The property

Centrally positioned in the seaside town of Swanage, Dorset, is Polly's Folly, a fabulous four-bedroom property.

Just a stone's throw away from the beach and a host of eateries, shops, and attractions, whilst offering flexible sleeping arrangements, and a bright and stylish open-plan living space, the cottage welcomes eight guests, perfect for larger families.

Enter the living space, possible to use as your social hub, where you can prepare delicious meals with the help of state-of-the-art appliances, dine around the inviting table, and relax upon the plush corner sofa with the woodburning stove rustling in the backdrop; be wowed by a mix of stylish and rustic interiors.

Head outdoors if you'd prefer an alfresco affair, offering an elevated position to dine and cheers to your getaway.

As the night draws in, locate one of four well-presented bedrooms, including a king-size, a double, a twin, and a bunk room, suitable for all groups, along with a bathroom and a shower room for convenience.

Come morning, prepare for an adventure-filled day out following the walking trails of the Purbeck Heritage Coast, touring Swanage Museum, or enjoying a true seaside affair at Swanage Pier Trust and beach.

For fun for all the family, head to K’s Funworld Swanage, where there is something for everyone before travelling across the River Forme Path, leading towards Redcliffe Farm, or immerse yourself in the past at Corfe Castle where you can meander through the ruins of the impressive 12th-century castle, which also frequently hosts a variety of seasonal events.

Poole is also dotted with attractions for all including Polar Bear Fishing Trips, Poole Museum and Poole Park, where you can enjoy a picnic in the sunshine or head to the local boating lake.

Experience all of this and more at Polly's Folly.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £750.

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.
