So much to see in Swanage!

Published: Thursday 28th Nov 2019

This family seaside resort is ideal for exploring the nearby picturesque villages or Corfe Castle, Lulworth and Worth Matravers.

The golden sands and clear blue sea mean that Swanage beach has been awarded a seaside award and a blue flag. With a safe bathing zone, it’s a family-friendly spot. No matter the season, a stroll along the prom, paddle in the sea or a dip in the rock pools will create memories that will never fade.

Our Wyke Dorset Cottage portfolio offers close to 100 properties in this immediate area from the traditional, cosy fishermen's cottages to modern apartments and family-friendly homes. There is something to suit everyone! Can’t bear to leave your 4-legged friend at home? No problem! We have a wide choice of pet-friendly holiday cottages too.

Looking for an adventure? Then look no further. Swanage Bay is home to a wide choice of outdoor activities – kayaking, paddle boarding, climbing and diving can all be found locally. If walking is more your thing then heading West or East on the coast path is a delightful way to spend an afternoon.

Not short on local attractions, why not spend a rainy day at Swanage Museum and learn about Swanage during WW2, the Jurassic Coast and the stone trade. Swanage Pier and Durlston Country Park offer beautiful views of the bay. The steam trains of Swanage Railway will take you on a trip back in time through the Purbeck countryside and past the iconic ruins of Corfe Castle.

This beautiful town is home to many artisans selling their creations. During the year there are numerous festivals – our favourites include the Pirate Festival and the Fish Festival. With a weekly Market (over the main tourist season months) you won’t be short of local produce and pastimes to enjoy.

The vibrant high street is full of pubs, café and restaurants – whatever cuisine you choose, a warm welcome will await you. A Swanage holiday isn't complete without a fish and chip supper overlooking the beach.
