Find a pretty holiday cottage to rent in a little tourist spot, in a little town in a little bay, called Swanage. A true seaside resort with all the traditional seaside thrills. Lashings of soft clean, safe sand, punch ‘n’ Judy shows, wooden huts, bracing clifftop walks, an amusement arcade, a charming 1960’s cinema…you name it, you will find it in this tucked away little spot…The Victorians absolutely loved it here and it is easy to see why. This is the place where you can lie back in the deckchair and tuck into a good old fashioned bag of fish and chips whilst you take in the views. On a clear day, you can see the outline of the Isle of Wight!

Information on Cottage Holidays in Swanage

Find a good self-catering accommodation in Swanage

SwanageThere are country cottages scattered along the Dorset coast but Swanage is a gem.  Apart from glorious coastal views and the nearby Durlston Nature Reserve, a beautiful curve of beach inside Swanage Bay makes it a great hit with families. And there is plenty to do for holidaymakers staying in Swanage.

Monkey World is just a twenty-five-minute drive from Swanage. Children love watching the animals swing from tree to tree with such precision fluidity. That instinct to know the distance from different branches and pull up their entire body weight without any effort at all…and those big brown eyes, so expressive, so soulful. Yep, you may have to mimic a few chattering monkey noises but you are on holiday, so go have some fun with the kids.

For history lovers, the Tank Museum in Bovington is bursting with its collection of mechanised armour dating back from WW1 and WW2 and leading right up to the present day. Any machine that has the capacity to destroy everything that stands in its way is bound to be a hit with boys. It is hard to imagine how big these tanks really are until you stand right next to one. There is also an interesting replica of a trench. This shows just how dangerous, smelly, dirty and disease ridden those long, narrow ditches were. There was certainly nothing glamorous about being on the front line, living in fear of enemy attack every second of the day and night. The whole experience certainly gives you something to think about. A great place to bring the kids, especially boys. Don’t be surprised to hear “tanks, that was brilliant” . Well worth a visit during your holiday.
