About Chris Atkinson

I am a business development manager in the Aerospace Industry. I have two children who have loved Swanage holidays. Therefore I can advise you on holidays with children as well as just adults. I am really happy to spend time with people on the phone talking about property, giving advice about what to do: where to go, where to eat. I will do everything reasonably possible to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

Chris Atkinson purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Chris Atkinson chose Purbeck

Great reviews, location, facilities....

What makes this cottage unique

Master bedroom private from first floor. TV & DVD on each floor, 100's DVD's, toy & games. Has the charm of a Purbeck build stone cottage but the convenience of a modern build. Close enough to town to be convenient but far enough away to be quite.

A perfect home from home

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home with no detail overlooked to ensure a perfect holiday. The living area and kitchen are very modern but comfortable, with seaside decor to make you feel you're really on holiday. It's easily walkable to town, has a very accessible parking area (gold dust in Swanage) and is also close to the lovely cliff top walks. The house was ready early which was so welcome after our long trip and Gill, the lady who cleans it, had left it spotlessly clean and texted us several times so we felt very welcome. She'd even left a carnival programme for us. At the end of the week we drove away and realised we'd left something behind. Gill was brilliant and posted it to us straight away. ChrIs was brilliant - sent us a welcome text (and left a bottle of wine) as well as messaging us midweek to make sure we were still enjoying ourselves. Without hesitation I'd recommend this holiday home. It far exceeded our expectations.

An excellent property - absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week at Easter with our two daughters (11 and 13) and had a fantastic time. The house is so very well equipped and to a exceptionally high standard. There is a vast amount of DVDs in the house to choose from and a toy box on the landing which our girls loved! Buckets and spades etc are provided which is really handy. The house has a nautical, modern theme which we really liked. It is in a great location being within walking distance of the shops, restaurants and beach. We are already planning to return next year. There is so much to see and do in the Purbeck area and this house is the prefect place to stay. A real home from home!

Beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, well equipped cottage a short walk from the seafront. It was spotlessly clean, well maintained and the information book made it very easy for us to adjust the heating etc. It was our second stay here and we will definitely be back.

There is everything you could need, including lots of toys for young children.

Chris, the owner, is great to deal with. He was very accommodating of our requests and extending our stay and equally understanding when we had a small wine spillage.

Beautiful holiday home and superb hosts

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Seashells for my birthday weekend. The house is beautiful inside and out. Every detail has been thought of. Toys for children to play with, loads of dvds to watch, comfy beds and a peaceful location. Parking is a definite plus too. The owner was brilliant at communicating and every question answered quickly. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

We loved our stay at this cottage. It had everything you needed and was decorated beautifully. The location was great with many lovely walks and amenities within a short walk. This is a beautiful part of the country to explore in a fantastic cottage. Chris was very helpful with our booking and answered all our questions very quickly. We are hoping to return next year.

Car: not necessary

Special interest holidays:

Swanage and the Purbecks is an ideal family location and also for those who enjoy walking, climbing or cycling. It is also popular for fishing with boat trips, pier and mackerel fishing available. Swanage hosts a fantastic carnival week, RNLI week, Jazz, Blues and Folk festivals, firework displays and Punch and Judy shows – not to mention the infamous Fancy Dress New Year festivities. There are some wonderful restaurants and cafes, great transport links and a real steam railway to Corfe Castle.

Coast/Beach:

10 minutes walk to the beach, 1 minute to local supermarket (7-11).

Travel:

Best way from London direction to go is via Bournemouth, through Sand Banks and across to Studland bay via the Chain Ferry, which is £4.10 each way so make sure you have the cash to hand.
