Where are our cottages located?

We have cottages in Swanage itself, Harmans Cross, Langton Matravers, Worth Matravers and Arne.

What is so special about the area?

Well the answer to that is simple; Swanage itself is a stunning Victorian coastal town that sits on the eastern edge of the Jurassic Coast, and enjoys mild temperatures all year round. The town is under an hour away from both Weymouth and Bournemouth and enjoys a short ferry ride to the coastal town of Poole. The villages of Harmans Cross, Langton Matravers, Worth Matravers and Arne are all unique in their own right and offer a quiet break away without being too far from Swanage's restaurants and bars.

What is there to do in Swanage?

Swanage can provide an endless list of activities and attractions to keep you busy whilst on your holiday. From Swanage town centre you can walk to the beautiful sandy beach, aptly named Swanage Beach and enjoy the golden sands, or try your hand at some watersports. If walking and cycling is more your thing, then you won’t be left disappointed. From Swanage there are many walks and bridleways to take your fancy, for a more detailed guide of things to do in Swanage, please click here.

In addition to this, we have very high levels of property retention, which we believe speaks volumes for the service we provide.

We thought the Old Dairy House was delightful. It was homely and comfortable, just right for a family group. The housekeeper was very helpful and provided plenty of hand wash, loo rolls etc. and tea towels for our use, it was very thoughtful. Full marks!
