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

The beautiful sands of Studland Bay are cared for by the National Trust and form part of a stunning landscape backed by dunes and heath land. The village itself is well serviced by a popular pub and a shop selling essential supplies. Lovers of nature can explore the reserves close by including Hartland Moor and RSPB Stoborough Heath. This area is also steeped in history with the pretty village of Corfe Castle and its ruins being a must see. Should you wish to spend a day in a traditional seaside town, head to Swanage with its Victorian heritage, promenade and steam railway. Bournemouth and Poole are also easily accessible via the Sandbanks ferry.

Accessed via an unmade road, the private driveway leads directly to the main entrance into this detached property. Once inside you are met with a welcoming hallway leading firstly to a kitchen/breakfast room on the right. This well-equipped space has an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, microwave and dishwasher. With a distant sea view on offer across heath land, preparing meals will be a pleasure here. Just next door is an inviting lounge with wood burner, TV/DVD, making it the perfect spot to relax at the end of the day in front of your favourite programmes. A door leads from here to a warm and sunny conservatory with views over the garden. Heading back into the hallway brings you to a useful shower room and utility area, with WC and washing machine. Next is the dining room. Here you can enjoy leisurely meals with the family in comfort, with the doors open to the patio area beyond. A staircase rises from the hallway to the first floor, where you will find a cosy twin room and a generous king-size bedroom at the top of the stairs. This light and bright room is flooded with light thanks to its large picture windows on two sides. To the front of the house there are fabulous far reaching views across the heath land to the sea beyond. An en-suite shower room complete with WC ensures you can begin the day feeling refreshed. Across the landing there are a further two bedrooms, both charming doubles, that share the contemporary bathroom, which has a shower over bath and WC.

Stepping outside you will find a patio area with furniture immediately to the rear of the property, where you can light the charcoal BBQ and cook up a storm. An area of lawn and established flower beds and shrubs lead on from here to a dividing fence. Should you chose to explore the wider garden beyond the fence you will find an expansive space complete with fruit trees and bushes, a large unenclosed pond (care to be taken with children and pets), generous rolling lawns and many lovely spots in which to sit with a good book or picnic. To the front of the property is a further area of lawn and gated off-road parking for four vehicles.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Lovely large property with beautiful views across to Poole, especially at night. Great walks directly from the house although the beach is probably 15/20 minutes. Plenty to see and do around Studland.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
