With an open-plan living and dining room at the core of this traditional terrace house, groups of friends and families alike can unwind altogether after a busy day exploring this corner of Dorset. Sleeping eight in five bedrooms, this delightful property is located close to the bustling amenities of the seaside town of Swanage. Explore art, gift and craft shops before having a swim at the sandy beach. With doors to the garden from both the living room and the kitchen, members of the group can spread out and grab a moment of solitude in the sunshine, admiring the views over Swanage Bay from the raised seating area.

 

Kick off boots and shoes in the mosaic-tiled hall and step into simple elegance. The neutral and mild palette is punctuated with bright splashes of colours whilst high ceilings and large windows create a light and airy interior, with the wooden floors adding a touch of warmth. Quirky furnishings and paintings add a sense of character with the feature fireplaces adding a little history. Gather together to relax in the cosy living room in front of the open fire to watch a film. On warm evenings, open the French doors to the garden and share a family meal together at the dining table. In the attractive kitchen, enjoy informal snacks at the breakfast bar with the doors open to the garden. Upstairs to the first floor, find the first three comfortable, light and bright bedrooms. The sinks in the bedrooms are handy and, as each floor has its own bathroom, there will be no queuing for the shower! The two single rooms on the second floor have reduced height in the eaves and lovely sea views. Outside, the courtyard-style back garden is reached by two steps and has raised beds, a gas BBQ and a slightly raised seating area which affords stunning views over the rooftops and out to Swanage Bay. There is roadside parking available.

Be aware that this house is on a very steep hill with a lot of traffic during the day and parking is a nightmare. Beds comfortable.
