The property offers generously sized flexible accommodation for all the family, benefiting a ground floor  superking bedroom overlooking the pretty garden. For your convenience there is an adjacent bathroom with full suite  including a Jacuzzi bath and shower. This combination is ideal for those that may find stairs a challenge.

From the kitchen you can walk through to the dining area which has a stunning  brass-topped table and  comfortable  chairs to seat 8 for formal dining. You may then like to  retire to the snug for a quiet game of scrabble of an evening. This part of the cottage dates back  to 1750 and is believed to have once, among other things, been  a wheelwright workshop and  the village butcher shop. Langton  Matravers, famous for its Purbeck stone mining of limestone and marble, is steeped in history and a trip to the local museum is a must during your stay  

On the ground floor there is a further living room, complete with large screen smart TV including  a sky-Q package. This  delightful ?room also enjoys a log burning stove, a perfect addition for those crisp winter's evenings. Why not snuggle up with a movie in front of the roaring fire? 

Via a relatively steep staircase, you will find the elegant master suite, complete with a fabulous  superking bed and an  ensuite shower room which is accessed via 3 steps. There is also a twin room on this floor; the perfect den for the younger members of your party. A  further 2  steps rise to a shower room with double enclosure. Finally, and via another  steps, you will find?a king size room overlooking the sunny garden, church yard and Purbeck hills beyond.   

This fabulous holiday home is well placed within the heart of Purbeck for the keen walkers/cyclists among you.  The cottage is conveniently located for the  South West  coastal path from  where you can walk to the seaside town of Swanage, village of Studland and beyond.  A couple of miles in the other direction walk to Corfe Castle or Worth  Matravers - a stop off at The Square & Compass for a well-earned pasty and pint is a must! This pub is world renowned and you will see just why when you arrive!   

For family groups,  Putlake adventure farm is within walking distance of your cottage and will also keep you stocked with wood should you require it for the log burner! By car, the golden sands of Swanage can be reached in a matter of minutes, along with a plethora of shops, supermarkets, eateries, bars and more. There is even a mini seafront adventure park, not forgetting the traditional Punch & Judy shows throughout the summer months.  The National Trust's fabulous sandy beach at Studland is 15 minutes in the car.    You really will be spoilt for choice with so much to see and do, a  two week stay may well be needed!   

There is ample parking to be found immediately outside the cottage on the road or just opposite. There is also a village store for those  last minute essential supplies when you arrive, and the traditional Kings Arms pub just across the road if you don't fancy cooking  

This cottage is a perfect choice for those seeking an outdoor adventure holiday or those that want to hibernate in comfortable surrounding for a week with loved ones. Whatever the weather,  Seacombe guarantees you a warm and welcoming environment for all.

New Cottage Dec 2018

We had a wonderfully week in this beautiful cottage. Apart from the cottage being tastefully decorated and extremely well equipped - we were treated to a fully decorated Christmas tree in the living room, pretty fairy lights inside and in the front garden; a particularly lovely welcome when you arrive in the dark and rain. There was also a hamper of Christmas goodies, so we felt well and truly spoilt.

On Christmas Day we had clear blue skies and the sun was shining so decided to postpone lunch in favour of a walk to Dancing Ledge. Truly magical!

We very much hoping to return to this unspoiled area of Dorset to explore more of the walking and attractions it has to offer.

Great dog friendly pub and small village shop over the road from the cottage.

Thank you very much to the owners for creating such a lovely cottage that felt like home.
JMB 13/01/2020

We have all had the best time celebrating Christmas and a boxing
day birthday.  Beautiful cottage with equally beautiful
surroundings.  Recommend the greyhound pub in Corfe, great
food and drink & dog friendly.  Excellent walk on the
Priests' Way and towards Dancing Ledge.  Thank you. Merry
Christmas.


Buswell & Saunders families + dogs 28/12/2019

Our second visit and the cottage is still as wonderful.  We
had an early Christmas celebration with our wonderful family. 
Fabulous time and despite the cold weather our son-in-law still
bbq'd as gorgeous ham and turkey legs.  Had a great eveing on
the Saturday with games and much dancing. Cooked breakfast on the
Sunday via the bbq again.  Oven is a bit tricky - seems to
always stay on 180c.  Such a comfortable place.  Could be
back again sometime.


Roger & Dee + Captain 02/12/2019

Wonderful stay, such a lovely cottage, and we enjoyed great
weather for November.  A super walk to Swanage from the
village.


The Northovers 18/11/2019

What a beautiful house.  Perfect for our two parties to
enjoy some time together and for the children to have space to
play.   Sadly we didn't quite have the weather to make
use of the garden but maybe we'll be back in the summer to do
so.  Great location for lots of trips and walks, and it's
clear that the owners love  and take pride in the house - a
real treat for a holiday cottage.  Thank you.


The Smiths and Daltons 02/11/2019
First class holiday cottage fitted out to a very high standard.Our second visit this year and booked for two weeks next year.
C and M Bower 14/09/2019

What a find, an amazing house with everything you need to make a
special holiday.  Decor, furniture, bedding all fab especially
the really comfy beds, we've all slept so well.  Loved the pub
just across the road, very quirky, also the village shop with all
we needed & so friendly.  Also the handy bus stop with
local services to Swanage and local places, save using the
cars.  Loved the folk festival in Swanage when we arrived; it
was a real eye-opener!  We enjoyed Brownsea Island, Portland
Bill, Chesil Beach and walks to Dancing Ledge.  A must is the
Square and Compass in worth Matravers, a very old old pub with such
views and even a dog that often sits on the roof and makes you
think you've had one too many.  We've had an amazing week and
have loved it all and will return in the future.


Jill & Islwyn, Nerys & Islwyn, Jill & Poppy 14/09/2019

Our second visit this year.  We have had a wonderful week
at the cottage and our beach hut in Swanage.  The weather has
been very kind to us.  We have booked next year in June for
two weeks!


Margaret and Cliff 07/09/2019

Another lovely week at the cottage, home from home feel. 
We have enjoyed a beach hut on Swanage sea front, a day trip to
Father Palmer's farm and a trip on a train too.  Loads of fun
had, looking forwards to two weeks here in June.


Matthew, Caraline & Elinor 07/09/2019

We have really enjoyed our family holiday here.  Lovely
comfortable cottage. Weather has been fabulous so we have enjoyed a
bbq in the garden and cooked seafood from Swanage. Eaten and would
recommend the Shell Bay Bistro and Chilled Red.  Enjoyed many
pints across the road at the Kings Arms. Walk to Dancing Ledge and
over to Worth Matravers - Square and Compass a great pub, wonderful
views, pie & pint with a chicken and Charlie the dog on the
roof.  For those that follow, enjoy your time here.



P.S. Head to Studland for the best beaches.


The Manuels and the Barr families 31/08/2019

'Best holiday ever' say Sam and Amilie (Age 6) Perfect holiday
home, but so much more than a home as it's just beautiful.
Comfortable and thoughtfully decorated, spotlessly clean and
perfectly situated. Thank you for a fab stay. Really enjoyed out
excursions to Corfe, Lulworth, the fantastic beach at Studland,
food at The Pig and the amenities of Swanage. All great places when
the sun is shining. 


Colin, Gemma, Sam and Amilie 24/08/2019
Had the most wonderful time in this beautifully appointed house. The whole house is just so comfy and welcoming with a number of lovely (and helpful) touches. Bedrooms are quiet and large, we found the beds to be just right. Langton Matravers is a pleasant village in a good location, local store had good basics and the playground minutes from the house got the thumbs up from a four year old. Will definitely be returning in the future.
Ben 20/08/2019

Wonderful house, so comfy and everything has been thought of. We
felt very lucky with the weather and BBQs and sea dips were
possible. Hope to return to this house one day soon and explore
some more. Our 4 year old's favourite bit was the Dorset heavy
horse farm and Studland beach. Thank you. 


The Gutchers 10/08/2019

Lovely house in beautiful surroundings! We've had glorious
weather and eaten breakfast and dinners out on the patio. The men
in our party enjoyed the pub across the road and we all had a very
tasty Sunday lunch there too. Swanage was great, as usual, and
carnival week this week was fun. Everywhere was dog friendly too.
Will be back. 


Pauline, Clive, Jeanie, John, Steve, Donna, Nell and Gus the Dachs. 03/08/2019
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Seacombe. There was plenty of room for 6 adults a toddler and a dog. Lovely big towels and two very large bedrooms. We had not stayed in the area before so it is always good to explore somewhere new. I would thoroughly recommend the steam train to Corfe Castle and the model village there is a must for children. Bliss restaurant in Swanage was excellent and not too far to go.
Sue Smith 26/07/2019

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Perfect for 3 plus a toddler and
dog. Garden nice and safe and we managed to eat outside five times.
Thanks for everything. 


The Smiths and Shadow 20/07/2019
Had a wonderful week at Seacombe. The house was all we could of wished for. In a lovely peaceful location but only a few minutes by car into Swanage. We visited some lovely places along the Dorset coast and would definitely return when we decide to come back that way.
Tracey 13/07/2019

Thank you so much for providing such a beautiful home for us to
stay. The house is lovely, had everything we needed and is in a
great location. We relaxed totally and the weather was
wonderful. 


Fiona, Robert, Benjamin, Martin, Linda and Adrian 13/07/2019

Absolutely wonderful place to stay. The cottage is more than
we'd ever hoped-for. 3 generations staying here but not once felt
overcrowded. Tastefully decorated in every room and well equipped.
We had fab weather amd we enjoyed a bbq in the evening. Visited
Poole, Bournemouth, Corfe Castle, Portland, Weymouth and Swanage.
Would definitely book to stay again. P.S. Thank you for the Dorset
Apple Cake. 


Martin, Tracy, Barry, Jean and Grace. 06/07/2019

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Cottage very pleasent and garden
area private with ample dinning space. If we returned we would like
to order the same weather please. 


Kris, Kathryn and Maureen. 29/06/2019

Seacombe is a beautiful cottage which is very spacious, well
equipped and presented to a high standard. It feels like a proper
family home and catered for three generations comfortably. The
children enjoyed playing in the garden and we managed to have a BBQ
one sunny evening. The location is ideal for the beach at Swanage
and Studland. The steam train to Corfe Castle was enjoyed by all.
We also had a pleasant day visiting Kingston Lacy, Hardy's Cottage
and Max Gate as well as T.E. Lawrence's little home at Cloud Hill.
Durston Castle is well worth a visit with stunning views even in
the rain. Thank you so much Theresa and Clive for allowing us to
spend a week in your gorgeous home. We will definitely come back
again. 


Patricia, Keith and Family 22/06/2019

Lovely well equipped house. We were glad of the facilities as
the weather was not kind to us. Plenty of space for everyone to
have their own space. Had our 5 month old grandson with us and
found new baby equipment very good. Thanks for the house. P.s. Very
clean and welcoming. 


Belinda, Laurance, Katherine, Ollie Charlotte, Sam & Theo 15/06/2019
The cottage has everything and more that you could need for a wonderful holiday. Every room is fitted out to a very high standard to give a very comfortable holiday location.
Clifford Bower 13/06/2019

What a stunning cottage!!! Lovely areas to relax and spacious
bedrooms with plenty of storage. Kitchen was well equipped, lounge
lovely and cosy. We had a beach hut on Swanage sea front like we do
every year and went for some lovely drives around Worth, Kingston
and Corfe. As visitors to Swanage yearly we can definately
recommend this cottage as a place to stay. The garden is lovely and
the area pretty quiet which is nice. As a family - 3 generations (5
of us) we will definately book to stay here again. 


Margaret, Cliff, Matthew, Caraline & Elinor 08/06/2019
Seacombe has everything you need for an enjoyable self catering cottage. Comfortable, attractive interior,high standard quaulity furnishings.Lovely country views in a pretty village with pub and a village shop.Good location near the coast and lovely country walks.
The only negative is it can be difficult to get a parking space outside the cottage.
Kim Green 07/06/2019

We had a lovely holiday at Seacombe. Beautiful cottage with
every comfort including the dogs. We visited lots of interesting
and fun places and four of us (3 generations) did a stone engraving
2 hour course at Burngate stone carving centre which we can
recommend. 


Freda, Ken, Kim, Paul, Matt, Daisy and Ki-ki the dog. 01/06/2019
The cottage was ideal for a family gathering. It was really well equipped and the beds were so comfortable. The kitchen had everything you could possibly want. The lounge was a bit smaller than we thought from the photos but as we were in the garden or kitchen for most of the time it did not other us. It is in an ideal position with the pub and shop just over the road. We shall certainly return at some point.
Roger Turner 11/05/2019

Seacombe is a beautiful cottage - so well appointed with
everything we could wish for. We came up from Cornwall to celebrate
Rogers 75th and it was a wonderful place to meet up with our
daughter from Somerset and our two sons who live in Hampshire and
their families and the dog Captain came too. We only wish we could
stay longer - perhaps next time. Clive and Theresa - Your lovely
cottage is warm and welcoming and the decor is just what we like!
And thank you as well to Dorset Cottage Holidays who made the
booking so easy to manage. We will make sure to come back!!


Dee and Roger 05/05/2019

We had a lovely time. We walked to Corfe Castle along the coast
and up and down a few hills. Weather was good and by the end of the
week in the 20s. The cottage is a great base. We appreciated the
well-equipped kitchen.


Clarke Family 20/04/2019

Beautiful cottage which is very well maintained. Wish we could
live here! We will recommend it to many of our friends. We booked
through Dorset Cottage Holidays who kept us well informed and
checked to make sure we were ok. Nanny, Grandad, Mum, Dad, Auntie
Sonia, Uncle Neil, Joe, Evie, Max, Anna, Rosie and Alex.
Celebrating Grandads 70th!


Handford Family 13/04/2019
An amazing cottage in a great location, very well equipped cottage with a proper local pub over the road, we will definitely be booking this again for a future holiday.
Phil Self 09/04/2019

Had a wonderful four days at Seacombe. Weather has been great.
Lovely part of the country to visit. So many walks and places to
see. Will definitely be back.


Phil, Lucy, Anne, Nick, Grandmas & Maymay the dog. 29/03/2019

Fabulous stay in a gorgeous cottage. Wonderful day at Lulworth
Cove and Durdle Door. Fab pub across the road with a great
atmosphere and lovely beach walks with Bailey the dog. The cottage
had everything we needed and more. PS. Cracking CD collection!


Paula, Ewan, Georgie, George & Lilly. 24/03/2019
We spent three nights at Seacombe with friends. We had a great time and it was exactly what we were looking for. A cottage finished to a high standard where we could relax and unwind. The cottage is perfect for a family or small group of friends. The communal spaces are open plan and create a cosy yet spacious feel in a very relaxing setting. We would certainly consider returning.
EW 25/02/2019

We have had the most relaxing stay at Seacombe over the last few
days. It ticks all the boxes and has been finished to such a high
standard and an idyllic location. We will most definitely be
back.


Elliot, Catherine, James, Beth & Bridget. 19/02/2019

The most perfect country cottage. Lovely walk to Corfe. Roaring
log fire, stunning coastal walk, Idyllic! Can't wait to visit
again.


Suzie, John & Gel 04/01/2019

What a lovely cosy cottage. A perfect stay away with our
friends. Felt lik a home-from-home. 10/10


Salv & Deanna 03/01/2019

What a wonderful stay in beautiful Seacombe. Long walks, pub
across the road, logburner, gorgeous interiors. We can't wait to
come back.

so.  Great location for lots of trips and walks, and it's
clear that the owners love  and take pride in the house - a
real treat for a holiday cottage.  Thank you.

First class holiday cottage fitted out to a very high standard.Our second visit this year and booked for two weeks next year.
C and M Bower 14/09/2019

What a find, an amazing house with everything you need to make a
special holiday.  Decor, furniture, bedding all fab especially
the really comfy beds, we've all slept so well.  Loved the pub
just across the road, very quirky, also the village shop with all
we needed & so friendly.  Also the handy bus stop with
local services to Swanage and local places, save using the
cars.  Loved the folk festival in Swanage when we arrived; it
was a real eye-opener!  We enjoyed Brownsea Island, Portland
Bill, Chesil Beach and walks to Dancing Ledge.  A must is the
Square and Compass in worth Matravers, a very old old pub with such
views and even a dog that often sits on the roof and makes you
think you've had one too many.  We've had an amazing week and
have loved it all and will return in the future.

Our second visit this year.  We have had a wonderful week
at the cottage and our beach hut in Swanage.  The weather has
been very kind to us.  We have booked next year in June for
two weeks!


Margaret and Cliff 07/09/2019

Another lovely week at the cottage, home from home feel. 
We have enjoyed a beach hut on Swanage sea front, a day trip to
Father Palmer's farm and a trip on a train too.  Loads of fun
had, looking forwards to two weeks here in June.


Matthew, Caraline & Elinor 07/09/2019

We have really enjoyed our family holiday here.  Lovely
comfortable cottage. Weather has been fabulous so we have enjoyed a
bbq in the garden and cooked seafood from Swanage. Eaten and would
recommend the Shell Bay Bistro and Chilled Red.  Enjoyed many
pints across the road at the Kings Arms. Walk to Dancing Ledge and
over to Worth Matravers - Square and Compass a great pub, wonderful
views, pie & pint with a chicken and Charlie the dog on the
roof.  For those that follow, enjoy your time here.



P.S. Head to Studland for the best beaches.


The Manuels and the Barr families 31/08/2019

'Best holiday ever' say Sam and Amilie (Age 6) Perfect holiday
home, but so much more than a home as it's just beautiful.
Comfortable and thoughtfully decorated, spotlessly clean and
perfectly situated. Thank you for a fab stay. Really enjoyed out
excursions to Corfe, Lulworth, the fantastic beach at Studland,
food at The Pig and the amenities of Swanage. All great places when
the sun is shining. 


Colin, Gemma, Sam and Amilie 24/08/2019
Had the most wonderful time in this beautifully appointed house. The whole house is just so comfy and welcoming with a number of lovely (and helpful) touches. Bedrooms are quiet and large, we found the beds to be just right. Langton Matravers is a pleasant village in a good location, local store had good basics and the playground minutes from the house got the thumbs up from a four year old. Will definitely be returning in the future.
Ben 20/08/2019

Wonderful house, so comfy and everything has been thought of. We
felt very lucky with the weather and BBQs and sea dips were
possible. Hope to return to this house one day soon and explore
some more. Our 4 year old's favourite bit was the Dorset heavy
horse farm and Studland beach. Thank you. 


The Gutchers 10/08/2019

Lovely house in beautiful surroundings! We've had glorious
weather and eaten breakfast and dinners out on the patio. The men
in our party enjoyed the pub across the road and we all had a very
tasty Sunday lunch there too. Swanage was great, as usual, and
carnival week this week was fun. Everywhere was dog friendly too.
Will be back. 


Pauline, Clive, Jeanie, John, Steve, Donna, Nell and Gus the Dachs. 03/08/2019
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Seacombe. There was plenty of room for 6 adults a toddler and a dog. Lovely big towels and two very large bedrooms. We had not stayed in the area before so it is always good to explore somewhere new. I would thoroughly recommend the steam train to Corfe Castle and the model village there is a must for children. Bliss restaurant in Swanage was excellent and not too far to go.
Sue Smith 26/07/2019

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Perfect for 3 plus a toddler and
dog. Garden nice and safe and we managed to eat outside five times.
Thanks for everything. 


The Smiths and Shadow 20/07/2019
Had a wonderful week at Seacombe. The house was all we could of wished for. In a lovely peaceful location but only a few minutes by car into Swanage. We visited some lovely places along the Dorset coast and would definitely return when we decide to come back that way.
Tracey 13/07/2019

Thank you so much for providing such a beautiful home for us to
stay. The house is lovely, had everything we needed and is in a
great location. We relaxed totally and the weather was
wonderful. 


Fiona, Robert, Benjamin, Martin, Linda and Adrian 13/07/2019

Absolutely wonderful place to stay. The cottage is more than
we'd ever hoped-for. 3 generations staying here but not once felt
overcrowded. Tastefully decorated in every room and well equipped.
We had fab weather amd we enjoyed a bbq in the evening. Visited
Poole, Bournemouth, Corfe Castle, Portland, Weymouth and Swanage.
Would definitely book to stay again. P.S. Thank you for the Dorset
Apple Cake. 


Martin, Tracy, Barry, Jean and Grace. 06/07/2019

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Cottage very pleasent and garden
area private with ample dinning space. If we returned we would like
to order the same weather please. 


Kris, Kathryn and Maureen. 29/06/2019

Seacombe is a beautiful cottage which is very spacious, well
equipped and presented to a high standard. It feels like a proper
family home and catered for three generations comfortably. The
children enjoyed playing in the garden and we managed to have a BBQ
one sunny evening. The location is ideal for the beach at Swanage
and Studland. The steam train to Corfe Castle was enjoyed by all.
We also had a pleasant day visiting Kingston Lacy, Hardy's Cottage
and Max Gate as well as T.E. Lawrence's little home at Cloud Hill.
Durston Castle is well worth a visit with stunning views even in
the rain. Thank you so much Theresa and Clive for allowing us to
spend a week in your gorgeous home. We will definitely come back
again. 


Patricia, Keith and Family 22/06/2019

Lovely well equipped house. We were glad of the facilities as
the weather was not kind to us. Plenty of space for everyone to
have their own space. Had our 5 month old grandson with us and
found new baby equipment very good. Thanks for the house. P.s. Very
clean and welcoming. 


Belinda, Laurance, Katherine, Ollie Charlotte, Sam & Theo 15/06/2019
The cottage has everything and more that you could need for a wonderful holiday. Every room is fitted out to a very high standard to give a very comfortable holiday location.
Clifford Bower 13/06/2019

What a stunning cottage!!! Lovely areas to relax and spacious
bedrooms with plenty of storage. Kitchen was well equipped, lounge
lovely and cosy. We had a beach hut on Swanage sea front like we do
every year and went for some lovely drives around Worth, Kingston
and Corfe. As visitors to Swanage yearly we can definately
recommend this cottage as a place to stay. The garden is lovely and
the area pretty quiet which is nice. As a family - 3 generations (5
of us) we will definately book to stay here again. 


Margaret, Cliff, Matthew, Caraline & Elinor 08/06/2019
Seacombe has everything you need for an enjoyable self catering cottage. Comfortable, attractive interior,high standard quaulity furnishings.Lovely country views in a pretty village with pub and a village shop.Good location near the coast and lovely country walks.
The only negative is it can be difficult to get a parking space outside the cottage.
Kim Green 07/06/2019

We had a lovely holiday at Seacombe. Beautiful cottage with
every comfort including the dogs. We visited lots of interesting
and fun places and four of us (3 generations) did a stone engraving
2 hour course at Burngate stone carving centre which we can
recommend. 


Freda, Ken, Kim, Paul, Matt, Daisy and Ki-ki the dog. 01/06/2019
The cottage was ideal for a family gathering. It was really well equipped and the beds were so comfortable. The kitchen had everything you could possibly want. The lounge was a bit smaller than we thought from the photos but as we were in the garden or kitchen for most of the time it did not other us. It is in an ideal position with the pub and shop just over the road. We shall certainly return at some point.
Roger Turner 11/05/2019

Seacombe is a beautiful cottage - so well appointed with
everything we could wish for. We came up from Cornwall to celebrate
Rogers 75th and it was a wonderful place to meet up with our
daughter from Somerset and our two sons who live in Hampshire and
their families and the dog Captain came too. We only wish we could
stay longer - perhaps next time. Clive and Theresa - Your lovely
cottage is warm and welcoming and the decor is just what we like!
And thank you as well to Dorset Cottage Holidays who made the
booking so easy to manage. We will make sure to come back!!


Dee and Roger 05/05/2019

We had a lovely time. We walked to Corfe Castle along the coast
and up and down a few hills. Weather was good and by the end of the
week in the 20s. The cottage is a great base. We appreciated the
well-equipped kitchen.


Clarke Family 20/04/2019

Beautiful cottage which is very well maintained. Wish we could
live here! We will recommend it to many of our friends. We booked
through Dorset Cottage Holidays who kept us well informed and
checked to make sure we were ok. Nanny, Grandad, Mum, Dad, Auntie
Sonia, Uncle Neil, Joe, Evie, Max, Anna, Rosie and Alex.
Celebrating Grandads 70th!


Handford Family 13/04/2019
An amazing cottage in a great location, very well equipped cottage with a proper local pub over the road, we will definitely be booking this again for a future holiday.
Phil Self 09/04/2019

Had a wonderful four days at Seacombe. Weather has been great.
Lovely part of the country to visit. So many walks and places to
see. Will definitely be back.


Phil, Lucy, Anne, Nick, Grandmas & Maymay the dog. 29/03/2019

Fabulous stay in a gorgeous cottage. Wonderful day at Lulworth
Cove and Durdle Door. Fab pub across the road with a great
atmosphere and lovely beach walks with Bailey the dog. The cottage
had everything we needed and more. PS. Cracking CD collection!


Paula, Ewan, Georgie, George & Lilly. 24/03/2019
We spent three nights at Seacombe with friends. We had a great time and it was exactly what we were looking for. A cottage finished to a high standard where we could relax and unwind. The cottage is perfect for a family or small group of friends. The communal spaces are open plan and create a cosy yet spacious feel in a very relaxing setting. We would certainly consider returning.
EW 25/02/2019

We have had the most relaxing stay at Seacombe over the last few
days. It ticks all the boxes and has been finished to such a high
standard and an idyllic location. We will most definitely be
back.


Elliot, Catherine, James, Beth & Bridget. 19/02/2019

The most perfect country cottage. Lovely walk to Corfe. Roaring
log fire, stunning coastal walk, Idyllic! Can't wait to visit
again.


Suzie, John & Gel 04/01/2019

What a lovely cosy cottage. A perfect stay away with our
friends. Felt lik a home-from-home. 10/10
