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.

Notes on accommodation: We do not accept bookings from stag or hen parties or large single sex groups please. We welcome young children but would ask that they are properly supervised. Outside: We have a reasonable grassed area to one side of the cabin where children can safely play but to the rear and south facing side we have decked this out to provide a more comfortable dining area. We have a covered seating /dining area for 4 to the rear with helicopter chairs to relax in. We also have a private hot tub in this area which seats 4 comfortably. On the south facing side we again have a large decked area with good sized gas barbecue and glass topped table with 4 chairs, this is adjacent to kitchen sliding doors which makes for a great outdoor cooking/eating experience. To the front we have another veranda with small table and chairs, again with sliding doors into the main bedroom, this faces East so is great for an early morning cup of coffee as the sun comes up. Utility Room: Washing machine with built in dryer, iron and board, separate wash basin, hooks for jackets etc. and shoe tidy. Central heating boiler. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: We supply a full set of Egyptian cotton towels for each guest and all beds are made up with Duvets and Egyptian cotton linen. These would normally be changed on a weekly basis but can be changed more frequently for a small extra charge. Other: Snug off main living room which contains double sofa bed. Lovely little room in its own right with French windows onto veranda. Watch the birds swarming over there feeder or just relax with a little privacy.

Excellent venue.

  • 5 of 5

We've just recently enjoyed a few days stay in this lovely Log Cabin. It was very comfortable, well equipped and situated in a very restful location which overlooked fields with an abundance of wildlife to see. Forgot the Hot Tub,! It was perfect. Beautiful walks in the area, either by the sea or inland. Hope to rebook again for the Autumn. To the very helpful owners Ron & Jan, "Thank you".

From Val, Sandra, and dogs Buster & Max

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a relaxing and perfect location to explore Swanage and the surrounding area then this is your place, there is nothing I could fault about this property, we do stay in quite a few different places and have been disappointed before but Lavender Leap certainly did not disappoint. We ranged in age from 19 months to 53 years and it was perfect for all, the only comment I would make when letting for children and dogs is that it could do with a gate at the end on the decking, but this would certainly not put me off from going again. You will certainly be pleased you picked this property.

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!
