“A lovely cottage in a peaceful location”
Reviewed 2 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

This is a beautiful cottage with great views across the valley.It is located in a very quiet country location yet only 5 miles from Weymouth.The Dorset coast is well worth visiting.

“Fantastic cottage”
Reviewed 2 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Well equipped, pretty cottage complete with books and toys. Enclosed child- and dog-friendly garden. Beautiful location. My only tiny quibble is that I prefer a proper double bed to joined singles. Would love to return!

“Peaceful house in beautiful countryside.”

The Swallows is a two-bedroom semi-detached cottage in rural Dorset. It's only a 10-minute drive to the bustling seaside town of Weymouth, so best of both worlds.

The house is pretty, airy, comfortable in size and furnishings. The kitchen is very well kitted-out (decent knives, plenty of table settings, more saucepans than you could possibly need...). The living room is comfortable, with a decent range of channels on the TV, a DVD player, dozens of books and some periodicals and guidebooks. The ceilings are a little low, so watch your head. The bedrooms are a good size. Most important of all, though, is that the house was so immaculately clean, it might have been the first time it was let.

Aside from the house, there's a garden in which it was pleasant to sit out and eat or let the kids run around. There's off-road parking. There is access to an outbuilding where we could do laundry, play table-tennis and table football and use the internet.

In short, a home from home that contributed to a lovely holiday.

I have two warnings:

1. There is no mobile phone service in the area.

2. It is very hard to find, so get very explicit directions from the owners.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?
How easy was key pickup/access to the property? Overall condition of the property

Liked best: The absolute peace, not even distant traffic sounds.
Liked least: Trying to direct friends to the house without the benefit of a mobile phone
