About Janet Schofield

As a family we are increasingly enticed by the sea, whether for walking, swimming, sightseeing (or just gazing). Now our children are older we've graduated from buckets and spades to the exhilaration of body boarding and enjoying the local restaurants and pubs.

Janet Schofield purchased this apartment in 1997

Why Janet Schofield chose Purbeck

The combination of sea and countryside is a winner. Swanage has all the pleasures of a family resort without being big and brash. There's a lovely buzz and lots going on (Carnival, Blues Festival, Walking Festival, Jazz Festival, Folk Festival, Purbeck Film Festival). We didn't want somewhere that was only worth visiting during the summer and Swanage is just as good a destination out of season. The coast and countryside is stunning. Swanage is a gateway town to the World Heritage Jurassic Coast and Dorset's Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, so it's a fascinating area area to explore.

What makes this apartment unique

We often spend our whole holiday without using our car. The beach and town are so close and convenient that there's no need, and the views from the apartment are so good that you're often not tempted to go anywhere else. However, when we do go farther afield we often use buses to get around. It's still a delight even if the weather's rough. There's something pleasurable about watching the stormy sea from a dry, warm and comfortable seat!

Perfect getaway location, idyllic setting.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay and we enjoyed it even more since the property's recent refurbishment. The location is unique and the views superb. Even in late autumn, with bracing walks, fish and chips, then coming home to put your feet up with a glass of something is what British holidays are all about. So much within walking distance but if you venture further afield try The Pig at Studland where we had the most memorable lunch and walk. We were just two of us but the apartment is perfect for families and the inclusive parking space a real bonus.

Great apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is superbly situated with wonderful sea views from most windows. The decor is light and modern and very comfortable and clean.

Great location for walks, and would recommend the short drive to Corfe, it is a lovely village whether or not you choose to visit the castle.

We really enjoyed our stay, helped by sunny weather.

Wonderful views

  • 4 of 5

Well equipped comfortable property with great views over the sea and coastline. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay even though the weather was quite wet and windy and would thoroughly recommend. In fact we have already booked again for next year. Swanage has plenty of independent shops, cafés and restaurants, all of which seemed quite busy for the time of year. There are also plenty of coastal walks, and places to visit within in easy reach.
