Owner Kathy Jones was very helpful. The location, within walking distance of the shops, markets and riverside facilities at Wareham, was ideal for walks along the River Frome, trips to the stunning Purbeck coast (Lulworth, Kimmeridge, Swanage), Corfe Castle, RSPB reserve at Arne, Brownsea Island, steam trains on the Swanage Railway, ... - too much to do in one week!

Everything possible is provided, the children's huge toy cupboard was especially popular with our two small grandchildren. Anna is particularly attentive making sure you have everything you need and most importantly enjoying her home as much as she and her family obviously do. A lovely happy place to take a break.Enjoy.
