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.

    What an amazing find! Lots of room and all bedrooms are ensuite. Fully stocked kitchen and everything you could need for a party to stay. The dining room is down a flight of stairs and what a gem - lovely big table, a couple of fridges and some smaller rounder tables. Huge lounge with plenty of sofas to sit on and a dining table and chairs we used for our breakfast buffet. Lovely gardens and great table and chairs outside. Would definitely recommend this house. Just to note that although you do get towels and the beds are uber comfy - remember to take soap as there was none in the bathrooms. Thank you Guy, amazing property and one we will definitely use again.

    Great property for a larger group, good sized living area, simple furnishings, good open fire, plenty of parking. Ideal location for walkers, bikers, or just people who love good pubs and live music.

    Lots of room for 9 adults and 5 children. Loved the at Aga never used one before. Lots of walks without taking the car out,dancing ledge, dinosaur footprints,and pubs etc. Visited some of the nearby places Studland for a swim and Kimmeridge crabs and fossils. Plenty more to come back for. Big garden for hide and seek and sun bathing for Bruno. Highly recommend.

    Very large property and huge garden excellent for family workouts. Some of the furniture is a bit dated. Bedrooms comfortable and en suite bathroom in all 7 bedrooms a bonus.

    There are 7 decent double bedrooms with ensuite, small desk and TV. They are comfortable and light. Downstairs the kitchen is very well equipped with all the utensils, crockery and cookware you could need. We used the electric cooker rather than the Aga or the microwave/grill. The sitting room has several large sofas and a long table that will seat 6-8 at a push. It is more pleasant than the dining room which is in a sort of basement and is a bit cold and miserable, though with more seating at the table. Also has 2 fridges in addition to the two fridges and a freezer in the kitchen, which is very useful. Lovely big garden with distant view of Isle of Wight. Front space can take 5 cars. Good walking round about, but car needed for shops or pubs. Coop in Swanage is reasonable supermarket and we had a great meal at the Greyhound in Corfe Castle. Monkey World is about 30 mins away, wonderful day there, and the Swanage steam railway is fun too. Bear in mind the price advertised doesn't include central heating or electricity. We thought we could get away without the heating, but the sitting room is very cold in the evenings. Given the overall cost of the cottage, these extras just seem penny pinching and inconvenient. In the end we weren't charged the full rate, but we've rented cottages a lot over the years and never had those surcharges anywhere else. Overall, though, a pleasant place to stay for a large group in beautiful surroundings and an enjoyable part of the country.
