Located half a mile from the heart of Swanage, this welcoming ground-floor apartment makes a perfect holiday home for a couple or small family looking to make the most of this stunning part of Dorset. This delightful holiday home is situated just above the town on the steep hill leading down to Durlston Country Park, just one of the many beautiful places for you to explore in the Purbeck region. With far-reaching views across Swanage Bay, this is an idyllic spot, ideal for relaxing in after a day exploring the Jurassic Coast.

This bright and charming single-level accommodation is set on the ground floor of an attractive house. A shared hall leads through to the cosy and inviting open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. In the lounge you can snuggle up on one of the sofas and enjoy a movie, while the dining area is perfect for sharing a favourite meal. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you may need. You will find a double bedroom with an en-suite shower room. There’s also a bunk bedroom and a separate bathroom. Stepping outside you can sit back and unwind on the large decked area to the front of the property. Here you can relax with a drink in the evening and admire the tranquil sea views.

Durlston Country Park is within a mile and has hundreds of acres to explore, with plenty to see including the Tilly Whim Caves, Anvil Point Lighthouse and the Great Globe. The park is also a haven for hundreds of species of butterflies, birds and wildflowers. Swanage is known for its long sandy beach, traditional promenade and Victorian pier. The town also has a fantastic range of pubs, cafes, restaurants and shops. Local attractions include Dancing Ledge (3 miles), Old Harry Rocks (4 miles) and Corfe Castle (6 miles).

Our 3 rd visit to Tilly Whim and it wont be out last. Apartment is family friendly and very clean. The location is 10 min walk to the beach and about 5 min walk to durlston which was brilliant for us as a young family. Nice touch of tea, milk and biscuits on arrival.

Generally a very nice apartment. At only 3 it was worth every penny getting a taxi back up the hill from the railway station after shopping at the coop.

The accommodation was very well decorated and clean the location is fine if you dont need to walk into the town which is down steep hills. However the views from the lounge were great and the location is close by Durlston Country Park which is a great place to go and enjoy the views and walks.

Both the accommodation and the location have been perfect. Stunning views and a very convenient location! The hosts have been very kind and accommodating, and the place was spotlessly clean and had everything required for a comfortable stay. We would love to go back to Tilly Whim next summer!

Lovely bright airy flat with all the amenities you could need for a family break. Surprisingly far reaching sea views the brochure photos simply don't do it justice. The property is well situated for exploring the lovely durlston park and Swanage itself. I would recommend this property for a family getaway and we may even rebook ourselves.

It could no doubt have been much better designed and situated on a steep hill may not suit everyone however we did not let that spoil our enjoyment of the week and as usual enjoyed our holiday in Swanage and the Isle of Purbeck.

This was a lovely apartment, the views over Swanage Bay were fantastic. We visited in the winter but the flat was toasty warm. Smudge, my Jack X, enjoyed being able to walk from the door up onto Durlston Country Park. We come here again.

Great location for the town, headland and close to Durlston Country Park but steep hill walk from the town.
