    Additional amenities & feature info
    The apartment offers you the chance to enjoy all the charm and facilities of a little seaside town within a few minutes walk and when you're tired at the end of a lovely summer's day you can retire to your own apartment, relax and watch the world go by from the seclusion of your own home.

    If you like, you can walk out for a meal in one of the many town's restaurants/pubs or venture further afield to a village inn or take the car ferry across the mouth of Poole Harbour to Bournemouth and Poole and take in a show/film and enjoy a late night meal afterwards.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 23 June 2011 for a stay in May 2011

Everything from booking, communications, check-in, and facilities available was spot on. The proprietor was very friendly and I felt like I was corresponding with an old (not too old) friend. The location is right on the esplanade at Swanage with uninterrupted views towards Isle of Wight. The flat has a great maritime feel and I loved the porthole window between... more

The flat was clean, the kitchen well equipped, the bedroom was light and comfortable. The lounge is of a good... more

Management response:
