This homely converted quarryman's cottage is located overlooking Swanage's high street and the stunning countryside that heads towards the Dorset coast. The two-bedroom property is just 1 mile away from the beach and is the perfect destination for a quiet weekend or short break.
Just 1 mile from the beach at Swanage is this 18th-century quarryman’s cottage. Having been previously owned by one of the Punch and Judy show team (originating in Swanage in 1880) It has been named accordingly. Set over three floors, the building retains many original features inside, from ceiling beams to exposed Dorset stone, and offers three fantastic al fresco dining areas, a decked raised area, a secluded dining area in the garden itself and sheltered veranda in front of the summer house. Swanage is famous for its sweeping stretch of golden sand, safe swimming and wide choice of shops, eateries and amusements, perfect for family holidays.
A charming sitting room welcomes you into this characterful home with its beam-lined ceiling, exposed stone walls, electric wood burner, inviting sofa and TV. With an additional lounge on the first floor, complete with a TV and bi-fold doors to the decked area, there is plenty of space for both generations to relax and unwind. Prepare and enjoy delicious meals in the modern kitchen/diner before slipping into the luxurious roll-top bath in the bathroom next door. Or, in warmer weather, spend the evening dining alfresco in the decked garden. There is public parking in a layby nearby.
This property sits just 1 mile from Swanage town centre, with its array of shops, cafes, restaurants and galleries and stunning sandy beach. Spend your days relaxing on the sand, swimming in the surf or taking part in one of the many activities available locally, from kayaking to cycling, fishing and coasteering. Head to the station to take the iconic steam railway to nearby Corfe Castle (4.5 miles) or hop in the car to see some of the Jurassic Coast’s most popular attractions, including Lulworth Cove (16.5 miles) and Durdle Door (17 miles).
