"We had an absolutely brilliant time in Swanage! None of us had been before, and we thought it was fab; the kids had a whale of a time with buckets, spades and fishing nets. We were all extremely sad to leave, I have to say! The cottage is excellent, and my 5 year old son is totally in love with the Lifeboat Station next door, he was permanently pottering over to inspect the posters and charts outside. Suffice to say - We'll Be Back!"
"We had a lovely time; long walks on the coast path, sitting with a coffee or wine outside on the benches and a daily run out to the Lighthouse and back was all very relaxing.It is a fantastic location!"
About the Owner
I live in South West London with my husband and three children. The cottage is our family's much loved second home and so we would hope guests would treat it with care. It is a magical place and I hope you fall in love with it as we have.
Year property purchased: 1993
Why this location?
We have owned the Cottage for over fifteen years but my husbands family have always had a property on the Point - Granny has been swimming here since she was 4 and her teenage grandchildren still rate Swanage as their favorite holiday. The location is simply unbeatable - right on the beautiful Jurassic Coast, views from the seafront garden across the bay to Old Harry's Rock and the stunning coastal path behind, leading to Durlstan Bay, Dancing Ledge and beyond. Five minutes walk along the seafront takes you to town - but Peveril Point is an oasis of tranquility, even in the height of Summer.
What are the unique benefits of the property?
If the weather is fine there is no place better than the cottage garden, but if you want a sandy beach, stroll along the front 5 mins to the sailing club beach or 10mins to Swanage beach. A 10 minute drive will take you to the National Trust beaches at Studland. A row boat, Sea Kayak and life jackets are kept in the garden or on the slip infront of the cottage and are free to use at your own risk. Similarly if you wanted to bring your own small dinghy - laser or topper size, you could keep it directly infront of the cottage on our slipway. Swimming and Fishing can also be done directly infront of the cottage.
