    “The flat was great, located very close to the town centre and the facilities were good.”

    However, there were two major things which we found very disappointing. Firstly, the bed is very uncomfortable. Didn't get a single good night's sleep during the week. Secondly, the shower didn't work. Although we found a note in the property informing about the lack of water pressure and instructing us on to hold the shower head low at first and then raising it - no matter how we tried, every time the shower head got above waist level, it went stone cold.

    However, there were two major things which we found very disappointing. Firstly, the bed is very uncomfortable. Didn't get a single good night's sleep during the week. Secondly, the shower didn't work. Although we found a note in the property informing about the lack of water pressure and instructing us on to hold the shower head low at first and then raising it - no matter how we tried, every time the shower head got above waist level, it went stone cold. It seems as if the pump from the immersion tank does not work. Quite frankly, if a property is being let for good money, everything ought to work without having to employ jiggery-pokery. Either the shower works or it doesn't. In our case, it didn't. Not good!

About the location

SWANAGE

Wareham 9.7 miles; Poole 20 miles.

The small, family-friendly seaside resort of Swanage is situated at the eastern end of Dorset’s famous Jurassic Coast, on the celebrated Isle of Purbeck and is probably best known for its wonderful, gently shelving golden sands. The little town offers visitors plenty of shops, good pubs and restaurants, some of which specialise in locally caught seafood, and is also well known for its annual jazz festival, which takes place each July. The attractive, Victorian wooden pier offers a great place for a stroll or try fishing, and often used a departure point for divers, it’s a wonderful place to watch the world pass by. The historic Swanage Railway has its terminus in the town and regular nostalgic steam engine trips take tourists for a picturesque 6-mile journey, chugging through lovely countryside to stop just beyond the romantic ruin of Corfe Castle. Nearby Durlston Country Park offers a lovely day out with spectacular coastal walks, dolphin spotting and wildlife watching, together with comfortable viewing points and a well-stocked cafe for a treat after all the fresh air. Take the short drive to Studland, which has one of the finest beaches in the country, surrounded by heathland, together with the regular chain ferry, which crosses the mouth of Poole Harbour to Sandbanks. This truly is a delightful holiday destination at any time of the year.
