Situated in one of the oldest parts of Swanage, this delightful Grade II listed former quarryman's cottage dates back to 1804. Over the years the cottage has been beautifully modernised and refurbished without losing any of its charm.

Little Steppes sits next to St Marks Church in Bell Street. The road has a peaceful and village like feel to it, yet the town centre and beach are only around a mile away. The South West Coast Path can easily be accessed from the top of the road, leading onto miles upon miles of stunning world heritage Jurassic coastline.

Downstairs the rooms have plenty of original features including exposed Purbeck stone walls and fireplace and beamed ceilings. The quirky characterful bathroom has been beautifully finished. Steep stairs lead up to 2 bedrooms.

Stable doors lead out onto a raised rear garden, laid to patio with a variety of plants and hedging. The garden is largely secluded with views across to the Church and a side gate leading to the front of the cottage.

Great first time experience for our first time with Wykes and thanks so much for arranging alternative arrival /departure times. Also huge thanks for helping when we locked ourselves out on the last day!

Mr Ian T,

Cottage was really clean throughout and welcoming

Mr Anthony B,

As a family we have booked through Wyke many times. I can truthfully say Wyke is most definitely my preferred holiday agent in Dorset and I’ve been visiting for 20 years. Well done for consistent, professional and courteous service.
