  • "The view is simple amazing."

    Bed was really comfortable. Everything you need is there and spotlessly clean. Lovely and warm. Excellent communication with the caretaker Terry. Would highly recommend this holiday property as we really enjoyed our stay here. Thank you

  • "This property exceeded our expectations."

    It was warm, cosy and ideally situated to enjoy great views and explore the surrounding area. The bed was very comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. This property suited us very well and we had a great holiday. However, please be mindful that it is on the second floor (so quite a few steps), their is no WiFi and parking was very tricky.

  • "The property was in a fantastic location."

    Parking was included so we didn't need to use our car the whole weekend! The apartment was as described so we were prepared for it to be basic, but it was very nice. Small but had everything you needed for a brilliant break. WiFi would have been an asset but we managed without. The apartment was very clean and adequately equipped. Altogether a great break.

The property

Enjoying stunning views over Swanage Pier in Dorset is Flat 3, a fabulously-positioned, second-floor apartment.

Just a stone's throw away from the beach, a hub of amenities and attractions, and whilst resting within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Flat 3 offers a well-equipped base for two guests, looking for a seascape.

Benefit from a designated parking space, before ascending the steps up to the apartment.

Be greeted by the kitchen/diner, offering a homely feel whilst fulfilling your self-catered needs, where you can prepare and enjoy meals together.

The sitting room rests next door, enjoying breath-taking, coastal vistas, where you can unwind with the electric fire to light on cooler evenings.

A king-size bed awaits, where you can catch some rest, before refreshing in the bathroom, housing both a bath and shower over.

On your doorstep you'll find the amenities of Swanage, where you can stock up on the necessities, dine out, stroll along the beachfront, follow the Purbeck Heritage Coast walking trail, or visit the Swanage Pier Trust, before donning your walking boots to traverse the Durlston Country Park and National Nature Reserve, reaching the renowned vantage point of the Dancing Ledge.

With the Studland and Godlingston Heath National Nature Resferve nearby, hiking and wildlife spotting opportunities are plentiful, whilst those who enjoy the coastal life will relish in the chance to visit Poole, with a bustling quay dotted with waterfront eateries, Upton Lake, Upton Country Park, and much more to experience, before continuing east to reach Bournemouth Pier, attractions, and it's lovely, golden shoreline.

Take to the Dorset coast at Flat 3.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location


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.
