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.

Security- the communal front door has large gaps around the frame with loose screws and is easily opened without the key from the outside. Smoke detector testing - not documented in the welcome folder since 2021. Dishwasher dirty and cutlery had baked on food.

The apartment was all we wanted it to be, it was clean and comfortable and a short walk down the hill to the town centre. The views were also fantastic, and there is good walking all around the apartment area although some hills which could be challenging for the less fit. We would definitely stay again.

We loved our stay at Purbeck Vista. The apartment was clean, comfortable, well-equipped and wonderfully located, only a short (albeit uphill) walk from Swanage town and Peveril Point. Milk, tea and biscuits on arrival is a nice touch. We'll be back :-)
