Seaglimpse is a delight. Attention to detail in the decor, furnishings and equipment is a joy. From the minute we opened the front door the welcome was apparent. Everything we could possibly want was there. Not just for adults but dogs too. The location is perfect, a short walk to the beach and town and everything Swanage has to offer. I cannot recRead moreommend Seaglimpse highly enough. Hide

We were very comfortable in this property and would seriously consider a return another year which is something we have never done before . I was a little concerned about the allocated parking space having just acquired a bigger car but it looked as if the other apartments were not taken when we were there so there was room for error !
