Fabulous holiday home in a brilliant location for the whole family whatever age,10 out of 10!
Our first family staycation in a long time to an amazing part of the British Isles did not disappoint. Firstly Leap House Is perfectly situated in Wareham a couple of winding lanes off the centre of this beautiful little town and its pretty river. There is ample street parking in the area but having your very own private parking space outside the property is very handy. The property has been furnished to a very high standard, the kitchen is equipped with everything you would expect in your own home and the whole property was spotlessly clean. Attention to detail was exceptional. Comfortable beds with fluffy pillows and duvets and crisp white linen and towels added to the property's luxurious feel. Pre arrival we received a very useful information pack with suggested places to visit without having to travel miles, and suggestions for eating out in and around Wareham. The Italian bakery was a particular favourite of ours and we would recommend trying their takeaway pizza and pasta one evening. Fabulous holiday home in a brilliant location for the whole family whatever age. 10 out of 10!

Very nearly perfect
Very well situated house in Wareham centre, walks from the door into the surrounding countryside and all local amenities in the town plus regular bus services and a train station. Comfortable and clean cottage with *most mod cons and dedicated off road parking for one car at the back of the house (parking on the street in front of the property is often possible depending on time of day and how busy the town is) * it would be really great if there was a washing machine in the property/garage although there is a Laundrette in the town.

A splendid home from home
Very easy to get to, well situated for the local town, full of shops, pubs and markets. Nice views, well appointed spacious rooms, with seemingly everything you might need for your holiday. Reliable hourly bus service to Swanage and Pool as well as being a short walk from a busy rail station. The town is also full of lovely places to walk and historic Saxon features. The locals are all friendly too.
