Condo/Apartment
This Top-floor (2nd floor) apartment was until recently part of a painter's studio home. The accompanying photographs will show you the interior. You can read all about the painter on the front door of the house - 12A Institute Road. The apartment's chief attraction is its location in the very heart of Swanage right on top of the beach, which can be seen, 100 yards away from the front windows. Public transport, shops and restaurants are just outside the door. It has character and it couldn't be more central! You can easily do without a car, I will pay for parking in one of the four parking areas near the town center. The apartment is cosy and spacious and offers a real experience of traditional England, and a typical English seaside holiday in a setting of great natural beauty preserved...This Top-floor (2nd floor) apartment was until recently part of a painter's studio home.

You can easily do without a car, I will pay for parking in one of the four parking areas near the town center. The apartment is cosy and spacious and offers a real experience of traditional England, and a typical English seaside holiday in a setting of great natural beauty preserved by the National Trust, also known as the Jurassic coast of Dorset. It's all very rural, consisting mostly of cliff, rolling hills, seascape and open countryside. It is best suited for walks, sightseeing excursions, literary associations, safe bathing on sandy beaches, golfing, rock climbing, fishing, scuba diving and other water sports.This part of Dorset is also rich in history from Celtic hill forts, Saxon walls, Norman castles to World War II radar stations. Dorset was also the home of the famous English poet and novelist, Thomas Hardy, and its villages and towns, hills and heathlands are rich in associations with his writings. The apartment is only available on a weekly basis and during the summer months, Saturday to Saturday. More
