We had a lovely time and couldn't fault a thing. Thank yoi

Mrs Yvette A,

Loved being able to play table tennis . Good house for families of all ages - spacious and well equipped .

Mrs Sarah C,

The area was enhanced by the sun that stayed out all bank holiday weekend. Several excellent beaches and places to explore nearby. Plenty to keep all the different generations happy! The property was absolutely fab. It had so many amenities that we didn't expect but were very grateful for. Lovely property and lovely part of the world. Thoroughly recommend.

Previous Customer,

We have just had a fabulous week in Swanage staying at The Retreat. The property had everything we needed for a family holiday with teenagers including a lovely garden with furniture and BBQ. The garage was a real bonus for storing bikes and playing table tennis! Two good bathrooms and a downstairs loo. Location-wise the property is an easy flat walk to town and you can stop off at the Swanage steam railway engine sheds to watch the engines being steamed up for the day on your walk into town to get the papers and breakfast.

Mrs Nicky M,
