“Fab house in great location for Swanage”
Reviewed 13 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

This is a lovely house, which is really well set up, and has great facilities. Lots of space, very comfortable, and cosy - we stayed on a wet weekend in November, and it was very comfortable and warm - lovely log fire too.
The owner, Sian, is very friendly and could not have been more helpful, and communication with her is really easy.
The house is just a few minutes' walk from the beach, and an easy walk into town, so very well placed.

“Well appointed, clean and conveiniently positioned house.”
Reviewed 20 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

5 friends shared this lovely house for a long weekend. The house had everything we needed. There were plenty of single beds, as well as a large double bed. There were three showers and toilets , 2 on suite. The kitchen /dining room was very well equipped with plenty of seating. It was a ten minute stroll into the center of Swanage and there was a very good pub a few yards away at the end of the road. The owner was easy to contact regarding any queries.

“Spacious house in great location”
Reviewed 13 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Three generations of our family have recently returned from a super week at The White House. The house suited our needs perfectly with the two sets of grandparents in the first floor bedrooms - one with ensuite shower and the other having sole access to the family bathroom. The top floor was used by the parents, toddler and baby, with the use of a further ensuite shower room.
The well-equipped kitchen / dining room was the hub of our socialising, but with the cosy sitting room and courtyard garden providing additional living space.
The house is quite simply furnished, which suited our purposes well - the thought of young children possibly ruining sumptuous furnishings is quite daunting!
The location of the house is fantastic; it is in a quiet, residential road just a couple of minutes' walk down a path from the beach and a cafe, and close to a couple of pub / restaurants, with the main centre of Swanage itself a pleasant 15 minute stroll along the seafront.
From the house we enjoyed walks on the coastal path to Studland, returning via the open-top bus (which runs from Swanage and across the Sandbanks ferry to Bournemouth - bus passes accepted!)
Helped by the good fortune of a week of almost constant sunshine, we had a fantastic holiday, and would certainly recommend The White House as a great base for an extended family group.
