Description from owner


Tucked away in a quiet position in the heart of Swanage, on the beautiful Isle of Purbeck, Taunton Cottage is perfectly situated only a two minute walk away from the safe, award-winning sandy beach, shops, cafés, pubs and restaurants. Built of Purbeck stone, the cottage is cosy, homely and full of character. It dates back to the18th Century and is set over three floors. The first floor has two bedrooms, one with a King size bed the other with bunk beds. The first floor bathroom has a bath with hand held shower. The second floor bedroom has a King size bed, a seating and a dressing area and a bathroom which has a large walk in-monsoon shower. The cottage is Wifi connected. It has a small outside seating area and also its own parking space (quite a rare find in Swanage).

Loved by all who visit, the pretty Victorian town of Swanage has something for everyone. From families with children to couples who want to escape for a long weekend. If you are not watching Punch and Judy on the Blue Flag beach or crabbing from the Old Stone Quay, you can stroll to Durlston Country Park where you may get a glimpse of dolphins. You can also ride the Steam Train to Corfe Castle, stop off for a cream tea or visit one of the small local art galleries. From the cottage it is also easy to join in the fun of one of the town's events that take place throughout the year. These include the Carnival and Regatta Week (end of July), the Blues Festival (March and October), the Jazz Festival (July) and the Folk Festival (September).

Very Good

“Well-equipped, good location and comfortable property near the beach”

Reviewed 15 Nov 2018

We stayed at Taunton Cottage for ten days in November. The property was very well equipped with everything we needed to enjoy our stay, nice and quiet and very well located close to the seafront, shops, pubs etc. The cottage has a parking space available which was handy. Comfortable lounge, luxurious walk-in shower, and a separate bathroom with a bathtub which was useful for bathing the little ones. Decent, well-equipped kitchen area. Would definitely stay again if visiting Swanage.

Response from the owner Thank you for a lovely review and we would love to welcome you back one day, regards Debbie.

“Lovely cottage in heart of Swanage”

Reviewed 14 Nov 2017

We recently spent four nights at Taunton Cottage and were really impressed with the accommodation. The cottage is lovely, and very spacious for two. It's in a fantastic location, with all local amenities within easy walking distance. We would definitely return.

“Fabulous home from home”

Reviewed 21 Oct 2017

What a find this cottage was . Close to town so walkable to shops, beach, lots of pubs. Right next to black swan where the food was gorgeous . We did wonder if there would be any noise from pub but never heard anything all week. The house itself is very tastefully decorated which puts it above & beyond the normal let. It is more like a home from home stay than a holiday let. So many little details that make it. There is nothing we could have needed that was not provided. Would definitely like to stay again if we visited that area again.

“Best self-catering accommodation I have found in Swanage in last 3 years”

Reviewed 9 Sep 2017

Very clean and well equipped. The information provided by Debbie was great. I was concerned when I arrived that there might be a problem as my 90 year old mother needed the en-suite room, because she could not cope with getting in the lovely bath on the 1st floor. We had a lovely holiday despite the weather not being too kind.

“Awesome holiday”

Cottage is amazing and clean ... love it and set up is brilliant... boys and parents have fallen in love with the cottage

“Taunton Cottage a great location”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2017

We had a lovely week's stay at this impressive cottage which is equipped with everything you could need for a family holiday. My 12 year old was especially impressed with her own floor of the house (as it has a loft conversion) with her own en suite shower! The WIFI is really good which is also a must with children. I enjoyed some lovely down time in the very comfy rooms. The house is a stone's throw from the town which offers lots to do for a family week away. We were made to feel very welcome by the owners and nothing was too much trouble. We were only sad that we had to leave! I would also commend the décor of the house which was well thought out and everything matched perfectly. I would highly recommend this house to parents with older children as it provides enough space for everyone to be happy. It also has it's own car parking space which is very rare for a house in Swanage and makes packing and unpacking the car quick and painless. Once we were parked, we didn't feel the need to use the car as everything is walkable but it's great to know that it's just there should you need to go out. Finally, top marks for cleanliness. Super clean linen and bathrooms and lovely finishing touches. Thanks for a wonderful holiday.

“Cottage and location spot on!!”

Reviewed 2 Sep 2016

Me and my family spent the last week of the summer holidays at Taunton cottage. The location is perfect nestled up a quiet side street with your own gated entrance. Literally 1 minute walk and you are at the heart of swanage right by the sea. The cottage was very comfortable. Bunk beds for my boys were a real plus!! Smart TVs and great wifi!! Knowing you had your own car park space at the end of the day was great. The adjoining Taunton house were very friendly and we heard no noise. All in all a very well presented cottage in a great location.
