Southover Bed and Breakfast Information

Description

Welcome to Southover Bed and Breakfast in Swanage, Dorset. Your hosts, Janice and Andrew, look forward to helping you to enjoy this wonderful area as much as they do. Southover is a modern home with every luxury you could wish for, built in traditional Purbeck stone, and located in a semi-rural setting above a lively seaside town in the heart of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage site. We are on the very edge of the town, next to open fields and offering blissfully quiet nights, yet only a short walk away, on pavements or across the spectacular Downs, from the town centre. The South West Coastal Path runs past the end of our road, and you can reach Durlston Country Park and Castle in minutes by road or footpath. Start your day with a delicious breakfast of top-quality local produce, in either the traditional English or continental style, which you can eat in our dining room, or on fine days, on the terrace with views across our pretty garden and open fields to Durlston Country Park. Then choose from the many leisure opportunities which Swanage and the Isle of Purbeck offer. After a busy day of swimming, walking or sightseeing, come back to tea then relax in your spa bath, or take a long, hot shower, before sampling the great range of pubs and restaurants only ten minutes walk away in the town centre. We have a small kitchen available to guests, with a fridge and microwave, where you can prepare your own picnics or evening meals, or you can have a barbecue in our courtyard. The beds have fine Egyptian cotton bed linen and you will find a pile of fluffy white towels.We even have beach towels on request. The rooms have flatscreen TV and we have a small library of DVDs at your disposal, plus a range of books, including a good selection of local history and guide books. Parking outside the house is unlimited and free. We can provide secure storage for bikes if required.
