  • "The flat was superb."

    As close to amenities as possible without being in town. 200yards to the beach and the same to the shops. As a touring base for Dorset, it couldn't be better. It was comfortable and well maintained and had every home comfort. Would happily give 10/10

  • "Very comfortable stay in a convenient location with the added bonus of a parking space."

    Good area to stay but especially in the summer for families wanting a beach holiday as it is a short distance to a wonderful safe well kept sandy beach with shallow water for small children.

This excellently located apartment is within strolling distance of all that Swanage has to offer, as well as excellent walking along the South West Coast Path for further exploring this historic coastline.

Once you've travelled up the flights of stairs past the shared entrance hallway, find Swanage Town Apartment's front door and be welcomed into your holiday home.

Head down the hall and into the open-plan living space, with an abundance of light from the duel aspect windows, you can relax in this contemporary space after fun days on the beach, with a sofa and an armchair to sink into set positioned around the large flatscreen TV.

A modest dining area serves as the perfect place to begin the day with a hearty breakfast, with the fitted kitchen host to all you need for a self-catered stay, including an induction hob, electric oven and a fridge/freezer.

The beach is backed by a promenade and is lined with seaside amusements like mini-golf, fairground rides, and arcades, as well as Swanage Museum and the 19th century Victorian Pier which has a maritime museum and a café.

Follow along the South West Coast Path and come across several excellent viewpoints and landmarks like the Prince Albert Gardens overlooking the town, the Wellington Clock Tower, expansive seascapes from Peveril Point, and further down on the edge of Dunston Country Park, The Great Globe, an amazing sculpture set on the south-east point.

For the traditional seaside holiday experience, the famous Swanage steam railway train will take you to the ancient ruins of Corfe Castle.

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.
