    This holiday cottage is overpriced for what it has got to offer. We appreciate it is over 300 years old but it could do with a deep clean and an update! The pillows in the master bedroom were well passed their "use by date" and the sofas in the lounge had all sunk from over use. My husband went round all the rooms removing the cobwebs from the walls and ceilings! We would not recommend this cottage to other guests and will not be returning.

    Swiss Cottage is a well equipped holiday cottage with a large living room, well equipped kitchen and good sized bedrooms. The outside space is small but there is a nice sun room and a garden room. It is old so the floors upstairs are sloping and a bit creaky in places but this adds to the character. It is well placed for the two village pubs and the convenience store. It is well placed for exploring this part of Dorset, but apart from the walk to Seatown on the coast you should expect to use your car for most days out.

    Our second visit to Swiss Cottage and it hadn’t changed a bit! Comfortable stay in a roomy, well positioned cottage. The village has lovely places to eat and drink and the beach is only a short walk away. Convenient location in which to explore the local area. Unfortunately cleanliness not quite as good as last time. The downstairs bathroom, as someone commented before had a horrid smell to it. We live in an old property and appreciate the quirks and character of an older house but feel the cottage could do with a little TLC. It was a good base for a lovely holiday though.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Good to know that you had a lovely holiday at Swiss Cottage, which is in a great location and the beach is only a short walk away. I have had the drains to the downstairs shower room thoroughly flushed through. Swiss Cottage is a roomy cottage, which benefits from a ground floor bedroom and ground floor shower room.

    Swiss Cottage is a beautiful cottage in a fantastic location, we have stayed here several times although very disappointed with the cleanliness in different parts of the cottage this visit.High chair was very poor cleanliness, food down the inside of highchair, and the downstairs toilet smelt of urine (so may be a leak)! to point out a couple as Icould go on as there were others areas, including the bedding ... Please note the washing machine opens whilst spinning! Sorry to provide negative feedback, but if Cottages.Com is not aware how can the cottage improve?

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for informing me about the washer dryer. I tried it on various washing cycles with no problems. However I then discovered that the door could be opened mid cycle as the safety catch had failed. A new washer dryer is on order and will be installed ASAP. Apologies re the highchair, which is cleaned when it is put away. There is no problem with the toilet. Actually the vast majority of the twenty one sets of linen have been recently replaced. Swiss Cottage is a beautiful Grade 2 listed cottage in a fantastic location within walking distance to the beach, Golden Cap, which forms part of the Jurassic Coast, and village pubs. There are lots of things to see and do and good local amenities nearby.

    Wonderful cottage in a very pretty location but a very busy road, didn’t really interfere with our holiday though and everything we needed in the cottages kitchen.
