Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had a fantastic week and are sad to be going home. We've loved having so much space and using the pool every day. A relaxing week, been to Durlston (amazing views), Dorchester, Putlake Farm, Swanage Steam Train, the beach and the beautiful pier.

Anyway, thanks again, and hopefully see you again.

Wonderful holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a really lovely week at Purbeck Cliffs. Everything was so comfortable and thoughtfully planned out for a very relaxing stay. We particularly loved the beautiful garden, looking out onto it first thing in the morning, relaxing in the loungers watching the birds and wildlife and enjoying evening sun with a drink after a swim in the amazing pool was a real treat ,(the best pool in a holiday home we have ever seen with accessible Roman steps as well as ladder , so important). Lovely welcome bottle of wine and fruit from the owners who were very quiet and discreet above the apartment, but also friendly and helpful. We would love to return to this beautiful apartment in a lovely part of Dorset,thank you for a great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We really could not fault anything. Standard of cleanliness and comfort superb. Situated in lovely quiet surroundings. Having the indoor pool was an extra bonus ( who needs to go abroad ! ). We would have no hesitation in recommending this property.

There are many places of interest nearby including the National Trust Corfe Castle + Studlands beautiful beach, the steam railway, Lulworth Castle and the famous Durdle Door, Thomas Hardy’s cottage, Lawrence of Arabia’s cottage and memorial, Monkey world, Bovington Tank museum and for those needing ‘retail therapy’ the shopping centres of Bournemouth, Poole, Dorchester and Weymouth are all within striking distance.

Swanage is the hosts several festivals including The Blues festival in March, the Jazz Festival in July, Purbeck and Dorset Art weeks in May/June, Swanage Carnival (which very often includes a display by the Red Arrows) in July/August, the folk festival in September, Film festival in October and Blues /roots festival in October. There are local beer and cider festivals (The greyhound, Corfe, The Bankes Arms, Studland, The Square and Compass, Worth Matravers).


The gardens of Purbeck Cliffs are beside the peace and tranquility of Durlston Country Park, an area of outstanding natural beauty which stretches along Dorset's award winning Heritage coast. Purbeck is a unique part of Dorset where glorious sandy beaches and breathtaking coastal scenery blend harmoniously with peaceful, unspoilt countryside and picturesque villages.

Monkey World is 15miles away

Further Details:

We are lucky to be two minutes from the famous Jurassic Coastal Path with spectacular walks along the cliff to Dancing Ledge or Harry Rocks and the famous Studland Beach or go dolphin spotting near Durlston Lighthouse.

There are many places of interest to visit nearby including Corfe Castle, Monkey World, Arne Natural Reserve, Lulworth Castle, to name but a few.

This very special area has so much to offer: a wealth of attractions to suit all ages as well as sporting and leisure activities

A peaceful and relaxing way to see parts of this isle or peninsula, depending on who you talk to, is to take a train ride on the Swanage Railway. You can catch a 6 mile ride between Swanage and Norden where you will get to see the ruins of the historical Corfe Castle.

For the more adventurous, another way to see the sights is to take a 47 mile bike ride around the entire area, either splitting the ride up into a winding trek that can last a whole week or by doing a marathon ride that will take a one or two days, but will create long lasting memories. No matter how you choose to visit and travel in this enchanted land, you will not be disappointed by the wealth of things to see and do when you head to the Isle of Purbeck.

Durlston Country Park regularly organises events related to the heritage and wildlife of the Park and adjoining coast with many guided walks.
