The West Country 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.

"Good but could be very good"

The apartment is nice, clean and well equipped even with toys and games with modern lift access and parking. The free Wi-Fi was great. The location is walking distance from the shops but an steep-ish … More

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.

Thanks so much for you lovely review and we are glad that you had a great week at our apartment, we do try to keep a few essentials (like toilet roll and dishwasher tabs) to get you through your first day or so, but don't live locally so are not always successful....and like you comment, the local store is very convenient....thanks again for taking the time to comment to assist future holiday makers and hope you get the chance to visit again.
