Very enjoyable stay but had difficulty finding anchor cottage as no number or name of road was given. Lots to see and do within 25 mile radius.

“A superb holiday cottage”

Anchor Cottage is a charming holiday rental. Our first reaction was to call it quirky, which indeed it is. However the charm and comfort of the place grew on us during the week we stayed. It has the feeling of being a real family home.

It has a very well equipped kitchen, which looks out over the garden which includes a stream and is beautifully planted. We were lucky with the weather during our stay and enjoyed sitting out in the garden which is a real sun-trap. There is a large conservatory which acts as a dining room. All of these are at the back of the house and are secluded and quiet.

The bedrooms are both light and spacious. We loved the view of the night sky through the dormer window in the main bedroom! The living room is comfortable and airy, facing the front of the house. There is a little road noise during the day, but the double glazing keeps this out quite well.

There is plenty of parking space on the long drive. We found this a good base from which to walk. It has good access to the local footpaths. It takes about 20 minutes to walk to the centre of Swanage and the steam railway up to Corfe Castle. Well worth a visit. There is also a regular bus service with stops very close to the cottage.

Unlike most rental properties, it is only bookable for a short season during the summer months. The owners make the booking process very easy and the directions and information which they provide are comprehensive.


This is certainly a cottage which we would like to visit again.
