Set in an enviable location in the pretty Dorset village of Studland, this welcoming house makes a fantastic base for family holidays exploring all that the coast and countryside have to offer
Soak up the far-reaching views across the rolling Dorset countryside and towards the sea from this inviting property for eight guests at Studland. Bring one happy hound with you if you wish and walk through the pretty heathland of National Trust land at Studland Bay. Soak up the sunshine in your large enclosed garden on warm days and throw another log into the wood burner when the weather is chilly.
Accessed via an unmade road, enter this light, four-bedroom holiday home and follow the hall into the kitchen/breakfast room. Take in the sweeping vistas from the many windows in here as you cook, then sit down together at the table. Carry your feast through into the dedicated dining room on special occasions and throw open the French doors in here to bring in a summer breeze. Find a quiet moment to yourself in the conservatory or light the wood burner in the lounge to keep you cosy as you watch TV. Find a shower room and utility area, with WC, also on the ground floor. Head up to the first floor to your bedrooms and family bathroom - one of these bedrooms has an en-suite shower room. Watch the children play on the lawn and keep an eye on them near the pond; enjoy coffee in the garden in the morning and fire up the BBQ on warm evenings.
Stroll to the beach, which is less than 1 mile away, to find 4 miles of golden sand; picnic or swim at Shell Bay, Knoll Beach, Middle Beach or South Beach. Wander through the dunes and woodland looking out for deer and birdlife. Visit the ruins of Corfe Castle, 6 miles away, to see the ruins of a royal palace and fortress. Drive just over 4 miles to spend time in Swanage, with its shops, restaurants, pier and steam railway.
