Lovely victorian villa, well presented, lots of character in a good location for walks to beachfront and over Durlston Nature Reserve. A good choice of decent pubs offering good food just a short walk away. Parking on street immediately outside the house was always available.

We had an enjoyable stay at Samphire. We liked the period features of the property and found the location excellent. Parking was an issue for us when we used our car. Its just something to consider if you want to use your car. We found the property a little basically equipped in the kitchen and everything was a little tired including glasses, crockRead moreery and utensils. If like me you enjoy a glass of fizz bring your own flutes. Overall clean, but a bit tired in kitchen and bathrooms. Hide

A lovely characterful property, handy for the centre of Swanage. We enjoyed the space but did find the parking an issue - so basically left the car all week after we got a spot near to the house. With fun bus trips around Poole Harbour and train to Corfe, shops within walking distance (the Salt Pig was such a treat for local fish and meat) this wasRead moren't a big hardship though! Would say the 3rd bedroom is only really suitable for children. Hide
