Forget Me Not Cottage dates back to the 18th century and is believed to have been used as a Quarryman’s cottage. Steeped in history, the property sits in the centre of a National Landscape (formerly known as an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty) yet within just a short walking distance of Swanage town centre and beaches. It is the quintessential Dorset stone cottage packed with rustic charm, exposed stone walls, beams, nooks and crannies. Whether coming back from a beach walk and collapsing in front of a roaring fire or evening drinks in the sunny courtyard on a balmy summer evening this is a place that quickly feels like home.
