A stroll through town leads you to the golden sandy beach or access to the Swanage Railway (heritage steam and diesel train service) and sports facilities of the Beach Gardens (tennis, putting and outdoor bowls). You can take in the spectacular landscape that this area is renowned for through short or long walks, including on the South West Coast Path, directly accessible from the apartment. Swanage is the eastern gateway to Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. Nearby Durlston Country Park is well worth a visit and is home to a beautiful Victorian Castle with a cafe and restaurant, as well as being a national nature reserve. A short drive away, the spectacular beaches of Studland Bay are owned by the National Trust and include the most popular naturist beach in the UK.

There are a variety of golf courses in the area which welcome non-members, including the Isle of Purbeck and Wareham golf clubs.

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.
