Cottage
Only five minutes from a Blue Flag beach in beautiful Swanage, this Grade II listed cottage is full of character with a farmhouse kitchen complete with Aga, sitting room with a woodburning stove, an outside sundeck and BBQ. On three floors, the cottage sleeps up to 7 people in 3 bedrooms (one double with shower room, one twin room and one room with a children's single bed and full size bunkbeds) and family bathroom and separate WC. Downstairs, the sitting room leads onto the kitchen, utility room and then onto the sundeck and down to the private garden. Ideal for families and people of all ages keen to explore the Jurassic coastline but please note that the stairs to the double room at the top of the cottage are steep and may be difficult for those with mobility problems.

Swanage is a Victorian seaside town with Blue flag beaches, independent shops, pubs and galleries and a steam train direct to Corfe Castle. Ideally located to access the wonders of the Jurassic coast, great walks, scuba diving, sea kayaking, sailing and kite surfing, golf are all available close by. For the less energetic, other attractions include Studland Bay, Brownsea Island, Monkeyworld, the Tank Museum, Lulworth Cove and Castle and the lost village of Tyneham, as well as the National Trust gem of Kingston Lacy.
