A glorious week in Purbeck

Studland beach, PurbeckWe’ve just had a lovely comment and some photos in from a guest who’s been enjoying a week in Purbeck that we wanted to share…

“Just had the most glorious week in Dorset. The Weather was outstanding and the scenery just stunning. It was like being abroad – only better. The fantastic, scenic Jurassic coastline of Studland Beach is kept exceptionally clean by the National Trust. There are so many beautiful little villages with quaint cottages with thatched roofs and quirky facilities, and I was staying in a cottage of perfection, perfectly and more than adequately suitable to my family’s needs and requirements. Exceptional service from Dorset Coastal Cottages, the accommodation I booked was out of this world and I was only sorry I had to leave.

I just can’t wait to return!”

We love Studland beach too, Jane doesn’t mention where she went for lunch, but we would heartily recommend The Pig on the Beach if you fancy treating yourself.

Wareham, DorsetIt looks like they also visited Wareham which if you don’t already know, is a historic market town on the river Frome. Founded by the Saxons, it is still surrounded by the ancient earth town walls built by Alfred the Great in the 9th century. Wareham Quay is a fantastic place to enjoy a drink or a bite while watching the river traffic.

Studland commonAt some point they must have pulled over by the side of the road to enjoy the view over Studland Common to Brownsea Island and Poole Harbour. Probably to enjoy an ice cream from the van that’s often parked there.

Purbeck is a unique and stunning part of Dorset with plenty to see and do.
