Just back from a great week at this accommodation. Perfect location for visiting the main areas and beautiful beaches but like other reviews must stress it is at least a couple of miles to any amenities , but very peaceful, it is well equipped and comfortable . The only real disappointment was the ensuite shower which was very very poor.

directions from wareham say go via wool level crossing at the station, much easier to find if you take the left hand turn at the church signposted east stoke. go over the cctv level xing much safer than the old level crossing gates. Network rail have upgraded the crossing to be 100% safe. Heavy holiday traffic going into wool on the friday afternooRead moren of our arrival. about 1700 Hide

We really enjoyed our stay here. I chose a property slightly inland to get better value for money and it didnt disappoint. It was a fantastic base to explore Studland, Swanage, Lulworth and the Tank Museum. Lots of room inside the house and a good, enclosed front garden for the children to play in. We would love to come back!

Mid-terrace barn conversion, light & airy on first floor, a little dark on ground floor. Located on farm (not working) in very quiet rural setting - no shops so need to take essentials. Very comfortable for relaxing/sleeping and with a well-equipped kitchen. However, need to take own condiments/oil if considering serious cooking as, because of CoviRead mored, these not available. External seating allows sun to be caught all day. A pleasant, comfortable and convenient base for exploring the area. Hide

The house is very clean and well looked after, sun trap in the rear of the house and plenty of space to spread out especially if you are a small family. It is generally quiet and quite isolated, you'll need a car to go our for a drink or food. we loved the woodburner which added to the cosiness of the house.

Lovely, well looked after property in an amazing location. A bit tricky to find via satnav but the provided instructions were spot on. The house itself is wonderful; well equipped kitchen, cozy living spaces and comfortable beds. Great location, it was easy to get to all the locations visited and the nearby town was a short drive away to go to the Read moreshops. Fully recommend the property and would happily use it again.

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.
