    “Really enjoyed our visit made extremely welcome by Gill ( the owner) had a previous conversation with her about a bakery in Swanage and Gill went to the trouble to buy a Dorset Bloomer for us.”

    The wild deer in the garden were an extra attraction for us and our two dogs. Would throughly recommend Coombe Orchard for a holiday.

The property

Coombe Orchard is a beautifully finished stone built, self-contained annex situated on the outskirts of Swanage, Dorset.

This cosy holiday cottage is perfect for a couple wanting a hideaway to escape to and experience Dorset's wonderful coastal and rural delights.

Guests comfort is a priority as is presentation with well-coordinated eye-catching furnishings and fittings.

It has the advantage of a large garden where you may eat alfresco or relax in the sun.

The property is all on one level, the entrance hall leads on to a small utility area and to the open plan living area of kitchen, lounge and dining area, with an open plan bedroom leading off the main living area.

Within a 15 minute walk is a shop stocking provisions, two pubs - The Kings' Arms, which offers local ales and food and The Royal Oak.

Just a couple of miles away is the popular resort of Swanage with its array of shops and award winning golden sandy beach.

Swanage boasts a variety of cuisines, but do try a Dorset cream tea and other local produce, especially freshly caught fish.

There are villages all around worth a visit such as Corfe, popular for its castle and Lulworth with its pretty and unique cove.

Coombe Orchard is an ideal location for two people looking for a coastal property in Dorset close to amenities and stunning walks.

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.
