We have just returned from a week at the Steam Railway Cottage with our 2 year old and 4 month old and want to share how fantastic it is. We have stayed in several cottages in the South West, and this is the best we’ve encountered by far. The cottage is spotlessly clean, modern and comfortably furnished, with some lovely home from home touches. The owners very kindly put up safety gates, a travel cot, and high chair ready for our arrival and provided cutlery and crockery suitable for children. We also appreciated that blinds and sockets had been made safe in the children’s room. These touches make such a difference to a family holiday! The location is excellent, 5 minutes to town and no more than 10 to the beach. Our daughter loved the viewing area for the Swanage railway, just a toddle up the road and our week was punctuated with excited shouts of “Train!” every time the steam engine chuffed past. Brilliant. We can also recommend Farmer Palmers (toddler heaven), Monkey World, Knoll Beach Studland, the steam railway to Corfe and, of course, the lovely town of Swanage.
A brilliant holiday and can’t recommend the cottage highly enough.More
