Holiday Rental House
A charming, traditional Purbeck cottage originally built in the 1800s as part of a row of cottages for stonemasons working in the local quarries. The cottage has been sympathetically renovated over the years and retains plenty of period charm with the benefits of modern living. Downstairs the cosy living room has comfortable seating, a traditional fire place with the convenience of an electric fire and views towards Ballard Down. The kitchen/diner has all you need for a family of four and leads through to a large boot room with storage space, downstairs bathroom and stable door leading to the rear courtyard garden.

The cottage has been sympathetically renovated over the years and retains plenty of period charm with the benefits of modern living. Downstairs the cosy living room has comfortable seating, a traditional fire place with the convenience of an electric fire and views towards Ballard Down. The kitchen/diner has all you need for a family of four and leads through to a large boot room with storage space, downstairs bathroom and stable door leading to the rear courtyard garden. Upstairs are two well-presented bedrooms, the master bedroom at the front overlooks the town and benefits from sea views whilst at the rear there’s a twin bedroom. Situated in an elevated position above Swanage High Street but tucked back from the hustle and bustle, the town centre and sandy beach are within a 10-minute walk. The cottage can be accessed from the High Street via an original set of stone steps, or for a flatter route from the rear of the property using the back road. There’s a small front garden laid to grass, although it has shared access with the neighbouring cottages, the owners have thoughtfully gated it to allow a sense of privacy and for the benefit of any four-legged guests. A stable door leads out to a small but pretty rear courtyard with seating and shared access to a neighbouring cottage. A gated path leads out to Priests Road with on street parking. Please note due to the nature of being a traditional cottage, the stairway is narrow and steep and therefore unsuitable for children under the age of 5 and those with reduced mobility. If in doubt, please call the office to discuss. Bedrooms: 1) double bed 2) twin 3ft beds Bathrooms: family bathroom on ground floor with shower over bath, W.C. and basin Kitchen/diner: electric hob and fan oven, fridge with ice box, washing machine and microwave Living room: two comfortable sofas, flat screen Smart TV with Freeview and DVD/Blueray player, plus Pure digital sound system Linen & towels provided: please bring your own beach towels WiFi: included Fuel: gas central heating Parking: nearby on street parking available Children: Children over 5 years welcome Pets: one well behaved dog permitted Please note this is a no smoking property Pets information: Pets are allowed at this property by prior arrangement only.

This is a lovely house - full of period character, but beautifully modernised throughout - in a perfect setting: the heart of Swanage, on the beautiful isle of Purbeck. The address is the High Street, and the shops aren't far, but you're still tucked away...More

A lovely cosy little cottage tucked away in a quiet back street, about a 10 minute stroll from the beach front. Very clean and lovely owners. Perfect for a couples break, or maybe a small family. Great british staycation vibes!
