Property code: DC143

This attractive ground floor apartment is perfectly placed for a couple’s coastal getaway, just steps from Swanage Bay’s gently sloping white sand beach on the Jurassic Coast.

This stunning flat on the ground floor of an original Victorian villa in the seaside town of Swanage offers glimpses of the beautiful coastline, making it the ideal place for couples to switch off and relax. Swanage is situated within the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and considered to be the eastern gateway to the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, so there is plenty of coast and countryside to discover within a few miles of the property - perfect for romantic strolls or arduous hikes. Being a bustling seaside town with a sandy beach, there are plenty of shops and eateries on offer within a mile.

This one-bedroom property is a sophisticated and elegant blend of traditional and contemporary, with a palette of cool whites, greys and blues, and classic pieces of furniture. The high ceilings and original features throughout give it a sense of grandeur and class. The open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner is a bright and airy space, whilst remaining practical and functional. The boutique/hotel-style double bedroom has an en-suite to match with a freestanding bath and separate shower. A conservatory to the rear allows access on to the terraced garden with a BBQ and outdoor furniture on the higher terrace.

From Swanage, you can travel on the Steam Railway to the National Trust’s Corfe Castle, a quintessentially English historical village and castle (5.5 miles). Venturing north to the large port town of Poole (20 miles), there are plenty of boat trips to choose from including one to the National Trust’s Brownsea Island, famous for its red squirrels. If you’d prefer to get out, soak up the panoramic views and breathe in the fresh, sea air, then wander along the South West Coast Path to Studland (4 miles) or in the other direction to the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site.

The apartment was fabulous. Everything was so new and clean. It was in a beautiful location with view of the sea from the conservatory. We were welcomed with 6 home made scones wrapped in a tea towel on the table and clotted cream and jam in the fridge. We immediately felt at home and cant wait to hopefully book again for next year.

Returning to Seaglinpse was like going home....clean, light and comfortable with plenty of space to enjoy a relaxing holiday. The beach location is perfect for swimming and other watersports. There is some traffic noise at busy times but the location outweighs that slight irritation. We have already booked for next year!

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.

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.
