  • "We were actually upgraded to an even better Lodge which was the one I would have picked for myself due to its position overlooking the countryside."

    The place was very roomy although it could have accommodated more people. Liked the fact too that the site itself was just outside Swanage itself but close enough to get to easily. My Grandaughter loved the fact it had the bonus of a hot tub. My only one reget that we were too early in the season (due to school term dates) for some facilities on the site to be open (ie restaurant and pub).

The property

Set in the semi-rural setting of Herston Yards Farm, a wonderful holiday park resting on the outskirts of Swanage near the Dorset coastline, lies this charming, three-bedroom holiday lodge, Oaks.

With an exquisite, wood-clad exterior, a well-appointed, open-plan living space, a tremendous proximity to an on-site shop and pub, this delightful home welcomes a large family or group of friends who are seeking their next relaxing escape within the gorgeous setting of the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

After you've settled into your new home-from-home, get to work in the lodge's fully-equipped kitchen, where you'll find all the appliances you need to cook up a hearty, home-cooked dinner.

Savour your meals at the dining table, or take your feasts outside onto the outdoor decking, where you can raise a toast to your getaway, and even indulge in a long, hot soak in your very own private hot tub once you've finished wining and dining.

After the sun has set, treat yourself to an indulgent, rejuvenating shower or bath before you tuck yourself in for a well-earned rest in any of the three inviting bedrooms, each one featuring a Freeview-enabled TV.

When you're ready, head out and explore what your local surroundings have in store.

Head over on foot to The Shop and The Old Mess Room, two nearby on-site locations that allow you to stock up on homely essentials and enjoy a tasty, sit-down meal, respectively.

Your trip to the region would be incomplete without spending a day in Swanage, the town offering visitors a chance to take a peaceful stroll along the idyllic spots of Swanage Bay and Pier, as well as embark on a historic train ride along the popular Swanage Railway!

Perfect for any season, book Oaks for an unforgettable escape to 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.
