Access Statement for Angel Cottage

Updated 2023


Angel Cottage is a mid-terrace Grade II Listed, Purbeck stone cottage, thought to date back over 200 years.  It has been sympathetically renovated and modernised, but still retains many characterful features. It is situated in one of the oldest areas of Swanage, just over a mile from the town centre yet within 500 yards of a local convenience store.  There are also 2 pubs (all within a short walk).  Some stunning walks can be accessed directly from the cottage, including the ‘Priests Way’ and Coastal Path.

It is a non-smoking cottage and suitable for one well behaved dog
