Self catering group accommodation near Swanage

MYTIME’s R&R Retreat Accommodation Centre is surrounded by open farmland and just a short walk from the Jurassic Coast. It offers the perfect base from which to enjoy everything that the spectacular Isle of Purbeck has to offer. With a World Heritage Site and the South West Coastal Path on its doorstep, the Centre represents the perfect choice for lovers of the great outdoors. Mere minutes from the idyllic village of Worth Matravers and the popular Square and Compass Pub, there’s truly something for everyone to enjoy. Dormitory-style bedrooms, a large, self-catering kitchen and a communal lounge area accommodate up to 24 guests, while outside, there’s space on site for as many as 16 campers. The building is wheelchair-accessible and offers plenty of space for parking, so for a family get-together, hen or stag do, school trip or other sizeable group, the Centre represents the ideal destination. Facilities include a cosy log burner, table-tennis table and basketball court. With miles of wonderful walking paths to choose from nearby, why not bring the dogs along with you as well? History buffs will find themselves in their element; the Centre was built during WWII and is now all that remains of the radar development site that once stood at Worth Matravers.

We ask that you keep the noise to a respectable level, being conscious of the neighbours and that the sound carries. Also, that we would ask any music which is being played outside is turned off by 9pm.

This accommodation is featured on our map of Devon, Cornwall and the West Country and here is its own website.

Isle of Purbeck Reunion of Old Friends

November 4th 2009

We started our walk, straight from the David Donaldson Field Studies Base out along the coast path of the Isle of Purbeck. As soon as we reached the sea at Deadmans Bay we got held up by the hundreds of fossils set in the mud stone. The weather was so hot that the children swam and everyone waded out into the water to see the fossils set in the seabed.
