  • "Bluebell apartment was a fantastic find and the best apartment that we have stayed in at Swanage!"

    It is extremely centrally located so that you can be at the beach or restaurant within a matter of a few minutes. Carolyn was the perfect host and on hand should we need her. The apartment itself is deceptively spacious and it was great to have a dining room. Having the bedrooms on a separate floor also added to the sense of space. The outdoor terrace was an absolute bonus and perfect for drying the towels and swimwear after a day on the beach. There is space outside to drop off and some free parking in Swanage but we took advantage of a week long parking pass at the long stay carpark and had factored that into the price of the holiday so that we didn't have to worry about locating space each day. Overall, we would thoroughly recommend both Bluebell apartment and Swanage as a perfect seaside escape and I am sure we will be back to both!

  • "We had a brilliant week at Bluebell Apartment."

    Everything was spot on, I would have given top marks for everything except the kitchen cooking equipment was basic. I have left my comments for Carolyn and Glenn so they are aware. They are lovely people and were helpful and friendly. The glorious weather - a bonus.

    Just one tip, if you want to eat out in Swanage on a Friday you need to book in advance !

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Bluebell Cottage."

    The apartment is very well equipped, and the outside terrace was a lovely sunny spot to enjoy an outside meal. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms are spacious. Being so central within Swanage was very useful, the shops and seafront are literally only a couple of minutes walk away. We would definitely recommend the apartment and would stay again.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at the Bluebell apartment; the location is great, being so central in Swanage means everything is just a short walk."

    It is also a very good base for exploring Studland, the Jurassic Coast and Corfe Castle. The apartment itself is spacious, clean and comfortable and we would highly recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the centre of Swanage.

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.
