This first-floor cottage offers a real experience of England and a typical English seaside holiday in a famous area of natural beauty, preserved by the National Trust, also known as the Jurassic coast of Dorset - consisting mostly of cliff and open countryside. It is best suited for walks, sightseeing excursions, literary associations, safe bathing on sandy beaches, golfing, rock climbing, fishing, scuba diving and other water sports.

But Swanage and its surroundings are also rich in history from Celtic hill forts, Saxon walls, Norman castles to World War II installations. This was also the home of the famous English poet and novelist, Thomas Hardy, and the villages and towns, the hills and heathlands are rich in associations with his writings..

The cottage is available in the summer months on a weekly basis, Saturday to Saturday. A chief attraction is its location in the very heart of Swanage right on top of the beach, public transport, shops, pubs and restaurants, so you can can easily do without a car, though private parking is available.

The West Country region

Climate is temperate. Best months for visits, birds, flowers, are June through September.

Stone architecture is characteristic. Purbeck has a long tradition of stone-quarrying for house and roof construction.

Our cottages are clad in local Purbeck stone and our garden was a "stone yard" - storage place for stone-shipping near the dock - in the 19c.

Most famous monument nearby is the splendid ruin of Corfe Castle dating from Anglo-saxon times. Wareham has Saxon walls. Maiden Castle and Flower Barrow are fine Iron-age Forts once occupied by numerous Celtic farmers and townsfolk.

Purbeck area is generally considered of outstanding natural beauty. Much of it is National Trust land donated by the feudal Bankes family, who survived Cromwell's assault and destruction of their castle at Corfe and ruled a huge demesne of farm and heathland.

Hardy's birthplace cottage is well worth a visit at Lower Bockhampton near Dorchester (Casterbridge in his novels). Hardy calls Swanage 'Knollsea' in his novels, and lived here briefly when he first got married.

Many picturesque villages: Langton Matravers, Worth Matravers, Acton, Studland, Kimmeridge and Lulworth are within easy reach by bus or on foot. most of them have fine churches and interesting graveyards. The"Square and Compasss" pub at nearby village of Worth Matravers is the most historic in Dorset and has a stone-carving fair, theatricals and a fossil museum for visitors.
