The bathroom needs updating as shower head had no fixing so impossible to wash hair and bath needs replacing. Lounge was very dark and family of four next door could see straight in so we had to keep the curtains shut so even darker! Felt it was overpriced at £690 when we weren’t allowed to go in until 7pm on Friday night but had to leave by 9am on the last Friday. It was a quiet spot and had a parking space and we used the patio a lot. Decor is notch pitchy and needs sorting out.
We stayed in the cottage for 3 nights, on the whole it was pretty good, nice and warm, fab kitchen with all the amenities but what let it down for me was the level of cleanliness. There were so many cobwebs and spiders especially in the lounge and bathroom, so many I didn’t stay in the lounge as it was too dark in there to spot the spiders, so didn’t feel as if I could relax. The bath needs replacing as it’s all marked and scratched and the outside patio area was a mess with weeds, leaves and discarded old pots. Again loads of cobwebs covering the outside window sills and doors doesn’t look like it’s been cleaned all summer so not that pleasant to look at. Parking is a bit tight outside but doable and Swanage itself was nice about a 20 minute walk into town.
