It’s easy to see how this apartment was given its name. It’s almost impossible to get closer to the beautiful harbour and sandy beach than in this contemporary and comfortable two-bedroomed apartment, with every amenity you could need for a Dorset break.

This first-floor apartment is just 20 metres from the harbour-front in sought-after Swanage. Decorated in fresh neutral tones, this stylish home features wooden floors, Scandinavian-style furniture and window seats overlooking the town square and sea beyond. Perfect for romantic getaways for two or seaside escapes with the family, Swanage boasts a beautiful sandy beach, a great selection of shops and eateries, and a steam railway.

Rustle up delicious meals in the bijou kitchen, which features charming original floorboards, fresh white units and a large window overlooking the harbour. After a long day playing on the beach or walking the coastal path, take to the spacious and bright lounge area nearby for an evening of TV or games with the family. Both bedrooms, one double and one bunk, display the same fresh, bright feel with bay windows and wonderful sea views. There is on-street parking close to the property.

Located in an enviable position overlooking Swanage town square, this property is just a short stroll from the local shops, pubs, restaurants and galleries. The perfect destination for year-round getaways, Swanage offers safe swimming from its golden sandy beach in the summer, long walks along the South West Coast Path to nearby Studland (4.5 miles) and a host of adrenalin-pumping activities from coasteering to kayaking. When you’ve finished exploring the area on foot, hop on board the iconic steam railway that winds its way through the Dorset countryside past the historic Corfe Castle (6 miles) all the way to Norden (7.5 miles).

Very well equipped, great location, comfortable beds, small kitchen but more than adequate for a holiday property, plenty of kitchen equipment too.

A lovely flat with some excellent views of the bay. Very comfortable rooms, perfect for a small family retreat to the bustling town of Swanage.

Reviewed by Marco 19th June 2019

Excellent property on a perfect location! a bit high prices for our 5 nights though. Well equiped and very clean, except for the sink in the bathroom. Perhaps missed during the last cleaning. otherwise we had a amazing stay in the house.

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.
