    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10
    A short stroll from Swanage Beach, this bright, spacious, seaside house offers views over Swanage bay. Spacious living, bright rooms and a large balcony make our house a dream for extended families. The location is quietly residential yet the beach, shops and pubs are all nearby.

    The interior is decorated in a modern simple style, with open living spaces, a contemporary kitchen and a separate games room. 3 double bedrooms, plus a twin bed room with bunks for the kids and 3 bathrooms make for comfortable family living.

    The Quarterdeck holiday cottage is located just four minutes' walk from the beach, but is also a short walk to Swanage restaurants, shops and pubs. The Dorset holiday house is in a quiet and peaceful location with impressive views of Swanage, the bay and surrounding...

Everything was perfect in the house and we were so lucky to have lovely warm weather so sat on the balcony and in the garden soaking up the sun. The location was ideal for strolling to beach or chops/restaurants but best of all for access to lovely long coastal walks and cream teas! more

Management response:

Thank you for letting us know you had a great holiday. We are delighted the house worked so well for you more
