    “1. I think it would be helpful to state the property is over 4 floors.”

    2. Cleanliness....on arrival there were a lot of hairs in the plug of the loft room shower. Some cutlery was not clean....dishwasher's fault I guess! 3. I was surprised to find started packs of frozen food in the freezer, and lots of food in the tall drawer in the kitchen. It wasn't a problem....but a note to say whether the food was for our use or not would be helpful. 4. If possible..more room in the kitchen cupboards to put food would be helpful. 5. The mugs were a really nice ...

The mugs were a really nice selection. 6. It would be helpful to say where to find the recycling and rubbish bins....I thought it was one left on the street initially...then later discovered the right ones on the basement level patio. 7. We spent ages hunting for the hoover...more specific instructions on which cupboard to look in would be helpful. 8. Having a key safe is brilliant. 9. The location is excellent....10 to 15 mins to walk into town 10. The toilet seat in the 1st floor bathroom was quite wobbly. 11. The balcony table and chairs, with seat cushions hanging in the lounge, were great....amazing view. 12. Our children loved the TV and netflix 13. The folder with instructions for appliances was excellent. 14. The washing line was great 15. Overall we had a really nice stay. Thank you for sharing your property with us. We love Swanage and have visited many times. Would definitely consider staying in this property again.

The property

Bay View is a welcoming holiday home located in the elevated area of Swanage, Dorset.

This home is a fantastic choice for a big family get-together or a getaway with friends due to its gorgeous views from the lovely garden and an interior filled with home amenities.

When you get to the cottage, park up at the roadside before entering to start your break.

With a convenient dishwasher to assist with clean-up, a well-equipped kitchen/diner provides everything you need to cook up a family dinner to enjoy at the dining table for 10.

After dinner, challenge your friends to a game of table football in the handy utility room, then unwind in the sitting room to catch up on your favourite shows.

A king-size bed and two double beds are suitable for the couples in the group, while a family room is best for those travelling with young children and a single bed is perfect for a youngster or even a grandparent.

Take advantage of the garden area as well; the decking is a great place to have your morning coffee while taking in the view, and the lower patio is a great place for the kids to play.

When it's time to explore, make sure to walk along the pier and Purbeck Heritage Coast before arriving at Peveril Point.

Visit Studland, which is well-known for its Nature Reserve and the Old Harry Rocks, to continue your exploration.

You can travel a little farther still to the town of Bournemouth, which offers dining and shopping alternatives as well as an Oceanarium and pier for those group members who enjoy seeing marine life.

For an unforgettable getaway, bring your friends and family to Bay View.

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.
