About the property

Log Cabin in Swanage, Dorset, England - Luxury Accomodation In The Heart Of The Purbecks

A brand new log cabin built in 2013, covering a huge 110 square metres of floor space it has been designed and built to the highest standard. With floor to ceiling double glazed windows and 4 sliding doors onto the veranda you have an over all feeling of space and with the open views to the rear of privacy. Privately owned we are situated in a small development of cabins but with plenty of privacy and no restriction on parking there is no sense of intrusion. We have a hot tub, a large veranda to the rear and side of the cabin with an outside dining area and 2 helicopter chairs, a large barbecue and further outside dining adjacent to sliding doors that lead into the kitchen for real alfresco dining. We are about a 1/2 hour walk to the Blue flag beach in Swanage, 5 minutes to Herston whistle stop for the steam railway which takes you into Swanage or Corfe Castle, or of course you could drive as there is plenty of parking in Swanage. Taxi into town is approx £5 for 4 people.

5* Cabin !!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely stay at the log cabin. Ron was a pleasure to deal with and was on hand to answer any questions we had. The cabin was very well equipped and very clean. The outside area had lots of seating options and was also very clean and tidy. We really enjoyed coming back in the evening and chilling out in the hot tub!

We are thinking about returning in the summer it was that nice!

Extremely clean property with everything you could possibly need!

  • 5 of 5

We took my autistic sister away for a short break and wanted it to be peaceful and calm. We couldn't have asked for better! Ron was wonderfully helpful, greeting us on our first day. The cabin was beautifully equipped and clean, and the location was perfect. My sister really enjoyed her stay. She loved the helicopter chairs! We would definitely consider returning. We visited Lulworth Cove, which was lovely and on another day went to Studland Beach which was absolutely beautiful and very close by.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Bournmouth at 10 Miles Nearest Barpub : Kings Arms in Langton BH19 3HA at 1.5 Miles Nearest Ferry : Sandbanks chain link at 4 Miles Nearest Golf : Studland Golf Club at 2 Miles Nearest Train : Wareham at 10 Miles Nearest Motorway : M27 Southhampton at 20 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Various at 1 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Swanage Town at 1 Miles Car: recommended


We are about 10 minute drive from the beach and town of Swanage and a similar distance from Studland. Swanage boasts Blue flag status on its town beaches with gently sloping sand and a pedestrian promenade with Punch and Judy in the summer along with paddle boat hire and all the fun of the sea. Studland is exceptional, National Trust and SSI country side, safe beaches and stunning views across to Bournemouth, lovely cafes and lots to explore. Walk to the chain link ferry and see Brownsea Isle.


We would recommend a car or bike to get around, there is so much to see that is not accessible by public transport.

Main train station is Wareham about 10 miles away and you can connect by bus.

Bournemouth is closest airport at about 22 miles.

Poole is about 10 miles away by chain link ferry, well worth it.


Swanage beach 1.5 miles

Corfe Castle, Cromwell tried to blow it up but it still stands, 5 miles.

Wareham, Saxon walled town with some walls still standing, Saturday market on quay. 10 miles.

Lulworth Cove and Durdle dor, in fact whole Jurassic coast, starts at Swanage and goes on for 60 miles.

Tyneham, Requisition during war for training now important visitor attraction 10 miles.

Studland, National Trust and SSI about 2 miles.

Weymouth and Chessil beach, home of 2012 Olympics 25 miles.

Further Details:

Although a small town Swanage has a wealth of top quality restaurants, pubs and fish and chip shops. Don’t scoff at the latter, see the queue outside the chip shop on the Square any day of the week. We prefer the local pubs especially the Kings Arms at Langton Maltraves, about a mile away, continually changing menu, excellent beers and great atmosphere. Also the Scott Arms, recently featured on Country File has a Jamacian menu and the most amazing views of Corfe.

Swanage its self has everything from a Wimpy bar to top class restaurants.

Well served by 2 supermarkets, Lloyds, Nat West and Barclays, numerous artisan bakery’s and veg and health food shops, but perhaps the best butcher in town is in the most unlikely place, in the back of Cost Cutters shop at the far end of the High Street about ½ mile from us. Run by Stan, this proper butcher makes his own sausages and burgers as well as producing some fine quality meats, well worth a visit.
