  • Charming ground-floor apartment, set close to Swanage Bay
  • Welcoming social spaces throughout with electric fire, period features and outdoor seating
  • Stunning coastal location within 100 metres of the Jurassic Coast, beach and coast path
Property code: OC-C27919

Brimming with tail-wagging character, this fetching ground-floor apartment will transport you to centuries past, perfectly reflecting the historic coastline of the surrounding seaside resort of Swanage. Perfect for families and couples looking to uncover the playground of outdoor activities along the Jurassic Coastline that canine companions will go mutts for.

Boasting fetching extra special homely touches everywhere you look, lead the way into the cosy lounge to flop down on the comfortable sofa as your four-legged friend stretches out on the rug at your feet. Tame the growl of hungry tummies by whipping up a locally sourced feast in the contemporary farmhouse-style kitchen before gathering the whole pack to make special family memories seated around the rustic dining table in the dining room. You won’t be leaving behind your sandy surroundings for long as you retire to either the double or twin bedroom which both feature a colourful coastal colour palette and décor that’ll lull you into a peaceful slumber dreaming of tomorrow’s adventure. Little paws will love padding around the patio in the enclosed courtyard as you dine alfresco long into the evening.

Located on the Isle of Purbeck, you’ll be barking mad if you don’t fall in love with the charming coastal town of Swanage, the perfect spot to explore Dorset’s World Heritage Coastline with your four-pawed pal in tow. Take the lead to jump aboard the Swanage Heritage Railway a mile away; hop off the line at Corfe Castle 5.5 miles away to have a ball exploring the iconic royal castle ruins established by William the Conqueror. Find plenty of sticks to fetch along the woodland walks and extensive parkland that surround the re-imagined Venetian palace of Kingston Lacy 24 miles away; playful pups can refuel at the water bowls in the courtyard.

Once the heating had taken the chill off the cottage, it was entirely comfortable. We were surprised at its size, usually pictures make places look bigger, the ones in the ad did not do justice to the scale of the place. Parking, the markings were invisible on arriving at night, perhaps a little reflective plaque on the wall could be fitted?

Very conveniently situated close to the beach. Apartment has great character with lots of period fittings rather than the normal IKEA furniture you find in so many holiday properties. Spacious with good kitchen. Courtyard is tiny but good for letting the dogs out in the middle of the night as it is very secure for all but the smallest dogs.

An excellent ground floor apartment with plenty of space for 4 people. A lovely location beyond the end of the promenade and slightly up the hill. Couldn't have wanted a nicer place to stay for a week in Swanage.

This was in a perfect location with everything close by. The property was extremely well presented nothing could be faulted. We took our dog which was brilliant especially being all on one level and having the courtyard. Off street parking was good but there was plenty of free parking nearby. I would certainly go back and highly recommend.
