The West Country 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 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.

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!

"Great apartment, fantastic location."

Just returned from a fantastic week in Swanage staying in Flat 2 of the Beachcomber apartments. The flat was large with a really good sized living room, two good sized bedrooms and an adequate kitchen… More

Thank you so much for your lovely review! It is always great to have such a positive feedback.

We are very proud of the apartments and Swanage itself. We took the apartments over a year ago and they were in a very poor condition! All the hardwork of renovating the apartments has paid off this summer, we have had some wonderful reviews.

It is always good to see a young family really enjoying their stay here. A great 'feel good' factor. Although we run this as a business, seeing people having such a good time is always a bonus.

"Nice flat, lot of stairs. We enjoyed our stay, nice size for two with a small kitchen."

Nice flat, lot of stairs. We enjoyed our stay, nice size for two; the kitchen is small, calling it a galley is being generous. Everything worked and the flat was clean and tidy. The shower could have a bit more water flow. The flat needs access to some sort of cloths drying facilities. The location is a couple of minutes from the beach and five/ten minutes to Swanage town center. There is a fair/average pub 50 yards up the road, the Grand and Pines Hotels are five'ish minutes' walk.

Carol and Andrew are very helpful and knowledgeable, about the local area. We are going back

Many thanks for your review. We have 2 x 2 bed apartments, 2 x 1 bed apartments and a double room. All the apartments are different sizes some with large kitchens and one apartment has enough room for a kitchen table and a dining table and three sofas. This apartment has the smallest kitchen although perfectly functional. There is another 1 bed apartment which has a kitchen at least 4 times as big as this one, but this doesn't have a sea view. This guest has requested this apartment for two weeks next year and prefers the apartment with the smaller kitchen as it has a sea view.
We would like to create access to as small garden next year so that there is room to dry clothes/towels outside.
This apartment is on the 2nd floor but there are other apartments on the ground and first floors.
We do have an amazing location - 100 metres to the beach and off road parking. Within 2 mins walk there is a wonderful restaurant/bar/tapas bar on the beach serving snacks, drinks, afternoon tea, meals in a fabulous setting. The Crows Nest pub also serves great pub food with a lovely garden.

"Lovely large rooms - great location"

On entering the property you get a nice feel as very clean, all white washed. We had the apartment on the middle floor to sleep 6 of us - one person slept in the lounge. The good points: lovely larg… More

Many thanks for such a lovely review. We do have the most amazing location - 100 metres to the beach.
We were also pleased to hear that you had such a great time staying with us. It's always good to hear people appreciate all the hard work that has gone into decorating the apartments. All have been redecorated and most have new carpets and furniture.
So sorry to hear your negative points. We did ask you to let us know when would be a convenient time to repair the curtain pole, but you didn't get back to us. It is now repaired. (I should say that we were only aware that morning that the previous guest had broken it). The kitchen floor and fridge are new but the kitchen itself is old - but clean, and was cleaned that morning. It would have been good to know at the time that there was a problem.
We have bins in the apartment - two - kitchen and bathroom. There are mirrors in the back bedroom and the bathroom. If ever there is a situation where any crockery is missing or broken it can be replaced very easily and was in this situation literally within 2 minutes - it isn't a problem. Sometimes guests break crockery and don't tell us.
We are very proud of the apartments and like to maintain them to a good standard.

"Fabulous and beyond expectations!"

We are a family of four (2 adults and 2 children, 4 and 15)and have just returned from a last minute 4 night break at the Beachcomber. We spent our stay in the 1 bedroom apartment at the very top of the house. The children shared a sofa bed in the longe area, with no problem. The view of the beach was lovely and the apartment was beautifully clean. The kitchen area was small but adequate with an oven, microwave, toaster, fridge, kettle and a breakfast bar. We only used it for breakfast. We were pleasantly surprised and loved the simple crisp clean decor. The bathroom was large with a shower, sink and loo, also room for a wardrobe and linen basket and airer for drying bits and pieces from a day on the beach. The owner Carol was really lovely..keeping in touch during our journey down there and waiting for us on arrival. Our whole experience was great from start to finish. Our only slightly negative point was the shower which gave an unpleasant needle like, experience, but this may be personal preference. ? Our little one cried and so the following nights we washed her with a jug and bowl, problem solved :) Hoping to persuade my parents to return with us next year!

Many thanks for such a great review. It is always so good to receive such positive feedback. We will check the pressure on the shower. We only get to know if there is a problem by guests letting us know. We like to keep on top of maintenance issues.

"Good location"

The room and en-suite was clean and of a good size. We appreicated the coffee & tea making facilities. We stayed over on a Saturday evening and experienced some noise from the apartment above us, as w… More

I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and look forward to seeing you again in the future. It is always good to have such positive feedback.
Saturday night was very unusual in that there were two families arriving late Saturday, one from Denmark and one from Mexico. After long journeys the children were a little excited and tired on arrival. As all the windows were open as wide as can be the noise did travel. It didn't last long.

Many thanks for such a great review. The shower is new - only installed the week before the guest stayed here, will get it checked. It is always so good to get positive feedback.

"Good location has great potential"

Well situated less than five minutes from beach.Good sized appartment light and airy decor, kitchen adequate but not great, oven and cupboards reqiured cleaning before we could use. Carpets badly sta… More

This guest enjoyed her stay and has informed us that she would like to book three apartments for next summer.

All of our apartments have been recently redecorated but whereas the others have had new carpets and furniture this apartment has not. This was pointed out to the guest upon booking. Two of the sofas are in excellent condition but I must admit that after another look another sofa and carpets would benefit from a professional clean. This is in hand.

It is always good to have feedback concerning cleaning standards, but it is easier to be told when the problem occurs so that it can be remedied at that time. If I had been told at the time I could have done something about it. I spoke to the guest during her stay and it was never mentioned. Whenever I get the opportunity to see guests I always take the opportunity to ask them if everything is okay with their apartment. It is important to both of us that people enjoy their stay with us.

It is good to know that the guest and her party did enjoy their stay with us and that the points mentioned can be remedied.

As mentioned the guest has asked to book three apartments for next summer and we will be looking forward to meeting them again.
