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.

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.

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.

"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.

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.
