The property

Tucked away on a pedestrianised lane in the popular coastal town of Swanage, rests Seaforth, a semi-detached property, completely renovated to provide the ultimate escape and just a 30ft walk from the sea.

This spacious accommodation boasts a stylish sitting room where you can settle down in front of the TV to enjoy a family movie night, or relax and unwind while chatting about the fun adventures had on your days exploring the beautifully scenic local area.

The kitchen/diner is the perfect social area to carry on your conversations whilst the whole family gets involved in creating a delicious meal, from grating, slicing and dicing, in the very well-equipped kitchen.

When the day draws to an end, climb the stairs to the first floor to find the three beautiful bedrooms consisting of two doubles, one of which boasting its very own TV, and the third and final room housing a bunk bed, all exuding contemporary charm and a neutral, refreshing colour pallette, as well as being served by the sparkling family bathroom completing this floor.

Make the most of your outside space in the summer months by dining alfresco on the private patio, complete with outdoor furniture, dining table and pretty lightling, with plenty of space for your canine companions to play as you snuggle up in front of the fire pit for the perfect evening with your loved ones.

Swanage makes a wonderful choice for a seaside escape, providing amenities and attractions for all ages, all-year-round; from high street shops where you can enjoy a leisurely day of shopping to independent retailers where you're sure to find the perfect souvenir to take back home, there's plenty of ways to while away the hours, not forgetting the plethora of bars, cafés and restaurants where you can enjoy a celebratory meal in style.

Spend some time on the Blue Flag award winning beach, building sandcastles and soaking in the sun for a traditional day on the coast, before picking up some local produce from one of the shops scattered around the town, with a wide selection of treats to choose from for your family film nights.

Venture out to find the wonder of the Purbeck Hills and surrounding areas and take in all the stunning countryside scenery when you embark on a day out on the vintage steam railway, leading you past the ruins of the iconic William the Conqueror’s Corfe Castle, while the family-friendly attractions of the Bovington Tank Museum and Monkey World Ape and Rescue Centre are within driving reach too!

For a spot of retail therapy, you can catch the chain ferry from Studland Bay to the towns of Poole or Bournemouth where there is a large selection of high street shops and eateries to while away the hours.

Seaforth is a wonderfully located base for family and friends to enjoy a self-catering holiday on the beautiful Jurassic Coast, perfect for discovering all the delights that Dorset has to offer.

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.
