Stay in Swanage

Whether you’re looking for a hotel, comfortable B&B or hostel, we have it covered in Swanage and the surrounding villages.

Enjoy a home from home feeling with our welcoming and experienced accommodation proprietors. Many of the rooms on offer will include either a sea view or will be located within walking distance of the coast or beach. Sample a scrumptious Dorset breakfast made with our local produce including local dairy products, meat, honey and jam, cereals, tea and bread.

Relax and unwind

A hotel break by the sea can be a real tonic. Whether it's for a celebration or just an opportunity to relax and unwind away from day-to-day life, your holiday by the sea will be one to remember.

Swanage has three large, well located hotels with restaurants and gardens - The Pines Hotel, the Grand Hotel and Purbeck House Hotel.

A great base for a walking holiday

Particularly popular with walkers, Swanage and the Isle of Purbeck have many accommodation choices which are equipped with special facilities for people on a walking or cycling holiday, including baggage drops, drying rooms and secure cycle storage.

Look out for accommodation showing Walkers Welcome and Cyclist Welcome logos.

Family rooms

Many of the larger B&B’s, guest houses and hotels offer a warm welcome to families and are equipped with additional family-friendly items to help make your stay more comfortable. Advanced booking is recommended for family breaks as this will help you choose from a range of options for all budgets.

Can’t bear to leave your canine friend at home?

That’s not a problem as we have many places for you to stay, eat and visit which will welcome your faithful companion. Look out for our pet friendly accommodation where your dog can holiday with you.
