The property

There is a magnificent three-bedroom property in the seaside town of Swanage in Dorset, Lobster Lookout.

Within the Dorset AONB, Lobster Lookout is a wonderful dog-friendly home for a group or family of six to enjoy a relaxing getaway along the coast.

When you arrive, you'll find off-road parking for three small cars, so you can unload your bags with ease.

Step into the light and spacious open-plan living area, where you can prepare wonderful meals for your family to enjoy at the six-person table or alfresco out on your private patio.

Why not unwind on the sun loungers with a good book or a drink of your choice after dinner?

After dinner, kick-back and relax on the plush sofas in the sitting room to enjoy a family movie night over a bowl of popcorn with your loved ones.

Adding to the convenience of the ground floor is a cloakroom/utility area that has a washing machine and tumble dryer.

Climb the stairs up to the first-floor, where you will find three beautifully decorated bedrooms for when sleep calls.

In the morning, prepare for the day ahead in style with a soak in the bath or a refreshing shower before heading out.

Head to Swanage Beach, where you can soak up the rays, cool off in the sea, or learn more about the area at the local maritime history at the Victorian Swanage Pier Trust.

You can also get a bite to eat at the café or book a boat excursion from the pier.

At Gee Whites Seafood Restaurant and Sea Breeze Restaurant, you may savour the best of fresh seafood, while at The White Horse and Red Lion, you can tuck-in to pub favourites.

Be sure to visit in July, when you can attend the town's popular Jazz Festival!

Take a journey on the historic Swanage Railway and experience exceptional views for 6 miles.

Visit the stunning Durlston Country Park and National Nature Reserve, where you'll be able to see the local wildlife and explore the visitor centre and gallery housed in a former Victorian Castle.

Visit the RSPB Arne and Wareham Golf Club for more wildlife-filled hiking and putting.

Continue onto Poole, where you can go for a picnic in Poole Park, see the Poole Museum, take a boat to Brownsea Island, or drive across to Sandbanks Beach for a fun-filled day with views of the English Channel from the renowned Sandbanks Beach.

About the location


Wareham 9.7 miles; Poole 20 miles.

The small, family-friendly seaside resort of Swanage is situated at the eastern end of Dorset’s famous Jurassic Coast, on the celebrated Isle of Purbeck and is probably best known for its wonderful, gently shelving golden sands. The little town offers visitors plenty of shops, good pubs and restaurants, some of which specialise in locally caught seafood, and is also well known for its annual jazz festival, which takes place each July. The attractive, Victorian wooden pier offers a great place for a stroll or try fishing, and often used a departure point for divers, it’s a wonderful place to watch the world pass by. The historic Swanage Railway has its terminus in the town and regular nostalgic steam engine trips take tourists for a picturesque 6-mile journey, chugging through lovely countryside to stop just beyond the romantic ruin of Corfe Castle. Nearby Durlston Country Park offers a lovely day out with spectacular coastal walks, dolphin spotting and wildlife watching, together with comfortable viewing points and a well-stocked cafe for a treat after all the fresh air. Take the short drive to Studland, which has one of the finest beaches in the country, surrounded by heathland, together with the regular chain ferry, which crosses the mouth of Poole Harbour to Sandbanks. This truly is a delightful holiday destination at any time of the year.

Please note: In the garden, there is a drop from the lawned area down to the patio, please ensure young children are supervised at all times. There are also steep steps up to the lawn, please take care.
