‘Beautiful house. There were 13 of us for a long weekend. House has every facility you could need. Lovely garden with view of the sea and the Isle of Wight. Great location. We left the cars parked at the house and caught the bus from the end of the lane to get around. Very close to Swanage and some excellent countryside pubs with amazing views. Owner very helpful’

‘Fernlea was our base for a group of friends annual gathering to walk, catch up, eat and relax. It was very well equipped with excellent kitchen facilities and each member of the group was able to have their own room and bathroom. Lots of coastal walks directly from the house allowed us to park up on Friday afternoon and not get back into a car until we left. When the weather allowed views were excellent. Would thoroughly recommend for families and groups. Nearest shops and pubs are a mile or two away so make sure you bring everything you need with you. It really was a fabulous way to spend a weekend and we all agree we would happily use again for our meet ups.’

‘Excellent property for a large group and exceptional for all 7 bedrooms to be en-suite. House well equipped, comfortable and in a great location for exploring the Jurassic Coast. Couple of “even better ifs” would be more reliable and effective WiFI (barely worked for us) and why not just. include heating and electricity costs within the rental rather than additional fees on arrival and departure that creates a bit of a negative feeling.’

‘Overall we enjoyed our stay. There were 3 couples, two teenage boys and two, 2 year olds girls. Because of our numbers we had plenty of bedrooms. However, the three couples in our party all thought their double bedroom was tiny, with the smallest sized double bed. Too many bedrooms had been crammed into the first floor and the bedroom generally were small. The kitchen was very well, even overly equipped in some ways, except there were a few items missing - mixer, whisk in particular. Also we could not find a mop to clean the tiled floor, so any slight spillage was a chore. Although superficially clean, we found cobwebs behind furniture and even up in the corner of rooms. The windows outside were extremely dirty and many were difficult to open. Because of our numbers we were able to eat on the 8 seater table on the ground floor, though this is at the other end of the house from the kitchen. Had we had to use the dining table down in the basement, in a somewhat foreboding environment, it would have been very inconvenient. Up and down stairs with large pots of food, crockery, cutlery etc would have been a challenge. There were some fittings that looked a bit tired - bath panels and around some of the en suite sinks and particularly irksome was the left hand glass door on the dresser in the kitchen, which caught on the horizontal surface beneath it every time it was opened. The location is good with lots of interest within short walks or drives and nice beaches for sunny days. I do think however that 14 people in the place would be somewhat cramped.

‘What a beautiful house to celebrate a 50th bday! The house was great with lots of space. Having more twin rooms rather than doubles all with en-suite was the best. The kitchen was very well equipped and cooking in the aga was great. Beautiful well kept garden and lovely to have a big table outside where we were able to sit and eat outside. Fantastic location for walks from the village out to Coastal path. The only negative was the fact that the dining room was downstairs so you had to carry food down a flight of steps and it was quite musty down there. But luckily for us the weather was superb so we only ate dinner down there on Friday night and ate outside at the table for rest of the weekend! Also one of the twin rooms at top had a bathroom issue with the wet carpet outside the bathroom door on arrival. All in all one of the best houses we have stayed at over the last 15 years as a large group of girls and would definitely book here again?’

‘A great place for a relaxing holiday with a large group of people. There were seven of us on a photographic holiday in beautiful Dorset. The property is not within walking disance of a shop or a pub but it is with sea views from the 2nd floor bedrooms. It also has ample parking, good wifi and is well provided with about everything that you need. the owner is friendly and helpful.’

‘This was an excellent property to rent for a big family party. There was lots of space both indoors and outdoors. We were lucky as the weather was fantastic for our long weekend so we ate outdoors. We were glad not to have to carry food to the big eating area downstairs. There was an extraordinary array of kitchen equipment but otherwise you needed to bring everything except salt and pepper! The children loved running around in the garden. We took swing ball which was popular’
