About Kathy Farrell

Hi,

As sisters, both of us live elsewhere in England with our respective families but love to have a bolt hole in the place where we grew up.

We hope you like our property!

Kathy & Helen

Kathy Farrell purchased this house in 1970

Why Kathy Farrell chose Purbeck

The house, Capstone, was first purchased by our mum in 1971 and at first we lived there while at school and returned regularly once we left the area. Now that ownership of the house has passed to ourselves we have made significant alterations to bring Capstone up to a standard for luxury holiday let. However we still love to visit Swanage and enjoy the comfort of Capstone.

What makes this house unique

Capstone is so convenient for the proximity to the town centre and beach, and not only that, for its 2 parking spaces that mean 2 families can enjoy using the house without worrying about parking.

Guestbook comments from the owner

An enjoyable return visit to Capstone - June 2016!



We thoroughly enjoyed our return visit to Capstone. The location must be one of the very best in Swanage, being near to the beach, shops, the wonderful steam railway and with parking for 2 x large vehicles. Capstone is an extremely well equipped, comfortably furnished spacious house, which is ideal for larger families or friends. Our family (age range from 67 years to 18 months) are very likely to return in 2017!



We would have no hesitation in giving Capstone the highest possible reference,

Thank you Kathy and Helen.

Very comfortable, well-equipped & delightfully furnished/decorated.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location, only minutes to anything. Just about everything you need is supplied. Particularly liked the different themes in the bedrooms. Excellent directions given for arrival. Both owner & local cleaning staff were very pleasant & helpful. Be aware that there are quite a lot of stairs - in particular, note that the upstairs toilet is on a mezzanine level so night visits will involve some stairs from all bedrooms not just the upper ones. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

Owner's Response: Hi Pat, Thank you so much for your excellent review of Capstone. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your 2 week stay in Swanage. And thank you for your comments on the stairs, obviously with a 3 storey property there will be quite a lot of stairs but for anyone reading these reviews, there are 2-3 steps between the first floor bedrooms and the mezzanine with the toilet, with a small step up into the toilet. It's not something we point out unless someone asks about accessibility. Thanks again, Kathy & Helen

Very large beautifully presented house

  • 4 of 5

House was very well presented, had plenty of space. Set over three floors all the bedrooms were kingsize. Only disappointment was size of bathroom.

There was plenty of crockery, cutlery, glassware and kitchen utensils.

The property was situated for walking to the sea front and into town. The train and bus station were 2 minutes away.

Owner's Response: Hi Gill, Thanks for your positive review of your stay at Capstone. With regards to your comment on the bathroom size, we must admit we would have liked it bigger. However, as we installed another shower room towards the top of the house and 3 of the 4 bedrooms have wash basins, we find that the small bathroom isn't usually a problem for our guests. Thanks again, Kathy & Helen

A clean, well-equipped house.. .

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfectly situated , with the park , station , shops and beach nearby. We had everything we needed and were very comfortable. I would like to book the hose for next year when I know the half term dates. The wine, milk and cookies were a lovely surprise on arrival.

Owner's Response: Dear Catherine, Many thanks for your review and we will be pleased to welcome you back to Capstone. Just let us know when you are sure of the dates - we think the bank holiday week would be 25th May to 1st June. Don't leave it too long - someone else might book it! Regards, Kathy & Helen

Location

Coast/Beach:

500m - 5 minutes walk maximum to the main Swanage beachfront with its award winning beach. 3.5 miles to Studland beach. Fantastic walking along the coast from Swanage in both directions - to Studland or to Durlston and the Jurassic Coast

Travel:

Swanage is served by National Express coaches daily and Bournemouth is accessible by bus too. You can park up and never touch your car just going to the beach but it's a wonderful area to explore using a car - many wonderful walks and areas to visit along the Jurassic coast. The Swanage Railway runs excursions past Corfe Castle so you can visit Corfe and walk back. Also the Railway does specials like Thomas the Tank engine, and on-board Dining events - check their website for details.

Distances:

Studland 5 miles. Corfe Castle 4 miles. Wareham 9 miles. Bournemouth via the Studland ferry 10 miles. Poole via Studland ferry 10 miles. Lulworth 12 miles. Monkey world 15 miles. Bovington Tank Museum 15 miles. Dorchester 20 miles.

Further Details:

Swanage has many good restaurants, two local supermarkets (short walking distance in town), theatre/cinema, several local banks with ATMs

Lots of excellent pubs in the area too - information left in the property for you.

Diving outfit on the pier in Swanage for scuba diving trips - Swanage Pier is a renowned diving site!

Many boat operators near Swanage Pier operate coastal sight seeing or fishing trips

For wildlife, Durlston Country Park is 1.5 miles from the house (possible to walk as well as drive there). RSPB Reserve Arne is 10 miles away outside Corfe Castle - wonderful for wildlife and great views of Poole Harbour.

Many great weekend festivals held in Swanage each year, from Jazz, Folk and Blues weekends to Comedy and Walking Festivals - check out local websites for information.
