Thanks very much for this lovely review, we hope to see you at the next Swanage Blues Festival in March 2018. We really enjoyed it too, we saw Catfish and they were excellent. All the best, Sarah and Frazer.

A perfect BnB, the bedroom and bathroom were spotlessly clean, with all the hot water and heating we needed. A wide choice and plenty for a relaxed breakfast.It was lovely meeting and chatting to Sarah and Frazier. Will book again next time we visit Swanage.

Lovely room with very comfortable beds, hot and efficient shower, tasty breakfast and good selection of foods, quiet road and just a short walk to the town centre. I have stayed here twice and would recommend Arbour House.

Hi, it’s a short and fairly flat walk into town and beach, about 7 mins into town. The beach is only 300 metres away at the end of our road.
