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.

Property was spacious and excellent location being only a couple of minutes walk to the beach/town.

  • 4 of 5

Very clean and spacious property, well equipped with everything you need. Great location with beach and town within easy walking distance. Bus station and steam railway a couple of minutes walk away. Could have easily stayed a week and not used the car once! Used our Devon bus passes to travel free on the Breezer to Bournemouth and Poole for the day.

Our stay in Swanage

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 7 Adults. Our stay at Capstone House in Swanage was excellent with the property beautifully presented and spotlessly clean. Very comfortable beds and lounge room furniture which enabled us to relax, unwind and enjoy our stay The house was of generous proportions with everything we could possible need. The location was fabulous, close to town and the beach. An excellent experience for all of us enhanced by the thoughtfulness of Christmas decorations and good information about kitchen equipment that enabled us to plan for our Christmas dinner .

Owner's Response: Hi Jane, You are definitely our furthest travelling family to stay at Capstone and we are so pleased that our home suited you for the Christmas period. No doubt you are now back home enjoying the summer sun, leaving us poor Brits to suffer the cold! Thanks for your lovely review Kathy & Helen

Comfortable and spacious house, close to seafront.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying at Capstone. Five of us were in Swanage for the blues fest and it suited our needs as it's quite close to the centre of town and had enough space for us to relax when we weren't at the music. The beds were very comfortable and the house was well equipped and warm.

Lovely relaxing stay

  • 4 of 5

House was lovely, bedrooms very spacious, kitchen well equipped, shower wonderfully hot.

Easy to walk into Swanage town and Durlston House just a couple of steep hills away.

Shame there is no grassed garden area to sit in as weather was beautiful for our stay.

Overall the 6 of us that stayed there were well impressed with our weekend visit. Thank you

Owner's Response: Hi Sue, Thank you for your lovely comments. We are very pleased that you had a great relaxing weekend. So sorry the lack of a larger garden seemed a concern, however with the beach and the park areas of Swanage within a few minutes walk we have never felt that this was a problem. We do appreciate your thoughts on this, however. Regards, Kathy & Helen

Usual great holiday stay

  • 5 of 5

Had a great 4 days as that was all the dates that were left.

In the sea every day and the beach was not crowded.

Location important as 2 of our party find walking hard.

Always good communication from Kathy as it is our 4 time here.

Hope to be back.
