This stunning property in the seaside town of Swanage boasts beautiful views of Swanage Bay and is a short walk from the local amenities, making it the ideal place for families to spend time together.

At the northern end of the popular seaside resort of Swanage, this property occupies a desirable, quiet location. It is a light and airy apartment and its neutral tones, oak floors and exposed beams create an understated elegance that will allow everyone to relax in style. From Swanage, you can travel on the Swanage Steam Railway to the National Trust’s Corfe Castle, a historical village and castle (5.5 miles). If you venture into the large town of Poole (20 miles), there are plenty of boat trips to choose from including one to the National Trust’s Brownsea Island, famous for red squirrels. Or why not wander along the South West Coast Path and admire the attractive coastline and beaches.

As you enter the property, a flight of stairs takes you up to the apartment which is situated on the first and second floors. On the spacious landing you will be greeted by table football and a piano, offering a nice variety of entertainment in addition to the TV. The first room you come across is the lounge, with its blend of neutral tones and warm woods, allowing the sea views to speak for themselves. There is an additional snug/playroom next door, which means the kids can have their own space and let the adults relax in peace. Like the rest of the apartment, the kitchen/diner is light, airy and contemporary; it is well-equipped and offers plenty of space for communal dining. Also on the first floor, there is a bathroom with shower and a crisp, clean double bedroom with lots of storage. On the second floor, there is a further bathroom with a bath and shower over it; its white suite and painted floorboards allow light to flood in and accentuate the stunning view. There is another double bedroom on this floor, in addition to a single and twin bedroom, which are joined by an exciting tunnel that the kids will love. The twin room has an en-suite WC and hand basin for convenience.

Outside, the rear garden has a paved path, flower beds and a lawn, but this property’s unique selling point has to be the stunning decked area at the end of the garden. Its glass balustrade allows amazing, far-reaching views of the beach below and Swanage Bay. What a perfect place to sit back, relax and enjoy a glass of wine!

Please note there is a refundable £150 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

  • 4 bedrooms – 2 doubles, 1 twin and 1 single – the twin and the single are linked by a tunnel in the corner of the room

A beautiful spacious property on a fantastic location, with idyllic sea views. We found it to be very well equipped, especially for our children with lots of toys to entertain them when they werent playing on the beach just down the road. The sea views were a real highlight for us, simply beautiful.

We stayed here with our son and daughter-in-law and 2 grandsons (2yrs and 6 weeks). The house is very well equipped for children/babies, the playroom is just a goldmine of things for little ones to do. There is plenty of space for grown-ups also and the garden overlooking the beach and sea is great, getting the sun for most of the day. With the beaRead morech a short 5 mins walk and Swanage and Studland only 5-10 mins away, its ideally located for a great family get-together. We can recommend highly. Hide

CONGRATULATIONS: THIS PLACE IS AT THE TOP OF OUR VISIT AGAIN ASAP LIST - WE HAD JUST THE BEST TIME. I HAVE A SMALL BUILDING COMPANY AND RENT 2-3 TIMES PER YEAR. THIS PROPERTY WAS JUST MAGNIFICENT FOR CHILDREN/PARENTS AND GRAND PARENTS. THE TOYS, GAMES, PIANO - THE SPACE AND THE VIEWS MAKE IT A REAL ONE OFF HOLIDAY PROPERTY.

FANTASTIC!! I cannot rate this property highly enough. The apartment is beautiful, with everything that you could possibly need. It's location is amazing with breathtaking views overlooking the beach. There was a chilled bottle of wine and milk in the fridge on arrival plus tea, coffee, biscuits, etc. This was a much needed holiday (after our holidRead moreay abroad was cancelled) after lock down and did not fail to deliver. Will definitely be back (if we can book, as it is so popular!). Hide

With a short walk down to the beach a bit of a climb back up though . The cottage had everything we needed fora weeks stay . I would recommend it to anyone with family or not .

We loved this property which had a lovely ambience. It was great to sit at the table on the edge of the cliff and watch what was happening in the bay. Panoramic views of the bay. Cheap taxis and a bus service we used when we didn't want to take the car. The welcome pack was great.

Absolutely fantastic property! The views are so beautiful and falling asleep to the sound on the waves is magical! Even with two children under the age of two this was the most relaxing holiday we've had.
