film!

Upstairs there are three comfortable bedrooms, offering calming decor which will soothe you to a restful sleep, together with a family bathroom.

Outside you can sit on the enclosed and private raised patio and enjoy a coffee while you plan your day’s adventures.

On sunny days take a short stroll down to the quayside, a lovely place to watch the boats or take a boat trip further afield.

Alternatively, simply just relax and enjoy refreshments, and on summer evenings there are regular events taking place with bands and fireworks to entertain you.

Within easy reach you can explore the lovely unspoilt Arne peninsula, an RSPB Reserve, where wild deer freely roam.

Why not enjoy an historical experience at Corfe Castle, where cream teas abound, and you can take a nostalgic steam engine ride to the family-friendly seaside resort of Swanage, not to be missed?

Further afield, take a leisurely drive through the Purbeck Hills and marvel at the stunning Jurassic Coast, with Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door and Kimmeridge Bay all easily accessible.

This is a real gem of a holiday cottage, situated in one of Dorset’s finest historical towns.

About the location


Corfe Castle 5 miles; Poole 9 miles; Swanage 11 miles;

Wareham, affectionately known as the ‘Gateway to the Purbecks’ is an ancient Dorset waterside market town. Situated between the River Frome and quaintly named River Piddle, its charming riverside location makes the town a popular holiday destination. Dating back to Saxon times, the town was once surrounded by walls, and became an important port with boats bringing supplies up the River Frome from nearby Poole harbour. Today, the river provides a great playground, you can hire a boat from the attractive quayside and chug your way down the stream, take one of the regular organised boat trips, browse the colourful Saturday market or simply just enjoy an ice cream or a drink relaxing on the Quayside. Whilst seasonally there are also numerous popular events taking place beside the river. A short drive takes you to the Arne peninsula jutting out into Poole Harbour, a designated RSPB reserve, where you can stroll down to the water’s edge, taking in glimpses of the impressive bird population and often viewing some of the resident deer. The friendly seaside resort of Swanage is also easily accessible, where you can experience a traditional family-friendly day out on the beach, or take the coastal path and stop off for refreshment at Durlston Country Park. A real treat is to drive to nearby Corfe Castle and take the vintage steam railway to Swanage. Wareham offers visitors a super Dorset holiday destination at anytime of the year.
