About Christine Reilly

I live in Wiltshire with my husband, daughter, three grandchildren and three dogs.

We also own a large property in Normandy France which we hope to be letting out soon.

Christine Reilly purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Christine Reilly chose Purbeck

We've been thinking about buying a property by the sea for a few years now, but hadn't really looked until now.

This was only the 2nd property we looked at and it was perfect, exactly what we had written in our wish list.

No hills to climb or steps down to the beach, everything is within walking distance and all on the level.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is located right on the seafront, you can hear the waves from inside with all the windows closed, the beach is 5 mins walk and the same for the High Street with lovely trinket shops, pubs and restaurants.

There are 2 fish and chips shops at one end of the Parade and smashing cafe at the other end that do wonderful breakfasts.

Next to the cafe is a Theatre and Cinema.

The town is very dog friendly and are welcome on the beach between September and May.

Swanage is an ideal base for exploring the beautiful Dorset countryside and coastline. Walk in the Purbeck Hills and along the Jurassic coast, now a world heritage site and part of the South West coastal path. Discover the Dorset countryside with its small towns and picturesque villages that appear to have changed little since Thomas Hardy wrote his classic novels. For Bird watchers, the RSPB reserve at Arne is nearby.

Very relaxing in a well-appointed flat.

  • 5 of 5

As my review title says, the flat was very well appointed with almost everything that you could want. "Almost everything"? Well, there weren't any toothmugs in the bathrooms! Can you see how hard it was to find anything to complain about?

Ah yes - one other thing (as Columbo would say); my car, a Vauxhall Omega, was too big to go in the allocated garage space behind the flat as the very narrow lane made turning into and navigating out of it impossible. Also, access to the lane itself was often blocked by tradesmen's vehicles and sundry other obstacles.

However, I parked in front of the flat, on the Parade itself, and only once did I have to move my car to another space nearby because the resident from the upstairs flat wanted to use her parking spot!

This was in February, but in full season, there may well be more competition for parking space, so com e with a smaller car than mine.....

To end on a more positive note, what could be better for easing the soul than to lounge about on a comfortable settee in a warm, centrally-heated living room and look out of the front window at Swanage bay? My blood pressure benefitted enormously.

Christine, thanks a lot - we will definitely book again in future.

Absolutely fantastic location !!. Right in the hub of Swanage just walk out the door and everything you need within a short walk, shops, great pubs, gigantic battered cod and chips like you've never eaten before just around the corner.

Holiday makers walk past the large bay window that looks out over Swanage bay in envy of the guests that of been lucky to have booked that week .

Many thanks Christina , jack and Ali Kim and mark will be returning next year
