“What is not to like?”
Reviewed 15 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Lovely 'chocolate box' cottage in an excellent location.It has everything you could possibly need.Loved the garden and the real bonus was the excellent weather we had during our stay.
Two decent pubs in the village.Everyone was really friendly.However,the local shop is quite expensive so I would recommend a 7 mile trip to the Sainsburys in Wareham.
I would certainly stay here again and would recommend to others.

“Beautiful cottage in an idyllic location, perfect for family getaways!”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Swallows cottage earlier this month. The cottage itself is beautiful - a real mixture of traditional features with some lovely modern touches. Its location is perfect for country walks and is close to so many places which make great day trips out. I will definitely be booking up again soon!
