This property is ideally located, in the heart of Swanage but not on a road so all you hear is the sound of the sea! The open view across the sea to the Isle of Wight is stunning - it was worth getting up at...More

Additional amenities & feature info
The apartment offers you the chance to enjoy all the charm and facilities of a little seaside town within a few minutes walk and when you're tired at the end of a lovely summer's day you can retire to your own apartment, relax and watch the world go by from the seclusion of your own home.

If you like, you can walk out for a meal in one of the many town's restaurants/pubs or venture further afield to a village inn or take the car ferry across the mouth of Poole Harbour to Bournemouth and Poole and take in a show/film and enjoy a late night meal afterwards.
