    “Poppy cottage is a lovely place to stay in Swanage.”

    Generally the accommodation is good, very comfortable bed, lovely sitting room, the kitchen is small but adequate. The shower is very very small and I would not agree with the description as a walk in shower, my husband is over six feet tall and it’s a struggle to turn around in it. As the cottage is located high up off the high street we did struggle to find it at first. I think it would be better to tell guests to access the property off Priests Road as u can then unload there before ...

As the cottage is located high up off the high street we did struggle to find it at first. I think it would be better to tell guests to access the property off Priests Road as u can then unload there before finding a parking space. Would definitely recommend this cottage and the staff at Sykes cottage were very helpful.

The property

Enjoying a wonderful position at the eastern end of the Jurassic Coast, amidst the hustle and bustle of Swanage is the quaint, terraced property, Poppy Cottage.

This charming retreat is perfect for a small family or group of friends seeking a base in which to call home as they explore the dramatic beauty of the Jurassic Coast and the plethora of things to do within the area.

Enter the cottage and be welcomed into the real home from home sitting room, where the character exudes from the exposed stone-built fireplace, housing a charming woodboring stove.

Look forward to snuggling down on a winter’s evening as you tune into the TV and catch up on your favourite shows or become captivated in that good book that you have been meaning to read for so long.

Move through the property and head into the kitchen, where you can rustle up some tasty dishes to be enjoyed at the dining table whilst you plan your holiday days ahead.

On the ground floor you find a shower room to freshen up in with walk-in shower, basin and WC.

When sleep calls, make your way upstairs where you will find a choice of two bedrooms; a double and a twin, which will be a well-deserved rest after a busy day exploring the local area.

Step outside onto the patio area, complete with table and chairs, where you can sit and relax in the warmer months and your canine companion can let off some energy.

Head into the centre of Swanage, where you will be delighted to find independent butchers, bakers, fishmongers, farm shops and supermarkets, accompanied by a range of pubs for that well-deserved pint or fine dining restaurants to sample freshly caught seafood.

If you are visiting during Regatta and Carnival Week, look forward to the lively atmosphere of a Caribbean-style event with dancing, music, and spectacular fireworks.

Attractions from the cottage includes the Swanage Railway, where you can hop on board a stream train, taking you through the beautiful Purbeck countryside and past Corfe Castle and back to the sandy beach of Swanage.

Stroll the characterful pier of Swanage before you soak up the sunshine at the beach or uncover the town’s past at the museum to gain an insight of the dinosaurs that once walked the Jurassic Coast.

Head out of town to discover more of the Jurassic Coast, recognised by the UNESCO for its outstanding geology, offering spectacular cliff top walks to discover the geology of 185 million years and breath-taking coastal views.

With both coast and countryside of Dorset awaiting to be discovered, Poppy Cottage is the perfect place to bring your loved ones to at any time of the year.

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.
