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:
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.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the cabin, with all its 5 star amenities. The spacious living accommodation and different seating areas, the comfortable double bedroom with masses of wardrobe space, and the well equipped kitchen, all enhanced the experience, and of course the lovely outdoor hot tub! There is so much to see and do in this beautiful area that we only scratched the surface. The weather was not brilliant, but there was plenty to keep us occupied, and on the one very wet day we took up Ron's suggestion of a lunch venue then spent the rest of the day enjoying the full Sky package and playing monopoly. Hoping to return very soon.

Stunning lodge

  • 5 of 5

Lavender Leap was the perfect place to stay, Ron and Jan have appeared to have thought of everything. It was like a home from home.

The lodge was spacious and clean set in peaceful surroundings but only a short cycle ride into swanage. Loved it !

Swanage Town
Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

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.

Travel:

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.

Distances:

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.
