  • Located within a beautiful original Victorian Villa this is a spacious ground floor apartment arranged on one level with enclosed garden
  • Enjoy sea glimpses from the cosy conservatory and breathe in the salty sea air with the beach just 100 yards away
  • Ideal for a romantic retreat and a perfect base to explore the impressive Jurassic Coast
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 king-size 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.

This is a stunning apartment that lacked nothing. Every necessity had been catered for and it was beautifully clean. We particularly loved the conservatory and its outlook, spending most of our evenings in there once it turned chilly. Great location too, just a long enough walk into Swanage to have earned a good dinner. Oh and the scones, they wereRead more fabulous! We had our dog with us and she had a welcome pack too. We would return here and wouldnt hesitate to recommend it either. Hide

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!
