2 extra people can be accommodated on the large 3 seater sofa bed in the lounge. There is an extra charge of £15 per person per night (including self serve cereal / toast breakfast) should you wish to invite additional guests/children to use this sofa as a bed.
We allow one night stays.
The door to your Guest Room is lockable!
There is a weather station in the bedroom which advises indoor & outdoor temperatures.
I am happily separated from the kids Dad, so basically every other weekend is Kid free! Nick often comes round to see the kids during the week and it is amicable.
Down to earth family home which has been decluttered and deep cleaned for weekly Summer bookings.
We have been smoke & pet free for over 10 years. However, there is an ashtray for smoking in the garden.
The family bathroom is quite spacious with a separate shower as well as a sunken bath with shower attachment. Plenty of shelving, shower caddy and towel rails space.
You will have have access to the lounge, dining end of kitchen, one shelf of fridge space, conservatory, gardens and bathroom. Fair use please on telephone.
The kitchen is quite small and therefore we would appreciate that it is not available to use. However if you require a picnic or an evening meal (same as what I am cooking for the kids and me, diet is quite varied from pizza to salmon, veg and cous cous), we could come to arrangement with suitable notice!
However, considering a suggestion from a guest whom stayed recently, for a trial period, we will allow use of kitchen after 7pm approx but can not guarantee everything available, ie items in the dishwasher. After your use, we expect it to be left in a clean and tidy state. If this option is abused, the kitchen will be not available for future guests.
The washing machine is available with suitable notice!
We had foreign students for the first time ever for 3 weeks in July and we really enjoyed their company. We would like to hope that you would fit into the family home as well as the students did.
We have good knowledge of the local area and have a local OS map to borrow.
There is a bus stop within 100 metres of the house, but we are in a rural area and therefore public transport is not ideal. A car would be the best option which would give you the option to go anywhere. Otherwise depending on commitments, we may be able to drop you off somewhere to give you the option of doing a long walk back, etc.
Please be aware that the room is normally in use and not a spare room already set up, therefore we will need some notice to get it ready for your use. We would appreciate at least 24 hours notice after confirmed booking.
I have just bought a new mobile so still getting used to it. Please bear with me, until the evening, when I can get on the computer and look at full details after kids in bed! Approx 8pm.
Hope you stay with us, otherwise have a great time in Swanage anyway.
Melanie, Adam and Alex were super hosts.Plenty of hot water, food and drink. Lovely big room, cosy and warm house which was easy to find. A short walk from the house and you are out on the Purbecks. A thoroughly enjoyable weekend. Recommended.
melanie was an excellent host, nice large room, clean, good location for walking and great value.
