The Neighborhood

Our road is a quiet cul-de-sac, in a beautiful, leafy, peaceful area of Swanage. It's a 10 minute walk above the town centre, railway, bus station and the beautiful, soft, sandy beaches.

Next to our house there are various footpaths leading to Durlston Country Park and Castle, Townsend Nature Reserve and the South Coast Path. You can walk the South Coast Path to Studland, Sandbanks and Poole, or go in the other direction to Worth Matravers (Square & Compass Pub), Corfe Castle, Kimmeridge Bay and Lulworth Cove.

The Black Swan Inn/Pub is only a few minutes walk from us, it serves a great fish pie, mussels and delicious reasonably priced food (vegetarian and gluten free options).

Two of our German guests had no use of a car from the day they landed at Southampton airport until they returned to Germany. Instead of driving they wanted to hike, use the bus, or take the train. One day, they walked from our house to Poole Harbour via the ferry at Studland, at Poole Quay they caught the bus back to Swanage. On another occasion, we drove them to Lulworth Cove with a picnic, they then walked back to our house along the South Coast Path, arriving late that afternoon, exhausted, but elated. Several times they walked to Wareham and Corfe Castle and The Square & Compass pub at Worth Matravers.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Mycket trevliga och intresserade bovärdar! Otroligt fräscht boende, rent och snyggt. Stilfullt inrett. Angela och Nick fixade och ställde upp med allt vi behövde, som badhandukar, (website hidden) blev inbjudna att även använda deras del av huset när vi behövde. Fin, inbyggd trädgård att sola och fika i.
    Fina promenadvägar och vackra omgivningar, nära till stadskärnan gör att detta var ett (website hidden) vill verkligen rekommendera det här boendet! Vi har bott på många olika BoB i England och det här är överlägset bäst!

  • Unser Aufenthalt bei Angela und Nick war der schönste, den wir je hatten.
    Vom ersten Moment an fühlten wir uns ausgesprochen wohl. Angela und Nick sind zwei ganz besonders herzliche Menschen, die alles dafür tun, dass sich ihre Gäste gut aufgehoben fühlen. Besonders Angela sorgte stets dafür, dass es uns gut ging.
    Die Räumlichkeiten waren großzügig, hell, geschmackvoll eingerichtet und dekoriert.Zudem war alles blitzsauber.
    Das Frühstück war reichlich und von sehr guter Qualität.
    Hinter der uns zur Verfügung stehenden kleinen Küche befand sich ein wunderschöner Garten in dem man entspannen konnte.
    Swanage ist ein hübscher Badeort mit vielen Sehenswürdigkeiten in der Nähe, die wir aber während unseres leider zu kurzen Aufenthaltes nicht alle besichtigen konnten.
    Wenn wir das naechste Mal nach Swanage kommen werden wir auf jeden Fall wieder bei
    Angela und Nick wohnen.
    Thanks a lot Angela and Nick for sharing your nice home with us.

  • Angela and Nick were extremely welcoming, and our initial greeting included fresh coffee and home made cake - delicious and a wonderful start to a really lovely short break. The photos of the guest wing cant quite do it justice, it is fresh, clean, tastefully decorated and is much more spacious than we expected. We were very lucky with the weather and we certainly made use of the private garden. Angela made us all feel very pampered without intruding into our family break, she is a really kind and generous host, who seems to genuinely enjoy making sure that her guests have the best holiday possible. Her recommendations for restaurants were excellent. The beds were very comfortable, the weather was hot but the guest wing was cool and a pleasant retreat. Cannot recommend highly enough! Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

  • We had a brilliant time with Angela & Nick, I went down so I could catch up with my paperwork with no distractions. Because of the space we were able to spread out into the second bedroom and the garden room. I even worked in the garden. The accommodation was lovely & clean with big fluffy towels. A lovely choice for the continental breakfast with fresh fruit salad daily. Nothing was a problem.
    We had dinner in Swanage. The Chilli Red was fabulous, all cooked fresh which was ideal for me as I cannot have too much salt due to an allergy. Food was amazing. Hosts were very friendly & helpful. Good local knowledge, Definitely want to go back, but next time to enjoy the fantastic area.

  • Angela und Nick sind ganz wundervolle Gastgeber. Bei unsere Ankunft am Abend wurden wir sehr herzlich in Empfang genommen. Nick hat uns am Abend sogar den Weg zum Restaurant gezeigt indem er mit seinem Wagen vorgefahren ist. Angela ist sehr lieb und hilfsbereit. Die Unterkunft ist liebevoll eingerichtet, sehr sauber und einfach nur spitze. Fazit: Nicht einfach nur ein B&B sondern wie ein Besuch bei Freunden. Wir würden sofort wiederkommen. Danke für die schönen Tage bei euch.

  • Angela was very welcoming, and so helpful in advising where to eat, what to see etc. We felt "at home" from the start.
    Perfect for us, v fresh, clean bright accommodation, "just right" breakfast when WE felt like having it, with fresh fruit, lovely muesli & toast. Nice garden to relax in after the wonderful long days out looking at beautiful Dorset. Would totally recommend. 1 night or 7, its ideal, and SO peaceful at night, we slept well!
    Thanks again both Angela & Nick for making it a lovely holiday.

  • Thank you Angela and Nick for your warm welcome - and Kipper the Dog who was a delight in his own very gentle way! You were so very kind and thoughtful and your accommodation is excellent and beautifully decorated.

    It was perfect as I was travelling with my 88 year old father and 77 year old aunt, both with restricted mobility and your Guest Wing allowed us to move from car to accommodation with ease and to relax in comfort. We particularly enjoyed our breakfasts in the dining area overlooking your beautiful garden.

    I would totally recommend your Guest Wing - it is very special.

  • My wife, Sally, and I thoroughly enjoyed the three days we stayed at the Guest Wing, and Angela and Nick were the perfect hosts. Their home is nicely appointed for any stay from an overnighter through to an extended stay of a week or more.

    Angela is especially gracious and made us feel right at home from the moment we arrived. It is very obvious that she truly cares about her guests, and she was extremely valuable in helping us explore the area surrounding Swanage...she even led us on great walks along the coastline and nearby farming was great!

    The bottom line for us is that we will definitely return to the Guest Wing whenever we're back in Dorset...and, we sincerely hope that will be sooner than later!

  • A very lovely stay with warm and generous hosts. Their home is exquisite and very tasteful and the guest wing echoes this.Nick and Angela are so helpful and they cannot do enough for you . It is a stunning area with lots of walks and places to visit and both Angela and Nick have a wealth of knowledge about them all ! The private , enclosed garden is a relaxing place to sit for morning coffee or an evening wine ! We did both ! This was our second visit and it definitely won't be our last! Clive and Sarah.

My husband Nick and I enjoy good food, music, laughter and sharing life with family and friends. My son and his beautiful Italian wife are both architects, so heated conversations over food, travel, buildings and interiors are often a topic of conversation. Our life motto is 'do unto others as you would be done by'.
