This Victorian villa is ideally situated for exploring the traditional town of Swanage and the Jurassic Coast. The property has a homely ambience and is great base for a family holiday.

Set within the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this coastal cottage comfortably sleeps six guests across three stylish bedrooms. It’s made for holiday getaways to the popular coastal town of Swanage in East Dorset with its sandy beach made for bucket-and-spade fun, and crabbing on the historic pier; and you have the convenience of shops, pubs, and eateries within half a mile, and roadside parking at the front of the property. The magnificent Studland Bay (3.5 miles) is in reach, and you had hop on ferries there for further adventures in Bournemouth and Poole

 

Head up the path and step inside this charming end-of-terrace Victorian family home. Kick back after a busy day of shopping and exploring in the living room, and catch up on sport on the Smart TV. Cook up a storm in the small though well-equipped kitchen and feast in the dining room. A great night’s sleep awaits in the cosy bedrooms, a magnificent king-size bedroom with a huge bay window and an enviable vanity/dressing area, plus a double bedroom with garden views on the first floor; bunk bedroom and a twin with characterful sloping ceilings on the second. And dine alfresco in the sunny enclosed courtyard garden.

 

Enjoy traditional seaside fun in Swanage from family-friendly amusement arcades and crazy golf to walks on the promenade. Hop on the Swanage Railway (0.5 miles) which steams towards the Isle of Purbeck and Corfe Castle where you can explore the village and castle ruins which inspired author Enid Blyton in the Famous Five books. You can even hike the Purbeck Hills (8.5 miles). Another Blyton favourite is Brownsea Island, a wildlife sanctuary abundant with curious red squirrels. Or discover Durlston Country Park (1.5 miles), the perfect place to learn about conservation and take a leafy walk surrounded by nature.

Nice and comfortable house., close to town and beach. Would be good to have an extra toilet for the number of bedrooms. Our biggest problem was the parking. We had two cars and it was difficult to find on road parking spaces.

We had a family holiday 6 adults, 3 babies under 3 and 2 dogs. Well equipped cottage for adults and children. Outside parking limited but very easy to unload and park cars in car parks 3.20 for the weekend. Town centre and sea front easy walking distance. Boys loved the steam trains and building sandcastles.

A lovely comfortable cottage and only 10 minutes walk from the beach, what could be better. Everything we needed was there. We had a great stay. Perfect for anyone with dogs particularly outside of the May to September dog beach ban. There are loads of places within easy reach so lots to do without lots of driving.
