With a homely ambience and contemporary style, this spacious property is ideally situated for a traditional family holiday in the coastal town of Swanage or touring the Jurassic Coast beyond.

Set in a residential part of the town, this beautiful cottage is less than a mile from the heart of the bustling coastal resort of Swanage, and makes a wonderful holiday home for up to eight guests. Providing welcoming holiday accommodation for larger families and groups of friends, this light and refreshing property is ideal for exploring the gorgeous coastline, quaint villages and spellbinding countryside of the Isle of Purbeck.

A few steps lead up into the cottage, where you will find a light-filled lounge, perfect for relaxing in with a good book or movie on the Smart TV/DVD at the end of a great day.
