Situated in the narrow, stone streets of old Swanage, with only a short walk taking you down to the sandy beach, this fisherman’s cottage makes an excellent family base.
Providence Cottage is less than a one minute walk from the sea, and is attractively located in the narrow streets of old Swanage - a small coastal resort. This is a traditionally built, stone Purbeck property, Grade II listed, and was originally a Fisherman's cottage. Within a five-minute walk visitors can enjoy almost all the amenities Swanage has to offer, with its attractive Victorian pier, its sandy beach which is ideal for paddling, swimming and boating, its seaside entertainment, plus a variety of boutique style shops, wine bars, public houses and restaurants. There is also easy access to the Steam Railway which links Swanage with the historic village of Corfe Castle, plus bus services to the Purbeck villages, Corfe Castle, Wareham, Poole and Bournemouth. Visitors may also appreciate having a private parking space next to the cottage in the centre of Swanage.
