The Quarterdeck, 400m from beach, spacious modern family house

Holiday Rental House -
4 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 10
Swanage, Isle of Purbeck, Dorset, England
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 hills.

The house is rated 4 star by VisitBritain...

About the neighbourhood
The Swanage steam railway to Corfe Castle and visits to Monkey World at Wool sem to be very popular with our guests. We like the stunning coastal scenery, the sandy family beaches and especially the remote and wild beaches at Chapmans Pool, Worbarrow Bay and Durdle Door.

Studland Bay and Old Harry Rocks provide the most magnificent sandy beach on the South Coast. with scenery views, space and sand dunes.
