This magnificent listed building, with 8 bedrooms and 9 bath/shower rooms, offers wonderful character holiday accommodation in a residential area, just a mile away from the lovely sandy beaches of Swanage Bay and a large selection of restaurants and shops.

This beautiful house dates back to the early 1600s with walls and roof built from local Purbeck stone. The house retains a lot of its original charm with ornate oak panelling and wood carvings. The principal rooms overlook the serene landscaped gardens, while the first and second floor rooms offer far-reaching views across the small seaside town of Swanage, to the sea and coast beyond.

The town of Swanage nestles peacefully amidst the beautiful Isle of Purbeck countryside, and is set between the Heads of Durlston and Studland, sloping gently down to the water’s edge. This small pleasant resort has an array of restaurants, interesting shops and a small theatre, not to mention spectacular floral displays in the parks and gardens.

In season, pleasure cruisers leave the pier daily, bound for Poole, Bournemouth and the Isle of Wight.
The Lifeboat Centre at Pervil Point is open to the public and fascinating to visit, whilst Durlston Country Park provides magnificent cliff walks and views of Anvil Point Lighthouse. A trip aboard Swanage’s restored steam railway also makes for a fun day out, winding its way through pretty scenery to the ruins of Corfe Castle.

Magnificent coastal walks extend north from the town to the National Trust sandy beaches at Studland while the South West Coastal Path leads to Kimmeridge, Tyneham and West Lulworth in the west, much of which is National Trust land and rich in local flora and fauna.

The larger seaside resorts of Poole and Bournemouth are just a ferry ride away, boasting a huge range of shops, theatres, museums, cinemas, and restaurants. The entire coast is excellent for trying out all manner of watersports - windsurfing, water-skiing, yachting and surfing to name just a few. Fishing and tennis are available a mile away in Swanage, and a local golf course can be found nearby. Shop ¼ mile. Easily accommodating 16 guests, ideally situated just a mile from sandy beaches, and great for discovering Dorset.
