Spacious house decorated in a contemporary coastal style and set within easy reach of the vibrant centre of Swanage and its popular beach. Spend fun filled days touring this picturesque area

The perfect home for explorers, this brilliant bolthole sleeps four over three bedrooms and sits close to beautiful coastal spots and places to explore inland. Just a mile from the dramatic twists and turns of the South West Coast Path and Swanage Beach, enjoy sandy days and sea swims before heading back to unwind in style. Cosy up inside or continue your evening with a sundowner feast on the decking and enjoy your elevated position with views over the Dorset Hills.

Descend the sloped driveway, with parking for two cars, unload your bags and step inside to unpack and make yourselves at home. Head straight through to the open-plan lounge/diner, which is filled with natural light and cool, tranquil tones. Cosy up on the curved, corner sofa and light the wood burner effect electric fire for a relaxing welcome home from adventures, or pile the dining table high with treats, open the balcony doors and let the fresh air flood inside. Ample space in the kitchen means you can designate a couple of chefs to rustle up a storm to be eaten either inside or out. When it’s time to say goodnight, climb stairs to the first floor where a double bedroom and two single bedrooms await weary heads. With lovely views over the Purbeck Hills, rise and shine and admire your surroundings before freshening up in the family bathroom.

With so many places to explore, plan your time wisely and make the most of your fabulous location. Spend a beach day at Swanage (1 mile) with its golden sands, crystal seas and delicious eateries. From here you can follow the 9-mile Purbeck Ridge Trail past Old Harry Rocks towards Corfe Castle, where magical remains are cared for by the National Trust. Take a dip in the tidal pool at Dancing Ledge (1.5 miles), where a refreshing dip is a great to start or end your day (dependant on the tides). A 17.5-mile journey east will take you to the magnificent archway at Durdle Door, whilst a 16.5-mile trip takes you to the iconic, Lulworth Cove.

Really homely property and great to access coastal walks, Swanage town and beach and local places of interest. Beds very comfortable and living room cosy and spacious. Kitchen has all necessary equipment and utensils. Best to park on the road rather than drive, as very steep.

The Palms is in a nice quiet road, neighbours are friendly. Parking at the property is very steep, so parking on road is recommended. The property is well equipped and clean. The beach is a long walk, better to use a car or local bus to the town. We had a good holiday and the value for money is good. The local area is great for exploring the PurbecRead morek and beyond.

We found this to be a very clean, bright and spacious holiday rental. It was located in a good location as the footpath close by took us directly to the coastal paths. The neighbourhood was quiet and secluded. We know Dorset well as we have relatives in the area and found the coastal paths close to Swanage an absolute delight to walk on.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Palms. The living space is both well equipped and spacious, with a stunning outlook over the surrounding countryside (and coastline from the right angle!) The kitchen in particular had everything that we needed, and as a family with young children, use of a dishwasher, washing machine, tumble drier and large frRead moreeezer box within the fridge was much appreciated. The rooms are all light, airy, and well maintained with plenty of storage. Hide

Location

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.
