This large, sea facing, Victorian villa is situated five minutes' walking distance from the award-winning beach of Swanage - the only Blue Flag beach along the entire Dorset Jurassic Coast. You can spend a restful holiday building sandcastles, paddling in the sea and sampling local Purbeck ice cream. Alternatively, adrenalin junkies might give coasteering a go on this rugged coastline.
Our hilltop location gives the front facing rooms spectacular panoramic views of Swanage town and bay. Swanage town often holds music festivals, art weeks and the Swanage Carnival every year. The Jazz Festival (July), Folk Festival (September) and Blues Festivals (March and October) are extremely popular and not to be missed!
The town is a classic British seaside resort and the perfect gateway to the Jurassic coast, a world heritage site. Swanage is also known as Little London by the sea due to all the curious architectural landmarks around the town, such as Wellington Tower which once stood at the entrance of London Bridge!
FREE WI-FI available in communal areas for guests!
