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.
Getting around
You can walk to many of the things to do in and around Swanage. This includes the beach, the steam railway, Durlston Country Park, the shops, pubs, restaurants. We often do not use the car very much at all when we stay in Swanage. There are local bus services giving access to all the local sights that are further away. Google Purbeck Breezer 30, 40 and 50. With a car, there are even more options. I would describe a car as helpful rather than essential to enjoy the area.
