About Carol Baines

The house has been in our family since the late 1980s when Rupert (one of the current owners) and his two brothers were teenagers. Now all 3 brothers have families who have grown up enjoying visits to the house and all the delights Swanage has to offer. The house now belongs to Rupert & Carol and their teenage sons Oscar and Ivan. We love our Swanage home and will be life long Dorset fans!

Carol Baines purchased this house in 1988

Why Carol Baines chose Swanage

The house is homey and comfortable - not glamourous or luxury - but it has everything you need, is a short walk into town, and is a great base for exploring the area.

What makes this house unique

The house is full of character - I don't think there is a straight wall in it! The washing up view is beautiful!

The house was clean and cosy and had everything we needed. Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

36 Priests Road is just a short walk into Swanage and convenient for shops and restaurants. It is decorated simply and tastefully and had everything needed for our short stay away. The enclosed garden is a bonus and also the cellar with laundry facilities. The open plan living area is very spacious and is perfect for relaxing. The kitchen had everything we needed.

Upstairs the two bedrooms on the 1st floor were comfortable and although we didn't use the attic room, it looked lovely.

Having a keysafe at the front was really useful and gave us freedom to come back to the house i dividually if we needed to.

All in all a very pleasant stay and we would thoroughly recommend and we hope to come again.

Fantastic family home in great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in this lovely, well equipped holiday home. There was absolutely everything you could need and plenty of space - the children loved the attic bedroom! The location was great, just 10 minutes from Swanage town centre and beaches. Would highly recommend this property and hope to come back one day!

Spacious and homely.

  • 4 of 5

Only 10min walk from town centre and 5min walk to nearest convenience store. (Steep climb). Black swan pub (5mins away) serves excellent food at reasonable price.

Bathroom needs serious updating, which I guess is coming, but perfectly useable.

Would highly recommend and would stay again.

Owner's Response: So glad you had a great time. The new bathroom is being fitted in November, with a new staircase up to the attic bedroom - we are very excited! We hope you'll come and see the new look next phase next time you are in Swanage.

Amazing family friendly property

  • 5 of 5

Second year running at Priests Road and another fantastic break. The property is well kitted out for a family holiday with plenty of toys, games, DVDs and beach equipment for the children and all you would need for a comfortable stay. Really convenient for all of the local amenities and a short walk to the town and beach. Highly recommend this property.

Excellent House and Garden

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house and garden with stunning views from the rear over Swanage and surroundings.

House is perfectly situated 5 minutes walk from the high street into Swanage, so easy access but just out of the hustle and bustle of the town centre.

Highly recommended base for Swanage and Corfe Castle and some of the best walking countryside around.

Location

Plenty to do for a week or two in the Summer.

Lots of wonderful cliff top walks and sea views from the house.

The steam train from Swanage to Corfe Castle is a wonderful day out.

Lots to do for young children, play farm, swimming pool, little fairground on the sea front.

North Beach is more peaceful than the town beach which has it's own seafront charms.

Studland National Trust beach and headland a short drive.

Lots of good restaurants and cafes in walking distance from the house.

Water based activities: diving, fishing, sailing, boat trips, sea kayaking, banana boat rides, the list goes on.

Great riding stables at Studland, golf course, tennis club - lots to keep you busy.
