  • "We regularly stay in Swanage and we can say that Quarriers is by far the best location we have stayed in."

    Fantastic location, wonderfully kitted out and we felt very much at home from the moment we stepped in. Parking is the norm in Swanage but we managed to park outside after the first day. We really look forward to returning. Thanks also for being dog friendly, Gracie definitely approved.

    Wonderful facilities and not a speck of dust or dirt in sight. The cottage is tranquil whilst also being close to all of the amenities. We would definitely consider staying here again.

  • "This property looks like it has recently been refurbished, with immaculate paintwork and all the fixtures and fittings in excellent condition."

    Downstairs, the sofa is and chair are very comfortable and the equipment in the kitchen is of a very good standard and is very well equipped. Even a Weber barbecue on the back garden. The garden is fully enclosed and dog secure. Upstairs, the beds are very comfortable with a good amount of space in the rooms. The bathroom is especially nice, very spacious with a corner bath and a very large separate shower. Ours was a very enjoyable stay, we would definitely stay here again.

  • "The property was great."

    Spotlessly clean, comfortable, lovely calm colours. Parking was a bit of an issue, but we managed - cheering when we grabbed a spot outside the house on the last night! Oh and there was no milk pan so scrambled eggs took three days to clean the pan!!

    Thanks so much for your feedback - you were my first guests - so I’m really pleased you liked the property and were comfortable and had a relaxing time. Yes - nonstick milk pan is on my list - good suggestion - and thanks for working so hard to clean up. Property Owner

The property

Set at the heart of the coastal town of Swanage, Dorset, lies this delightful, two-bedroom holiday home, Quarrier's Rest.

With terrific access to nearby amenities and attractions, as well as child-friendly on-site facilities, this property makes a fantastic base for families seeking a fun-filled, self-catered escape to the south coast of England.

Inside, be charmed by tasteful interiors that are on full show in the fully-equipped kitchen.

Here, the chosen chef will find everything they'll need to prepare delicious, home-cooked meals whilst the rest of the family look on from the comfort of an adjacent living/dining room, complete with plush sofas, dining table, and a TV - a great spot to catch-up on the day's events or stick a film on as the evening grows darker.

As you grow tired, treat yourself to an indulgent soak in the bath before retiring to one of the well-presented double bedrooms, an idyllic haven where you can rest and rejuvenate ahead of another exciting day.

After you've savoured your morning coffee on the peaceful rear patio, you'll find a wealth of things to do in your local area, such as taking a walk along the Victorian locale of Swanage Pier Trust or the scenic chalk cliffs of the Purbeck Heritage Coast; spending all your spare coppers at K’s Funworld Swanage; or even just sunbathing on lush sands of the Swanage Beachfront.

Further afield to the north is the town of Poole, where you can find the parks and gardens of Hamworthy Park and Harbourside Park, both locations ideal for a serene walk on a sunny afternoon.

The surrounding Dorset AONB also offers a plethora of noteworthy destinations, including the Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens and the National Trust landmark of the Hardy Monument.

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.
