This welcoming property is set in an elevated spot above the town centre, has distant sea views across the bay and easy access to a wide choice of amenities as well as the beach

With sea views across the crystal blue waters of Swanage, this welcoming abode is great for seaside lovers. Escape to the coast and spend days on the beach or tread well-trodden tracks straight from your door, including the magnificent South West Coast Path which winds its way across the clifftops and through charming waterside villages. Sleeping three guests across two bedrooms, embark on adventures with friends or family and make sandy, adventurous memories together.

Step inside the communal entrance hall, up the shared staircase and make yourself at home in this first-floor abode. The open-plan living space is great for lazy afternoons together cosying up in front of the TV, and for lively games nights and fun mealtimes. Cook delicious feasts in the kitchen area and plate up at the table which sits in the bay window with glimpses of the sea. Filled with natural light, this space creates an inviting hub of the home where you can put the kettle on in the morning, check the weather and pour over a map to decide the day’s destination. When it’s time for bed, enjoy a restful night’s sleep in one of two bedrooms. Hang up your clothes and settle under the covers before waking and freshening up in the family bathroom or the en-suite shower room. Head out to the garden (shared with other properties in the building) for an al fresco mug of coffee in the morning and kick start your day with plenty of fresh air. There is off-road parking for one car and roadside parking nearby.

Less than a mile from the local beach at Swanage, leave the car behind, pack up a picnic and head to the bay for a family-friendly day. Pick up some extra goodies on your way to the coast or some local produce for dinner on your way home. 6 miles from home are the majestic remains of the picturesque Corfe Castle. Walk the Purbeck Ridgeway towards Old Harry Rocks and enjoy beautiful vistas before ending up at your destination.

Although it's just three hours from London and the South East, Dorset feels like a world away from the hubbub of the city. This gem of a county offers the very best of rural England: magnificent coastal scenery, vast sandy beaches, rolling hills, charming villages, country pubs, stately homes and medieval castles.

Take time to explore the dramatic and diverse coastline. Stretching 95 miles from East Devon to Poole, the Jurassic Coast has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status. Here, visitors can uncover Earth's fascinating history whilst enjoying unspoilt views over superb beaches, many of which welcome canine companions too. From the iconic rural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland, Dorset has it all.

Why not head to Lyme Regis, classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? Like much of West Dorset, it has an old-world ambience and offers excellent fossil hunting opportunities. Or head east to discover the beauty of Lulworth and the vibrant seaside resort of Swanage.

Steeped in history and with a certain quintessential charm, Dorset's glorious countryside is peppered with small towns and villages which are well worth a visit. Many are graced with fine buildings, immortalised in the books of Thomas Hardy, a Dorset-born novelist and poet. For more energetic visitors, footpaths and cycleways reveal the county's hidden secrets with the coast always close at hand for those who love the water.
