Wonderful place - loved the balcony. The perfect location to celebrate my 30th Birthday. Right in the centre of town - can't wait to come back again!!!

As always The Ketch & Swanage have delivered a great week. The perfect seaside holiday and plenty to do out & about. Sun, sea, sand, steam trains and Folk Festival. Could'nt be better!!

What a lovely little house! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, very comfortable everything we needed. Everything within easy reach. Took the steam train, visited Corfe Castle, Studland and everything in Swanage too. The local deli and and bakery did delicious food. Totally recommend 'The 1859 pier Cafe' and bistro for a good place to dine out, delicious seafood/fish or burgers if you wish!

Why has it taken over 100 stays in Swanage to find this little gem? Homely, beautifully appointed and prime location. As usual we have had good weather, but due to covid not been out as much in the evenings for meals. Thanks for a lovely stay, hope to come back next year. COVID-19 can ban the Folk Festival but it can't spoil a stay in Swanage. A beautiful week of Sun, days on the beach and cafe lunches and plenty of fun for the whole family. See you again next year.

This is our 2nd stay at the Ketch and we'd like to do it again next year - need we say more.

We really loved The Ketch, the only negative for us (being of a certain age) was getting in to the property for people who are not too good with steps. Everything else about the property was very good. *In answer to the above suggestion, the owners of The Ketch have since put in a hand rail specifically to help those less able with access to the property, thus making a great improvement.*

Lovely property, brilliant location, would highly recommend, would love to come back asap.

We love staying at The Ketch. Central and sea view but also quiet. The refurbishments are great, especially the kitchen. As always, it is extremely well kitted out, and having the garage to put all our beach stuff etc., in is very convenient. Also, when there was a problem with the shower, it was fixed the same day as reported.
