    Townsend Cottage sleeping up to 6 guests

    A beautifully furnished 3 bed end of terrace cottage in Swanage, packed full of character and close to the beach

    A truly delightful cottage situated in the Victorian seaside town of Swanage.  The owners have given a lot of thought on how to decorate and present the property to a high standard and it’s impossible not to fall in love with its charm and quirky artwork.

    Downstairs a very well equipped kitchen leads through to a spacious dining room and separate living room at the front of the property.

    The first floor has 3 bedrooms consisting of a double, twin and a delightful nautical bunk room for children. A secret door and steep steps lead up to a playroom in the attic with games and a TV plus separate small W.C. with basin.

    The property is ideally located in a residential area but close to all the amenities and local attractions and makes a great base for exploring this beautiful part of the Jurassic Coast.

    "I booked the cottage for a celebration weekend, what a fantastic base to start from. The cottage has everything, and I mean everything. It is geared up for rain or shine. It is a stone's throw away from several bars and shops, not to mention a few lovely fish and chip shops. Next door is The Black Swan pub, and the food there was fantastic, with a lovely space out back to sit and relax. We enjoyed our stay immensely, and will look back with great fondness."

    "Absolutely beautiful house, every thing you could possibly need in it, smelt lovely, very clean and beautiful decor. Our girls who are 6 and 9 loved the attic room, if we weren’t at the beach or walking round swanage in an evening they were in there playing with their dolls, they loved the doorbell I had to ring to get them to come down for breakfast! Every little detail has been thought of in this place to suit everyone. Alison the owner was excellent she phoned me a few weeks before as she was going to be away herself when we arrived, she also rung me when I realised I had misplaced the address ( whilst she was on holiday herself) and texted me to check everything was ok, always lovely to talk to and very helpful, couldn’t have asked for more from her. Would highly recommend this place it’s our favourite place to stay so far in swanage and we would definitely book it again in a heart beat! Thanks Alison."

    "We had a marvellous week in Swanage and beside amazing weather, landscape, seafront and company, the cottage that served us as "sea home" as my 4 years niece put it , contibute to it a lot. Beautifully decorated, practical, amazing for our two kids (4 and 10) that of cour enjoyed enourmsly having their own space in the "secret room under the roof". We ate every day in the garden and enjoyed cooking in the practical kitcken. This cottage will remain the set for some very nice memories !"

    "This was our 4th stay! Alison is so helpful to deal with. The house is comfortable, homely, fun for the children and spotlessly clean. So much thought has gone in to the extra touches in terms of both design and practicality (beach equipment, picnic sets/blankets, back packs, brolleys, waterproofs etc etc). The pub next door serves excellent food (book early), the all hours shop a few feet away is so useful. Indian takeaway in walking distance is ok for an easy dinner. Love Cake is well worth a visit! Everything is walking distance: town, beach and the country park (good breakfast to be found at Seventh Wave cafe). When we visit, we don't touch the car for the whole stay! Even if the weather isn't too kind, you can easily pop back to the house to warm up before heading out again. Ideal! We highly recommend a stay and will certainly return."

    "We stayed Friday 9th Feb to Monday 11th Feb. it was myself, my husband, our 4 year old daughter and my mother in law. The cottage is beautiful. Our daughter loved the bunk room and the secret room in the attic. We loved the cozy lounge with the fire on! Great kitchen. The cottage is beautifully decorated. Great, Central location. Very handy shop around the corner for essential items. Walk to the steam railway. We had a lovely time in Corfe visiting the castle even in the rain and wind! We enjoyed a Sunday roast in the Black Swan pub next door after my mother in law and I walked from Studland back to Swanage. Alison was so helpful with details, and it was very easy with the booking, directions and access. We Highly recommend staying here. We hope to come again. perfect for a winter or summer break!"
