"The property is more or less in the town centre very steep and hilly which in not a problemIf you have your own transport, you can see the bay from from outside decking area but The weekend we stayed there the weather didn't do it justice dull and wet most of the time and not much of a clear view , one bedroom the under floor heating system didn't seem to work at all when needed and bed clothes off another bed was needed so it could be occupied, the bed room I occupied didn't seem to keep it to a comfortable level either , if the dishwasher was in use at the same time as preparing vegetables in the sink near by we had the problem of dirty water From the the dishwasher coming back up through the waste pipes in to the sink, I must say the property looked spotless, until my daughter who has twin boys notice that the very nice high chair supplied by the owners and available to use didn't look so nice when she noticed that on the high chair seat was and old chocolate looking biscuite and believe it or not , it had blue mold on it apart from these few niggle things it could be a very nice place"

"The house is spacious and has a nice view of the bay from the terrace. Generally the house is lovely for a family holiday but was badly let down by poor cleanliness. Examples include the small bedroom mattress that been previously soiled and smelled awful, the tiled floors had been mopped but when walked on upon arrival our socks bottoms were filthy. Some plates had mould growing on them. We spent a lot of effort in addressing some of the failings. A thorough check and clean/replacement by the management would make the house A1 again.Swanage town and the Purbeck area are charming and generally unspoilt. The easy access to Poole and Bournemouth is also a bonus. Corfe Castle village and castle are tourist hotspots, but still provide a nice day out. The steam railway was an excellent to relive bygone days and appreciate the Purbeck scenery as well as easy access to Corfe Castle.The steep hill from town to the property was a bit of a challenge, certainly after a long day out or if one made several journeys to and from town."

"Lovely house which, with a few inexpensive tweaks could be exceptional. On arrival (Friday) the loo in en suite would not flush and a plumber could not attend until late on Monday afternoon. Ok there were two other loos but we had paid for the use of three, one of which was out of use for almost half of our stay. The plumber made a temporary repair as he didn't have the necessary spare part and also very kindly sorted the shower trap which had not been emptied in a long while. Point about loo is shouldn't the cleaner have noticed?! The light in the upstairs loo didn't work and the top bunk bed apparently was extremely uncomfortable. Most of the above points have been made in previous reviews but I suppose the fact that the house is for sale says it all and explains the lack of tlc. Raine, the caretaker was very pleasant but I get the impression the owners have lost interest in this beautiful house."

"We had an very nice stay at the Old Forge.There were a couple of minor maintenance issues (broken oven door handle, several blown bulbs and a non functional radiator in the main bedroom). The two bedrooms that adjoin the road next to the pub are not well insulated from the cold or sound so we found it nippy at night (we stayed in late October) and woke a few times around midnight as people left the pub.However, with the log fire lit, the house was very cosy and it was a great base for exploring the area. We visited Charmouth, Abbotsbury, Weymouth, Portland, Dorchester, Lulworth, Corfe, Studland and Swanage without much trouble or traffic problems.There are plenty of nice walks from the property and we never had a problem with parking. Overall, we were happy with our choice to stay here and would probably stay again. A few little issues, but good value for money."

"This house and the one next door are fantastic luxury family holiday homes if you are looking to stay in Swanage. I have stayed in both on several occasions. My family calls them ’Upsidedown House’ due to the bedrooms being downstairs and the living areas on the first floor with the amazing view over the bay. The house is very well equipped and spacious and it has always been immaculately clean when I have been there. The upstairs deck with the fantastic view is a real highlight as is the full size table tennis and table football tables in the garage/games room (useful when the weather isn’t so great). It’s a 3 minute walk into Swanage town and a few minutes more to the beach, although the walk back up the steep hill is a bit more effort. Overall this is a brilliant place to stay in Swanage, you won’t be disappointed. March 2012."
