Where to find us


Dunford House is situated in Dunford Place, a quiet, traffic free location close to the historic centre of Swanage.

We think it’s a great location… on the doorstep is the renowned Black Swan Inn (the oldest in Swanage).  Arkwright’s convenience store is literally round the corner and just another few steps away is one of the most characterful parts of old Swanage – centred around the church and the Millpond.

Head south for a couple of minutes and you reach Townsend Nature Reserve and beyond that Durlston Country Park.  The town centre and the beach are just a 5 minute stroll in the other direction. For the more energetic, the start of the Priests Way is equally near – a pleasant 2 mile walk to Worth Matravers where your efforts can be rewarded by a pastie and a pint of homemade cider at the Square and Compass Pub.

Unrestricted parking is available in adjacent roads.

However, you will find that you do not need to use your car to enjoy the many delights of Swanage as so much is within a short stroll.
