Right on the beach within strolling distance of restaurants, bars & shops.
Working and living in and around London we began Holidaying in Swanage around 10 years ago. I then discovered I have family in Swanage and absolutely adore this quaint "time forgotten" sea side town. Both my wife and I visited Swanage during a school trip and vowed to return some day! we are proud to be part of the community and have made many life long friends. Its just a friendly place!
Warren purchased this Apartment in 2011
Why Warren chose Swanage
We have been visiting Swanage for many years and fell in love with its timeless charm. The pace is relaxed and the beach is soft sand and is award winning. We converted our Edwardian apartment with all mod cons whilst retaining period charm. Its location is arguably the best in Swanage, as its a right on the beach and in the centre of the bay providing a 360 panoramic view over the entire bay. its a few second stroll to a host of restaurants, bars, shops and entertainment. the theatre, Cinema and arcades are a 30 second stroll ! No need to drive but the area is packed with numerous attractions and things to do and visit.
What makes this Apartment unique
We are a family run holiday home and have strived to make it "home from home". You will find all mod cons and a huge DVD library plus a host of board games to entertain. Our location is perfect as not only RIGHT ON THE BEACH, but within strolling distance of restaurants, bars, shops, arcades, cinema and theatre ! if beaches aren't your thing then within a 10 minute stroll you are walking the cliffs with a rural back drop one side and the sea looking out to France the other! Bike hire is available nearby and there's even a castle to explore! (Durlston castle, 20 minute walk or 3 minute drive) Our apartment is all on one level with NO STAIRS making it ideal for elderly. We even allow small dogs (maximum 2)

Fantastic apartment in a perfect location

There are so many things to do in Dorset – if you are wondering where to go and what to do in Dorset, here are some ideas to help you explore, enjoy and make the most of this county.
The magnificent Dorset coastline, together with the outstanding natural beauty of the unspoilt countryside, makes this county a very special place to come and explore.
Discover the breathtaking Jurassic Coast, England's first natural World Heritage Site, stretching for 95 miles from neighbouring East Devon to Studland Bay in Dorset. There is so much to do along this stunning coastline, which is world famous for fossil hunting. There are wonderful views for walkers on the South West Coast Path National Trail, or you can simply enjoy the spectacular scenery on a gentle coastal cruise.
Away from the coast you will find miles and miles of rolling countryside sprinkled with charming villages and fascinating market towns. Almost all of Dorset's countryside is protected and is home to a huge diversity of wildlife in downlands, tranquil river valleys, water meadows, woodlands and colourful heathlands.
Her Majesty The Queen and his Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh visited Dorset on 11 June 2009, why not view their visits to Weymouth beach, Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Academy and The Tank Museum perhaps explore some of these areas yourself on your visit to Dorset.
It is no wonder that the area has captivated film and TV makers from all over the world. Productions of all kinds have been filmed on location here, with Dorset's unspoilt countryside, dramatic coastline and spectacular historic houses and gardens being used as a backdrop to the action.
The Jurassic Coast is a 95 mile stretch of outstanding geology in between Dorset and East Devon which is now designated as a World Heritage Site.
Well preserved dinosaurs and dinosaur footprints have been found along parts of the coast and West Dorset is a very good area for fossils.
The beaches around Kimmeridge are very popular with fossil hunters and the safest way to find fossils is on the beaches at low tide.
