Our Accommodation

As the name already suggests our accommodation in the main house is in a very cottage style. On the first floor we have one large, en suite, double room, which is accessible by a spiral stair case. You can sleep under the big Velux window which has fantastic views of the surrounding countryside and a clear view of the stars at night. The room also offers a comfortable, sitting room area, with a large selection of old books.

The power shower, with its handmade French tiles, has been added recently and the double room can be fitted with an extra bed. The twin room, with private bathroom (bath and shower), is situated on the ground floor with views on to the garden and the lodge. The private bathroom is opposite the bedroom and is for twin room guests' private use only.

Our Lapland Lodge offers unique accommodation for up to 3 – 4 guests. We have provided sleeping bags with silk liners which lie on top of cushions and reindeer skins. Guests have a separate and adjoining cabin with a Belfast sink (hot and cold water) and toilet. Just outside there is a 300 year old pine tree where you may experience the sounds of the owls and other visiting birds. The many candles and the fairy light make a stay at the lodge an unforgettable cosy experience.

The decked platform of the lodge is the ideal place to have your sun downers or late night drinks, certainly one of the most romantic settings one can imagine. All rooms offer tea and coffee facilities, hair dryers and free WIFI (cottage rooms only). Breakfast for all guests is being served in our gardens or the breakfast room in the Cottage (no breakfast served in the Lodge). Booked BBQ's are taken in the Lodge or on its platform.

 A mobile outside grill is also available to all our guests who may enjoy a private BBQ in our lovely garden. During the colder season we also offer Swiss cheese fondue or raclette evenings (pre-booking essential).

Testimonials

We stayed two nights in the Lapland Lodge in the garden of April Cottage. No words can reasonably describe this stunning garden and waking up right in it. The lodge is fun, quirky and beautifully kitted out with lots of really thoughtful extras. Fairy lights and candles and surrounded by the reindeer skin covers really make this a unique and magical experience.

Hospitality at its very best
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the beautiful April Cottage & Lapland Lodge.

Joey & Peter are superb hosts and looked after us extremely well. Breakfast was fantastic, exquisitely presented and it was very refreshing to be served fresh, local and seasonal produce and not the usual baked beans and hash brown English breakfast combo. We were blessed with fabulous weather for our stay which meant that we got to eat breakfast in the amazing garden each day. It was just perfect!!!

The accommodation is clean and comfortable in idyllic surroundings. The outside of April Cottage is picture postcard perfect and the gardens like something out of a magazine. Inside, the beds were extremely comfortable and there is everything you need in the bedrooms for an enjoyable stay. (I particularly loved the little touches like fresh flowers in the room and chocolates on the pillow!)

Peter and Joanna are wonderful hosts - genuine, helpful and meticulous. April cottage is quaint and charming, with a picturesque garden and in the most an ideal location; practically equidistant from both Studland Beach/Swanage and West Lulworth meaning there is lots to see right on your doorstep. The breakfast Peter made us was delicious and perfectly presented - a real treat that we definitely looked forward to each morning! Peter is extremely welcoming and provides great advice and suggestions for nearby areas and restaurants to visit. We highly recommend and hope to visit again one day!

We stayed 3 nights at the cottage and we had a wonderful experience. The most remarkable thing is the hospitality and kindness of the 2 owners, Peter and Joanna. Peter prepared for us delicious breakfasts in the mornings and, once for dinner, an amazing Swiss cheese fondue. Peter was attentive and caring about his customers and made us feel really welcome. The cottage itself is lovely, well maintained, clean and cozy. The beds were astonishing, extremely comfortable and difficult to leave in the morning! I would recommend April Cottage to anybody who wants to have a stress-free, warm and comfortable experience!! Thank you, Peter and Joanna!!
