  • "Excellent - exceptional breakfast, comfortable beds and immaculate rooms. Walls were a bit thin and there was some noise but still really cosy relaxing stay. Happily stay at Louisa Lodge if ever staying in or even close to Swanage or Poole area in the near future."

  • "If you like old school charm and decor then the Main part of Purbeck House will suit you perfectly, if your after something a bit more modern then you can stay in Louisa Lodge. Whichever you choose the breakfast and service will be brilliant, warm and welcoming. We chose the latter on a B&B tariff. Great value stay with all the charm and modern comforts. Purbeck had a lovely old country house feel to it and if you like your pubs that way, then the Square & Compass in Worth Matravers less than 15 minutes away by car is perfect, with no sign of it being modernised."

  • "Wonderful weekend at Railway Cottage B&B; Samantha and her family were lovely hosts. We had a great room that was clean and comfortable with all the mod cons. A delicious breakfast basket was delivered each morning to our room to eat at our leisure with pastries, yogurts, preserves, granola, cheese and cold meats, fresh fruit and juices. We would recommend to everyone wanting a relaxing getaway."

Local information

On England's southern coast lies the Dorset coastal resort of Swanage. Sitting on what is dubbed the 'Jurassic Coast', the town is popular with tourists and holidaymakers and has all the facilities expected of a resort. It is close to Dorset's other famous resorts such as Bournemouth, Poole and Weymouth. Anyone wanting to visit from Poole can save time and road mileage by taking the car ferry from Sandbanks which leads to Corfe Castle just a few miles further along.

Swanage has a certain quaint charm and is not as brash as many modern day holiday resorts. Its Victorian pier is particularly popular from where it is possible to look across to the Isle of Wight's 'Needles'. Boat trips are also available from the pier. Other attractions include the town's Beach Gardens and Heritage Centre. 'Heritage trails' are also available to allow visitors to see something of the old days gone by. Another way to see something of the area's delightful countryside is to take a run on the Swanage Railway.

The closest professional football club to Swanage is AFC Bournemouth, though non-league football is popular in the area. Being beside the sea it is not surprising that the town has its own diving and sailing clubs. The Isle of Purbeck Golf Club draws local and visiting golfers. Access to Swanage from Bournemouth is by using the renowned Swanage Ferry, a chain link ferry tha crosses the body of water that seperates the peninsula.

As would be expected, tourism makes a major contribution to the towns prosperity. The local Wealden Clay has led to brickworks being established on the town's outskirts. Dorset is a popular place for retirement and there are also nursing and residential homes in the area.
