Cosy traditional stone cottage filled with character and charm in the seaside town of Swanage, the perfect base to enjoy fantastic coastal walks, surrounding historic villages and glorious beaches

The seaside town of Swanage has many great attractions, including a wonderful bay backed by a golden sandy beach, a great selection of shops, galleries, restaurants, cafes and pubs and amusements suitable for all ages. Spend your days exploring the Victorian Pier, or perhaps try your hand at fishing, diving and sailing, with boat hire available from the harbour. This stunning coastline is the ideal base for long walks via the South West Coast path or you can head inland and explore the many picturesque villages nearby, including Langton and Worth Matravers. A steam railway line runs from Swanage itself to the village of Corfe Castle, home to historic castle ruins that are cared for by the National Trust.

Situated in one of the oldest parts of Swanage and nestled in the centre of a small terrace, this delightful Grade II listed former quarryman's cottage dates back to 1750. It blends contemporary comfort with many original features, including a charming courtyard garden that leads to the entrance. Once inside you are met with a galley kitchen, equipped with an electric range style oven and hob, accessed via a curtain is a utility area with washing machine, fridge/freezer and microwave. With low doorways, compact proportions and a homely ambience, this room immediately gives you a sense of the history on offer in this beautiful property. Next door is an inviting lounge with a beautiful flag stone floor and striking fireplace complete with wood burner. This room is the perfect space in which to relax after a day spent exploring as it also has a TV/DVD and dining space so you can enjoy leisurely meals together. Leading on from here are a set of narrow and winding cottage style stairs, which take you up to the first floor. An optional stair gate on the landing provides peace of mind for those with younger children. There are two comfortable bedrooms, one a king-size and the other a bunk bedroom (suitable for one adult or two children), which share the bathroom. The bathroom is Jack and Jill style and accessed through either bedroom and has a hand-held shower over bath and WC. Due to the age of the property there are areas of restricted head height, steep stairs, changes of level and beams throughout, which add to its character and charm, but are not suitable for those with restricted mobility or children under 3 years old.

Heading outside via the kitchen brings you back into the small courtyard area, which is the ideal place to bring your morning coffee and relax, whilst enjoying the distant views over the Purbeck hills. The courtyard in enclosed by a low stone wall befitting its period. To the front of the property is a roadside parking space for one car.

The Nook was a wonderfully characterful and cosy cottage. Well equipped and setup for a lovely week away. We had a lovely week exploring the Isle of Purbeck. Recommended.
