The Owner Says

YHA Swanage is an elegant Victorian villa with fine views of Dorset's Jurassic coast and only a few minutes walk from a sandy Blue Flag beach. Swanage town often holds music festivals, art weeks and is a classic British seaside resort known as “Little London by the Sea” due to the many curious old architectural Londonlandmarks dotted around town.

Generally, school trip groups visit during the week, however we are still extremely popular with individuals and families for weekend breaks and for the perfect school holiday break.
