Offering beautiful views across a sparkling bay, this stylish apartment makes a cosy holiday retreat for couples and smaller families eager to enjoy a break in a beautiful part of Dorset. Set in the tranquil seaside resort of Swanage, the apartment offers cosy accommodation for four guests, with ample space for a four-legged pal to come along and help you explore the blissful Isle of Purbeck. Featuring a lovely balcony, this delightful retreat is ideal for discovering the region’s serene beaches, cheerful fishing villages and picturesque countryside.

Entering this breezy apartment, the bright and welcoming lounge has glorious views and provides an ideal space to sit back and unwind in comfort. Double patio doors lead out onto a delightful, furnished balcony, perfect for a morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening as you take in the far-reaching bay views. Another set of double doors leads to the bright, fully equipped kitchen/diner providing a relaxing spot for cooking and sharing your favourite family meals. The apartment also features a family bathroom and two cosy bedrooms: a tastefully furnished twin and a spacious en-suite king-size room.

Beautiful flat and great location with excellent views. Generally clean but toilets needed a deep clean. Kitchen well stocked and a good size. The lift was very handy for getting suitcases up to the flat. Very quiet location. Sofas and chairs comfy and well positioned but the mattresses are well overdue being replaced and meant we all had backache Read moreand slept poorly. If the mattresses were replaced we'd definitely stay there again in the future. Hide

Excellently located property with beautiful views of the bay. The only improvement would be to have two sets of keys, and a few extra bigger glasses and cups and a bread knife. Apart from that it was perfect.
