About the Owner
About Steve Peach
My name is Steve and I currently live and work in Swanage. I have owned this house since 2000 and until recently lived there with my family. Due to my sons flying the coop I have moved into a smaller place and have chosen to offer my former family home to visitors to Swanage.
Steve Peach purchased this house in 2000
Why Steve Peach chose Purbeck
I love this part of the world. So close to beach but with easy access to cliff walks, forests and downs, this has everything to offer. We are so lucky to have so much going on throughout the year with our Blues, Folk and Jazz festivals, our sporting events and, of course, our amazing Christmas and New Year activities. If you have never been to us for our Carnival Week end July/first week of August then you must - you won't realise what you are missing until you share the experience.
What makes this house unique
The property is so close to town but with the added advantage of my new off road parking - I wished I'd done it years ago! And, of course, I have my lovely decking area - perfect for a pre-dinner glass of wine in the evening.

Activity and Interests

Deckchairs, loungers and pedaloes are available for hire and our traditional Punch & Judy show is a must. There are amusement arcades and a mini fair/playground close by and it will be difficult to resist our Ice Cream Parlours, Chocolate shop and Tea Rooms and Cafe/Restaurants.
