Seaside retreat. A stylishly decorated bijou flat overlooking Swanage Bay

A romantic bijou holiday flat just metres from the beach with stunning views over Swanage Bay and the Isle of Wight. On the second floor of a tall Edwardian town-centre building, the flat has been completely renovated and tastefully equipped with everything needed for a relaxing and comfortable stay. Just a stone`s throw from the award winning beach, cafes, boutique shops, galleries, pubs and restaurants, the central location is ideal for enjoying everything that Swanage has to offer.

A refurbished second-floor apartment with modern décor and plenty of art. High ceilings and large windows fill the spacious rooms with natural light. It is in a perfect location, central to everything. Swanage has so much to offer at any time of the year, and there is a wealth of things to see and do within easy walking distance of the flat.

The open plan living room and dining area is spacious with a deep three-seater sofa, coffee tables, a TV and free fast wifi. The dining table is situated in a large bay window, so you can enjoy the lovely sea view as you dine. There are four dining chairs with more available on request. The whole flat is an unusual wedge shape making most of the rooms intriguingly asymmetrical.

Tea towels, oven gloves, dish cloths, kitchen roll, liquid hand soap and washing up liquid etc are all provided.

There is a small chest of drawers and a large walk-in wardrobe with plenty of hanging space, shelves for clothes and storage for bags etc. An iron and ironing board is also provided.

A travel cot, high chair and backpack are available on request. (Guests need to bring their own bedding for the travel cot only) all other bedding and towels are provided.

The bathroom has a large and deep P-shaped bath with a powerful shower equipped with both a waterfall fitting and a handset. There is a tall, heated towel rail, three bathroom cupboards and underfloor heating. A hair dryer is provided.

Cosy and warm for our winter guests; the bedroom windows are double glazed; the apartment is centrally heated with radiators in every room. There is a folding single bed suitable for small people, and with the removal of 2 cushions, the living room sofa converts easily into a very comfortable single bed suitable for anyone.
