  • "Seaview is an absolute gem."

    The proximity to the seafront and town is a major plus point, just a couple of minutes down the hill. The house felt expansive which meant it was perfect for two families sharing without being on top of each other. It’s super clean, very well presented and welcoming. It’s clear how much effort is made to provide a comfortable stay for guests. Well equipped kitchen. We’d love to go back!

    Not wanting for any type of utensil. Would take months to read all books on offer and watch DVD’s. Games in abundance, Welcome pack much appreciated. Cannot fault in any way. Sue, Cliff & Andrea

  • "Very well located property with excellent facilities."

    Short walk to town and beach. The property was much bigger than we had anticipated and we were very comfortable. Very helpful and attentive owner who called us to give us the key safe number and was on hand throughout our stay, for any queries that we may have had. We would certainly recommend to others.

  • "This property was of a very high standard well maintained in near perfect condition."

    It was equipped with nothing required for a trouble free holiday. Comfort was a apt description. Comment:- The location gave us perfect view of Swanage Bay but I would suggest that possible clients should be in informed that the location is not suitable for elderly people due to the steep location into the town,going down no problem but returning HARD WORK.

  • "Fantastic property for family holiday."

    The accommodation was very spacious and perfect layout for extended family group. The decor was modern, with high levels of cleanliness. Everything thought of to make arrival and stay perfect. The location was good and off-road parking was a brilliant addition to the holiday let. There is a steep hill back to the property from the seafront which can be difficult for elderly members of the family.

  • "Joy and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at “Seaview”."

    It’s incredibly well equipped with many thoughtful extras including the “welcome basket” . We both slept well in excellent beds. But we did struggle with some of the modern appliances despite full instructions. Age will tell! We endorse some earlier comments such as regretting no food bin waste and no bin in the bedroom. A chair in there would have been useful as well, also a hook on both the bathroom and bedroom door. The conservatory is a wonderful facility with a pleasant outlook. We were fortunate to look out on a great array of daffodils! One practical suggestion ….put the actual conservatory key on its own, and hang the other keys on a hook to the left of the sliding doors. The driveway was a challenge, no doubt the type of car, size etc. relevant to this. But we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, not least the peace and quiet, with incredible views. Much thought put into this accommodation. Many thanks. Joy and Kathleen

  • "Fabulous cottage, immaculately presented."

    Descriptions online accurate. Owner has labelled every control on every feature making living in the house hassle-free - rare to see such care to detail. Cottage was equipped with quality fixtures, comfy beds and seating, a superb range of kitchenwear, and - also rare - manageable appliances. We know Swanage well and to have such comfort, so close to the seafront, with onsite parking too, is very rare.

  • "Lovely place."

    Great location. At the top of a steep hill, but that's it. Literally 5 mins walk into the main part of swanage and beach. Parking for 2 cars is good, having to reverse down the drive not so good, but we didn't use the car all week as so much to do in swanage itself. Property was very spacious, the owners had thought of everything. All very clean and tidy. Would definitely recommend, and definitely stay agian. Best place we've stayed in swanage.

    Thank you very much for your kind feedback and recommendation. I am so glad you had a wonderful holiday at Seaview and in Swanage. I apologise if my personal choice of reversing into Seaview has led to any confusion. To help other guests, space is available to turn a car around in the parking area outside our garage, so it is not absolutely necessary to reverse down the drive. I look forward to welcoming you back to Seaview. Property Owner

    The welcome pack was appreciated. The location for us was excellent.

It was good to have the car parking space at the cottage and we had two cars.

The property

Overlooking the coastal splendour of the sea and cliffs, situated in a desirable area from which to discover Swanage and the surrounding Jurassic Coast, Seaview is the perfect location for families to explore the Isle of Purbeck with its beautiful beaches and surrounding countryside.

The bungalow is all on one floor with off-road parking and is well-suited to a variety of group needs, with a short walk to the beach and town centre being an added delight.

You enter via the large welcoming utility room, where there is plenty of space to store all your holiday beach paraphernalia, children’s buggies, coats and shoes after a relaxing day at the beach, or a day of exploring.

Here, you will also find the washing machine.

From the utility room you enter the modern well equipped kitchen, with its sleek units housing all you could need during your stay.

Following on from the kitchen, the large dining room has wonderful views overlooking the sea and cliffs where you can enjoy cosy home cooked meals, or a wonderful fish and chip supper bought at one of the local Fish & Chip shops.

Moving through to the inviting sitting room, guests will find a plush seating arrangement to sink into, where they can watch T.V, or spend a quiet moment to themselves.

Leading off the sitting room is the bright and airy conservatory; a suntrap in the summer where you can enjoy a good book or a snooze.

Outside is a large patio area where you can sit out and make the most of the sunshine.

At the front of the bungalow is a large lawn to play games on, and a raised balcony with sea views for your evening drink.

When your fun-filled day draws to an end, seek out the three well-presented bedrooms to rest your head.

Take your pick from the family room with both a king-size double and a single bed, a master bedroom with double bed and a sea view, or a twin room with two single beds and a sea view, each with its own stylish interior and ample storage space.

Begin your day in either the bathroom with bath and separate large rain shower, or the equally convenient shower room with walk-in rain shower, offering plenty of space for guests to get ready for a day of relaxing on the beach, or exploring further afield.

The bungalow benefits from being just a short stroll away from the town's centre, where you will find a mixture of shops and choice of supermarkets, and small independent eclectic shops, selling local produce and goods.

Find a souvenir to remind you of your holiday, or search out unusual individual gifts for family and friends.

You will also find many fine restaurants, coffee shops and pubs where you can enjoy a tasty snack or a more substantial meal.

Visit Swanage Museum to learn more about the history, geology and geography of the area, or The Mowlem Theatre where you can watch a variety of wonderful shows, and films.

Take a stroll along the beautiful Victorian pier, or along the sea front with beautiful gardens and the soft, sandy Blue Flag awarded beach.

Visit the children’s play park overlooking the beach or the Santa-Fe Fun Park if you're travelling with little ones, home to a range of fun-filled activities such as mini golf, arcades, rides and more, while the Townsend Nature Reserve is the perfect way to spend a more relaxed day or a scenic walk.

Take an unforgettable trip on the steam train from Swanage railway station to the old historical village of Corfe Castle with its ruined castle fortification built by William the Conqueror (National Trust).

Take a walk to the Durlston Country Park and National Nature Reserve for even more splendour, with 33 species of breeding butterfly, over 250 species of bird recorded and 500 wildflowers to discover alongside plenty of history and educational experiences too.

If you love walking take a stroll to the Lighthouse, Dancing Ledge or Old Harry Rocks with their wonderful views over the sea.

Further afield you can drive to Lulworth Cove or Durdle Door for more spectacular walks and views.

Take a drive over to Studland for the day to find another beautiful sandy beach, as well as a ferry journey crossing the mouth of Poole Harbour to Sandbanks.

From there you can take a short boat trip to the tranquil Brownsea Island (National Trust).

Further afield is the Saxon walled market town of Wareham where you can enjoy a stroll along the river; or Dorchester, with its various museums including the Dinosaur Museum, Dorset County Museum, The Keep Military Museum and more.

It makes the perfect day trip for a historic day out, with even more eateries to choose from too.

Whatever you decide to do, Swanage is a beautiful base from which to explore the coast of Dorset, and Seaview makes a spectacular choice all-year-round.

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.
