Cottage in Ballard Down, Swanage, Dorset, England - Countryside Setting Yet Close To Beaches And Town, Lovely Walking Area
A family with several children who love the beach and countryside in equal measure. We have enjoyed so many special, fun times at the Cottage and hope you will too.
Why Ann chose Swanage
There are lots of lovely cottages in Dorset, but very few are really set in such a wonderful rural National Trust location, with great views and in close proximity to lovely beaches, great walks and the town. Many guests who love re-visiting the area had stayed elsewhere previously, but now come back regularly to Ballard Down Cottage.
What makes this Cottage unique
Unspoilt rural National Trust location, yet close to everything. An unmatched location; according to several estate agents. Easy parking at the cottage and a large garden with terrific views.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Great week in Dorset
Property is in a great location for access to beautiful Studland beaches. Large garden was enjoyed by our children.
A lovely cottage in a fabulous location between countryside and coast. Ideal as a base for walking and exploring the local area or just relaxing in the garden with beautiful sea views. Highlights of our trip were travelling to Corfe Castle on the Swanage steam railway and walking the coast path around Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door. Swanage beach is very family friendly with nice, calm swimming water while the Studland beaches have a more rugged backdrop and are good for watersports. Ann and Nigel were very helpful and their cottage was the most well-equipped we've stayed in.
Swanage get away
Lovely location and good facilities.
An amazing location
Ideally situated between Swanage and Studland and we all enjoyed being able to walk everywhere.
Lovely cottage in the most beautiful position, we had a lovely time here with our children, and would definitely stay again!
Thank you. Over the years, we have received lots of similar comments and calls from many guests who had stayed in the area previously at other properties, but hadn't discovered Ballard Down Cottage. In fact, we now have many, many regulars who like the unique and stunning Cottage location.
A great location, right next to the footpath to Ballard Down; it is so peaceful there. The house was very clean and has everything you need for your stay; definitely recommended.
Thank you. Many guests who know this beautiful part of Dorset well, make the same comments about the really special location compared to other properties they had stayed at previously.
In fact, many have become regulars and often then return with friends either to enjoy the National Trust location, walk the coast or just relax in the large garden and enjoy the summerhouse.
A five minute drive to the beach at Swanage or a walk of approximately 20 minutes. The three National Trust beaches at Studland are ten minutes away by car or you can reach Studland by walking over Ballard Down.
