Anne Fox-Smythe 11/10/2019
Really loved staying in this flat! It had everything you needed and was very thoughtfully presented. The location is brilliant, no trouble with parking. Loved the balcony and the constant view of the sea, peaceful and tranquil!
Hazel 21/08/2019
The Balcony Apartment is a complete joy to stay in. Everything you can think of is provided in this beautiful
flat. We found it to be clean and so very comfortable, we could not ask for anything more. The "Welcome Pack" so very thoughtful and very much appreciated. Thank you.
We had occasion to for Dorset Cottage Holidays and each time were treated with the utmost care and consideration. Will certainly book this apartment again.
Thank you to Dorset Cottage Holidays for all the TLC.
Patricia Anne Wilson. 16/05/2019
Arrived on very cold day and apartment very cold but heated up well.. Very thoughtful welcome pack, cakes etc.had an excellent week. One small issue, one of other tenants repeatedly left front door on latch thereby allowing free access to hall and stairs, not as secure as we would have liked
Helen Hambleton 21/03/2019
Wonderful, clean and bright apartment.
Ideally situated for Swanage town and surrounding areas, Beautiful views across the bay and countryside.
Apartment fitted out for all your needs to make your stay enjoyable. The welcome pack of bread, butter, milk and cake was so thoughtful.

Fantastic flat and holiday. My third time staying in this flat. The welcome pack was very much appreciated as we had travelled from Doncaster by train. The view from the flat was great as usual. Thank you.
Barbara Jones 13/07/2018
This was out third visit. The apartment is exceptional and the views are outstanding. There are so many different things to do beach park sailing monkey world many more outings not to far away. You could not ask for more. Shops galore and markets. I loved it there and will be back. I recommend this apartment to all my friends and anyone reading this opinion.
Ann flanagan 13/07/2018
We had such a lovely holiday here. Everything you'd be likely to need is here plus more. We had to use heating one night and it was very efficient, therefore would be tempted to take an Autumn Winter break here as well. Aside from that we had lovely weather and didn't use the car once. To sit on the balcony watching the sea and the sound of the waves was bliss. Perfect holiday and appreciated the call from shortages on the Monday to check all was well. Great welcome pack also. Wish we'd booked longer.
A Butler 07/06/2018
This is the third time that we have stayed in this apartment and we have had three very happy holidays here. The apartment is spacious, really clean and well equipped. The location is fabulous because it is next to the sea but also right in the town.
D. Mitchell 07/06/2018
Very comfortable with everything you might need. A lot of thought went into making the apartment very user friendly. Wonderful position. Appreciated the welcome provisions!We would come again
J Wilding 27/04/2018
Thank you for such a lovely apartment. So thoughtfully put together and well equipped. Very homely and clean and spacious. Amazing views and central so we would walk on the flat which was great as we had our elderly mum with us who loved it. So beautiful to be able to watch the sea from the balcony.
The first night the upstairs neighbours were very noisy, running up and down the stairs at 1am which wasn’t great. They seemed impervious to anyone else living in the building which was the only down side.
However, this wouldn’t stop us coming again.
Thank you!
Jane Reeves 30/03/2018
We found the balcony apartment very comfortable,and had everything there we needed.We would certainly stay there again.
Mike Hartshorn. 30/03/2018
We stayed out of season and the view over the water especially on the night of the super moon was breath taking , a photographers dream .The weather was chilly to say the least but there's still so much to do even in December and the apartment was lovely and cosy to come back to .The Christmas market was an unexpected bonus and I've managed to do most of my Christmas shopping without going on line or moving the car .This was our second visit this year and we'll be back again next year -absolutely love it .
Anne Fox-Smythe 18/12/2017
The essentials for a short seaside break in late November are: warm, cosy accommodation, close to local amenities and a great view. We couldn't sit out on the balcony (too cold) but we could take in a beautiful view of the sun shining on the sea just a few metres away. And the apartment was within 5 minutes walk of the cinema and restaurants. Couldn't be in a better location and parking was easy too!
Clare 01/12/2017
A perfectly located, well apportioned flat right on the seafront. It's ideal for long walks, strolls along the promenade or playing on the beach with the children. This is the third time we've visited and it just keeps getting better. We all loved our time here and can't wait to return. You can never tire of the sound of the waves crashing outside the windows.
Gareth Keevill 01/11/2017
Well equipped apartment, everything you could possibly need is there. Best welcome pack ever, and parking on the doorstep. No negative comments at all.
Janet Adams 26/10/2017
Very thoughtfully furnished holiday let (larger TV would be nice) with an amazing view thrown in! Very friendly and helpful staff at the end of the phone to complete the package. We'll definitely return. Thank you!
Val ans Mike 19/10/2017
Our second visit and just a enjoyable as our first. The well equipped kitchen is brilliant for those who like to cook every night and for those who don't the fish and chip shop /pub / pizza place and cafes are all within 2 minutes walk.Parking is a little tight if you have a big car and the seagulls used ours for target practice this time round but a small price to pay for what must be one of the best views in Swanage! We will definitely be back .
Anne Fox-Smythe 12/10/2017
We had a wonderful week in Balcony Apartment. The views are spectacular and the flat is very homely and welcoming.
Ruth 01/09/2017
Another lovely holiday, love the wellcome pack. Had trouble parking as no one took any notice of your private parking sign, got there in the end though. Will definately be back please send me details for next year., could you send me price list for all year. Would love to come other times, perhaps without children. Thankyou again very highly recommended. Xx
Jackie gyde 01/09/2017
Everything was perfect, especially the Welcome Pack as we travelled by train from Doncaster. The cleanliness of the flat, the bed linen and towels were fantastic, just like last year. How anyone could give a bad review on this particular balcony flat I do not know. The views from the flat, no words can describe them, only beautiful. Thank you for giving us a good holiday and particularly the weather in June.
Barbara Jones 30/06/2017
A charming superbly equipped and situated flat our second visit and we will be back.
Terence Flanagan 17/06/2017
It contains just about everything you could possibly need.
The position is superb on the seafront overlooking Swanage Bay.
It is in the centre of Swanage close to restaurants and shops.
John Dadswell 22/05/2017
We had a lovely week in this apartment. It is in a great location with wonderful views of the sea. It is fabulous to have such easy access to the beach but also be close to all the amenities in the town. It is really well equipped and we really appreciated the welcome pack which included a delicious apple cake. Thank you for a lovely holiday.
D Mitchell 22/04/2017
We really enjoyed our stay. The staff in the office were very helpful and the apartment was lovely.
A Smyk 26/02/2017
Our first time staying in the centre of Swanage and what a joy to have the shops , restaurants ,cinema etc all on the doorstep, we saved a fortune on car parking fees. The apartment was charming and the décor had a real beside the sea side flavour and was better equipped than many larger properties we have stayed in. The view is breath taking-in short ,we want to live here !We will definitely be returning .
Anne Fox-Smythe 14/10/2016
This is a lovely 2 bedroom apartment. It's location is perfect, right on the sea front. The app is fully equipped and it was a great touch to have a cake, fresh bread, butter, eggs and milk on arrival.

The app was clean with a great balcony. We stayed with my twin girls aged one and toddler 2 1/2. They shared the two room which was spacious. Very safe and suitable for young children.

Would recommend
K Power 07/10/2016
Really nice appartment with excellent views
Richard 26/08/2016
The apartment is absolutely fantastic in every way. The location is perfect, there is everything you could possibly need and more provided. The welcome pack on arrival was a lovely gesture, I would highly recommend this apartment and cant wait to visit again very soon!
Maria King 17/08/2016
This is our second visit to the Balcony apartment, we come earlier in the year this time, as we wanted to enjoy sitting on the balcony and watch what was going on in the bay.
the bus station is very handy, we managed to get to Weymouth this time, and Lulworth Cove which was good.
We recommend the fish shop Harlees on the corner, very handy for the day you arrive. Also during the week.
Janet Baxter 13/08/2016
We had a wonderful fortnight in the Balcony Apartment. The apartment was spotless, well appointed and the cake was yummy, (plus the rest of the welcome pack was enjoyed). The view from the balcony was to die for, overlooking the bay and cliffs with twinkling seas and sunshine streaming through the apartment every morning.

We have had holidays all over the South West but this was definately the best and we will be returning next year.
Linda Russell 13/08/2016
We have used this flat on many occasions , and would highly recommend it to everyone, stunning views mornings and evenings. Will definately be back next year. THankyou so much, please let us know vacancies for about same time next year. Xx Jackie, Pete, Georgina and Ashton. Xx
JAckie Gyde. 05/08/2016
We have used your flat on many occasions and have always recommended it to all our friends. The views mornings and evenings, very comfortable ideal location highly recommended. Please keep us a slot for next year. Thankyou so much for another lovely stay. Xx
THE GYDE FAMILY 03/08/2016
Fantastic clean and immaculate flat, no faults at all. A very much appreciated Welcome Pack especially the Dorset Apple Cake. The sea views changed every morning with the weather and so central for everything.
Barbara Jones 16/07/2016
It is the second time we have visited the Balcony apartment, we booked this time earlier in the year so we could enjoy sitting on the balcony and watch all that was going on in the bay. If only the weather had been a little better.
We have travelled on the buses, so handy the bus station, we even managed to go to Weymouth this time. Lulworth Cove was beautiful.. We arrived in our car and it never moved all week. The fish and chip shop on the corner we thoroughly recommend.
It was a wonderful holiday
Janet baxter 16/07/2016
We had a lovely holiday this year in Balcony Apartment. It was very well equipped and we loved the location. The welcome goodies were much appreciated.
Ruth 16/07/2016
Whole thing was great from start to finish.
apartment was bright, clean and well situated. also, importantly, bed was very comfortable.
basic items such as tea, coffee,cake etc. being supplied was a nice touch.
possibly the best view of any of the waterfront apartments in swanage.
Kevin 21/06/2016
Had a lovely time in the "Balcony Apartment".
The apartment was very well equipped indeed and very comfortable. The view out of the balcony was superb and most relaxing. There was nothing to fault our stay at all. The welcome pack was a great addition and we found the provision of towels and bedding most welcome indeed as it greatly cut down on the amount we needed to take.
Would thoroughly recommend the apartment and "dhcottages" (whose service, thus far, has been without fault). Had a brilliant time.
Mr and Mrs J. McFarlane. 22/04/2016
We had a great week staying in your lovely apartment which is such a high standard with absolutely everything one could need. We would have liked to come again but it is fully booked most of the summer - not surprisingly. Hopefully we will be back next year! We recommend the Italian restaurant la Trattoria around the corner- excellent food. also if you are near Wool the Black Bear pub is very good.
Mr Dadswell 14/03/2016
A very long time since we were in Swanage, but it was good to be back. We really enjoyed the apartment, which soon felt like a home from home. Dorset Cottage Holidays were efficient and helpful. The highlights were fish and chips from The Fish Plaice (x2) travelling to Corfe by train, walking to Old Harry Rocks and more visits to Love Cake than one cares to remember! Thank you for all you did to make it such a special holiday.
Mr & Mrs Horrocks 20/02/2016
A fantastic holiday. The nicest place we have ever stayed in our 5 visits to Swanage. The view is unbelievable. A lovely flat with everything anyone could ever wish for, the hospitality pack was welcome and the fittings made it home from home. we will definitely be back
Mr & Mrs A 13/02/2016
The apartment is fantastic. Very clean, comfortable and extremely well equipped. The food welcome pack was a lovely thought which we were not expecting. We loved the view and hearing the sound of the waves. We had some great local walks- recommend walking to Old Harry Rocks- wonderful views (books were very useful) Thank you so much we had a lovely week.
Sue & Garry 12/12/2015
The flat is fantastic, spacious, clean, everything you need. View from balcony- great. Great location right in the middle of everything. The welcome bit was a nice gesture (made us addicted to Dorset Apple Cake! Very nice). My mum visited us while we was here and after her looking around the flat she wants to book with you next year! Thank you for letting us stay in such a nice place!
S. K. D. M. 16/11/2015

Wonderful apartment and view, the goodies and supplies are very thoughtful and much appreciated, particularly the apple cake! Our love of Swanage was enhanced.
Mrs Hulbert 07/11/2015
Lovely weekend away, weather was amazing and location couldn't have been any better! Everything we needed right here and waiting. Windows with the sun shining through every morning were perfect! We will be back again!
A and A 05/11/2015
We have had an excellent time here, despite some bad weather!! But the apartment had everything we need! 🙂 Feeling from home from home! The girls are wanting to stay longer! We definitely are enjoying our stay.
W.N.J.A 29/10/2015
This is our second visit to the Balcony Apartment, both this year and before we have not been disappointed! Walking into the apartment to be met with these fantastic views is a great start to a wonderful week or R&R. the welcome basket is much appreciated and soon demolished! We really feel this is home from home with all the comforts. weve had a great weel lots of walking as usual and lucky with the weather. no doubt we will be back as Swanage has been drawing us in for the past 30 years!
Willis Family 24/10/2015
Great location- with chip shop next door. Worth a trip to The Globe Pub - lovely food. Fabulous walks to Durlston and Old Harry Stacks. Cycling along the promenade at Bournemouth is wonderful. Hengistbury Head well worth a visit and the chain ferry at Studland never loses its allure. Bird rescue at Arne is magical and the annual migration of swallows and warblers has been unforgettable. We will be back.
Anonymous 17/10/2015
We have had a lovely holiday in your delightful flat. There was nothing to fault.
It was very well equipped. It was very nice to have a welcome pack. The photos and pictures made it just like home. In fact it was as good as home from home, just a shame we never had time to sit on the balcony. It is really lovely to listen to the sea with the doors open. Also very handy having a Fish and Chip shop next door. They were so tasty!
Anonymous 06/10/2015
My Mother has been bringing me to Swanage since I was a baby so it was lovely to come this year with my Mother, Son and Fiance. The flat is absolutely perfect! Beautiful views and fantastic location. The welcome pack of tea bags, coffee, sugar, bread, milk and even a cake was such a lovely touch. A travel cot and highchair were provided for my son which meant we had less to pack, which was a real help. We will absolutely be coming back!
Louise and Family 03/10/2015
Lovely flat with great sea views. We had a great week visiting our daughter in Swanage. Will stay again when visiting. The welcome pack was excellent and we made good use of the cake and bread etc. Many thanks.
Karen and Paul 24/09/2015
Spacious, clean, well equipped homely apartment in an central part of the town. The view over the harbour was excellent.
Angela Manning 17/09/2015
This was a well presented flat, which was very clean and well equipped would definitely stay there again.
karen tophill 31/07/2015
We had a lovely week in the Balcony flat. It was clean and well equipped, and larger than the photos suggested. The real benefit was being so near to everything in the town, while being able to open the doors of the balcony to see and hear the sea lapping away just metres fron the house. The parking worked well, and while tight, was a real bonus. We would strongly recommend the flat for a Swanage break, and will definitely be back.
Chris and family 08/06/2015
Happy to be the first of what I am sure will be many, many happy guests! We have had a lovely sunny week with our baby daughter, introducing her to the great British seaside. We couldn't have asked for a better located or equipped place to stay, it is so convenient to pop in and out all day. Our daughter has had a great time too, the flat is perfect for little ones, she has had the run of the place, and has been practicing 'cruising' all round the sofas and coffee table.
Thankis for many happy memories! Our first family holiday.

We stayed out of season and the view over the water especially on the night of the super moon was breath taking , a photographers dream .The weather was chilly to say the least but there's still so much to do even in December and the apartment was lovely and cosy to come back to .The Christmas market was an unexpected bonus and I've managed to do most of my Christmas shopping without going on line or moving the car .This was our second visit this year and we'll be back again next year -absolutely love it .

The essentials for a short seaside break in late November are: warm, cosy accommodation, close to local amenities and a great view. We couldn't sit out on the balcony (too cold) but we could take in a beautiful view of the sun shining on the sea just a few metres away. And the apartment was within 5 minutes walk of the cinema and restaurants. Couldn't be in a better location and parking was easy too!

A perfectly located, well apportioned flat right on the seafront. It's ideal for long walks, strolls along the promenade or playing on the beach with the children. This is the third time we've visited and it just keeps getting better. We all loved our time here and can't wait to return. You can never tire of the sound of the waves crashing outside the windows.
Gareth Keevill 01/11/2017
Well equipped apartment, everything you could possibly need is there. Best welcome pack ever, and parking on the doorstep. No negative comments at all.
Janet Adams 26/10/2017
Very thoughtfully furnished holiday let (larger TV would be nice) with an amazing view thrown in! Very friendly and helpful staff at the end of the phone to complete the package. We'll definitely return. Thank you!
Val ans Mike 19/10/2017
Our second visit and just a enjoyable as our first. The well equipped kitchen is brilliant for those who like to cook every night and for those who don't the fish and chip shop /pub / pizza place and cafes are all within 2 minutes walk.Parking is a little tight if you have a big car and the seagulls used ours for target practice this time round but a small price to pay for what must be one of the best views in Swanage! We will definitely be back .
Anne Fox-Smythe 12/10/2017
We had a wonderful week in Balcony Apartment. The views are spectacular and the flat is very homely and welcoming.
Ruth 01/09/2017
Another lovely holiday, love the wellcome pack. Had trouble parking as no one took any notice of your private parking sign, got there in the end though. Will definately be back please send me details for next year., could you send me price list for all year. Would love to come other times, perhaps without children. Thankyou again very highly recommended. Xx
Jackie gyde 01/09/2017
Everything was perfect, especially the Welcome Pack as we travelled by train from Doncaster. The cleanliness of the flat, the bed linen and towels were fantastic, just like last year. How anyone could give a bad review on this particular balcony flat I do not know. The views from the flat, no words can describe them, only beautiful. Thank you for giving us a good holiday and particularly the weather in June.
Barbara Jones 30/06/2017
A charming superbly equipped and situated flat our second visit and we will be back.
Terence Flanagan 17/06/2017
It contains just about everything you could possibly need.
The position is superb on the seafront overlooking Swanage Bay.
It is in the centre of Swanage close to restaurants and shops.
John Dadswell 22/05/2017
We had a lovely week in this apartment. It is in a great location with wonderful views of the sea. It is fabulous to have such easy access to the beach but also be close to all the amenities in the town. It is really well equipped and we really appreciated the welcome pack which included a delicious apple cake. Thank you for a lovely holiday.
D Mitchell 22/04/2017
We really enjoyed our stay. The staff in the office were very helpful and the apartment was lovely.
A Smyk 26/02/2017
Our first time staying in the centre of Swanage and what a joy to have the shops , restaurants ,cinema etc all on the doorstep, we saved a fortune on car parking fees. The apartment was charming and the décor had a real beside the sea side flavour and was better equipped than many larger properties we have stayed in. The view is breath taking-in short ,we want to live here !We will definitely be returning .
Anne Fox-Smythe 14/10/2016
This is a lovely 2 bedroom apartment. It's location is perfect, right on the sea front. The app is fully equipped and it was a great touch to have a cake, fresh bread, butter, eggs and milk on arrival.

The app was clean with a great balcony. We stayed with my twin girls aged one and toddler 2 1/2. They shared the two room which was spacious. Very safe and suitable for young children.

Would recommend
K Power 07/10/2016
Really nice appartment with excellent views
Richard 26/08/2016
The apartment is absolutely fantastic in every way. The location is perfect, there is everything you could possibly need and more provided. The welcome pack on arrival was a lovely gesture, I would highly recommend this apartment and cant wait to visit again very soon!
Maria King 17/08/2016
This is our second visit to the Balcony apartment, we come earlier in the year this time, as we wanted to enjoy sitting on the balcony and watch what was going on in the bay.
the bus station is very handy, we managed to get to Weymouth this time, and Lulworth Cove which was good.
We recommend the fish shop Harlees on the corner, very handy for the day you arrive. Also during the week.
Janet Baxter 13/08/2016
We had a wonderful fortnight in the Balcony Apartment. The apartment was spotless, well appointed and the cake was yummy, (plus the rest of the welcome pack was enjoyed). The view from the balcony was to die for, overlooking the bay and cliffs with twinkling seas and sunshine streaming through the apartment every morning.

We have had holidays all over the South West but this was definately the best and we will be returning next year.
Linda Russell 13/08/2016
We have used this flat on many occasions , and would highly recommend it to everyone, stunning views mornings and evenings. Will definately be back next year. THankyou so much, please let us know vacancies for about same time next year. Xx Jackie, Pete, Georgina and Ashton. Xx
JAckie Gyde. 05/08/2016
We have used your flat on many occasions and have always recommended it to all our friends. The views mornings and evenings, very comfortable ideal location highly recommended. Please keep us a slot for next year. Thankyou so much for another lovely stay. Xx
THE GYDE FAMILY 03/08/2016
Fantastic clean and immaculate flat, no faults at all. A very much appreciated Welcome Pack especially the Dorset Apple Cake. The sea views changed every morning with the weather and so central for everything.
Barbara Jones 16/07/2016
It is the second time we have visited the Balcony apartment, we booked this time earlier in the year so we could enjoy sitting on the balcony and watch all that was going on in the bay. If only the weather had been a little better.
We have travelled on the buses, so handy the bus station, we even managed to go to Weymouth this time. Lulworth Cove was beautiful.. We arrived in our car and it never moved all week. The fish and chip shop on the corner we thoroughly recommend.
It was a wonderful holiday
Janet baxter 16/07/2016
We had a lovely holiday this year in Balcony Apartment. It was very well equipped and we loved the location. The welcome goodies were much appreciated.
Ruth 16/07/2016
Whole thing was great from start to finish.
apartment was bright, clean and well situated. also, importantly, bed was very comfortable.
basic items such as tea, coffee,cake etc. being supplied was a nice touch.
possibly the best view of any of the waterfront apartments in swanage.
Kevin 21/06/2016
Had a lovely time in the "Balcony Apartment".
The apartment was very well equipped indeed and very comfortable. The view out of the balcony was superb and most relaxing. There was nothing to fault our stay at all. The welcome pack was a great addition and we found the provision of towels and bedding most welcome indeed as it greatly cut down on the amount we needed to take.
Would thoroughly recommend the apartment and "dhcottages" (whose service, thus far, has been without fault). Had a brilliant time.
Mr and Mrs J. McFarlane. 22/04/2016
We had a great week staying in your lovely apartment which is such a high standard with absolutely everything one could need. We would have liked to come again but it is fully booked most of the summer - not surprisingly. Hopefully we will be back next year! We recommend the Italian restaurant la Trattoria around the corner- excellent food. also if you are near Wool the Black Bear pub is very good.
Mr Dadswell 14/03/2016
A very long time since we were in Swanage, but it was good to be back. We really enjoyed the apartment, which soon felt like a home from home. Dorset Cottage Holidays were efficient and helpful. The highlights were fish and chips from The Fish Plaice (x2) travelling to Corfe by train, walking to Old Harry Rocks and more visits to Love Cake than one cares to remember! Thank you for all you did to make it such a special holiday.
Mr & Mrs Horrocks 20/02/2016
A fantastic holiday. The nicest place we have ever stayed in our 5 visits to Swanage. The view is unbelievable. A lovely flat with everything anyone could ever wish for, the hospitality pack was welcome and the fittings made it home from home. we will definitely be back
Mr & Mrs A 13/02/2016
The apartment is fantastic. Very clean, comfortable and extremely well equipped. The food welcome pack was a lovely thought which we were not expecting. We loved the view and hearing the sound of the waves. We had some great local walks- recommend walking to Old Harry Rocks- wonderful views (books were very useful) Thank you so much we had a lovely week.
Sue & Garry 12/12/2015
The flat is fantastic, spacious, clean, everything you need. View from balcony- great. Great location right in the middle of everything. The welcome bit was a nice gesture (made us addicted to Dorset Apple Cake! Very nice). My mum visited us while we was here and after her looking around the flat she wants to book with you next year! Thank you for letting us stay in such a nice place!

Wonderful apartment and view, the goodies and supplies are very thoughtful and much appreciated, particularly the apple cake! Our love of Swanage was enhanced.
Mrs Hulbert 07/11/2015
Lovely weekend away, weather was amazing and location couldn't have been any better! Everything we needed right here and waiting. Windows with the sun shining through every morning were perfect! We will be back again!
A and A 05/11/2015
We have had an excellent time here, despite some bad weather!! But the apartment had everything we need! 🙂 Feeling from home from home! The girls are wanting to stay longer! We definitely are enjoying our stay.
W.N.J.A 29/10/2015
This is our second visit to the Balcony Apartment, both this year and before we have not been disappointed! Walking into the apartment to be met with these fantastic views is a great start to a wonderful week or R&R. the welcome basket is much appreciated and soon demolished! We really feel this is home from home with all the comforts. weve had a great weel lots of walking as usual and lucky with the weather. no doubt we will be back as Swanage has been drawing us in for the past 30 years!
Willis Family 24/10/2015
Great location- with chip shop next door. Worth a trip to The Globe Pub - lovely food. Fabulous walks to Durlston and Old Harry Stacks. Cycling along the promenade at Bournemouth is wonderful. Hengistbury Head well worth a visit and the chain ferry at Studland never loses its allure. Bird rescue at Arne is magical and the annual migration of swallows and warblers has been unforgettable. We will be back.

We have had a lovely holiday in your delightful flat. There was nothing to fault.
It was very well equipped. It was very nice to have a welcome pack. The photos and pictures made it just like home. In fact it was as good as home from home, just a shame we never had time to sit on the balcony. It is really lovely to listen to the sea with the doors open. Also very handy having a Fish and Chip shop next door. They were so tasty!

My Mother has been bringing me to Swanage since I was a baby so it was lovely to come this year with my Mother, Son and Fiance. The flat is absolutely perfect! Beautiful views and fantastic location. The welcome pack of tea bags, coffee, sugar, bread, milk and even a cake was such a lovely touch. A travel cot and highchair were provided for my son which meant we had less to pack, which was a real help. We will absolutely be coming back!
Louise and Family 03/10/2015
Lovely flat with great sea views. We had a great week visiting our daughter in Swanage. Will stay again when visiting. The welcome pack was excellent and we made good use of the cake and bread etc. Many thanks.
Karen and Paul 24/09/2015
Spacious, clean, well equipped homely apartment in an central part of the town. The view over the harbour was excellent.
Angela Manning 17/09/2015
This was a well presented flat, which was very clean and well equipped would definitely stay there again.
karen tophill 31/07/2015
We had a lovely week in the Balcony flat. It was clean and well equipped, and larger than the photos suggested. The real benefit was being so near to everything in the town, while being able to open the doors of the balcony to see and hear the sea lapping away just metres fron the house. The parking worked well, and while tight, was a real bonus. We would strongly recommend the flat for a Swanage break, and will definitely be back.
Chris and family 08/06/2015
Happy to be the first of what I am sure will be many, many happy guests! We have had a lovely sunny week with our baby daughter, introducing her to the great British seaside. We couldn't have asked for a better located or equipped place to stay, it is so convenient to pop in and out all day. Our daughter has had a great time too, the flat is perfect for little ones, she has had the run of the place, and has been practicing 'cruising' all round the sofas and coffee table.
Thankis for many happy memories! Our first family holiday.
