No two days are the same across these three beautiful counties; from Wiltshire's dreamy downland and the stone circles of Avebury and Stonehenge, Dorset's coastal beauty and bucolic charms, and the wilds of Exmoor and Quantocks in Somerset. Their wide open spaces and historical sites draws people back again and again.

Isle of Purbeck

The Isle of Purbeck is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to the west of Bournemouth. It is characterised by stone villages, heath and farmland, criss-crossed with minor roads and tracks and dominated by the impressive and dramatic ruins of Corfe Castle. One of our cottages stands below the huge ramparts of the castle, whilst others are on the edge of miles of heathland or close to the Arne Bird Sanctuary. Studland Beach, near Swanage, is a three mile stretch of glorious sandy beach, part of which is designated as a naturist area and behind which is a National Nature Reserve. One of our holiday homes has views across Studland Bay whilst the other two are outside the village with views to Swanage Bay.

National Trust places nearby include Corfe Castle, Brownsea Island, Clouds Hill, Studland Beach. Beaches are at Studland and Swanage. and other attractions in the area include the South West Coast Path, Swanage steam railway, Corfe Castle Model Village and Gardens and The Ginger Pop Shop, Blue Pool and Poole Harbour. There are lots of activities to enjoy including walking, birdwatching, fishing, watersports, horse riding and golf.

    Wonderful location

    Greenlands is in a wonderful location. It has views out of every window to heathland on one side and Poole harbour on the other. It is surrounded by fields and is on its own. It's a mile from Knowle Beach which has an excellent car park and NT cafe. The beach is the perfect (sandy) place for children (and adults) to have a seaside experience. The house is comfortable and in addition to the usual accommodation has a utility room, a conservatory, a downstairs toilet, a spacious kitchen and big hallways. Outside Sika deer and rabbits abound, as do a wonderful array of birdlife. There are walks from the house, and also a cycle track running close by (of about 6 miles). There is a good local shop in Studland (about a mile away). Highly recommended.

    Beautifully appointed

    First experience of your cottages and won't be the last - it suited everyone from a 21 year old to a 90 year old, the property was beautifully appointed and clean as a whistle and the one little heating problem we had was dealt with quickly, efficiently and politely.
