  • A wonderful family holiday home in a picturesque village with lovely south facing garden

Property code: DC033

Situated close to the beach at Studland Bay, this charming semi-detached Victorian cottage offers comfortable and cosy accommodation to a family looking for a quiet spot in a tranquil Dorset village.

This charming semi-detached Victorian cottage sits just 400 yards from the sandy beach at Studland Bay. Nicely presented throughout, the cottage displays fresh neutral decor, antiques and elegant soft furnishings. After a long day on the beach or on the water, return for an evening BBQ in the picturesque garden or dine out at one of the local pubs.

After a busy day, put your feet up in the stunning lounge, which has been decorated in soft pastel tones. This spacious room retains two handsome Victorian fireplaces, one of which houses an open fire, perfect for those cosy evenings in with a good book or film. By contrast, the kitchen/diner is a contemporary space with extensive glass windows and French doors that open onto the garden for a modern-day al fresco feel. In the summer, fling open the doors and head into the garden for a BBQ surrounded by flowers and trees. When it’s time to rest your head, a steep staircase leads to three comfortable bedrooms, a double, twin and single. There is parking for two cars on the shared gravelled drive.

With its long sandy National Trust beach, Studland is a popular choice among families. Relax on the sand, take a dip in the shallow water or hire a kayak to explore the dramatic coastline from the water. Afterwards, enjoy a bite to eat at one of the local cafes or, for those special occasions, book a table at one of the highly regarded restaurants. Wildlife lovers will enjoy a stroll through Studland and Godlingston Heath National Nature Reserve (1.5 miles), while those in search of something a little more cosmopolitan should catch the ferry across to Sandbanks (4 miles) and Bournemouth (8.5 miles).

What a lovely cottages. It was comfortable, clean and had everything you want from a holiday home. Tracey phoned to make sure we had milk and when we arrived we had some wine and scrummy chocolates as a welcome - nice touch. If it's important to you, the wifi worked well. Great location, only 10 mins tops to the pub and beach. Shame there wasn't soRead moreme more comfortable garden furniture, but this didn't bother us too much. We'd certainly go back. Hide

The property was a well equipt, charming period property. There were lots of nice touches such as wood left for the fire, a welcome note and follow up text to make sure we were settled in and all was well, lots of hooks in the bathroom so everyone could hang their towel up. The fact that washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets etc were left made lifeRead more very easy. The location was excellent for visiting the beach and making the most of the walking in the area. We had an excellent stay. Hide

Although it's just three hours from London and the South East, Dorset feels like a world away from the hubbub of the city. This gem of a county offers the very best of rural England: magnificent coastal scenery, vast sandy beaches, rolling hills, charming villages, country pubs, stately homes and medieval castles.

Take time to explore the dramatic and diverse coastline. Stretching 95 miles from East Devon to Poole, the Jurassic Coast has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status. Here, visitors can uncover Earth's fascinating history whilst enjoying unspoilt views over superb beaches, many of which welcome canine companions too. From the iconic rural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland, Dorset has it all.

Why not head to Lyme Regis, classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? Like much of West Dorset, it has an old-world ambience and offers excellent fossil hunting opportunities. Or head east to discover the beauty of Lulworth and the vibrant seaside resort of Swanage.

Steeped in history and with a certain quintessential charm, Dorset's glorious countryside is peppered with small towns and villages which are well worth a visit. Many are graced with fine buildings, immortalised in the books of Thomas Hardy, a Dorset-born novelist and poet. For more energetic visitors, footpaths and cycleways reveal the county's hidden secrets with the coast always close at hand for those who love the water.
