Priceless views and happy days.

Walk through acres of glorious gardens to the beach at Studland Bay. Enjoy stunning views. Live in Edwardian grandeur in one of the best locations anywhere in England.

Enjoy three miles of golden, safe, sandy beach and dunes with gently shelving waters.

The bay inspired Enid Blyton. Stay at Studland Bay House and you’ll catch her spirit. It’s a world of endless golden sand. Picnics in the dunes. Shrimp nets and sandy sandwiches. The Sandbanks chain ferry.

At Studland Bay House on Dorset’s Purbeck Coast, all this sits at the foot of your garden. Inside the house, every generation will feel at home. That’s because everyone can eat together. Everyone can enjoy the gardens. Everyone can congregate on the terrace. This place is big enough for everyone to be together. Or to slip apart for a while.

Studland Bay House is a grand, fully restored Edwardian house in an unrivalled position just above Studland Bay in Dorset on the glorious Purbeck coast with Sandbanks and Poole Harbour nearby.

Set in the most exceptional location, overlooking Studland Bay with acres and acres of mature gardens and woodland.  Wander down through the gardens straight on to Studland Bay beach – famous for being one of the best beaches in Europe. A wonderful setting for a really memorable family holiday or special weekend. The perfect spot for a magical wedding or party, with plenty of room for a marquee in the grounds.

Gardens and Grounds

Studland Bay is the very essence of the classic English seaside holiday. The sand and surf. Kayaking and windsurfing. Fossils and rockpools at Lulworth Cove. If the seaside isn’t enough, perhaps Corfe Castle, Swanage Light Railway or Monkey World might swing it.

Outside, seven acres of gorgeous gardens sweep down to the sea with perfect lawns, flowerbeds galore, woodland glades and tree lined avenues to explore.

The setting is nothing short of breathtaking.  With views across the grounds to the sea, walking through the gardens and grounds brings you to the sandy beach at Studland – one of the most natural and unspoilt beaches in Dorset.

And take the ferry across to Sandbanks and enjoy the high life in and around Poole Harbour and Sandbanks.
