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

Escape the hustle and bustle of modern life and embrace a slower pace amongst the golden sandy beaches and cobbled streets of Studland. Surrounded by windswept dunes and heathland, it is a paradise for keen walkers and beach dwellers alike, making this a very special destination for any big family holiday. Tucked on the outskirts of the village against a backdrop of sweeping countryside, this spacious property sleeps eight guests across four bedrooms, providing the ideal base for exploring the Purbeck Heritage Coast.

Stylish, elegant and packed with homely details, this charming accommodation is perfectly suited for socialising. Catch a glimpse of the sea as you potter in the kitchen, rustling up hearty meals for the family to enjoy in the adjacent dining room, throwing open the doors for an al fresco vibe. A rustic wood burner creates a warm glow in the comfortable lounge, providing an irresistible spot for relaxing in front of the TV, or gathering for family board games. Admire the garden views from the sunny conservatory as you sip your favourite brew, helping yourself to a delicious slab of homemade cake. Sea views and crisp linen feature in every bedroom, and the bathrooms offer a soothing interlude for weary guests after a busy day. The main attraction of this beautiful holiday home is the fantastic garden that stretches beyond the dividing fence to a lawn area dotted with fruit trees and a large, open pond. Light the BBQ and settle down on the patio for some top-notch al fresco dining, watching the children stretch their legs on the grass. There’s ample off-road parking for four cars, and the nearest pub is within a 1-mile stroll.

Adrenaline seekers are well catered for too, with organised activities such as snorkelling, paddleboarding, kayaking and sailing available at specific beaches.

Our second time taking this particular house - we took a week last year (2021)lovely house, with all, if not more facilities than were required. However, the fabulous weather meant we under-used the house as we were on the beach or outside generally for most of the day from breakfast until after 8 pm. Our teenage grandchildren probably enjoyed a grRead moreeat garden more than us older people - oh, and the dog loved it, especially when visited by deer in the evening. Hide

Greystones is a remarkable cottage with the most amazing views accross the heathland to Studland and Poole Harbour. It's an extremely well equipped cottage with plenty of space for 8 people and it's very well suited to our extended family stays. We have loved the cottage and its position so much that we have booked it for the last 3yrs.

Greystones is a lovely 4 bed property in a great location overlooking Studland. It is a short dive or walk to a lovely sandy beach which is ideal for families. There are two other beaches a short drive away. The town of Swanage is a 10 min drive and offers a good range of places to eat or shop.

A wonderful property - well maintained and well-equipped. Comfortable and with all the mod-cons one could want. A brisk walk to the shop every morning with the dog became a routine that I looked forward to. Just a ten-minute walk to the beach across the lovely countryside, and moments away from great dog-walks with a distinct lack of people and roaRead moreds. Great to see herds of Sika deer and the dog retired exhausted every night. All we'd like next time is some balmy evenings on the patio. Hide
