A lovely location on the Isle of Purbeck and an easy driving distance to Dorset’s best attractions makes Swanage a prime destination for a seaside escape. Charming streets lined with Victorian cottages make up the heart of the town, while its outskirts are littered with beaches boasting breathtaking views across the English Channel. Swanage holidays are ideal for those who love being at one with nature. Enjoy leisurely strolls around Swanage Bay to Peveril Point or venture along the winding paths of Durlston Country Park to the dramatic Tilly Whim Caves. You could also pop into the maritime museum located within the 19th-century Swanage Pier. Or, how about hopping on the vintage Swanage Railway to nearby Corfe Castle — one of the most majestic medieval strongholds in England?

You’ll be within reach of several other stunning Dorset towns, too. Weymouth and Lyme Regis are great for a classic beach day out, while Poole Harbour is packed with historic gems like Brownsea Island and Castle. Swanage is additionally the perfect jumping-off point for road trips along the gorgeous Jurassic Coast to see Old Harry Rocks and the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

No matter what you add to your trip itinerary, you’re guaranteed to be staying somewhere spectacular when you book through Cottage Holidays. Browse modern barn conversions with plenty of bedrooms for the whole family or escape to Swanage with your other half to slumber in a quaint fisherman’s cottage overlooking the town’s pretty harbour.
