September is quiet at the moment so we are offering seven nights Saturday 14th to Saturday 21st September for only £1200. It's the best time of year to be in Swanage! Fantastic weather and quiet. Countryside at its best, lovely sunsets, light mornings. It's tranquil and beautiful. If you don't want 7 nights for yourself, you can always book it out and share the time with another family!

A very spacious, light, character, family house with views to Ballard Down to the rear and only a few minutes gently sloping walk to the beach. Very quietly situated in a residential road. Spacious parking for 2 cars to the side of the house. Unrestricted parking in the road outside the house.

Wide, enclosed, lawned garden, good for football/outdoor games. Barbeque and large picnic table. Very comfortably furnished, two large sitting rooms, (one for you, one for the kids!) one with French doors and verandah, both with TV and DVD. Extensive children's DVD library. Internet access. Lots of children's games - Lego, Brio railway (bring your own trains), building blocks, wooden castle and pirate ship, marble run as well as board games. Wigwam (bring your own Chieftain's gear). Boules, hoopla, croquet and bean bag targets for the garden and a house kite. We are less than 5 minutes gently sloping walk to the beach. Everything in Swanage is within easy level walking distance - shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs, mini golf, tennis courts, mackerel fishing, boat trips, boat hire, pitch and putt, children's playgrounds, crabbing, steam train, open-top buses, pier strolling, arcade, fishing, kite flying...and more! Wonderful day trips with the family to Corfe Castle (idyllic), Kimmeridge (fossils everywhere), Lulworth (castle and cove), Wareham (swimming pool, kayaking on the river, old-fashioned cinema), Tyneham (the lost village), Durdle Door, (iconic arch) Brownsea Island (Treasure Island with red squirrels and peacocks), Arne (bird watching and views of Poole harbour) and many more. It's a nature and walkers' paradise and when you book I give you a heap of information about walks and activities that might appeal.

Large, comfortable eat-in farmhouse type kitchen with AGA, window seat and views of hills. Properly equipped kitchen - Le Creuset casseroles, decent cook's knives etc. The table in the kitchen seats 6 adults comfortably, 8 is cosy and 10 is a squeeze. The house is very suitable for families and intergenerational stays and we often have children eat first then adults later. Having said that, we had New Year with adults, teenagers and younger children totalling 11 squeezed in - myself perched on a stool by the AGA. So it depends how you like it. Big front porch and generous utility room for all the beach stuff. Five bedrooms, (Superking, King and twin on the 1st floor. Two twins on the 2nd floor.) All lovely, comfy beds, no bunk beds. One very large bathroom with separate shower cubicle and bath which has two entrance doors so may be ensuite if wished. One family bathroom with hand shower and bath. Both are the original twenties fixings with big baths in oak cases. The twin bedroom on the 1st floor has a sink which helps with teeth cleaning pressures. There is an extra separate loo upstairs, There is a cloakroom downstairs sporting the original Edwardian thunderbox. (4 loos in total)

It is the perfect house if you want a classic Enid Blyton holiday. Once here you don't need the car except to do a big shop at the Co-Op (or not even that if you internet shop). The house is very suitable for two families sharing who don't want to be on top of each other and also multi-generation stays as the gentle walk to the beach is suitable for all ages. If you love walking you can join the coast path almost immediately outside the house. You can set off walking to Corfe Castle or Studland or you can catch the open top bus from the end of the road to Studland or Shell Bay and then walk back.

Although we are dog-lovers, sadly we don't accept pets visiting the house. Also, please note the beds are all made up for you when you arrive, but we do not provide towels.

Please get in touch with me via the relevant link to check on availability and exact pricing. Sometimes there is a weekend or midweek we would particularly like to sell (usually out of season) for which a slightly lower price may be available. It's worth just sending me a message!

Out of season, it is often possible to have early arrival and late departure.

Spacious family holiday home

By Jadzia Field on 29-Jul-2023

6 adults, 4 kids the holiday home was ideal. Plenty of space indoors, garden brilliant for outdoor use, parking is a must for 3 cars. The beach is 5 minutes away and Swanage has plenty of facilities for everyone, cafes, pubs, parks, walks, water sports, the list can go on.

Large, spacious property close to the beach

By Sarah on 05-Aug-2023

We have been coming to Swanage every year for 30 years. We have stayed at this property for the last two years and it really does tick all the boxes. It is close to the beach, just a five minute walk away. The property is clean and spacious. There are three large double bedrooms and two smaller rooms, perfect for the children. We’ve never been able to find such a large, child-friendly property to accommodate the whole family (grandparents, parents and grandchildren). There is also a lovely large garden, again perfect for the whole family to enjoy. The children enjoyed playing with the toys that are provided at the property as well as playing in the garden. The white room is stunning, especially when the sun is shining through the windows. We will be returning again next year after two wonderful holidays here - thank you so much Vicki!

Great Family House

By Tribe family on 05-May-2023

We had another great stay at the house in Swanage for a Birthday celebration. The brilliant thing about the house is that there is lots of living space for children and adults alike without being on top of each other! With 2 living rooms, one which lends itself to the kids room; has big sofas, DVD's etc. and the other which has a more grown up feel with big sofa's and fireplace and big double doors leading out to a covered veranda and pretty front garden. The light/bright kitchen/diner overlooks the large pretty garden and is where we could all congregate around the table at mealtimes. The garden is well kept and looked after and was great for the kids to kick a ball about and play cricket. It also catches the evening sun so great for a post beach drink over a BBQ. Upstairs the 3 double bedrooms are a great size, plenty of room and big beds! Kids really enjoyed the attic rooms and the games cupboard which was full of lego and toys. As well as the house being brilliant for families it's also in a fantastic location to make the most of Swanage. The nearest beach is a 5 mins walk away, the coast path is 5 mins and the nearest corner shop is a 5 minutes stroll! Ballard Stores is a great little find, the croissants and local produce were excellent. Vicki was also a great host, replied very quickly when we were short of towels and allowed us to borrow a few! Would definitely recommend the house if you're looking for a big house near the beach in Swanage.
