An ideal bolthole for two, this charming loft-style studio apartment is a great choice for those wishing to explore all that the beautiful Isle of Purbeck has to offer before relaxing in comfort.

Immerse yourselves in the natural beauty of the Isle of Purbeck when you stay at this loft-style hideaway in Swanage. Sleeping two guests, the welcoming, one-bedroom, studio apartment is just 350 metres from the beach and about 1 mile from the centre of the Dorset seaside town. Pick up the South West Coast Path from here and head out for long walks across nearby, spectacular Ballard Down.

Let yourselves into your apartment, which is next to the owner’s home but enjoys its privacy, via your own gate and then front door. From the lobby, climb up the narrow stairs to discover airy accommodation, which has been creatively designed to offer you ample space and comfort. Exposed brick and woodwork add character and there is a Juliet balcony offering a glimpse of the sea. Relax on the sofa together in front of the TV, take three steps up to the kitchen area to prepare romantic meals in and dine together at the table. Have a hot bath in the bathroom then enjoy a good night’s sleep in the double bed, which nestles in a cosy position within the eaves but does have some restricted head height and a floor level beam next to it. Have breakfast out in the warmth of the courtyard during the summer and keep your bikes out here too. There is parking for one car with the apartment.

Spend time in Swanage, pottering in the shops and finding places to eat out. Enjoy swimming from the town’s beach, where you can also go water-skiing and wind surfing. Walk 1.5 miles out to Peveril Point for stunning views out along the coastline. Make trips out into the countryside of the Isle of Purbeck, spending time at Ballard Down, 1 mile away, or Durlston Country Park, 2 miles away.

Arnewood is just perfect for couples. Lovely quiet part of Swanage. Apartment has been very cleverly designed to use the space available to make a very stylish home from home. Kitchen is well equipped. Bed extremely comfortable. Excellent over bath shower with lots of pressure. Off road parking. We definitely will be staying there again.

The apartment was well equipped,all of which was good quality. It was spotless clean and tidy, furniture and bedding were extremely comfortable. The apartment was ideally situated to reach the town and sea front. A nice touch that two cycles with helmets were also provided for your use. A lovely apartment and value for money.

Comfortable and very conveniently located. Short walk to beach and town for shops and public transport. Many lovely walks from the apartment e.g train to Corfe and walk back, Studland and back, Dancing Ledge and back and several much shorter. We wish we could have stayed longer but had childminding duties back home. We will definitely be back.

Not a cottage of course but a small loft apartment. Very tastefully presented in a seaside style and although small had just about everything needed. The kitchen space is tight and if cooking you need to be organised as limited work surfaces. The bed is a double not king. Location is good only a few minutes walk to the sea and close to the local BrRead moreeezer bus stops and a pub. Allocated parking on the drive is a great plus. Hide

Arnewood is in a good location for walking to the beach and Swanage town centre. There is plenty to do and see both in Swanage and a short drive away. The owners are very easy to contact if needed, and the apartment is well planned and cosy, with a car parking space at the property. Alison and Haydn provided plenty of information about using equipmRead moreent in the apartment. They also provided contact details for important services, in case guests need medical care, for example. We enjoyed our stay. Hide
