Railway Cottage Guest House
Railway Cottage is the perfect location for a holiday or short break on
the Dorset coast.
We are ideally situated in Swanage, less than 5 minute's level walk from the beach, bus service, the famous Swanage steam railway and the town centre.
We are a room only guest house and do not supply breakfast - our prices reflect this.
There is a key system which allows you to check in at your own convenience anytime after 1pm.
You will receive a text in the week prior to your stay with all the check in information.
Dogs are more than welcome - we are one of the few places in Swanage that take dogs!
We no longer have parking, but we are directly opposite the King George car park which have very competitive rates (you can find rates on swanage.gov.uk/carparkcharges). You can also park for free on Northbrook Road and parts of Rabling Road, which are both about a minutes walk from us and it is rare that you can't find a space
We do not check guests in or out due to having a key system. Guests seem to prefer this as they have much more flexibility with arrival times and can leave as early as they like.
Payment of cash/cheque can be left in your room when you check out unless you have already paid through an online booking system.
All rooms have tea/coffee facilities of which you can top up yourself from our supply in the guests hallway.
We supply a set of towels per person, per stay.
All rooms are ensuite.
All rooms have a fridge.
Rooms are on the basis of self catering so we will not enter your room over your stay. We provide washing up liquid/tea towels etc so that you can refresh your tea cups if needed.
Open all year, families welcome.
Our best contact is through our website email - we will try to reply within 24 hours.
Please note that we are a cottage and therefore some of our rooms are compact, but fitted to make the most use of the space.
