    We had a thoroughly relaxing holiday at Uncle Bobs . It seemed almost home from home , with very comfortable Beds and sitting room furniture . Everything had been thought of to make the stay as perfect as possible . It was a good location for enjoying the Isle of Purbeck , as well as being in walking distance to the Shop's and Beach at Swanage . We enjoyed the account of Uncle Bob's life , it gave a great insight into the history of the bungalow and the peace within . Sitting in the garden listening to the Steam trains working their way up to Helston Halt brought back very nostalgic memories too .

    Uncle Bob's was a lovely place to stay. Was very clean and had everything that you could want. It was an approximate 15min walk to the centre of Swanage. Great base to explore Dorset. We would definately stay again.

    Really sweet bungalow. Tastefully furnished to high standard and very homely. Beautiful garden with ample sun and shade. Quiet and peaceful for a lovely relaxing stay. 10 minute walk to seafront.

    Lovely holiday cottage done to a very high standard. Garden with lots of comfortable seats to sit out.



    out of 10

    Cosy modern bungalow with a nice garden for sitting in and relaxing. A short walk to the town centre and beach which was handy as we didn't need to use the car. Had everything there we needed for our weekend break and we were blessed with great weather . Would definitely stay again if going Swanage.
