From the owner

Tucked away in a quiet position in the heart of Swanage, on the beautiful Isle of Purbeck, Taunton Cottage is perfectly situated only a two minute walk away from the safe, award-winning sandy beach, shops, cafés, pubs and restaurants. Built of Purbeck stone, the cottage is cosy, homely and full of character. It dates back to the18th Century and is set over three floors. We have a complete new kitchen and appliances for 2021. The first floor has two bedrooms, one with a King size bed the other with bunk beds. The first floor bathroom has a bath with hand held shower. The second floor bedroom has a King size bed, a seating and a dressing area and a bathroom which has a large walk in-monsoon shower. The cottage is Wifi connected. It has a small outside seating area and also its own parking space (quite a rare find in Swanage).

Loved by all who visit, the pretty Victorian town of Swanage has something for everyone. From families with children to couples who want to escape for a long weekend. If you are not watching Punch and Judy on the Blue Flag beach or crabbing from the Old Stone Quay, you can stroll to Durlston Country Park where you may get a glimpse of dolphins. You can also ride the Steam Train to Corfe Castle, stop off for a cream tea or visit one of the small local art galleries. From the cottage it is also easy to join in the fun of one of the town's events that take place throughout the year. These include the Carnival and Regatta Week (end of July), the Blues Festival (March and October), the Jazz Festival (July) and the Folk Festival (September).
