About the hotel
Oxford House is a handsome late Victorian building three minutes walk from the pier with fine views over the bay from a number of rooms on the upper floors. The atmosphere is relaxed and informal and all our bedrooms are comfortable and quiet. Park Road is mainly residential and is close to the town centre, the beach and the Jurassic Coast World Heritage site.
Climbing, diving and golf are among the many activities available locally. No car is required to access most facilities, and for the less strenuous there are many fine walks, both along the Jurassic Coast and inland. Swanage is where the land stops and the sea and the sky begin. It is a place to cross over and a place to step back in time. It owes its existence to its beach and to the white heat of the Victorian technological revolution. It is a child of the Victorian railway age and it remains true to its parents. Ours is a town centre which has not been redeveloped. The phrase "time warp" is often used to describe the place and clocks definitely need to be adjusted to Swanage time. If all these activities sound a little too exhausting why not simply sit by the quay and enjoy a plate of oysters and a glass of wine. Swanage is a gateway to the Jurassic Coast and is on the South West Coast path. It is an ideal location for exploring the coast but don't forget the inland walks which range from rolling hilltops to mysterious heaths.

Lovely, characterful B&B
Janis at Oxford House went out her way to make sure we had a very enjoyable stay.
My only word of advice would be to confirm with her by phone (not email!) when you are planning to arrive.
