Well equipped, fairly comfortable, friendly owners, welcoming
Just returned from a really lovely week at Purbeck Cliffs. Everything was so comfortable and thoughtfully planned out for a very relaxing stay. We particularly loved the beautiful garden, looking out onto it first thing in the morning, relaxing in the loungers watching the birds and wildlife and enjoying evening sun with a drink after a swim in the amazing pool was a real treat ,(the best pool in a holiday home we have ever seen with accessible Roman steps as well as ladder , so important). Lovely welcome bottle of wine and fruit from the owners who were very quiet and discreet above the apartment, but also friendly and helpful. We would love to return to this beautiful apartment in a lovely part of Dorset,thank you for a great holiday!
Excellent . A real home from home with extras
We really could not fault anything. Standard of cleanliness and comfort superb. Situated in lovely quiet surroundings. Having the indoor pool was an extra bonus ( who needs to go abroad ! ). We would have no hesitation in recommending this property.

This very special area has so much to offer: a wealth of attractions to suit all ages as well as sporting and leisure activities A peaceful and relaxing way to see parts of this isle or peninsula, depending on who you talk to, is to take a train ride on the Swanage Railway. You can catch a 6 mile ride between Swanage and Norden where you will get to see the ruins of the historical Corfe Castle. For the more adventurous, another way to see the sights is to take a 47 mile bike ride around the entire area, either splitting the ride up into a winding trek that can last a whole week or by doing a marathon ride that will take a one or two days, but will create long lasting memories. No matter how you choose to visit and travel in this enchanted land, you will not be disappointed by the wealth of things to see and do when you head to the Isle of Purbeck.
