Lovely apartment in great location
This is a lovely spacious apartment with a great balcony and in a perfect location. We had everything we needed for a great holiday
Stay in Swanage in June
Flat4 2 Highcliff Rise was ideally suited to our needs. It was very nicely appointed and everything was sparkling clean. The situation was very good with a pleasant walk along the front to the main town area
Lovely clean apartment, we loved the wrap around balcony, the bed was very comfy and car parking space was a bonus. Ideal location for beach, shops and eateries.
Great base, lovely apartment
We had a lovely stay, the apartment is really well located, and a good size. The balcony is an added bonus.
Only one thing missing for our stay, a corkscrew.
Glad you had a lovely time 😁 somebody obviously didn’t put it back 🙈 it will be replaced 👍👍

Swanage town and the beach is a good base from which to explore many things. Not only does Swanage have many restaurants, amusements, ice cream parlors, and plenty of independent, quirky little gift shops, it is the starting point of the Jurassic Coast. Old Harry Rock is a lovely walk over the hill towards Studland with incredible, panoramic views across to Poole Harbour, (the second largest natural harbour in the world) the Isle of Wight, Bournemouth, Mudeford and Christchurch.
Going the other direction, you will come to Durlston Castle which is worth a look. There's a small museum, cafe/restaurant and gift shop. The views are beautiful over Swanage Bay, Old Harry and towards Peverell Point. The walk from here to Durlston Lighthouse is great, too.
Further along the coastline, you will find Dancing Ledge, Winspit (fantastic caves), Kimmeridge Bay (fossil hunting) and Tyneham, the village lost in time; it was evacuated during the 2nd World War, and represents a snapshot of history that you can really get involved with, you can learn about the families that lived in the long abandoned homes and shops - there's even an old schoolhouse and mini museum - well worth a visit, followed by an easy wander to the beach at Warborough Bay, which is simply breathtaking. Please ensure that the ranges are open before heading out - online or Tourist information and National Trust will have the correct information for you. Why not take a picnic with you?
Monkey World and The Tank Museum are definitely worth a day trip as well, whilst you're here, and Corfe Castle is only 15 minutes by car - unless you'd prefer to catch one of the beautiful steam trains, which are still maintained daily by volunteers and enthusiasts, a truly unique and memorable experience - the steam trains run from the period themed station in Swanage Town.
There is a new water park - Dorset Water Park, which is great for the whole family - situated in the centre of Corfe, close to the castle. The village of Langton Matravers has Putlake Adventure Farm - perfect for smaller children, whatever the weather (5 min by car). Whatever you do in and around Swanage, please enjoy!
