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.

Located on a quiet, unmade country road just 3 miles from Swanage, this property is your ideal retreat from busy life. You’re situated right at the end of the stunning Jurassic coast, which finishes at Old Harry Rocks (1 mile), offering children the chance to go fossil hunting. Take a stroll straight from the house across the heathland to get to the magnificent Agglestone Rock (350 metres) where you can see for miles around you, safe in the knowledge that your weary legs can rest among the property’s bright and airy decor when it’s time to go home.

Step into the porch and into the hall to take off muddy boots and coats after a day of exploration before heading to the lounge with beautiful oak floors. Cosy up in front of the wood burner on the comfy sofas, or take a seat at the bay window with a good book. If TV is more your thing, find your favourite programme and settle down for the evening; if you’re feeling competitive, pop over to the dining room where the large dining table converts into a pool table! Enjoy looking out through French doors to the garden while you eat or play pool, or throw them open during warmer months to let in some fresh air. Step through to the bright contemporary kitchen with breakfast bar and everything you could need to cook up a storm. The oven even has a warming drawer if you fancy showing off your baking skills! There’s no need to worry if you get mucky since the utility room has a sink and drier for you to use. Head up the stairs onto the spacious landing and you’ll find a peaceful bedroom with a single day bed that’s ideal for afternoon naps at the top of the stairs; across the way a double bedroom lends a boutique feel to your stay with pretty decorative touches. A superb king-size room, complete with an en-suite with his and hers sinks and a shower, allows you to holiday in style. Quaint coastal touches furnish the twin bedroom and make it a relaxing place for kids after a long day at the beach. Soak among the bubbles in the main bathroom, or rinse off in the separate shower.

Outside, the large garden is a pleasure to enjoy in the warmer months. Sizzle up a BBQ on the terrace while the kids play table tennis, or bask in the sun on the loungers in front of the summer house on the raised patio. At the front of the property, sit among the shrubs and plants at the table that has a parasol to shade you from the sun.

Please note there is a refundable £150 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

The house was beautifully decorated and furnished whilst feeling felt like a home from home. All appliances were of the best quality and the garden was perfect.

Location

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.

Dorset, a location of enduring popularity is a small rural gem of a county encompassing all of the best parts of rural England: rolling green hills, woodland and hedgerows abundant with flora and fauna running down to the sea yet situated just 3 hours from London and the South East.

The whole coastline from Exmouth to Poole has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Known as the Jurassic Coast, it is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status and offers unspoilt views with dramatic cliff-top walks alongside beautiful, safe, sandy beaches which often welcome your four-legged friends too. From the dramatic natural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland; Dorset has it all.

This South West county is also a treasure trove of secrets waiting to be discovered. Having grown out of the landscape out of the centuries, many of Dorset’s small rural towns expose history at every turn to inform and delight guests, whilst for the more energetic, footpaths and cycle-ways open up to reveal Dorset’s hidden secrets and the coast is always close at hand for those who love the water.

Why not head to Lyme Regis – classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much like most of West Dorset to uncover an old-world ambience and excellent fossil hunting or discover the drama of Lulworth with the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

Dorset’s towns and villages ooze quintessential charm and are graced by fine buildings which have often been immortalised in Thomas Hardy’s books, including Dorchester – his birthplace. Wherever you choose to stay, you are never far from the fascinating Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastal Path.
