We are delighted to introduce Seagulls Rest, located on a small exclusive development of beautifully
designed homes. This seaside home has been tastefully furnished in a modern style with quality
contemporary furniture. The large open plan kitchen, dining area and lounge has access to the large
balcony with outside dining furniture and views across to Ballard Down. Both double bedrooms
benefit from ensuite facilities with the ground floor bathroom acting as a family bathroom with a Jack
'n' Jill design. There is a private and secure ground floor patio and garden with table and chairs and
BBQ making this a safe environment for children. There is ample storage under the raised balcony for
storage of bikes etc. and can also be used for the 2nd parking space although it won't then be secure
as the gates cannot be closed.
Swanage is the eastern gateway to Dorset's World Heritage Jurassic Coast with many miles of
footpaths and bridleways, making it the ideal place for walkers, cyclists and horse riders alike.
Swanage hosts numerous festivals and events throughout the year,and is home to a wealth of
attractions: from its award winning Blue Flag beach and Victorian Pier, to the beautiful countryside.
The Swanage Railway, one of the best preserved standard gauge steam railways in the UK, runs from
Swanage to Norden through the beautiful Isle of Purbeck and passes close to the famous ruins of
Corte Castle. Nearby places to visit include Durlston Country Park, Putlake Adventure Farm, Lulworth
Cove, Studland & Wareham. A lovely day trip across the Studland Ferry will take guests to the larger
towns of Poole and Bournemouth.

Very clean. Well equipped. This is the third time we have used this property.
My two grandchildren always enjoy staying here.
John Rogers 19/08/2019
Had the best week at Seagulls Rest, modern, clean holiday home with lots of space. Had everything we needed, a great base for exploring Dorset.
Rachael Tindall 10/07/2019
Ideal holiday base for exploring the Isle of Purbeck and surrounding area.
J. Moore 17/06/2019
We had a lovely time. House v clean and v good standard.
Mary Ames 18/04/2019
Lovely property very clean and lots of little extras to make all the difference. Beds very comfy and clean. Who ever owns this it was a pleasure staying in your Seagulls Rest.
Pauline Phipps. 15/10/2018
We enjoyed the house it was warm and comfortable. We didn’t find the parking of the two cars a problem and managed the utilities with very little difficulty as the owners had left instructions.
It was actually quite nice to be just a little out of town as there was a handy store nearby for any shopping we needed within walking distance.
I actually have a walking difficulty and the only small suggestion maybe for the provision of a slip resistant mat for the upstairs shower.
It was a good holiday in spite of a day or two of windy weather.

Response: Thank you for your lovely review. I believe a non slip mat is available, however I will ensure this is checked as being present. We hope to welcome you again in the future.
Philippa 02/10/2018
An excellent place to stay with everything we needed (other than a bottle opener). About a 15 minute walk to the beach front which was fine for us. Would recommend to anyone.
Julie Edmunds 14/09/2018
The property was perfect for our holiday. Simply and nicely decorated and the owners had thoughtfully provided a tea towel, washing up liquid, hand soap and loo roll. It was exceptionally clean and ready for us when we arrived.
The location is super for Swanage and surrounding places. Perfectly placed on the 40 bus route which takes you to Wareham and Corfe as well as Swanage, which links you to the other bus routes for the Jurassic Coast but the walk from the house to Swanage is only 10-15mins.
Highly recommend.
Only shame is that towels aren’t provided. The hire company that was recommended to us was actually on holiday in August and wasn’t hiring towels.
Samantha 31/08/2018
We loved the property , with good sized bedrooms and ensiuts and a lovely decked area . I would book this again in a flash if only it was located nearer the town and beaches . It is a fairly long way into town and back again so this would put me off rebooking , perhaps this should show in the pricing .

Response: Thank you for your review, Seagulls Rest is situated just 0.8 miles from the town an beach.
Mark lane 17/08/2018
Seagulls Rest is a modern, well equipped, comfortable property. All of the facilities were of high standard. We particularly liked the superb shower and the very reliable WiFi.

It was located in a quiet part of Swanage but was still easy to reach all of the facilities in the town.
Roger 25/06/2018
We were pleased with the cleanliness and presentation of the cottage and it had everything we could possibly need. The welcome tray and wine were a nice touch. The cottage was ideally located for exploring the area by foot and by car.
Sandra Griffiths 18/06/2018
Seagulls Rest is a lovely house. Very well maintained and very clean. We were very happy there.

We thought there would be a high chair there for a young child but we couldn't find it. My daughter with her 2 year old joined us and we were puzzled by lack of high chair.
Mary Ames 16/04/2018
A Very nice modern property with every thing you need.
martyn clark 12/10/2017
A wonderfully kept house that gave us a lovely home for our holiday.

The staff from Dorset Cottage were always friendly and helpful.

I would recommend using Dorset Cottage Holidays to anyone visiting Dorset
Pat bannon 14/08/2017
We have stayed in this property for three years running. It is clean, well furnished, well located and has a design that suits our extended family. The quiet and sunny location is perfect and we appreciate the outside space even though it is small.
The Harris Family 04/08/2017
Great apartment on 2 levels. Really nice location within easy walking to the town. Quite private with 2 drinking areas
Very tastefully equipped with not cheap stuff. Really fresh bedrooms and 2 bedrooms with very nice ensuites. Would not hesitate in recommending this place to anyone young or old.very roomy for larger families 2 albeit there was only two of us mostly.
Colin Taylor 13/06/2017
As ever house was already when we arrived.
Only 2 minor observations 1.a hair-dryer would be useful
2. more than 4 teaspoons would be good

But in all spot on
larry birch 24/10/2016
The house was well furnished and clean.. My six year old granddaughter loved the balcony. I would recommend the house and your agency to anyone.
John Rogers 26/08/2016
We have visited this house before and will likely book again. The decor is smart, clean and comfortable. There is plenty of space and it is not far from the beach and town. Parking is good, it is a quiet area. The information left in the house is useful and the kids very much appreciated the wi-fi.
Mrs. H. 05/08/2016
We all enjoyed our stay at Seagulls Rest. The family enjoyed the lack of clutter combined with good, tasteful furniture.
Over the many years that we have been visiting Swanage this is certainly one of the best properties we have used.
Could have done with a clothes airer so we bought one large and a couple small and left them there.
There was more outside space than we were expecting, a washing line and (for the first time in Swanage) clear bin instructions,
Everyone thought the keysafe was a great idea and much less stress than endless key worries.
Thanks for a good holiday.
Katie Harris 20/08/2015
We loved our week in Dorset and we're lucky with the weather. Seagull's Rest was well equipped and very comfortable for our party of 5 adults and one toddler. We would definitely go to Seagull's Rest again.
R Rogers 23/06/2015
The house was fantastic, very modern, lots of space, quite location and a short walk to the sea front. Will definetly book again.
Mrs K Vowles Apr 2015 09/05/2015
