Swanage is the principle holiday destination on Purbeck and is known for the beautiful sandy beach, friendly and peaceful town centre and excellent access to the Jurassic Coast. Holidays in Swanage put Purbeck at your feet and you may choose to enjoy walks in the Purbeck Hills, a trip of the Swanage Steam Railway, a pint at a country pub in nearby Worth Matravers or simply relax and enjoy the water in the sheltered bay.

Swanage Map and Location

staying at Central Villa Swanage, Dorset

We had a great time at Central villa, close to shops so not far to carry back the shopping! Very comfortable and homely. Owners very welcoming and helpful.

staying at Providence Cottage Swanage, Dorset

Wow what a location and what a beautifully restored cottage - gorgeously decorated, everything we needed provided and so central it was the perfect place for our family (with 3 yr old) to holiday in. Kitchen bits, kids equipment, games, fire logs, parking, everything we needed. Can't wait to return.

staying at Brantwood Swanage, Dorset

Our second year at Brantwood and again excellent accommodation.

staying at My Home on The Pond Swanage, Dorset

Great location, quiet but close to all you need. The cottage is good with everything you would need for a week away. We particularly enjoyed the garden as the weather was brilliant x
