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.

Studland is great for families, singles or friend groups. Property is easy walk to all amenities. Banks Arms does nice beer and food. Pig on the Beach is very good but expensive and book before you arrive for your Holiday. Off road parking for 4 cars at a pinch. Swanage is an easy drive and worth a visit.

Our 3rd week at Greystones but were unsure whether to book again. Given the cost there are some easy improvements, which would make it much more comfortable. Saggy sitting room seating is uncomfortable for grandparents especially. A well equipped kitchen but the hob is temperamental. The single mattresses in the twin room are cheap and uncomfortablRead moree (yes mostly used by kids but they also need a good sleep, and if they dont it affects everyone). The furnishings just need a bit more investment. Hide

This is a beautifully located house if you like the great outdoors, with heathland on the doorstep and the beach a short drive away. It's spacious, clean, warm and comfortable. Our three-generation family holiday was a great success despite awful weather.

Lovely spacious house and large back garden. Very well equipped with everything you could need. Beautiful location, and amazing views. Wonderful for nature lovers and walkers. We saw sparrow hawks and squirrels from the kitchen window, and while walking nearby we came very close to some deer. We hope to return.

A lovely stay again at Greystones house in Dorset. We love the family friendly space with lots of activities on our doorstep as well as games and dvds and books in the house itself. It is a great location for walking. The only niggles would be the sofas and chairs in the living room which are getting a bit soft and saggy and so are harder for olderRead more people to get out of easily. Also the bed in the back double bedroom is not that comfortable, possibly due to slightly older mattress. Hide
