Perfectly situated on the seafront with wonderful panoramic sea views. Enjoy the fun seaside town of Swanage and explore the spectacular Jurassic coastline.
Seascape stands within a stones throw of the sea and enjoys spectacular open views of the water from several rooms. These views are panoramic, extending across the whole bay from Ballard Down on the East to the westward extremity of Peveril point. The sandy beach of Swanage bay is only a half minute walk away. Here visitors can enjoy swimming, paddling and boating. Swanage is a traditional seaside resort with Punch and Judy shows, amusements and a Victorian pier. Alongside this, there is a diving centre and a variety of interesting shops, restaurants and public houses. These are all within a two or three minute walk. The town is also renowned for its steam railway which links the seaside town to the historic village of Corfe Castle.
The property is adjacent to the coastal path and visitors can walk along the promenade and over Ballard Down into Studland with its sand dunes and four miles of golden beach. The walk westwards leads to Durleston and extends onwards along a beautiful stretch of Purbeck coastline passing close to several traditional villages. Worth Matravers provides a pleasant place to stop with a traditional public house with Purbeck ciders.
