The property

Sealoft is a fantastic first- floor apartment in a 1930s house set in a lovely residential area of Swanage, located within a two minute walk from a glorious safe and sandy beach.

The totally refurbished apartment is ideal for five persons and within easy reach of all amenities and attractions.

Make your way through to the lovely sitting room where you will find two soft leather sumptuous sofas, an arm chair, two coffee tables, a TV and a decorative wall mounted electric fire.

Pictures adorning the walls truly confirm you are on holiday and a tantalising glimpse of the nearby sea through a small side window is bliss.

Choose from three coastal-themed bedrooms to sleep in at the end of the days’ adventures.

A wonderful large double room with a king size bed, a delightful twin bedded room and a lovely cosy single room.

There is a small but perfectly formed enclosed garden, laid to lawn with a surrounding border of flowering shrubs, a picnic table, a rotary line and a flexible hose for those sandy feet and/or muddy boots.

Also in the garden you will find a wooden gate attached to the side of the house.

When going through this gate and along the path to the front gate onto Walrond Road, please ensure that you close both gates behind you.

The path to the front gate belongs to our neighbours on the ground floor and we have right-of-way only.

About the location

SWANAGE

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.
