Property code: DC143

This attractive ground floor apartment is perfectly placed for a couple’s coastal getaway, just steps from Swanage Bay’s gently sloping white sand beach on the Jurassic Coast.

Enviably located at the eastern end of Swanage Bay, this single-storey holiday let within Victorian Villa promises relaxing beach days and fresh sea air. The beach is just 100 yards from the doorstep - the perfect spot for unwinding on a sunbed or hiring a pedalo. Thrill-seekers will love the water sports on offer here, with sailing, water skiing, windsurfing, even dive excursions and training, all running regularly. Explore the picturesque South West Coast Path by walking 3 miles to the nearby iconic chalk stacks of Old Harry Rocks, where you can enjoy breath-taking views of the Jurassic Coast and the Isle of Wight.

Step into the ground-floor apartment, heading from the entrance hall to the spacious double bedroom on your right which boasts an en-suite bathroom with shower, WC and freestanding bath. Lovingly decorated to provide a light and airy yet cosy, homely aesthetic, you will find a double bed and neutral decor. Along the hall, relax in the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, where you will find a comfortable living space with sofa, TV and Victorian feature fireplace. Beside the bay window is a dining area with seating for two - the perfect spot for a romantic meal cooked in the fully-equipped kitchen. Here you will find an oven, induction hob, and fridge, as well as a dishwasher so you can spend more time relaxing and less time arguing over the dishes! After dinner, relax in the adjoining conservatory and catch a glimpse of the sea, opening the French doors onto the attractive, mature garden.

The garden is split across two levels; the upper terrace has a lawn with shrubbery, as well as a BBQ for those al fresco dinners, while the lower terrace - reached by five steps - has a lawn and raised beds with flowers and shrubs. Parking for one car is available to the side of the property.

Returning to Seaglinpse was like going home....clean, light and comfortable with plenty of space to enjoy a relaxing holiday. The beach location is perfect for swimming and other watersports. There is some traffic noise at busy times but the location outweighs that slight irritation. We have already booked for next year!
