    “The owners were friendly and helpful.”

    We had a very enjoyable stay helped by good weather. The property is very spacious for 2 of us and well appointed. We particularly appreciated the electric charger for our car and the Sky Q for the TV. Suggestions for improvement are: — The sofa and the chair nearer the main door in the main room aren’t very comfortable . — The outside private area was rather disappointing/ but could be improved with a little work e.g. pruning the vegetation , pressure washing of the paving and ...

    We had a very enjoyable stay helped by good weather. The property is very spacious for 2 of us and well appointed. We particularly appreciated the electric charger for our car and the Sky Q for the TV. Suggestions for improvement are: — The sofa and the chair nearer the main door in the main room aren’t very comfortable . — The outside private area was rather disappointing/ but could be improved with a little work e.g. pruning the vegetation , pressure washing of the paving and providing ,a couple of deck chairs. — ( General point for Sykes cottages detailed descriptions ). Like a significant number of retired guests I have a pacemaker . I can’t go close to an induction hob . It would be useful in the property details to specify if electric hobs are induction rather than coil or radiant , which look the same .

About the location

WAREHAM

Corfe Castle 5 miles; Poole 9 miles; Swanage 11 miles;

Wareham, affectionately known as the ‘Gateway to the Purbecks’ is an ancient Dorset waterside market town. Situated between the River Frome and quaintly named River Piddle, its charming riverside location makes the town a popular holiday destination. Dating back to Saxon times, the town was once surrounded by walls, and became an important port with boats bringing supplies up the River Frome from nearby Poole harbour. Today, the river provides a great playground, you can hire a boat from the attractive quayside and chug your way down the stream, take one of the regular organised boat trips, browse the colourful Saturday market or simply just enjoy an ice cream or a drink relaxing on the Quayside. Whilst seasonally there are also numerous popular events taking place beside the river. A short drive takes you to the Arne peninsula jutting out into Poole Harbour, a designated RSPB reserve, where you can stroll down to the water’s edge, taking in glimpses of the impressive bird population and often viewing some of the resident deer. The friendly seaside resort of Swanage is also easily accessible, where you can experience a traditional family-friendly day out on the beach, or take the coastal path and stop off for refreshment at Durlston Country Park. A real treat is to drive to nearby Corfe Castle and take the vintage steam railway to Swanage. Wareham offers visitors a super Dorset holiday destination at anytime of the year.

Note: This property only accepts children under 3's and over 12's due to the large pond on site.
