The Isle of Purbeck is described as one of the most delightful parts of England and designated as an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the gateway to the Jurassic Coast covering some fifty square miles of unspoilt country which abounds with heath, woodlands, and rolling hills, and many places of historic interest.
Situation: South-East Dorset. London 123 miles. Bournemouth (via car ferry at Sandbanks) 11 miles. Wareham 10 miles. Dorchester 27 miles. Weymouth 29 miles. Poole 20 miles.
Lying at the eastern tip of the Isle of Purbeck and delightfully situated between the Purbeck Hills, it has a fine, award winning blue flag sandy beach, and is an attractive mixture of old stone cottages and more modern properties, all of which blend in well with the peaceful surroundings. Purbeck stone is the predominant material used in the construction of many of the properties in the area, giving the town considerable appeal and character. Swanage has an active shopping centre, with branches of a number of multiple stores. To the south is the Durlston Country Park area and Anvil Point Lighthouse.
