Discovering Dorset: home swap overlooking Swanage Bay


Brilliant home swap overlooking Swanage Bay

"We had such a brilliant holiday swapping to Sebastian's lovely flat on the seafront overlooking Swanage Bay. Prior to the home swap, we had a Zoom meeting with Sebastian and Karen - this was really good and gave us a good idea about what we both liked.

We loved the aesthetic of the flat and the stunning sea views from the bay window. Even though the weather was not consistently good, we managed lots of amazing walks on lovely quiet beaches - we even had several beaches totally to ourselves. We got in some great outdoor swimming - on one swim we were joined by seals!

It's not an area we knew but we are completely hooked and there's so much to do there we will have to plan a return visit. We enjoyed fish from the local fish shop, steak from the local deli and managed to get in a couple of performances at the Mowlem, about 2 mins' walk from the flat. Also loved Durlston Country Park which was ideal for a lunchtime dog walk.

The scenery is stunning, and after spending the days exploring and with the sounds of the sea - we slept so well.

We couldn't have had a better home swap. Thank you so much Sebastian & Karen!"
