This homely converted quarryman's cottage is located overlooking Swanage's high street and the stunning countryside that heads towards the Dorset coast. The two-bedroom property is just 1 mile away from the beach and is the perfect destination for a quiet weekend or short break.

This cottage was once the home of the punchman's assistant from Swanage Beach and provides an ideally located and professionally renovated living space. Given its proximity to the beach and Dorset coast, couples looking for romance and older families will both appreciate this accommodation.

The first thing you notice upon entry, is the cosy and traditional sitting room with the stone work and beams of the original building very much on display. There's an inviting corner sofa and TV and it has been impeccably decorated. Further along, passing the steep wooden staircase to the left, on the ground floor you find the unconventionally shaped and designed kitchen, that not only offers space for a dining table but has a range cooker and hobs among the expected mod cons and white goods. Further along from the kitchen is a full-size bathroom, with a roll-top bath separate to the roomy shower enclosure. The bright, sophisticated and functional room has been tiled and given the same lightly-hued walls as the rest of the property. The wooden staircase on the ground floor takes you to the first floor where you will find a bedroom with a double bed, plenty of natural light and storage, and a secondary sitting room. The lounge area has a two-seater sofa and an armchair and another TV. By far the most striking thing about this room though are the bi-fold doors that lead out to an excellent sitting area, fully decked and enclosed with high fencing. Perfect for catching those morning rays or enjoying a glass of wine in the evening watching the stars fill the sky. Taking the slightly winding staircase to the second floor leads you to the second bedroom that has been furnished with two single beds, an armchair and TV.

On the outside of the cottage there is a short staircase that leads down from the decked area to a gravelled garden where there are trees and a nice timber walkway as well as a second sitting area.
