About Kathy Farrell

Hi,

As sisters, both of us live elsewhere in England with our respective families but love to have a bolt hole in the place where we grew up.

We hope you like our property!

Kathy & Helen

Kathy Farrell purchased this house in 1970

Why Kathy Farrell chose Purbeck

The house, Capstone, was first purchased by our mum in 1971 and at first we lived there while at school and returned regularly once we left the area. Now that ownership of the house has passed to ourselves we have made significant alterations to bring Capstone up to a standard for luxury holiday let. However we still love to visit Swanage and enjoy the comfort of Capstone.

What makes this house unique

Capstone is so convenient for the proximity to the town centre and beach, and not only that, for its 2 parking spaces that mean 2 families can enjoy using the house without worrying about parking.

Guestbook comments from the owner

An enjoyable return visit to Capstone - June 2016!



We thoroughly enjoyed our return visit to Capstone. The location must be one of the very best in Swanage, being near to the beach, shops, the wonderful steam railway and with parking for 2 x large vehicles. Capstone is an extremely well equipped, comfortably furnished spacious house, which is ideal for larger families or friends. Our family (age range from 67 years to 18 months) are very likely to return in 2017!



We would have no hesitation in giving Capstone the highest possible reference,

Thank you Kathy and Helen.

Comfortable and spacious house, close to seafront.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying at Capstone. Five of us were in Swanage for the blues fest and it suited our needs as it's quite close to the centre of town and had enough space for us to relax when we weren't at the music. The beds were very comfortable and the house was well equipped and warm.

Lovely relaxing stay

  • 4 of 5

House was lovely, bedrooms very spacious, kitchen well equipped, shower wonderfully hot.

Easy to walk into Swanage town and Durlston House just a couple of steep hills away.

Shame there is no grassed garden area to sit in as weather was beautiful for our stay.

Overall the 6 of us that stayed there were well impressed with our weekend visit. Thank you

Owner's Response: Hi Sue, Thank you for your lovely comments. We are very pleased that you had a great relaxing weekend. So sorry the lack of a larger garden seemed a concern, however with the beach and the park areas of Swanage within a few minutes walk we have never felt that this was a problem. We do appreciate your thoughts on this, however. Regards, Kathy & Helen

Usual great holiday stay

  • 5 of 5

Had a great 4 days as that was all the dates that were left.

In the sea every day and the beach was not crowded.

Location important as 2 of our party find walking hard.

Always good communication from Kathy as it is our 4 time here.

Hope to be back.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Capstone. The location was great, near to the beach and shops and we pretty much left the cars at the house all week. The house is well equipped with what you could possibly need whilst away and we made use of the inflatables left in the box outside.

We enjoyed our week so much we have already booked for 2017,

Thank you Kathy and Helen.

Idea

  • 5 of 5

Ideally situated for the Town, avoids costly parking fees. Nicely furnished and equipped, and with the amount of beds is ideally suited for a family now spread over the UK, to get together in this wonderful Town.

Many thanks to Kathy for making this possible.

Map

Coast/Beach:

500m - 5 minutes walk maximum to the main Swanage beachfront with its award winning beach. 3.5 miles to Studland beach. Fantastic walking along the coast from Swanage in both directions - to Studland or to Durlston and the Jurassic Coast

Travel:

Swanage is served by National Express coaches daily and Bournemouth is accessible by bus too. You can park up and never touch your car just going to the beach but it's a wonderful area to explore using a car - many wonderful walks and areas to visit along the Jurassic coast. The Swanage Railway runs excursions past Corfe Castle so you can visit Corfe and walk back. Also the Railway does specials like Thomas the Tank engine, and on-board Dining events - check their website for details.

Distances:

Studland 5 miles. Corfe Castle 4 miles. Wareham 9 miles. Bournemouth via the Studland ferry 10 miles. Poole via Studland ferry 10 miles. Lulworth 12 miles. Monkey world 15 miles. Bovington Tank Museum 15 miles. Dorchester 20 miles.

Further Details:

Swanage has many good restaurants, two local supermarkets (short walking distance in town), theatre/cinema, several local banks with ATMs

Lots of excellent pubs in the area too - information left in the property for you.

Diving outfit on the pier in Swanage for scuba diving trips - Swanage Pier is a renowned diving site!

Many boat operators near Swanage Pier operate coastal sight seeing or fishing trips

For wildlife, Durlston Country Park is 1.5 miles from the house (possible to walk as well as drive there). RSPB Reserve Arne is 10 miles away outside Corfe Castle - wonderful for wildlife and great views of Poole Harbour.

Many great weekend festivals held in Swanage each year, from Jazz, Folk and Blues weekends to Comedy and Walking Festivals - check out local websites for information.
