The property is located at the bottom of a slope between the High Street of Swanage and Durlston Country Park and offers a convenient base for exploring the wonders of the local area. Swanage itself has a number of fantastic walks for taking as a family or just with the dog; and Durlston Country Park offers 280 acres of coastal woodland, ideal for picnics, and Durlston Castle, with its Victorian folly, is well worth the visit.

This home is located over three floors and has some lovely period features throughout. Enter the property up three steps through the front door into the hall, you can’t fail to notice the stunning original mosaic tiled floor beneath your feet. The sitting room, dining room and kitchen with oven and hob, fridge, microwave, washing machine, freezer, drier and dishwasher. The layout is open plan and it benefits from double aspect windows, with views of the bay and the local area. An original Victorian fireplace and comfortable soft furnishings make this room homely and cosy. The dining area has a traditional farmhouse table with benches for family dining and the kitchen has all the modern conveniences. There is also a bathroom on this floor with bath, WC and basin. On the first floor there are two bedrooms both with original Victorian fireplaces and both with en-suite bathrooms. On the second floor there are a further two bedrooms, one with en-suite and sea views.

Whilst this property doesn’t have a garden outside, it certainly makes up for that in the interior of the house with it being light and airy, and also the position of the property means that you are only a short walk from rolling countryside and rural charm.

Lovely location, convenient for beach and town. House was perfect for our holiday-this was our second stay at Tillys.

A beautiful house which felt more like a home and where we really enjoyed spending time. Very relaxing with a lovely open fire and adjoining kitchen/diner and sitting room which felt very inclusive when all the family were downstairs. Bedrooms very cosy and beds comfortable. Apart from a slight smell of drains in the top floor bathroom, everything Read morewas perfect! Hide

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.
