The Isle of Purbeck region

Visitors to Purbeck are well catered for when it comes to activities and places to visit. It lies at the eastern end of the Jurassic Heritage coast. The barn lies only fields away from Durlston country park recently designated a national nature reserve and allocated heritage lottery grants to develop a major visitor centre in the castle (due for completion in 2010)

The National Trust acquired large areas of Purbeck from the Bankes estate, including the impressive ruins of Corfe Castle and the much visited sandy beach, chalk cliffs and heathland at Studland.

Walkers and climbers have easy access to the coast which also accommodates hang gliders and paragliders from the higher slopes. Water sports are particularly popular off the Purbeck coast, including sailing and power boats, waterskiing, windsurfing, board surfing, fishing and diving.

The internationally renowned sailing centre of Poole harbour and the Solent lie not far away and Britains successful bid for Olympics in 2012 will include the sailing events to be held at Weymouth further along the coast.

Swanage and Purbeck has a micro climate and has some of the highest sun hours and average temperatures in the country. Its coastline is recognised as nationally important for its wildlife and marine species and the geology is equally important and impressive with visitors coming from around the world to study its fossils.


Popular attractions nearby include the steam railway, Corfe Castle, Studlands beautiful beach, Lulworth with its cove and castle, Thomas Hardy’s cottage, Lawrence of Arabia’s cottage and memorial, Monkey world, Bovington Tank museum and for those needing ‘retail therapy’ the shopping centres of Bournemouth, Poole, Dorchester and Weymouth are all within striking distance.

Swanage is the host for several annual festivals including The Blues festival in March, Purbeck and Dorset Art weeks in may/June, the Jazz Festival in July, Swanage Carnival (one of the largest on the South coast) in July/August, the folk festival in September, Film festival in October and Blues /roots festival in October. Local organisation and venues have other smaller events such as beer and cider festivals (The greyhound, Corfe, The Bankes Arms, Studland, The Square and Compass, Worth Matravers).

Durlston Country Park regularly organises events related to the heritage and wildlife of the Park and adjoining coast.

"Very convenient, comfortable and clean"

Excellent position for the middle of town, the beach, the pier and coastal walks. A lovely comfortable, well equipped house with plenty of room, easy parking and spotlessly clean on arrival. We highly recommend a trip to Brownsea Island via the Studland ferry: there are lots of red squirrels and they are easy to spot.

"Well equipped home from home"

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this attractive and comfortable house. The interior is tastefully decorated and the views from the lounge and master bedroom are stunning. The kitchen is very well equipped, as is the washing area (frequently used as a result of the rain making the coast path muddy). We were made to feel welcome by the owners and the neighbours are very friendly. Swanage is a traditional seaside resort that has escaped much of the commercial tourism seen elsewhere. We spent much of our time walking around the area - the views from the path up to Old Harry Rocks is breathtaking. Be aware that the area is very hilly and that even walking from the coast up to The Downs is a challenge for people more used to flatter areas.
