Perfectly situated on the seafront with wonderful panoramic sea views. Enjoy the fun seaside town of Swanage and explore the spectacular Jurassic coastline.

Relax in comfort and take in the mesmerising seascapes from this two-storey property right on the seafront at Swanage. Step straight out and head to the sandy beach or wander the Dorset seaside town’s streets, pondering in shops and pausing in cafes. Up to six guests are welcome to stay at this holiday home, which has three bedrooms and sits above a local bakery.

Climb the steps to the front door, at first-floor level, and enter to find yourself in accommodation that is exceptionally bright and airy. Discover the contemporary kitchen/diner, which has an electric hob and cooker, microwave and refrigerator with freezer compartment, and ample space for preparing homecooked meals and dining together. Walk through into the lounge to unwind in the generous, light-filled space and to gaze out at the sea through large windows. Settle on the comfortable seating in here to watch TV or a DVD after an exciting day out in the sea air. Find a bathroom, with a shower over the bath and WC in here too. Follow the stairs up to all three bedrooms: two of these are doubles and one has bunk beds. The bunk bedroom and one double enjoy sea views. Find off-road parking for one car close to the holiday home.

Discover an abundance of activities to suit all ages in Swanage and beyond. Take a boat trip, go fishing or simply wander along the pier with an ice cream.

Visit Corfe Castle (6 miles) where the castle ruins overlook the Purbeck Hills, making the journey by steam train if you choose. Go for long walks in Durlston Country Park, attempting a section of the South West Coast Path, with its clifftop views.

The location of this property was amazing, right in the centre of town overlooking the sea. We barely used the car but very grateful the property had a parking space. The 3 of us all had a brilliant holiday in Swanage.

This cottage has a fabulous location for a car free sea side holiday with a family with the beach, boat trips, kayaking, coastal walks and the steam train all very accessible. The decor of the accommodation itself is a little bit dated but all in working order. It would not suit any one with mobility issues as it's a flight of stairs to the front dRead moreoor. Hide

Location

Map
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.
