About sarah thorneywork
Having first visited Swanage as a couple, Ian and I fell in love with the place, so much so, that once we'd had our children, we felt it was the perfect place to buy a holiday home, to enjoy as a family...far enough away to feel like we've been away, but close enough to escape to, even if it was only for the weekend. We've had some absolutely fantastic times here & still do, but as the children are getting older, they have more commitments at the weekends, and so we seem to spend less and less time down in Swanage. So, we have made the decision to let out our second home, and offer others the opportunity to discover the charm & allure of Swanage! Happy holidays from us all..Sarah, Ian, Tom, Henry & Lily x

Easy to walk to most attractions in Swanage. The property was clean and welcoming, catering for most needs. Plenty of attractions close by such as Corfe and the Jurassic Coast.
Lacked wardrobe space in top floor bedrooms.
Listing states "No pets allowed" however, on occasions, we found that dogs had been to the property.
Wonderful family house
We had a fabulous family weekend, loved that it was the family’s holiday home. It was beautifully decorated & just a lovely place
Great weekend Stay
5 females celebrating a 60th birthday, great location for walking trip. House nicely furnished, good quality sheets and towels which as middle-aged females most appreciated. Would definitely recommend.
Great property. Ideal location. Super size of bedrooms and everything a family needs.
Second visit and it’s such a great property for a family. You could probably sleep two families if you so wish. Great location. Short walk to beech, town etc.
Excellent accommodation for the 7 of us in a great location.
Cosy lounge, great bedrooms, well equipped kitchen, nice little courtyard,easy parking for 2 cars. Great location - quiet but near to town centre, beach and pubs!
Would visit again!
Lovely home which contained everything we might need. About 5-10 minutes walk to shops or beach. Great location.

Swanage is a gem of the Dorset coast! In this unique area, glorious sandy beaches and breathtaking coastal scenery, blend harmoniously with peaceful, unspoilt countryside and picturesque villages of mellow stone and golden thatch. This very special area has so much to offer, from the traditional seaside holiday, with safe, award winning beaches & excellent family facilities, to the stunning Purbeck hills and Jurassic coast.
Swanage's dramatic landscape offers wild flowers and heathers in spring, brilliant sunshine and lazy summer days, warm autumn colours over the hills and heathland and country pubs with log fires, blazing on winter nights. There are so many things to do and see; many bridleways and footpaths for mountain biking, rambling or horse riding, local swimming pools, tennis courts, an indoor and outdoor bowling green, a funfair and amusement arcade from Easter through to October and between Swanage and Studland, a golf course to while away the hours. The romantic ruin of Corfe Castle stands just a few miles from Swanage. Why not take a step back in time and take a trip there on the steam train? For food there are the traditional fish and chip restaurants, good local pub grub, tapas bars, Indian and Chinese cuisine and other treasures that can be found within walking distance. At the far end of the town is the Victorian pier, home to diving centres, boat and fishing trips from the quay and wonderful events, with plenty to do in the summertime.
