A holiday hideaway on the Jurassic Coast

Wake up to countryside, fresh sea breeze and a sweeping view of Swanage Bay in Dorset, full of energy for a day exploring this beautiful part of the country.

With the golden sands and shimmering sea of Swanage Bay right on doorstep, feel the sand between your toes and soak up the sun, paddle along the shoreline or watch the day disappear from your deckchair. Head just along the coast and enjoy the sweeping sands and dunes of Knoll beach at Studland, with views over to Sandbanks, or the secluded cove of Lulworth.

Explore the ruins of Corfe Castle and let your little ones play at being a knight or princess for a morning before stopping for a scrummy cream tea or slice of cake in the village. Or take a ride on the famous steam train and watch puffs of smoke curl into the sky while you wait to go aboard. You'll also find plenty of chocolate box villages and seaside resorts to discover, just around the corner. Take the chain ferry over the water to bustling Poole and its lovely harbour, where there are lots of places to eat, drink and shop.

Swanage Bay View is open from March until January so you can make the most of what Dorset has to offer throughout the different seasons!
