Damson Cottage was built recently of local stone in the traditional style of the much older cottages next door. It has very comfortable accommodation near to the SW Coastal Path, Priest’s Way, Durlston Country Park and Swanage Steam Railway at Herston Halt. Swanage Bay View's indoor swimming pool is just around the corner. There are fields and footpaths close by where you can walk with your dog.
The cottage is suitable for a family of up to six plus a baby. It has three bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs plus a cloakroom with shower on the ground floor. There is off-road parking for two (medium size) cars in line and an enclosed, southwest facing, garden.
The cosy lounge has a gas fired "woodburner" stove, two settees, two arm chairs, a small hi-fi with CD player, stereo 20" television, VCR and DVD player. Videos, DVDs, games, books and toys are also provided for your enjoyment.
The fitted kitchen/diner has a large fridge/freezer, electric oven/hob, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, the usual small appliances and a radio/cassette player. The dining area seats six. It opens onto the stone walled courtyard with a BBQ on the terrace. There is a side entrance from the parking area but note that access to the house and garden involve short flights of stone steps.
The staircase has two safety gates. One of the front bedrooms has a 4'6" double, the other has full size 3’ bunk beds. The rear, master bedroom has a 4'6" double, 14" TV and room for the optional travel cot. All bedrooms have wardrobes and bedside drawers.
