Swanage Dorset 0870 442 0680

We say

Swanage manages to be both a charming seaside town and a bustling resort, set in a beautiful location beneath the Purbeck hills and with a superb stretch of town beach. This was Enid Blyton’s favourite resort and she based many of her Famous Five adventures on the area. In summer you can take boat trips to Bournemouth and Poole or hire pedaloes, and many events are laid on along the seafront (parts of which are closed to traffic in the summer holidays). There are also some great coastal walks in either direction. The town also marks the start of the Swanage Railway.
