Situated next to the footpath at the bottom of Ballard Down half a mile from Swanage Beach and 3 miles from Studland. No 50 Bus stops outside for Swanage/ Studland/Bournemouth
Dogs by arrangement.
Arriving from Studland chain ferry.(B3351)Take left fork after Studland. We are situated about 200 yds on the left past "Welcome to Swanage" sign. An old cottage opposite the bus stop with a garden swing outside, just before the 30 mph zone.
If arriving thru' Wareham,(A351) either turn left at the bottom of Corfe Castle, signposted to Studland and follow the road approx 3 miles. Take right hand turning sign posted to Swanage continue down hill. Turn right at T junction pass the "Welcome" sign as above.
If coming from Swanage follow the road along the seafront carry on as if going to Studland where the road forks We are opposite the Vets on the right after 30 - 40 mph sign
Good location - lovely to be able to walk straight out onto Ballard Down, and to have easy access to both ridge walking and coast. Accommodation bright and clean, with a gently nautical theme, and friendly, thoughtful hosts. Being welcome to come and go during the day was a bonus. Breakfast is quality: and the chef a mine of useful local information (don't miss the Square and Compass Inn at Worth Matravers...)
Thoroughly recommended - only caveat being that (much) older/less mobile folk might not find enough room to manoeuvre in the room.
Many thanks for a very enjoyable stay.

Angela and Des have a wonderful idyllic and very comfortable self contained room with views of their pretty garden. The room is perfectly appointed with everything that you could possibly need for a wonderful break. An excellent full English breakfast is served in the room on the little dining table. Everything is fresh and tasty including the delicious toast which comes with homemade preserves and a cafetiere of fresh coffee. There is a little fridge in the room that you can use to keep drinks cool and have some fresh milk for the tea and coffee making facilities. The shower room is smart and stylish like the rest of the room, the towels are replaced with fresh ones every day. Angela and Des are so welcoming that it truly feels like we were staying with friends. We can't recommend staying with them more highly if you want a romantic break in one of the best parts of the UK there is.

I experienced a really lovely overnight stay here with my boyfriend, the room was fab, over looking the garden. The owners were friendly and welcoming, we are looking forward to going again in the near future, when we can experience breakfast in the garden.
Huge thanks for a great stay!
