“Perfect Holiday Rental”

Osbourne house has all the things you require for a holiday let. If you intend to cook whilst holidaying, the kitchen is well equipped. Everything was spotlessly clean and the beds are very comfortable. The rooms are light and airy and the view from the lounge is spectacular.This apartment is in a wonderful location, the sea is literally a stones throw away.

All shops, bars and restaurants are just round the corner and yet the apartment is quiet and a restful. Swanage is a great location to visit all the places along the coast. I recommend that you use the chain ferry to cross into Pool. It is much quicker than driving round and a great experience.

This holiday flat is perfect for a relaxed break in Swanage. Its right by the seafront without being in the main drag. You can park up and not even need to use your car for your entire stay, with the beach, counrty park and steam train within easy walking distance. It is close to several excellent pubs, our favourite being the Red Lion.

We ave just returned from Osborne House, Swanage. A stunning flat with superb views across the bay and towards the pier. Accomodation was excellent with tasteful 'seaside' decor. The Georgian windows gave us a great view of Swanage and the coast.

“90m from sea front with great views from huge bay window”
Reviewed November 13, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

person found this review helpful

The absolute best place to be is sitting underneath the huge lounge bay window when the morning sun floods into the apartment. You can easily sit there and look out of the window the whole day!

But when you do go out, the beach front is literally 90m away or you can walk straight up the grassy hill to Peveril Point to begin your cliff top walk.

This really is the best corner of Swanage to be in and we will definitely be coming back here again.

“Super spot - Just right to explore Swanage and surrounding area”

person found this review helpful

We stayed at the flat as a party of four and had a super time. The accommodation was excellent and is very well situated in the heart of Swanage. Although there were four of us, there was plenty of room to relax together when not out exploring and we enjoyed a mix of elf-catering and eating out around the town.

I'm sure we'll be back, either for a cozy stay during the winter or a summer treat! Either way, we'll also make sure that we head back to our favorite pub, the Square & Compass at Worth Matravers!

“Lovely flat in great location”
Reviewed October 15, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

person found this review helpful

My wife and I have now stayed in this lovely flat twice and we just love it.
It is in a great location just off the front with only a short walk into the town centre with its many restaurants and cafes and an even shorter walk onto the downs with stunning views of the beautiful coastline. Peveril Point, about half a mile from the flat is a perfect spot to relax by the sea.
The flat has a modern feel yet has a really cosy atmosphere. There is nothing better than sitting in the bay window in the lounge and looking out onto the pier or onto the downs.
The lounge is very well equipped with guides, maps, books and dvds to make a perfect stay whatever the weather. The kitchen is also well equipped and the whole flat was spotlessly clean.
The bedrooms at the back overlook a nice garden which is available to sit in. The bedrooms are comfortable with good storage and most important for us are quiet.
A week or even a few days in this flat and in Swanage just leave you in such a relaxed frame of mind and we cannot wait to come back again.
