About this listing
Our home is a comfortable modern bungalow built from traditional Purbeck Stone and set in a big garden on the outskirts of Swanage, close to the South West Coastal Path and Durlston Country Park, but just a short walk from the town and beach
We are as close as you can get to Durlston Castle and Durlston Country Park. You can walk out of our door and onto the South West Coastal Path in minutes, without even walking on a road. Yet we are only a 15 minute stroll into the very centre of Swanage, with its beautiful beach, Victorian Pier and a choice of restaurants, pubs and shops.The best of both worlds.
Guests will have access to a small kitchen, with fridge, microwave, sink and utensils. They can also use our courtyard garden for barbecues and outside space. The kitchen area is also useful for drying wet clothes and boots. Parts of the garden are off-limits.
Interaction with Guests
We tend to leave our guests alone to enjoy themselves, but are always happy to share our local knowledge of everything from bike rides to restaurants.
We love everything about Swanage. We holidayed here for years, then finally came to live here and have never regretted it for a minute.
Public transport to Swanage isn't great - the nearest mainline train is Wareham or Bournemouth, then a bus to Swanage. The bus ride from Bournemouth is pretty special, though - on an open topped bus through beautiful Studland.
This is our home, so we expect guests to respect our private space and not be too noisy. But we give them a key to come and go as they please, and there is plenty of room for all of us to enjoy. Absolutely no smoking allowed indoors and pick up your cigarette ends outdoors. No Pets.
