With wonderful views across Swanage Bay towards Ballard Downs, Haven Roof Terrace is a delightful holiday property situated near the Victorian pier. Part of the Haven Complex – a collection of 32 apartments in a quiet location – guests staying here will undoubtedly spend a lot of time relaxing on the marvellous sun terrace that gives the property its name.  With two bedrooms, sleeping four people, this bright and cheerful property has a vaulted ceiling in the lounge and is a delightful place to enjoy a stay in this wonderful part of Dorset.

A modern and bright first-floor flat, 3 Durlston Court’s elevated position means guests staying here can enjoy sea views across Swanage Bay during their holiday in the resort. Sleeping four people and with plenty of room throughout, the apartment is a short stroll from the town centre and beachfront where shops, restaurants and pubs can found. With a dedicated parking space at the rear, this property is ideal for active visitors who can strike out on foot to the nearby Downs and Durlston Country Park.

If you are looking for a holiday apartment with a great location then 12a The Parade has it in spades.

As the name would suggest, Waters Edge Balcony Apartment is as close to the sea as you can get.  This fantastic two-floor property sleeps four and has a living room that leads out to a balcony set above the shoreline, treating you to views across the water towards Old Harry Rocks. Spacious throughout – from the kitchen diner to the bathroom with power shower – holidaymakers staying at Waters Edge Balcony Apartment adore the porthole windows in the bedrooms where more stunning sea views can be enjoyed.
