Pet friendly, family home in the Purbecks - views of steam train and hills

Located in: Swanage
We look forward to welcoming you at our spacious and newly refurbished 3 bedroom family home in Swanage.

Your arrival
We know our guests enjoy their privacy, so we won't be there to greet you, but a key will be left in a key box for you. The code will be sent to you before you arrive. There is a drive, but it's quite narrow so we normally park just outside the house. It's a very safe road and there's always loads of parking.

We'll leave a welcome guide in the kitchen for you and be on hand for anything you need. If for any reason, we're not around, then our neighbour, Julian, will help you. He's the beating heart of Swanage so will be able to answer all your questions about the local area and get you what you need.

Bright and modern kitchen/living/dining room overlooking the garden and local views.
We've just put in a brand new kitchen, so enjoy cooking up some treats - we'll make sure we have the basics ready for you (salt, pepper, oil, tea, coffee, sugar).
We know you have better things to do on your holiday than the washing up, so let the dishwasher do the work (we provide dishwasher tablets).
That said, a full day at the beach normally leaves ice cream stains on someone's favourite top, so feel free to make use of the washing machine and tumble dryer. We'll provide some non-biological washing tablets, but you are, of course, more than welcome to bring your own.

Large, bright and private garden. Perfect for Summer BBQs, lazy afternoons, or playing with the kids. Plenty of space for your four-legged pals too. We just ask that you clean up after them so the garden stays nice and safe for everyone. The steam train passes the bottom of the garden and kids and adults alike love it (just ask my Dad!). We have a BBQ and picnic bench outside. Coal is readily available at the local Co-op or Budgens.

Living Room
The kitchen is the heart of the home, but our separate living room provides the perfect space to get cosy in front of the open fire, or curl up with a good film and a glass of wine. We'll provide some logs and kindling to get you started.
The TV has Sky and you're welcome to link up your own device with the provided HDMI cable. Snuggle up on the comfy sofa with a book, or let the kids chill out in there whilst you're unwinding in the other room.
There are plenty of board games, puzzles and books to keep you entertained.

Our bathroom isn't the biggest, but it's light and clean. The tub is the perfect size for an evening soak and the power shower is ideal after a day out hiking the Purbeck ridgelines. Fresh towels are provided, we just ask that you bring your own for the beach. Toilet roll and hand soap is provided. There is also a separate cloakroom with a toilet and sink under the stairs.

We know it's inevitable that packing for a whole family means something gets left behind, so there will be some spare lotions and potions in the cupboard.

Master bedroom
The largest bedroom at the front of the house is bright and airy, with new bedding and a super comfy double mattress for a restful night. We've just had a new boiler installed, but in the highly unlikely case you get a bit chilly, there are plenty of clean blankets available. With plenty of space to hang your clothes in the wardrobe (hangers provided) there is no reason to worry about packing light. There is also a large full length mirror.

Bedroom 2
The second bedroom, at the back of the house, also has plenty of room to store your clothes. You'll get the perfect night's sleep on the King size bed. The mattress is a Vispring. That didn't mean much to me either until I slept on one, but it's super comfy. Again, all the bedding is new. Enjoy waking up to the view of the hills.

Bedroom 3
We like to keep this room versatile for our guests, so there is the option to have either the sofa bed down as a double bed, or we can turn it into a makeshift nursery. We have a travel cot and fresh bedding for babies. This will be always be washed in non-biological washing powder as we know how sensitive their skin can be.
Unfortunately, this isn't a huge room so there isn't a lot of storage for clothes in this one, but the rest of the house more than makes up for that. It is, however, very quiet. My friend's kids (3 and 5) always like to stay in that room and turn it into a den with fairy lights.

Little bundles
Babies are more than welcome. Just let us know in advance where you would like us to set up the cot. We can put it separately in Bedroom 3, or fit it in the bay window in the master bedroom.

Not normally a selling point for holidays, I know. But if you do have bikes/kayaks that you want to bring with you, then you are more than welcome to store them in there during your stay.
There is a spare washing machine in there too for when your four-legged pal decides to roll in the mud (yes - we have spare towels for doggies too!).

Swanage is situated on the Jurassic Coast (a World Heritage site) with stunning views of the coast and surrounding countryside. The coastal path can be reached with a 15 minute walk and there are countless local strolls to enjoy. Whether that's a short climb up to Durlston Castle, an amble up to the beautiful village of Worth Matravers, or a good day out to Corfe Castle.

Studland Beach
Studland is the perfect place to spend a Summer day. Head down early to get a good spot on this beautiful sandy beach. You can rent water sports equipment if you like to be active and go for a kayak around Old Harry Rocks, or head over to Brownsea Island. Studland is dog-friendly but you will need to keep them on a lead at certain times of the year. There is also a National Trust cafe that does a great lunch, or tea and cake, but we often take a picnic to keep costs down. Don't forget your National Trust card to take advantage of the free parking.
Swanage Beach
This sand and pebble beach is only a 10 minute walk from the house and is perfect for families as it's so close to the town. Again, you can do water sports there, head to one of the seaside arcades, or enjoy an ice cream.
Sandbanks is a bit busier than Studland and Swanage and involves a short trip across the water on the chain ferry. It's a more expensive day out, but another lovely beach to enjoy with the family.

Swanage enjoys a host of events throughout the year. We have a number of festivals covering folk music, morris dancing, steam trains, gin, seafood, beer and cider.

For family friendly food head to the Salt Pig in town. All food is sourced locally and you'll enjoy a true taste of Dorset.
For special occasions The Priory (Wareham), or The Pig on The Beach (Studland) are the ideal place to celebrate in style and enjoy artisan drinks and fine dining.
For heartwarming pasties and local hospitality, the world famous Square and Compass in Worth Matravers is the best spot to enjoy a well-earned local drink after a day out.
Got a sweet tooth? Then Love Cake is the only place to go. The Chocolate Guinness cake is to die for.

Entertaining the family...
There is plenty to enjoy outside, but if the weather takes a turn, or you fancy a change of scene, then there are lots of places to take the kids.
The Tank Museum boasts the world's best collection of tanks. Their exhibitions tell the story of armoured warfare from World War One to the present day.

Farmer Palmer's is a great value and safe environment for hands-on animal events. With indoor and outdoor play areas you can enjoy it no matter the weather. Features include pony rides, go karting, bouncy castles, deer safari, woodland walks and animal feeding.

Monkey World is also close by. Rescued and rehabilitated apes from all over the world are kept safe and sound here.

The National Trust has a whole host of properties nearby - travel back in time at Corfe Castle, or enjoy Dorset's rich literary heritage by visiting Hardy's Cottage, Max Gate, or Cloud's Hill. Just remember your NT membership card to make the most of the free parking!
