A lovely, comfortable apartment, which provides good space for two people. We found the bedroom and lounge to be spacious. The kitchen was small, but very well provided with equipment and utensils. The bathroom was also well provided and we found no problem with obtaining comfortable water temperatures for both the bath and shower. The parking spacRead moree appeared to be quite tight, but was easy to reverse into and to drive out from. The apartment is very handy for the town and beach, easy walks. Hide

This apartment is comfortable and in a good location. It is well equipped with a balcony which was extremely necessary in the very hot week that we had. The lift is useful when arriving and departing as carrying suitcases etc may prove arduous. The no50 bus which runs from Swanage to Bournemouth and back stopping off at numerous points along the coRead moreast is highly recommended. There are very good walks around Swanage which we thoroughly enjoyed. Hide
