About sarah thorneywork

Having first visited Swanage as a couple, Ian and I fell in love with the place, so much so, that once we'd had our children, we felt it was the perfect place to buy a holiday home, to enjoy as a family...far enough away to feel like we've been away, but close enough to escape to, even if it was only for the weekend.

We've had some absolutely fantastic times here & still do, but as the children are getting older, they have more commitments at the weekends, and so we seem to spend less and less time down in Swanage.

So, we have made the decision to let out our second home, and offer others the opportunity to discover the charm & allure of Swanage! Happy holidays from us all..Sarah, Ian, Tom, Henry & Lily x

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of 8 ranging from 18 months to 80 and this property suited us all.

The location was perfect for not only viewing the steam trains it was a flat 10 min walk into the town centre and onto the seafront.

Would just suggest a empty cupboard for storing groceries.

A Lovely House In Close Proximity To The Beach

  • 4 of 5

Our extended family really enjoyed their stay in 3 Chestnut Mews. The property was safe for our four 6 years and under and the railway yard view was of great interest to them.

The only thing I think would be useful is a provisions cupboard in the kitchen. When away with small children you always need to bring along their favourite foods.

Lovely property with everything you could need!

  • 5 of 5

second year running that we've stayed at chestnut mews. The house has everything you would need and to a high quality. The location is great, with plenty to do! We didn't use the car all weekend! The owners went above and beyond when we asked for some balloons and banners for my husbands 30th. We would definitely recommend and I'm sure we'll stay again.

Location

Car: not necessary

Coast/Beach:

Swanage beach is an award winning blue flag beach with Punch and Judy, beach huts and water sports and is 10 minutes walk away from Chestnut Mews. If you want to venture slightly further (max 15 minutes drive to the furthest of these), South beach, Middle beach, Knoll beach and Shell Bay are stunning National Trust beaches. Water sports are available at Knoll beach and sailing courses or sail boat hire is available at Shell Bay.

Travel:

Chestnut Mews is situated within walking distance of Swanage town centre and beach. Nearest travel links are Poole harbour, Bournemouth Int airport, Bournemouth train station and Wareham train station. Car hire is not essential.

Distances:

Swanage is a gem of the Dorset coast! In this unique area, glorious sandy beaches and breathtaking coastal scenery, blend harmoniously with peaceful, unspoilt countryside and picturesque villages of mellow stone and golden thatch. This very special area has so much to offer, from the traditional seaside holiday, with safe, award winning beaches & excellent family facilities, to the stunning Purbeck hills and Jurassic coast.

Further Details:

Swanage's dramatic landscape offers wild flowers and heathers in spring, brilliant sunshine and lazy summer days, warm autumn colours over the hills and heathland and country pubs with log fires, blazing on winter nights. There are so many things to do and see; many bridleways and footpaths for mountain biking, rambling or horse riding, local swimming pools, tennis courts, an indoor and outdoor bowling green, a funfair and amusement arcade from Easter through to October and between Swanage and Studland, a golf course to while away the hours. The romantic ruin of Corfe Castle stands just a few miles from Swanage. Why not take a step back in time and take a trip there on the steam train? For food there are the traditional fish and chip restaurants, good local pub grub, tapas bars, Indian and Chinese cuisine and other treasures that can be found within walking distance. At the far end of the town is the Victorian pier, home to diving centres, boat and fishing trips from the quay and wonderful events, with plenty to do in the summertime.
