  • "Just returned from our second stay and already booked for next year."

    We love the apartment. We have some suggestions which would enhance the facilities: Kitchen: Need a colander, smaller teapot. Drawers need sorting! Lounge: Coffee table. Bedrooms: Both need mirrors, summer duvets. Walk in shower needs a basket/holder for shower gel etc. The other bathroom needs a shower screen as water likely to go everywhere from wand shower. Would be helpful to identify which keys open front door and apartment door.

  • "We were very comfortable at 6 The Lookout, which is a warm, ultra modern apartment."

    It is near the town, but up very steep hills. There is a lovely sea/coastal view from one window at the dining room table. The sofa and large chair with footstool are luxurious! The kitchen is well equipped, and I enjoyed using the Portmeirion 'Botanic Garden' crockery. Small criticisms: you can't put in the plugs in the bathroom basins, not broken, just part of an odd, impractical design. The iron bedhead in the second bedroom is not attached and not comfortable to lean against if reading in bed.

  • "Nice But Overpriced."

    Clean, fairly spacious & good location. However: Very overlooked by adjacent properties, footpaths & road, have to balance the use of the many blinds to keep privacy whilst still allowing light in. Windows quite difficult to fully open (oh those awkward little black window stoppers!). View of distant Swanage beach is limited to only one side window! Most of the lounge windows lookout over the road into the opposite YHA car park. As a light sleeper the noises from the nearby lift & adjacent stairwell did disturb sleep. Walk-in shower flooded if jet shower used for any length of time. I know this was not offered but It was quite warm weather when we stayed so really missed having a balcony or outdoor space (like apartment below) to sit and have an evening drink on. No TV in main bedroom! No plugs in bathroom sinks so difficult to wet shave. No coffee table in lounge so have to put your mugs on the floor (with anticipated consequences!) No tumble drier which would have been a better way to dry clothes than hanging them over the towel rails. Nice but Overpriced. Would I stop there again? No. Would I recommend it? With reservations.

  • "Lovely apartment, bright and airy."

    Well situated for fantastic walks and sightseeing. Very good local bus service so didn’t need to use the car at all. Lots of places to eat within walking distance.

  • "Lovely apartment which we have booked again for next year."

    A bit more attention to detail such as labelling up the keys would have been helpful. The apartment has been provided with most things that you would need, but items need to be kept in order between lettings. The general cleanliness of the place was ok, but more thorough cleaning would be helpful in high use areas such as the bathrooms and kitchen.

  • "The accommodation was gorgeous; contemporary, stylish, comfortable and very clean."

    It is perfectly positioned between the town and the beautiful clean sandy beaches and Durlston Country Park for amazing sea views and cliff top walks. I would thoroughly recommend this property and location for a British summer holiday!

  • "The property owners had certainly thought of pretty much everything, one small suggestion would be maybe a fan and a mirror in the bedrooms."

    That said a very comfortable stay indeed and a great base for visiting all the surrounding areas. Have already recommended to a number of friends and our families and would like to revisit in the future.

About the location

SWANAGE

Wareham 9.7 miles; Poole 20 miles.

The small, family-friendly seaside resort of Swanage is situated at the eastern end of Dorset’s famous Jurassic Coast, on the celebrated Isle of Purbeck and is probably best known for its wonderful, gently shelving golden sands. The little town offers visitors plenty of shops, good pubs and restaurants, some of which specialise in locally caught seafood, and is also well known for its annual jazz festival, which takes place each July. The attractive, Victorian wooden pier offers a great place for a stroll or try fishing, and often used a departure point for divers, it’s a wonderful place to watch the world pass by. The historic Swanage Railway has its terminus in the town and regular nostalgic steam engine trips take tourists for a picturesque 6-mile journey, chugging through lovely countryside to stop just beyond the romantic ruin of Corfe Castle. Nearby Durlston Country Park offers a lovely day out with spectacular coastal walks, dolphin spotting and wildlife watching, together with comfortable viewing points and a well-stocked cafe for a treat after all the fresh air. Take the short drive to Studland, which has one of the finest beaches in the country, surrounded by heathland, together with the regular chain ferry, which crosses the mouth of Poole Harbour to Sandbanks. This truly is a delightful holiday destination at any time of the year.
