The Space

April Cottage B & B and Lapland Lodge B & B, Harmans Cross (halfway between Swanage and Corfe Castle). Open Mid-May - End October.
April Cottage is a traditional Cottage (1 Double en suite / 1 Twin with private bathroom) set in a large garden, ideally located midway between Corfe Castle and Swanage on the A 351 on the Isle of Purbeck. The Lapland Lodge is situated on a fantastic platform overlooking the garden and can be used for overnight stays (3 - 4 persons) or simply for an unforgettable BBQ (see also separate AirBnB listing).
Your hosts Joanna and Peter Burri – Weaver have many years of experience in the Hospitality industry and have recently managed Boutique Hotels in exotic places like the Seychelles and Zanzibar. As soon as you enter their house you will experience the unique Anglo – Swiss hospitality. You will also find many memorabilia from the very interesting past of the Weaver family. The grand-parents were stationed in Sikkim before WWI and the grand-mother was one of the first European women to walk into Tibet having to cross the many mountains and Glaciers. Her son Peter Weaver was a Major in the 1st SAS and a War hero in WW2. Joanna was the first British women representing Great Britain in the Luge event at the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid. Both Joanna and Peter love Nature and, if time permitting, will gladly show you around or accompany you on one of the many beautiful walks.

Interaction with Guests

Other Things to Note
