Property code: DC030

Set in the pretty Dorset village of Studland, this spacious and welcoming property makes a fantastic holiday home for a large family or a group seeking a retreat close to both coast and countryside.

Take a seaside trip to inspire with this property in the heart of the Purbeck Hills on the Dorset coast. The house's stylish, spacious rooms, sociable outdoor space, and location in the dramatic coastal area of Studland, provides the perfect getaway for a pair of growing families.

Enter the property to find a beautiful, open-plan kitchen and living area. Designed with style and care, the space is inviting — cosy and airy, it leads straight out to the garden through bi-fold doors. The kitchen is a large, modern sanctuary for the chefs among you, with a super social bar and eating space, and all the modern appliances you could want. Head through into the lounge to relax in front of the TV and the wood burner on colder evenings. The room is tranquil, with chic, natural details. To make families feel even more at home, there's a playroom with sofas and toys and books for story-time. Upstairs are the gorgeous bedrooms, including four doubles, two of which can be turned into a twin for kids, and a bunk bedroom, which the little ones will love. Rustic, seaside details fill the rooms, which are light and airy, ideal for a relaxing night's sleep after days of exploring. Outside the property is a cleverly designed family garden. With an artificial lawn perfect for games, a hammock, eating area, BBQ, and lush planting surrounding you, this property will provide many opportunities to wind down and enjoy the coastal air. You can even access a National Trust footpath straight from the back gate, so you will waste no time setting off on your adventures. You can bring the family dogs too — they'll love the various trails to ramble and paths to explore.

A beautiful house with lots of space ideal for our group of three families. As a dog owner I like to stay somewhere with walks on the doorstep and the location meant I didnt need to use the car at all to get somewhere beautiful. Very happy to stay somewhere stylish and dog friendly. The kids in our party loved it too.
