This Victorian property seamlessly combines original features with contemporary style. Set in an elevated position above the vibrant seaside town of Swanage this is the ideal base for families.

The traditional Victorian seaside town of Swanage is known for its beautiful sandy beach, promenade and pier. The town centre is home to a great selection of independent shops, restaurants, pubs and cafés as well as activities for all the family including pedaloes for hire and crazy golf. From here you can easily tour the beautiful Purbeck Hills or head 5.5 miles to the west and explore the old quarry at Winspit. The popular sites of Kimmeridge, Old Harry Rocks, and Lulworth Cove are also within reach. A chain ferry runs from nearby Studland across to Bournemouth and Poole, where you can indulge in some retail therapy, or simply relax on the unspoilt beach, which is backed by sand dunes and a nature reserve.

A step leads up to the front door into this end of terrace property. Once inside you are met with a welcoming hallway complete with feature flooring. Immediately to the right is a beautiful lounge with open fireplace, bay window and Smart TV. Heading further down the hallway you will find two steps, which lead into the stunning kitchen/diner. This inviting room has a gas range style oven with electric oven, dishwasher, fridge with ice compartment and washing machine. A door leads from here into a useful sun room, which is home to a further fridge/freezer. A useful separate WC also leads off of the dining area. Taking the stairs to the first floor you will come to a landing, giving access to a pretty twin bedroom and a contemporary shower room with WC next door. Just opposite is a double bedroom and a further imposing double bedroom, with beautiful bay window where you can catch a glimpse of the sea. Taking the stairs to the second floor you will find two charming single bedrooms set into the eaves and a stylish contemporary bathroom complete with freestanding bath, separate shower and WC. Due to the setting within the eaves, all rooms on the second floor have some areas of restricted head height. All of the bedrooms boast lovely decorative fireplaces.

Heading into the courtyard garden from the kitchen you can enjoy the raised deck with table and chairs and admire the distant sea views across the rooftops. There is roadside parking opposite the property and in the surrounding streets (subject to availability).

Fantastic few days away! 5 adults and 1 dog - plenty of room, comfy beds and well equipped home. Literally 2 minutes walk into town and even a pub at the bottom of the road.

House is very convenient for town, beach and exploring the area. Parking can be a challenge at times. Very good size for our party of 5 adults and 1 baby. Lovely and clean and helpful when we couldnt find the high chair! Outdoor space is not huge but works for somewhere to sit and eat.

We have had a wonderful holiday at Stafford House. The house is beautiful, its spacious with high quality furniture and decor. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need.

The house was perfect for exploring Swanage and the wider Jurassic Coast. The centre of Swanage and waterfront are a minute walk. All the bedrooms were a great size, light and comfortable. We found parking easy however note it could be difficult in peak season. We will definitely return on our next trip to Swanage.
