Set on the outskirts of the beautiful seaside resort of Swanage, this charming former quarryman’s cottage is a lovely retreat for couples and smaller families seeking a relaxing getaway. Perfect for exploring a stunning part of the Isle of Purbeck, the stone-built property is full of character and features exposed stonework, wooden beams and a free-standing roll-top bath. Tastefully decorated and stylishly furnished throughout, this delightful holiday home offers fresh and cosy accommodation for up to four guests, with ample room for a pet dog to join you.

Entering this sweet cottage, the ground floor offers a welcoming lounge with exposed Purbeck stone walls, providing a lovely space to snuggle up and watch a movie. Heading through, there’s a charming open-plan kitchen/diner perfect for preparing and sharing a family feast. The ground floor also features a stylish family bathroom. A steep wooden cottage-style staircase leads up to the first floor where you will find another lounge, with cosy seating and a TV, with bi-fold doors allowing plenty of light to stream in. The first bedroom is on this level: a cheerful king-size room with views across Swanage. On the second floor, a spacious attic room features twin beds, a TV, a games console and wooden beams in the high vaulted ceiling. From the first-floor lounge, bi-fold doors open onto a lovely sundeck providing a fantastic spot for dining alfresco with your canine friend. A leafy path leads further into the garden with additional seating.

Dogs are welcome throughout Swanage, with popular attractions including the Victorian-era pier, Monkey Beach, The Downs and Durlston Country Park.

Had a lovely week, cottage very comfortable & lots of nice touches. Enjoyed the beaches, paddleboarding & Magnus (the dog) discovered he could swim! Local fish and chip shop was excellent fish - worth the wait.

After only booking a week before our holiday, we were pleased to find this gem! The cottage has everything we needed and the extra touches were nice to see - tea bags for our arrival! We all found the beds very comfy - the girls were hot on the last two nights upstairs so they de-camped to the top lounge! (very handy) We loved Swanage and Barney thRead moree dog had not been on a train, bus, or boat before! Everywhere welcomes dogs and we particularly enjoyed Sunday lunch at The Anchor & Ship Inn. Girls liked the waffle place and Baboo for iced coffee. Girls went paddle boarding on the pier twice (cheaper than the beach) and highly recommend.Thank you so much, we had a blast! Hide
