Rowena Cottage

In association with Trinity House, Rural Retreats is pleased to present Rowena Cottage at Anvil Point Lighthouse.
Rowena Cottage sleeps five guests and is one of two holiday cottages at the lighthouse, situated within the grounds of Durleston Country Park, approximately two miles up the hill from Swanage town centre, which offers a variety of shops, restaurants, pubs and other facilities. As you turn off the main road and begin your "off the beaten track" path to your cosy accommodation, you'll feel like you've just stepped off the treadmill of your busy life; and if you arrive after dark, there's nothing like the welcome of a lighthouse beam to greet you!
Perfect year round; from enjoying summer sun on the nearby beaches, to snuggling up to witness amazing storms in the colder months; indeed many of our guests feel a little cheated if the weather has been too calm! If you're looking for a holiday with a difference; a complete break from the metropolis; a breath of fresh air and countless coastal walking opportunities, then look no further.
