We only had a long weekend and were sad to leave. We Will definitely be recommending this to our friends. A Lovely comfy bed and so soft towels too! As we know the area living just over an hour away, this was a really comfy and warm, well equipped bungalow, and nice to not have to do much driving once we had settled in. Our little dog was well behaved once he had his little sniff about! The weather was fabulous for March and we made the most of our short, but sweet, break. We would highly recommend the Swanage steam train..get the park and ride at Norden, just down the road 10-15 minutes or so. Blue pool is another beautiful place to spend some time at. "Archie" thoroughly enjoyed his walk around the pool. Lulworth Cove is as beautiful as it looks in any photo you may have seen. And if you feel energetic the walk to Durdle Door is amazing. Weymouth is a wonderful seaside resort, something for everyone. A great beach, beautiful harbour, the Nothe Fort with great views of Portland, also well worth a visit. All in all a lovely very good value property. How could l forget... the goodies for a cooked breakfast, plus milk and tea/coffee, were a very unexpected surprise!! Think l had better book another break!! Do it, you will not be disappointed!
