The Isle of Purbeck region

Close to Swanage is the market town of Wareham and picturesque villages such as Lulworth and Corfe Castle. The Swanage steam train can be taken to visit Corfe Castle, a beautiful historic place of interest. Purbeck is the eastern gateway to the Jurassic Coastline.

Studland is a stunning area of natural beauty with something for everyone from extreme relaxation to biking, horse riding, cycling and walking to keep any enthusiast busy. The flat was built in 2010 so offers modern facilities coupled with timeless views and experiences. We would really recommend the steam train journey from Swanage to Corfe Castle which is a beautiful National Trust property.

Purbeck is a haven for other outdoor activities such as walking, horse riding, cycling and nearby Poole harbour offers kite surfing and windsurfing for the more adventurous.


Swanage boasts a beautiful blue flag award winning beach (2010) in a picturesque setting. It as all weather attractions as well as all year round entertainment.

It is host to many events during the year - carnivals, Purbeck Film Festival, Dorset Food Week, Jazz, Folk and Blues Festivals, Nature themed events, Conservation Volunteering, Guided Walks, Art Exhibitions, Outdoor theatre, Water Sports such as waterskiing, sailing.

And to help you unwind after a hard days holidaying, there are some lovely pubs and restaurants just down the road from the apartment. Or if you don't fancy going out, you can enjoy the relaxation of the apartment and the views of the town and bay.

"Lovely apartment"

Thanks so much for putting your thoughts down for us and other visitors, I'm glad you had a great stay at our apartment. Another option for securing the door from escaping children may be to lock it with the keys and keep them out of the way? Good comment though, we will look into it next time we visit. Many thanks.

"Great location and views"

We stayed at Penlu 5 for 3 nights. As a family of 4 we had plenty of room to spread out and the kids loved the toys and books at the apartment. We found a couple of things were missing during our stay… More

Thanks for making the time to write your comments, we really appreciate feedback from our visitors. Without living close by, it is difficult to ensure that all the basics are covered for each new visitors. You do make a great comment though and I will adjust the information letter to clarify what visitors can expect so that they can plan to bring items they think that they might need. The windows can be opened from the top to allow much better ventilation, I'm sorry you didn't know that and have included it in the welcome folder at the apartment. Thanks again for your comments and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay.

"Good but could be very good"

Thank you so much for taking the time to do a review of your stay at our apartment. It is always so helpful to get feedback, positive and negative. I will certainly look into the toilet roll situation, this should be put out during the changeover so I will enquire as to why it wasn't. The bunk bed comfort is something we will also address. We haven't stayed there for a few months and would normally have children sleeping in the bunks, but it is very helpful to hear comments from an adult sleeping there, thank you. I do hope these things didn't prevent you from enjoying your stay.
