This property, located on a leafy lane overlooking Studland Heath and under a mile from Sandy Beach, offers an unforgettable stay to guests seeking the perfect mix between countryside and coast.

Set on a leafy lane overlooking Studland and Godlington Heath National Nature Reserve is this gorgeous detached property. Sleeping up to eight guests, it boasts a beautiful sandy beach, a shop and a pub within less than a mile. If you don’t fancy venturing out, you can always fire up the BBQ, relax by the summerhouse or challenge your friends and family to a game of pool.

Inside, the property is spacious and light with neutral tones and wooden features. One stand-out feature is the open-plan kitchen/dining room which has large doors leading onto the terrace outside, amplifying the feeling of space and tranquillity. On chillier evenings, you can snuggle up on the sofa in the sitting room in front of the wood burner, while you choose something to watch on the TV. Upstairs, there are four bedrooms giving guests plenty of space to relax, as well as a large family bathroom. Outside, there is a large gravelled parking area and a small garden at the front of the home; however, the extensive rear garden is a hidden gem. With two large terraces, a BBQ, an outdoor table tennis table, a patio, a summerhouse and large swing chair, you’d be forgiven for not wanting to leave the house.

The property is located within easy reach of Swanage (3 miles), popular year-round for its beach, seafront walks and great choice of places to eat. Head north on the South West Coast Path from the town towards to Studland via Ballard Down, or south along the coast to the wonderful Durlston Country Park. A 2-mile walk from the property will take onto the cliffs where you can look towards Old Harry Rocks and enjoy views over Studland Bay.

Please note there is a refundable £500 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

Everything that you could possibly want for a self catered holiday with children was provided, including books and dvds. The facilities and equipment were of high standard.

Beautiful holiday home - and it really was a home. Clean, comfortable and spacious yet cosy. The location was perfect, close to lovely pubs and restaurants, and ideal for the beaches too. We had such a brilliant week and are desperate to go back as soon as we can!

A wonderfully located property for walks and runs. Very quiet with a beautiful garden to relax in, the front and rear space allowing you to enjoy the sun at any time of day. Fully equipped kitchen, dining room and utility area....we loved it.

Great holiday. House was clean, well equipped and smart. Location was lovely, could walk up on to the heath and down to the beach - only crossing one road!!

Location

Map
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.
