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 Swanage
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.

Easter in Swanage
Really lovely apartment, we thoroughly enjoyed the break even though the weather was not kind. Just be aware that you will really struggle with the parking space if you have anything bigger than a medium sized car, we just about squeezed in a Vauxhall Corsa. Everything you need is right on the doorstep - I would definitely go again.
Very relaxing in a well-appointed flat.
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.
Why would you ever want to stay anywhere else
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
Fantastic apartment with views of the harbour
We enjoyed our stay here & wished we stayed longer, modern apartment with everything you need & more, fantastic views of East Dorset Coast, close to the shops, pubs, takeaways, restaurants, plenty to do in & around Swanage & would recommend Swanage railway . Will be booking again for another break.
Thank you so much for your lovely comments, we look forward to your next visit.
