Ideally positioned in Swanage just a couple of minutes from the beach, and all the amenities within the town is our holiday home, Swanage Driftwood. This detached beautifully presented home has five bedrooms, two private courtyard style patios and three bath / shower rooms and been furnished to a high standard. Swanage is a family seaside resort with a fine sandy beach, good choice of shops and numerous places to eat, all within walking distance of Swanage Driftwood. The property itself is a family friendly stone cottage, suitable for children of all ages and equally as comfortable for a family of four as it is for ten. Swanage Driftwood is so well placed that there is no need for a car to access the beach or town. On balmy summer evenings you can enjoy a glass of wine outside in one of the many bars, on cold winter days you can huddle inside one of the many pubs that offer open fires and a friendly atmosphere. You have a choice of high-class restaurants, good pub food, and Italian styled bistros. Children will love building sandcastles on the main beach (three minutes' walk) or crabbing along the water's edge at the stunning Peveril Point. Step back in time as you travel on the Swanage steam railway to Corfe Castle. Dogs can be walked for miles on the headland, which has stunning views and is less than two minutes away.
However, if you wish to venture further out for a day and explore, there are many options all surrounded by the beautiful Purbeck hills and coastline. Marvel at the scenery from the top of Corfe Castle, walk around the old Saxon walls of Wareham to the quay and perhaps take a boat trip to Poole harbour. There are walkways and cycleways around the Purbeck countryside taking you off the beaten track. The surfers bay of choice when the seas suit is nearby Kimmeridge Bay, for those seeking sandy dunes, Studland beach is idyllic. The National Trust Brownsea Island is a perfect location for a picnic; catch a boat from Poole Harbour for a special day out. The nearby attractions of Bovington Tank Museum and Monkey World are both in easy reach of the property, as are the major shopping centres of Poole and Bournemouth via the Studland chain ferry.
