    “Lovely cottage, small but comfortable and clean, Wonderful beds, slept really good.”

    Only thing I would fix is the shower head, you have to hold to use, would be nice if they fixed it so it would work in place, just need to tighten a few screws there. Otherwise, great value and very good location.

The property

Resting in Dorset's coastal town of Swanage, is Seaforth, a contemporary, semi-detached house, providing the ideal home away from home for a family or group of friends looking for a break on the Jurassic Coast.

This spacious accommodation boasts a snug sitting room where you can gather together and reminisce of the past day's adventures, or settle down in front of the TV to unwind and enjoy a movie night.

The open-plan kitchen/diner is the perfect social area to carry on your conversations over a delicious meal, rustled up by the head chef in the well-equipped kitchen space.

When the day draws to an end, climb the stairs to the first floor to find the three well-presented bedrooms; made up of a master double with its very own TV so you can watch your favourite shows from the comfort of the covers, a second, equally inviting double, and a final bunk room perfect for the little ones, this property offers a great sleeping arrangement for a variety of group needs.

The family bathroom also rests on the first floor, featuring a bath with overhead shower, you can choose how best to prepare for your day of adventure.

Step outside into the enclosed patio garden, a wonderful space for relaxing with an evening glass of wine or a morning cup of tea, complete with outdoor furniture and pretty lighting where you can dine alfresco in the warmer months.

The attractive seaside town of Swanage boasts a good variety of independent retailers, high street shops, bars and restaurants, and is the home to the prestigious Blue Flag awarded Swanage Beach where you can swim in the clear waters of the sheltered bay and enjoy some bucket and spade fun.

There are plenty of local convenience stores to choose from where you can discover all the wonders of the locally produced food including chocolate, ice cream, beer and cider and cheese - you won’t be disappointed!

Enjoy a day out on the vintage steam railway where you can experience a unique journey through six miles of beautiful scenery passing the magnificent ruins of Corfe Castle and, within a scenic drive, you can visit Bovington Tank Museum and Monkey World Ape and Rescue Centre, both a fun-filled day for all the family.

Seaforth is a wonderfully located property for a memorable holiday, whatever you choose to do in delightful Dorset.

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.
