April Cottage B&B and Lapland Lodge. Situated in Harmans Cross near Swanage and Corfe Castle, the accommodation is central to the Isle of Purbeck, an ideal location from which to explore the many nearby places of interest.
Including, the sandy beaches at Studland and Swanage, Wareham, Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door and the Jurassic Coast (a UNESCO World Heritage Site). Your hosts at April Cottage are Joanna and Peter Burri-Weaver who offer a personalised level of Anglo-Swiss hospitality sure to make any guest feel welcome. In addition, not many guest accommodations can boast an ex-Olympian and 1st SAS descendant for hosts. As well as a great location and a friendly welcome,
our full English breakfast, which comes with every stay, can be taken in the large gardens, weather permitting of course.
Peter & Joanna are professionals of the hospitality industry who have recently managed hotels in exotic places like the Seychelles and Zanzibar. During the winter months they now manage hotels or resorts in the Alps. Two guest rooms are available at April Cottage, a ground floor twin room with private bathroom and a large first floor double en suite, reached by a spiral staircase. The double can accommodate a further bed.
The Lodge, constructed of Arctic Pine and with its unique features, can accommodate 3-4 people or can be hired for a private BBQ. With its rugs and openfire, there is hardly a more romantic place for you to enjoy a cosy evening.
Breakfasts are served in the cottage or in our large garden. During October - May we also serve private Swiss Cheese Fondues or Raclette in our cozy dining room in front of a roaring wood burner.
