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

Lovely well equipped and clean apartment with views of the Downs. On the edge of Swanage and about 0.5 mile walk to centre though there are a couple of hotels, a nice pub and a local shop within a few hundred yards of the property. The hotels allow non residents for food and drink. A great place to stay. We enjoyed our visit very much and would staRead morey in this apartment again if we came back to Swanage. Hide

Very comfortable and well-equipped in a fairly quiet location. Convenient for walks along the coast path, and close to the town. In the evenings it was great to sit with the french doors open, looking over towards Ballard Down.

This is the second year we have stayed at this apartment. It is very clean and tidy. There is a lift that you can use if you have mobility problems. It is equipped with everything you need. Wonderful view from the balcony over the hills. A short walk downhill to the beach. About 10-15 minutes walk to the main shopping street. Only problem you mightRead more have is if you have a large car as the parking space is very tight. Hide

Lovely comfortable apartment in a quiet residential area within walking distance to coastal path, beach and town. Very well equipped for self catering and overall comfort. Milk, teas, fresh flowers, biscuits and message from the housekeeper were a welcoming touch on arrival. We wanted for nothing.

This second floor apartment was immaculate. Could have just been built although I was advised by another tennant that it was 12 years old. Everything was provided, right down to milk in the fridge, lovely biscuits and a host of other nice touches, going above and beyond. The property has a lift, making it accessable to less able people.
