Eldon Terrace was originally built in the early 1890's by Lord Eldon as accommodation for his workers at the railway.
The railway was operated by the London & South Western Railway Company and was used for conveying visitors to the seaside and also for the transport of Purbeck stone via a stone yard at Swanage and ball clay via sidings at Furzebrook and Eldon. Easter Cottage being the end cottage and therefore slightly larger was allocated to Lord Eldon's Steward and remained as a part of the family estate until 1926 when it was sold by his Trustees for the princely sum of £300. Now forming part of the Northern boundary of Swanage's Conservation area Eldon Terrace has received a Grade II listing as ?A fine example of late Victorian estate housing".
We purchased Easter Cottage in 1990 and opened our doors as a Bed & Breakfast in the spring of 1991.
