Bathroom features shower and bath. The bathroom is next on the list for rennovation, so not 'done' like the rest of the house, yet. But, fully functional and clean.

Interaction with guests

You can reach me by phone during your visit if you have any questions. My neighbour at No. 40 is on hand to help if needed.

Other things to note

Bed linen and towel service is optional.

You can request all beds to be made up for your arrival for an additional £40 fee. Or, you can choose to bring your own bath towels and bed linen (single duvets in front bedroom and attic, king size duvet in double room). Or, you can use the house bed linen, from the linen cupboard and wash, dry and return to cupboard before you leave.

There are beach towels available in the house you can borrow and wash before you leave. Washing machine and dryer in the cellar.

On booking, I will send recommendations of fun things to do in the area, restaurants to book and walks.

Lovely old Victorian place with period features. We were pleasantly surprised by nice the kitchen and living room were. It is definitely only a 10 min walk to beach and the centre of town but be warned it is all up hill on the way back. Not completely child safe for toddlers as there are very steep stairs to the main landing.

We loved our stay here, right from arrival we felt at home and the recommendations from Carol of places to visit and things to do was very welcome! The house is a small walk to the centre of Swanage and was perfect for us and our kids. There are some lovely touches in the house and we were able to relax and enjoy it as were the children with the 2 boxes of toys! We hope to return in the near future.

Fantastic house, close to beach and all amenities. The host Carole gave us some brilliant tips on where to eat and where to go for day trips. The house was clean and comfortable. We will definitely stay there again and would highly recommend it.

A really lovely holiday home. Carol's place had everything we needed for a short weekend break. It was in the perfect location with stunning views out the back of the house and very comfortable. I would definitely recommend a stay here if you plan to visit Swanage. Thank you Carol!

Response from Carol:
So glad it all worked out for you. I remember what it's like with very young children - it's a major operation getting anywhere, so well done you!
