“Lovely cottage - fab location”
Reviewed 8 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

My husband and I recently stayed here in the May half term with our 2 children (both under 6). We couldn't not fault the cottage, great location, decorated beautifully and nice touches like the jam and flags for our sand castles (my eldest says thank you).

The boys bedroom was decorated so well, they loved sleeping in it, it was all a big adventure. It was great to not have to use the car to get around if we didn't want to, we loved being able to walk to the station and went to Corfe for the day on the train. I spent all my summers in Swanage as a child and the boys loved it just like I did. We were lucky that the weather was good and we spent a lot of time on the beach.

If you have little children though make sure you take a stair gate, saves worrying about toddlers walking around in the night.

Can not recommend this cottage highly enough. Thank you :-)

“Excellent Holiday Cottage”
Reviewed 28 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We found Taunton Cottage to be an excellent choice for our stay in Swanage. It was comfortable, clean and well-equipped. The central location was also very convenient and the parking place was an added bonus.

We all had a fantastic time in the beautiful Taunton Cottage. Its in a perfect location, close to everything you could need on holiday. The cottage facilities were brilliant, super comfortable sofa and beds, and the kitchen was spacious. Would certainly go back any time.

This was a perfect holiday home: Impeccably clean, beautifully decorated and furnished and so close to the beach, the shops and a range of eating places.

“A hidden gem in the heart of Swanage”
Reviewed 27 February 2015 for a stay in September 2014

A lovely cottage close to all the amenities of Swanage. I stayed here with 3 girl friends and had a great time. The cottage was easy walking distance to the beach and Old Stone Quay where we had food in the sunshine and enjoyed watching a local wedding. The cottage had everything we needed, was immaculately clean, comfortable beds and two bathrooms so no queuing necessary! All in all a fun holiday.
