Gorgeous three-storey stylish Victorian terraced property with numerous period features ideally situated towards the bottom of the hill and close to Swanage town centre and the beautiful sandy beach.

Conveniently located in the heart of Swanage, this beautifully refurbished Victorian terraced townhouse has it all. Boasting excellent access to local shops, eateries, a wealth of activities and attractions and only 300 yards from the town’s sandy beach, all generations will find something to keep themselves entertained. Couples will enjoy the house's stylish Victorian charm, plus it is an ideal holiday getaway for families and friends with great communal lounge and kitchen diner.

Three external steps lead up to the front door, where you will enter the attractive hallway with period floor tiles. From here is the kitchen/diner and there is also a ground floor twin bedroom with en-suite, in addition to a separate family bathroom with integral shower. On the first floor is the comfortable and stylish lounge with a large window which allows plenty of natural light and ample seating around the open fireplace with fully working grate. Also on the first floor is a double bedroom, with en-suite. On the second floor, located at the top of the house within the eaves, are two bedrooms; one spacious master double with sea glimpses over the roof tops and en-suite and a twin bedroom. There is no garden to this property, however the beach, harbour, restaurants, shops, cafés and pubs are a short walk away. On-street parking available subject to availability

Near to Durlston Country Park (1 mile) and only 300 yards from the sea, there is ample to do in the surrounding area in Swanage. Whether you are a nature-lover, sun-seeker or window-shopper, there are activities for everyone. For something a little different, head Corfe Castle (6 miles) and enjoy a trip through time. For classic summer vibes, walk along the seafront with an ice cream and take in the views.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Studded on the Purbeck Heritage Coast, you’ll be able to lose yourself amongst the spectacular scenery, walking opportunities, and selection of nearby attractions Swanage has to offer. Studland, 3.5 miles away, has a wealth of sandy beaches worthy of any traditional bucket-and-spade holiday, but is also a delight for keen ramblers as the South West Coast Path stretches from Shell Bay to Minehead in Somerset. If you fancy a slice of retail therapy and traditional seaside amusements, then hop on the Studland to Sandbanks chain ferry to reach the seaside resort towns of Poole and Bournemouth. Heading west, the ruins of Corfe Castle tower over the surrounding village, 5.5 miles away, which boasts a unique assembly of independent shops, tearooms, and a steam railway. Worth Matravers, 4 miles away, is a treat for anyone with a love of quintessential chocolate-box villages, but Kimmeridge is the top destination for fossil hunting, rock pool rambling, and even snorkelling, 10 miles away.

The house was in a fantastic location, just a few minute walk to the town centre. The house was really clean and there were a few nice touches to the accommodation. Toilet roll, kitchen roll, washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets to name a few. There were lots of pictures on the wall making it feel homely.

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.
