This substantial Victorian property offers elegantly styled spacious accommodation arranged over 3 floors with superb views of Swanage Bay from the front. The property has been extensively renovated to a high standard by the current owners retaining a wealth of fine architectural detail. From arrival, through to the guest suites and proprietors accommodation, it is immaculately furnished and equipped throughout.

Currently arranged as a mix of 12 Boutique Guest Suites and 2 Bedroom Proprietors accommodation, the latter could easily be re-configured to upgrade the proprietors accommodation to 4 bedrooms with personal staircase access.
