    Ian – 11 Sep 2019
    "We had a thoroughly relaxing holiday at Uncle Bobs . It seemed almost home from home , with very comfortable Beds and sitting room furniture . Everything had been thought of to make the stay as perfect as possible .It was a good location for enjoying the Isle of Purbeck , as well as being in walking distance to the Shop's and Beach at Swanage . We enjoyed the account of Uncle Bob's life , it gave a great insight into the history of the bungalow and the peace within . Sitting in the garden listening to the Steam trains working their way up to Helston Halt brought back very nostalgic memories too ."
