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.

Enviably located at the eastern end of Swanage Bay, this single-storey holiday let promises relaxing beach days and fresh sea air. The beach is just 100 yards from the doorstep - the perfect spot for unwinding on a sunbed or hiring a pedalo. Thrill-seekers will love the water sports on offer here, with sailing, water skiing, windsurfing, even dive excursions and training, all running regularly. Explore the picturesque South West Coast Path by walking 3 miles to the nearby iconic chalk stacks of Old Harry Rocks, where you can enjoy breath-taking views of the Jurassic Coast and the Isle of Wight.

Step into the ground-floor apartment, heading from the entrance hall to the spacious double bedroom on your right which boasts an en-suite bathroom with shower, WC and freestanding bath. Lovingly decorated to provide a light and airy yet cosy, homely aesthetic, you will find a double bed and neutral decor. Along the hall, relax in the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, where you will find a comfortable living space with sofa, TV and Victorian feature fireplace. Beside the bay window is a dining area with seating for two - the perfect spot for a romantic meal cooked in the fully-equipped kitchen. Here you will find an oven, induction hob, and fridge, as well as a dishwasher so you can spend more time relaxing and less time arguing over the dishes! After dinner, relax in the adjoining conservatory and catch a glimpse of the sea, opening the French doors onto the attractive, mature garden.

The garden is split across two levels; the upper terrace has a lawn with shrubbery, as well as a BBQ for those al fresco dinners, while the lower terrace - reached by five steps - has a lawn and raised beds with flowers and shrubs. Parking for one car is available to the side of the property.

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.

Dorset, a location of enduring popularity is a small rural gem of a county encompassing all of the best parts of rural England: rolling green hills, woodland and hedgerows abundant with flora and fauna running down to the sea yet situated just 3 hours from London and the South East.

The whole coastline from Exmouth to Poole has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Known as the Jurassic Coast, it is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status and offers unspoilt views with dramatic cliff-top walks alongside beautiful, safe, sandy beaches which often welcome your four-legged friends too. From the dramatic natural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland; Dorset has it all.

This South West county is also a treasure trove of secrets waiting to be discovered. Having grown out of the landscape out of the centuries, many of Dorset’s small rural towns expose history at every turn to inform and delight guests, whilst for the more energetic, footpaths and cycle-ways open up to reveal Dorset’s hidden secrets and the coast is always close at hand for those who love the water.

Why not head to Lyme Regis – classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much like most of West Dorset to uncover an old-world ambience and excellent fossil hunting or discover the drama of Lulworth with the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

Dorset’s towns and villages ooze quintessential charm and are graced by fine buildings which have often been immortalised in Thomas Hardy’s books, including Dorchester – his birthplace. Wherever you choose to stay, you are never far from the fascinating Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastal Path.
