Welcome Cottages

A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


Each of the 7 bedrooms boasts en-suite bathroom facilities, a colour television, radio and telephone, making it ideal for large family groups holidaying together.

In a conservation area just a mile from the cliffs and sea at Dancing Ledge, this attractive and very well-equipped stone house enjoys superb views across the countryside towards Swanage Bay. Set with its own garden on the edge of the small hamlet of Acton, it has been completely renovated to a good standard throughout, and includes an extension at the rear (part of which is the owners’ accommodation). Each bedroom boasts en-suite bathroom facilities, a colour television, radio and telephone, making it ideal for large family groups holidaying together. Swanage (2½ miles) has a lovely sandy beach, and offers a wide variety of attractions, including shops, inns and restaurants, a theatre, and facilities for tennis and swimming. There are steam trains to the little town of Corfe Castle, and odd pieces of architecture brought from London, including the Wellington Tower on the beach, which once stood near London Bridge. The unspoilt village of Studland (4 miles) has another excellent beach (NT) and is close to woods and downs. North of the village is Studland Heath National Nature Reserve, home to a variety of wildlife ranging from wildfowl to lizards. A ferry runs from Studland across the bay to Sandbanks, from where the bay stretches on to Bournemouth. Excellent walking can be found in this area, with the coastal path running nearby along the cliffs, and the hills at Nine Barrow Down within easy reach. Riding stables at Wareham, 8 miles. Golf 4 miles. Poole and Bournemouth, both 20 miles. Shops ½ mile, three inns within a mile.

    Fernlea is a lovely place to stay in a great location. The bedrooms were great, evenly sized, each one with an on suite. I think a few more things could be more thoughtfully done for comfort that I am used to from other holiday cottages, like teabags and milk on arrival, a few logs/matches by the fire. And a working DVD player. But overall a great place to stay with a big group.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Ensuite bathrooms to all rooms were great for our family and the house was very comfortable with a pleasant secure garden. It was generally clean but things like cupboards were rather dusty. There was a lot of kitchen equipment, so much that it took a while to find what we wanted. Having said that, cooking was a pleasure. We tried cooking on the Aga but needed to use the cooker if we wanted a meal that day! The decor may be a bit tired (and loads of rugs a trip hazard) but with young children and a dog we felt very at ease. A shelf and towel rails in bathrooms would be helpful. We would definitely consider staying at Fernlea again but would ask the owner how to use the Aga more efficiently as £45 for fuel for a weekend was a lot. However, we were lovely and toasty on a chilly weekend.

    We had a wonderful time at this cottage, it catered for 13 of us very well, as I had spent many a holiday in this area when I was younger it bought back very happy memories. I would definitely return and recommend it to others.

    The house is in a stunning location, ideally situated for walking the coast path and with easy access to Swanage. It's spacious, comfortable and very well equipped. We had a fabulous holiday.

    Our family party of fourteen had a great week. We particularly enjoyed the pasties at the pub in Worth Matravers after our walk.

    It suited our group and enjoyed the house. I disapproved about having to pay for the electricity used .
