The Isle of Purbeck region

Purbeck is home to one of the South West England's most unspoiled coastal and rural landscapes and yet is within easy reach of London and Midlands, perfect for year-round holidays and short breaks.

Most of Purbeck lies within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty as well as being part of England's only natural World Heritage Site, designated for its outstanding geological interest.

With sandy beaches such as Studland and Swanage and rocky coves such as Lulworth and Kimmeridge, it's a perfect place for the whole family to enjoy the mild climate.

Swanage Bay

Swanage has many local attractions but if you prefer to explore there are also a number of days out on the doorstep. Travel on the chain ferry to Poole or explore the islands of the harbour stopping off at Brownsea Island the home of the scouting movement or the protected birds at Arne. The seaside town of Bournemouth is only an open topped bus ride away.

"We loved Beachcomber Holiday Apartments"

This place is located perfectly close to the beach and the town centre. Everything you'll need during your stay you'll find in Swanage and the beach istself is so nice. There are also a lot… More

Thank you so much for such a lovely review!! It is always great to hear that guests have enjoyed their stay at Beachcomber - and also Swanage itself.

We look forward to seeing you when you visit Swanage again.

"Perfect location, great apartment- Wonderful weekend!"

This was our second stay at Beachcomber Apartments (before we stayed in the 1 bedroom apartment). This time we took friends and stayed in a 2 bed, which was perfect for two couples, with nice large be… More

Many thanks for such a great review.

It is good to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and your time in Swanage.

We are fortunate to have a wonderful location - 100 metres to the beach and off road parking (a real plus in Swanage!).

It is always a good sign when guests return again and again. We already have bookings for next summer from guests who have been staying with us for years now. We never take that for granted!

Good Points: Very clean & comfortable bed. Bad Points: No heating (had to buy a heater), No chairs to sit on, Both bedside table lamps not working, No hot water in wash basin. Shower fluctuated - fro… More

It feels very unfair to give such a poor review for such a lovely room, in a great location. I was on site all weekend to help with any queries but was not approached.

So glad that this guest appreciated the positive aspects of his stay - clean comfortable bed - great location. Newly decorated room with new bedlinen.

It would have been helpful if the guest had contacted me - I was here all weekend. I could have helped with the light bulbs and shower.

This is not an apartment - it is a double bedroom with en-suite. There is a bed, bedside cabinets, warbrobe, chest of drawers, t.v. and a small table with a kettle for making hot drinks. The room was never advertised as having any other furniture. A one bed apartment was available for those dates with a kitchen and living room.

There is a radiator in the room which is controlled thermostatically. We were still having wonderful weather in Swanage that weekend - the heating only comes on once the temperature has dropped to 25C. This could have been overridden if asked. There was no request for this.

There is always a supply of spare light bulbs. I was on site all weekend.

The shower is electric - there has not been a problem before - I have checked it and not found a problem with using it.

The code for the keysafe was emailed the day prior to arrival.

The apartments are very competitively priced for the area.

On the plus side - good location, very clean, off-street parking space, but overall, property was barely adequate - not up to the standard I'd expect for the moneyMain problems: impossible to con… More

Sorry to hear that your apartment was lacking in crockery. I did see this guest and asked if they were having a nice stay and was everything satisfactory with the apartment.
This guest did not ask for any kitchen equipment - although this could have been provided immediately.
Apparently the apartment was fine and they were having a great time.

The sofabeds are both new and very comfortable. One of the sofas does not have cushions on it - it is solid - there is nothing that 'slips'.

The shower is very easy to operate. Again if there was a problem I could have shown how to adjust the temperature.
This review seems a little unfair.

"Perfect Holiday"

This was our third stay at apartment 2, Beachcombers, and it was as good as ever. We love this place. The location, the quiet, the large comfortable rooms, the walks, the railway, the town, the beach… More

Thank you for such a lovely review - it is always lovely to get a pat on the back! Always good to have guests wanting to come back to stay here, and get to know people who love Swanage as much as we do.

"great place to stay for small kids"

Many thanks for such a lovely review. It is always a pleasure to see a young family enjoying their time together.

"Mostly a bright, spacious apartment"

We stayed in Apartment 2 on the first floor. Booking process was easy, although we didn't have an actual booking form. When we arrived at the apartment, the key wasn't in the designated bo… More

Many thanks for your positive review.

We are always pleased to know that guests would like to return to stay here.

So sorry that there were some cleaning issues with the kitchen. These points could have been remedied had we known. There is normally a waste bin in the bathroom.

Andy and myself are always happy to meet guests and ask if everything is okay. We did meet the guests during their stay but unfortunately nothing was mentioned. If there is anything that we can do then this is not a problem.

The booking form was emailed but no reply received.

The keys are put into the keysafe 3 o'clock onwards on the day of arrival. The apartments are always ready for that time.

Apartment 1 has a washing machine, the other apartments do not. There is a fantastic service wash in Swanage for the apartments without a washing machine.

Many thanks for such a great review. Always pleased to hear that people have enjoyed their stay with us and their holiday in Swanage. This guest has enjoyed her stay so much that she has booked again with us.

"Absolutely okay - no more, no less."

We stayed in apartment 4 of Beachcomber holiday apartments. It was okay, no more, but also no less. Number 4 is a one-bedroom flat but you can also use the sofabed in the living-room. We never really … More

We do provide great accommodation with parking and 100 metres to the beach.
We don't provide cleaning products or food. If we did then we would obviously have to add this to our price structure and indeed increase the price to guests. We do provide a roll of toilet paper for when guests arrive.
The guests were from Germany where food and cleaning products are maybe supplied?
We did meet guests on their first day here to give them the extra bedding. They were very happy with the apartment.

"Lovely, clean apartment very close to Swanage Beach"

Stayed in apartment 3. Very clean and fresh towels/bed sheets provided for us. Kitchen was spacious with all cooking equipment and utensils. Apartment is about 1 mn to the beach and 10mn to the town c… More

Many thanks for such a great review. It is always so good to hear such positive comments. We have worked very hard since we took over the apartments last year - we are very proud of the apartments. Of course the location is amazing!
