How to Find us
We are on the A351 within Swanage, 500 m back from the middle of the sea front
From Corfe Castle stay on the A351 until you have entered Swanage then after the skew bridge look for the 'Swanage Golf Games at Kirkwood Park' signs on the right.
From the Sandbanks ferry (queues likely toward Swanage friday pm's and weekend mornings but you can get out of the car and walk to a nice view of the water while waiting!) come into Swanage along the sea front, (sea on left), turn right into Victoria Avenue at the middle of the seafront (A351) then proceed through the lights. Go past the coach car park on the left and then look for the 'Swanage Golf Games at Kirkwood Park' signs on the left.
The reception is normally open between 9 a.m. and 5.30 p.m, it's not a problem to arrive outside these hours but just read the signs on the conservatory door, set up quietly, and come and see us in the morning. We stay open later for arrivals on fridays.
If you are arriving by public transport take the train to either Wareham then take a taxi or No 40 bus getting off either at Herston (slightly closer) and walking five minutes or the Swanage town centre and taking a 7 minute walk or a three minute taxi ride- or Bournemouth then taking the No 50 bus to Swanage town centre (very nice open top if weather is good!) Then walk (7 mins) or taxi (3 mins).
Coming from London direction on a Friday? The A31 across the New Forest can get log jammed, sometimes for several hours. You may be wiser to consider taking the A303 turning from the M3, past Andover, then A338 south to Salisbury, A354 past Blandford, then left through Winterbourne Kingston to Bere Regis then A35 toward Poole but then right after only 2kms to Wareham and onto A351 to Swanage. It's further but may be much quicker at peak times.
