    Swallows Nest was a fabulous place to stay, from the Welcome we received to not wanting to leave. It was spotlessly clean, very comfortable. The views from the back were stunning. It is central to several places such as Poole and Dorchester, with a small grocery shop, butchers, bakers etc not too far away. The gardens were a great size and felt private, and the extras such as swingball, DVD's and games are a nice touch. I even used the binoculars. We would highly recommend this property.

    Absolutely perfect location so much to do and all very close. The cottage was so perfect for us, we were two couples & despite the 2nd room being single beds for children, The owners managed to make a very comfortable double bed. Everything you need is there, even small things you wouldn’t expect. We were also given gifts like Prosecco, eggs, milk & biscuits, a lovely touch! We would highly recommend this cottage & would definitely come back! Thank you!

    Excellent welcome and briefing. Converted barn 2 years old, eco friendly, extremely well appointed. Marshy countryside, variety of birds, tank movements, gunfire and explosions and railway all a little intrusive, but v. Pleasant surroundings and well located for other appealing parts of the coast.

    This is a perfect place for two couples to spend time exploring the area. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The milk, eggs and biscuits were welcome when we arrived. The cottage is beautifully decorated and spacious and each bedroom has an en-suite which is fantastic when you have to get up at night! The log burner was very welcome and we put it to good use seeing as the weather was cold and invariably wet for our stay. There is a very good pub within walking distance and the village has a Chinese takeaway and a general store. I would recommend this holiday home to anyone.

    A lovely cottage in a great location. Close enough to a main road to be convenient, yet far enough away to be peaceful. Great host (Martin) - gave us probably the best and most comprehensive handover we have ever had for a holiday cottage. Cottage itself was spotless, very well equipped - lovely log burner & comfortable beds. Only minor issue was that bathroom was a bit cold at times, having only a towel rail as heating, (but to be fair, this was January & very cold outside). Overall, very nice & comfortable place to stay.

    We enjoyed a very nice four day break in October. The cottage was every bit as nice as advertised and the owners made us very welcome and were on hand if we have any queries. We had a very enjoyable stay.

    We had a very warm welcome from martin and suki. Accomodation very high standard. Although this is a self catering it would be nice for the little things to be provided (kitchen roll, cloth, sponge) if you need to wash up, tea towels were provided which was great. Towels were provide but it would have been nice for one to be a bath sheet and hand towel instead of hand towel and bath towel. More plates,cups and cultry for when you have some in the dishwasher you still have some to use. The gardens front and back have been done very well shame we couldn't use them because of the weather, overall the accomodation was very comfortable and i would love to visit again when the sun shines so i could enjoy the gardens. Would recomended it to friends.
