Ideal location

  • 5 of 5

The flat is in an ideal position as it is only a short walk along the seafront to all the amenities that Swanage has to offer. Do not be concerned with the exterior of the building. The interior is spacious, well appointed and spotlessly clean. It is more than adequate for two adults.

Swanage is lovely little town with plenty to do and see, including Studland, Corfe Castle and Brownsea Island.

I would recommend this property.

A well presented and comfortable one bed apartment

  • 5 of 5

I booked this apartment for myself and two daughters at the last minute due to an unexpected change in holiday plans, and it was a great success. The flat was very clean and nicely decorated, the beds were very comfortable and it was great to have the balcony to sit and eat and enjoy the view. It is in a good location, only 5 mins stroll down to the beach - which delighted my girls who spent many hours each day in the sea and playing on the beach as we were very fortunate with the weather. Very easy and pleasant walk along the edge of the beach to get in to the town centre for the cinema or pubs and restaurants and of course the ice cream stalls, which are ubiquitous, again to the delight of my girls! I would highly recommend this one bed apartment which sleeps 3 yet doesn't feel cramped at all.

A brilliant one bed apartment

  • 5 of 5

I was lucky enough to be the first person to rent this apartment following a complete renovation earlier in 2016. I can thoroughly recommend it and I hope to return for Swanage Carnival next year. It's in a perfect location to arrive, park the car in it's allocated bay, and leave it there for the week - no need for it! Everything is a short walk away - beaches are 5 minutes, town centre and steam railway are 10 minutes, and the end of the pier about 15 minutes - all of it a level, easy stroll by the sea. The apartment has a large living room with comfortable chairs, settee and tv, and a well appointed kitchen plus dining area with all I needed (including some beers already chilling in the fridge). The double bedroom is huge, with built in wardrobes and access to the balcony, and the 3 piece bathroom is compact, with a great power shower. However, the best feature of Alrose villa is the wrap around balcony, which is great for relaxing with a morning coffee or an early evening aperitif, admiring the sea view towards Swanage. I had a great holiday there!

PS Great customer service with Nicky, the contact for this property

PPS The Red Lion is the best pub in Swanage - both for real ales and it's food!

Swanage town and beach is a good base to explore many things. Not only does Swanage have many restaurants, amusement arcades, ice cream parlors, quirky little gifts shops, it is the starting point of the Jurassic coast. Old Harry Rock is a lovely walk over the hill towards Studland with incredible views all the way across to Poole Harbor, Isle of wight, Bournemouth, Mudderford and Christchurch. Going the other direction you will first come to Durlston Castle which is worth a look there is a small museum there, restaurant and gift shop. The views are across towards France as well as Swanage Bay. The light house is a lovely walk. Further along the coast line you will come to Dancing Ledge, Winspit (fantastic caves), Kimmeridge Bay (fossil hunting), Tyneham the village lost in time, it was evacuated during the 2nd world war, this is a must but take a picnic!! Monkey world and the Tank Museum are definitely worth a day trip to whilst your here. Corfe Castle is only 15 minutes by car or you could catch the beautiful Steam Train. There is a new water park also which is great for the whole family situated in Corfe. The village of Langton Matravers has an adventure Farm perfect for smaller children on those wet days.(5 min by car)
