We have space for two or three cars at the back of the house. These are available to guests on a first come first served basis. There is also free unlimited parking on Exeter Road and Park Road very close to the house and if you are planning to use your car a lot during your stay may we suggest you use these for ease of access. Taunton House is located right in the heart of Swanage, very close to all the pubs and restaurants and a very short walk to the beach so you may not need your car at all.
