A non-smoking property


We found that the property was so convenient for so many things. The buses were good, we did the boat trip to Poole and that was good value. On several days we did not need to use the car. The information that had been left in the property was very useful and gave us plenty of ideas for things to do. The property was ideal for our week away in Swanage and we enjoyed it very much.

Mrs Isobelle H,

Very well equipped flat, spotlessly clean

C and S,

It didn't take us long to understand why the words 'perfect' and 'fantastic' feature so much in previous guest comments. It has been the ideal holiday apartment - and those views! We already knew Swanage well, we thought, but this was something else!

Previous Customer,

Comfortable apartment with the mods & cons. Plenty of things to do or explore around Purbeck and Brownsea Island using bus and steam train. Black Swan pub is a fabulous place to eat and is good value for money.
