    “Lovely property, well equipped and comfortable.”

    Contains modern kitchen, shower room and bathroom. Decor needs updating in places but has been very clean both times we have stayed here. We are highly likely to stay here again. Bit of a walk to town and beach, ok going down but coming back either up a long hill or shortcuts up steep paths. Great for fit people not so good if you have mobility issues like me, but that won't stop us staying again.

The property

This wonderful three-bedroom home, Sundial, is located in Swanage, a coastal village in Dorset.

Sundial accommodates six guests and one well-behaved dog and is close to the well-known Jurassic Coast and a variety of neighbourhood amenities.

It is ideal for both families and groups of friends, offering ground-floor living spaces, an enclosed garden, and a private driveway.

The cottage has a stylish kitchen that is well-suited for self-catering, where you can rustle up some delectable meals that are ready to savour around the six-seater dining table; plush sofas, homey decor, and a TV can also be found in the living/dining space, which is ideal for getting the whole family together.

A lush lawn and an enclosed garden are available outside; this space is welcoming of an afternoon picnic and some sunbathing.

As sleep beckons, travel to one of the three roomy bedrooms, one of which is on the ground- floor king-size with a nearby shower room, while the other two—a further king-size and a twin—and the main bathroom—are on the first floor.

Make the most of the many services and attractions available outside Sundial, including beach strolls, dining at Sea Breeze Restaurant, and the 1859 Pier Cafe & Bistro.

A short distance away is Swanage Museum, which is great for learning about local history, Purbeck Heritage Coast and Swanage Pier Trust, great locations for outdoor enthusiasts, providing expansive views of the Dorset coastline.

Well worth a visit is Wareham, a riverside town, just a short drive away.

You should also visit Wareham Town Museum while you're there, and the more adventurous members of your group might enjoy the large inflatable assault course at Dorset Adventure Park, which is located on Arfleet Mill Lake.

As you approach Poole, take advantage of the lakeside strolls along the pier, visit Poole Quay to take in the lively harbour, or visit the serene Scaplen's Court Museum and Garden, a 15th-century structure showcasing some of the county's history.

Bring your loved ones to Sundial to enjoy a trip to Dorset.

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.
