Formerly a tennis pavilion, this unusual cottage stands on the edge of Studland village. Its verandah, with seating area, enjoys superb views over Studland Beach, while just 180 metres away is South Beach, a sandy and secluded area popular with local people. There is a large enclosed garden and parking for one car with extra free parking across the road.

Here are some other cottages in the same region that you might also be interested in 1 Heathland Cottages and Beech Cottage.

Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire

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 Keep of Corfe Castle, Dorset. The Keep was built in the early years of Henry I's reign, perhaps as early as 1105, but other parts of the castle date from before this time. © David Levenson

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.

    Snug, warm, cosy cottage

    Perfect location within a 45 minute drive from home. Perfect for walks and the family dog. Only slight negative is non privacy of the garden as only a wire fence between the cottage garden and a busy pub garden. Property was snug, warm and cosy. Already rebooked for a week next March.

    Easy access to beach

    Feeling at home in a fabulous location made our stay enjoyable. NT cottages are so comfortable and easy to spend time in. The dog loves Seaview and the easy access to the beach.

    Very comfortable cottage

    Seaview cottage was very comfortable. The Banks Arm is dead opposite and a national trust park next to the pub. I would imagine in the summer it is very busy. There is the Pig restaurant five minutes walk from the cottage and the food is fantastic would highly recommend but not the cheapest restaurant in the area .

    Made enjoyable....

    We stayed at Seaview when our children were small and I can't stress how lovely it was to stay there again but this time with our grandchildren and our grown-up children. I particularly like the innocence of NT holidays - beach, walking, playing etc. The NT has improved dramatically their facilities for children - inspiration stations, tracker packs, quizzes, trails etc which has made their experience and that of their parents/grandparents an absolute delight. Staff at Studland Bay/Brownsea Island (totally loved the squirrel house and doorway in the tree - spent an hour opening and closing door whilst repositioning incumbent squirrel) were particularly good (as is our local NT property Anglesey Abbey). Blown away by the fifty things to do before 11 1/2 or whatever age. Instigated passport stamping for our young tribe which echoes the passport stamping of their parents. I feel we have really reinforced a family tradition!!! Thank you.
