Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 10
This fine detached property is currently used as a highly successful guest house, but is equally suitable as a large family home and is situated in an excellent position some 500 metres from the town centre and beach. The original property is thought to date back to the 1920s, although substantially extended in later years and has been maintained to a good standard throughout.

The owners currently let 7 en-suite bedrooms from February through the summer months until October, providing an excellent income, with many customers returning year on year. There is considerable scope to increase this amount by extending the season, adding in school trips and evening meals. Full details of this successful B&B, including direct booking facility, can be found on the owners website The majority of the furniture, fixtures and fittings will be included in the price. A full inventory will be provided and attached to the contract in the event of a sale. In addition, the owners accomodation comprises 3 bedrooms (one en-suite), living room and bathroom. At the rear is an easily maintained courtyard garden, 5 parking spaces and double garage.

Swanage lies at the eastern tip of the Isle of Purbeck, delightfully situated between the Purbeck Hills. It has a fine, safe, 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. It is perfectly located for a coastal walk along the Jurassic coastal path and World Heritage Coastline, which incorporates Old Harry Rock.
