The apartment is fully booked for 2016 but bookings now being taken for April-September 2017. Short breaks (min. 3 nights) considered outside high season.

NB: There are steps up to the front door of Osborne House, and so the apartment is not ideally suited to those who have difficulty with stairs or for very young children.

The Isle of Purbeck region

Swanage is a great holiday destination with its bustling town, beautiful sandy beach and wonderful scenery. Attractions include its world famous Jurassic coastline giving walks to Old Harry Rocks and Durlston Castle, the delightful Swanage Railway, regular folk, jazz and blues music weekends, and not forgetting the Carnival & Regatta week in August.

Being a seaside town, Swanage has got plenty of trinket shops, and there are two supermarkets. There is a huge choice of cafes and restaurants, and you can browse the menus in the windows.

Swanage bay has over a mile of sandy beach (complete with a Punch & Judy show in the summer months). The Steam Train runs to and from Norden, just beyond the picturesque village of Corfe. There are boat trips to Old Harry Rocks, and to Bournemouth and Poole. The open top buses will take you to Bournemouth via the Sandbanks ferry. Other activities include fossil-hunting on the cliffs, walking over Ballard Down and along the South West coast path. There is a Tourist Office on the seafront.

Swanage is a musical mecca and during the year it hosts blues, jazz and folk festivals. The Carnival & Regatta week at the beginning of August will delight everyone, young and old, and wonderful firework displays are held on Saturdays throughout August.

“We enjoyed it so much I have already paid my deposit for next year.”

Reviewed 9 Nov 2016

We had a good week and the flat was great. I enjoyed looking out of the window in the morning at the sea whilst drinking my coffee.

Thank you for your review and I am pleased that you have booked again.

“Perfect holiday”

Reviewed 14 Aug 2016

i stayed here with my family (wife and 2 daughters 6 and 9) and we had a fantastic time. We were very lucky to have the weather and this was a real bonus. Osbourne house is lovely and in the best position in the town. It has great views of the sea, close to amenities and opposite a beautiful park. It has everything you need and is clean and comfortable. Unfortunately due to the many eateries in swanage I put on a few pounds and broke the toilet seat. A quick email to the owner and she had it sorted in a jiffy. Great service. The beach is fantastic and very safe for young children to gain some confidence in the sea. There is always something going on and there is a great vibe and mixture of people. We went on the Purbeck breezer open top bus to Bournemouth which was a nice day out and we soon realised why it was called the "breezer" but it was great fun. I feel I want to keep this place as much of a secret as I can but anyone who comes to Osborne house will have a great holiday. We will definitely be back soon and can't wait.

Thank you very much for such a glowing review.
