Stunning cottage conversion situated in the heart of the coastal town of Swanage, just a short walk from the picturesque sandy beach.
Located close to the centre of Swanage, this quaint and cheerful Grade II-listed property makes a lovely hideaway for a couple or a small family wanting to enjoy this beautiful part of Dorset. The cottage is one of several properties – including the nearby Ship Inn – which have been converted from the town’s Ship Hotel and has been beautifully furnished and decorated. The golden sandy beach is just a few hundred metres away and there are plenty of great restaurants, pubs, tea rooms and shops nearby.
On entering this pretty cottage, you will find yourself in the welcoming and attractive open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. The cosy lounge has plenty of seating so you can enjoy a movie or a catch up with a good book. There’s a charming dining area, and the stylish kitchen is perfect for preparing any meal. Heading upstairs there are two charming bedrooms with oak floors. The double room has a TV/DVD, and the twin room can be made up as a 6’ double on prior request. A door from the first-floor landing leads out onto the small open courtyard seating area which is shared with the neighbouring properties and provides a lovely spot for a morning coffee.
The cottage is perfect for exploring Swanage and is just a few hundred metres from both Stone Quay and the Victorian-era pier. The beautiful Studland Beach lies to the north (4 miles), or you can head south to explore Durlston Country Park (1 mile). Other local attractions include Corfe Castle (6 miles), Brownsea Island (7 miles) and the Hartland Moor National Nature Reserve (8.5 miles). There are numerous beautiful beaches nearby including Kimmeridge Bay (11.5 miles) and Chapman’s Pool (5.5 miles), or you could discover landmarks and attractions including Smedmore House (9 miles), Dancing Ledge (3 miles) and Old Harry Rocks (4 miles).
