Old Steps

Condo/Apartment -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Swanage, Isle of Purbeck, Dorset, England
Old Steps is a light and spacious apartment on two floors in central Swanage less than one minute's walk from the seafront and stone quay, restaurants and shops. The owner has a beach hut which can be rented at a preferential rate. Old Steps has three good sized superior bedrooms, each with double bed, two family bathrooms and a good sized living room with large Victorian windows. Oblique view of sea and pier, recently renovated and newly furnished. Suits families and walkers.
Renovated in 2017, this Victorian property is in the heart of Swanage just under one minutes walk from the seafront. We have named the property Old Steps as it is at the top of the ancient grade 2 listed stone steps leading up into a picturesque passageway and our front door.

Much thought has been given to making your stay as comfortable as possible....
