Welcome to our house

Welcome to Woodlands, Swanage.

Woodlands provides older people the privacy of their own accommodation combined with the companionship of others, home cooked meals, and the security and support of the dedicated house staff. 

Originally built as a family home, Woodlands maintains many the family atmosphere today for its nine residents.

We have eight en-suite rooms and one one-bedroom bungalow. All rooms are provided unfurnished allowing residents to add a personal touch when they move in.

Our wonderful housekeeper is known as an excellent cook and provides two nutritious meals a day. Breakfast ingredients are also provided in your room allowing you to start your day when it suits.

Located in a residential part of Swanage, we have excellent links to the town centre and coast, boasting beautiful sandy beaches.  Popular with tourists, Swanage always has something to keep us entertained.
