About Jason Haiselden
We have lived in Swanage for the last 12 years and have run Buddies as a B&B and Holiday home for the last 9 years.
Jason Haiselden purchased this House in 2005
Why Jason Haiselden chose Swanage
We love Swanage for its olde world feel. Swanage is a real traditional seaside town with loads to do in and around. From taking advantage of the wonderful scenery and countryside, to scuba diving and rock climbing, and everything in between. We have found that people come to Swanage for various reasons; Scuba diving, walking, climbing, mountain biking or just to visit. Couples, families and groups are all offered a warm welcome year round. Well behaved children are welcome.

Perfect retreat for all generations of the family
Very spacious, clean and tidy. Everything you need at hand. Beach walks so close. A shower or bathroom to each bedroom made life so easy.
Great for family groups
We were a large family group of various ages. We enjoyed our stay in the house, it was very convenient for the town and the beach. Jason was very helpful sorting out a couple of problems .
Three generations enjoyed their stay.
Nine of us, aged 5 to 80+, enjoyed our week despite mixed weather. The house and sheltered garden together were very well equipped. Its location is very convenient being within walking distance of the town and beach though lovers of wide sandy beaches will choose the short drive to Studland where I recommend the National Trust car park at Knole. There is even an Off-licence/Convenience Store within a stone's throw. I am often described as a "Nit Picker" so if I say that one of the bedrooms was adequate rather than spacious and that the oven was challenging I am living up to that reputation. I would happily go there again and recommend it. Swanage has a very wide choice of places to eat and seaside attractions. It is also surrounded by beautiful countryside and villages not to forget other very different beaches such as Kimeridge (ledges and rock pools) and Lulworth (sheltered cove); these two also offer fossil hunting.
Ideal for us
Excellent location and accomodation for our large family group at a sensible price. Have already made a provisional booking for next year.
Five minute walk to the shops,railway station and beach.
The house is well equipped and the owner, Jason, is very helpful and nearby to sort any problems.
Lovely spacious house
Great house with loads of space, light airy bedrooms and most importantly lots of bathrooms! Very close to beach and shops, just a short walk with no hills. Would definitely recommend.
Wonderful location for a group of SCUBA divers, great facilities, friendly welcome, wonderfully furnished site, all amenities clean & working as they should.
Room accommodation very flexible for a variety of combinations
Everybody commented on it being a VERY nice place to stay, not only as a dive base but to use a base from which to visit the area.
We will definitely be returning.
Many thanks Lesley & Jason for a really great venue.
