This gorgeous three-storey Edwardian home is located on the road to Durlston Country Park and has spectacular views of local Swanage Bay and the Purbeck Hills.

The property benefits from easy access to Swanage centre with its beautiful town hall, with a facade designed by Christopher Wren. Swanage is a central hub for some of the best Dorset coastal walks to be enjoyed with or without your four-legged friend. With the town centre just 700 yards and Anvil Point Lighthouse on the Swanage coast also close by, there are a wealth of things to do whilst staying here.

Enter the property through the porch with its lovely stained-glass window and then continue through the hall into the sitting room, where the the dual aspect windows make this room light and airy with wonderful sea views. A wealth of entertainment devices are available for lazier days, and there is also a warming wood burner for cooler evenings. Snuggle up with a book, your dog or your loved ones, and enjoy the cosy atmosphere. The dining room and kitchen are equally light and airy, with the kitchen having all of the mod cons you would expect. On the first floor, the property hosts three bedrooms: a master bedroom with en-suite and sea views and a double and twin with hill views; a bathroom with shower over bath can also be found on this floor. On the second floor, there is a twin room with beautiful hill views and wooden floors, just be aware that there is reduced ceiling height in eaves.

Great property that couldn't be faulted. Particularly appreciated the water bowl left ready filled for the dog.

thank you, we were all delighted with the cottage. We have no complaints whatsoever. The cottage was clean, comfortable, cosy. We enjoyed the log burner for this winter retreat. The kitchen was very well equipped, and the toys were very much enjoyed by the younger members of the group. We would gladly return.

Reviewed by Mrs J Bailey 29th August 2018

Wonderful house, extremely well furnished and equiped. Lovely homely feel and tastefully decorated, we really loved it. ideal for families as loads of toys and space to play or friends sharing. The view over swanage is fab, and being up the hill it is nice and quiet but only takes 5 mins to get into swanage, ideal!

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Dorset, a location of enduring popularity is a small rural gem of a county encompassing all of the best parts of rural England: rolling green hills, woodland and hedgerows abundant with flora and fauna running down to the sea yet situated just 3 hours from London and the South East.

The whole coastline from Exmouth to Poole has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Known as the Jurassic Coast, it is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status and offers unspoilt views with dramatic cliff-top walks alongside beautiful, safe, sandy beaches which often welcome your four-legged friends too. From the dramatic natural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland; Dorset has it all.

This South West county is also a treasure trove of secrets waiting to be discovered. Having grown out of the landscape out of the centuries, many of Dorset’s small rural towns expose history at every turn to inform and delight guests, whilst for the more energetic, footpaths and cycle-ways open up to reveal Dorset’s hidden secrets and the coast is always close at hand for those who love the water.

Why not head to Lyme Regis – classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much like most of West Dorset to uncover an old-world ambience and excellent fossil hunting or discover the drama of Lulworth with the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

Dorset’s towns and villages ooze quintessential charm and are graced by fine buildings which have often been immortalised in Thomas Hardy’s books, including Dorchester – his birthplace. Wherever you choose to stay, you are never far from the fascinating Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastal Path.
