Perfect week of relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Studland & Purbeck has had a place in our hearts for many years. Our daughter recommended this cottage after staying here a couple of years ago and we knew that the location was perfect as there are so many walks to choose from. We were not disappointed! Harmony Cottage is charming and comfortable with a relaxing décor & ambience. We needed relaxation and we certainly found it here. It is our 1st visit and hopefully will not be our last.

Beautiful getaway

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cottage with character, very tastefully decorated. Stunning views from the kitchen. A perfect location for a beach getaway, literally just a stones throw from the house. Great walks from the house. We absolutely loved our stay and will definitely be back. Highly recommended.

Cosy Cottage in centre of beautiful village

  • 5 of 5

A real home from home holiday cottage with a special feel and wonderful views over the countryside from the garden. Loved the Rayburn and the bath! The weather was very kind to us, the wild flowers (especially bluebells) were out in profusion and the birds seranaded us from morning till night. Beautiful village church, well stocked village shop with amazingly friendly staff, beaches, cliff walks, heathland, Shell Bay Seafood Restaurant, pub round the corner with it's own brewery - absolutely no need to go anywhere else! Will definitely be back.

Fantastic cottage, location, views and internally

  • 5 of 5

The cottage has a great location with beaches within walking distance. There is a bus stop right outside which if you don't have a car is ideal. The interior of the cottage is to a very high spec and especially the roll top bath in the upstairs bathroom is a luxury. The views are stunning from the garden. Swanage is just a short 5 minute drive away. I have to say this is the first time we have used a owners direct cottage and my overall view was this this was an excellent find and we shall use this cottage again. The owners we met by chance and were lovely and very friendly. Can't wait to book for next year.

Great location, great views, very nice decor

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for half term week with our two children. The cottage is in a perfect location, a few minutes walk from South Beach and from there you can also walk to Middle beach and Knoll beach. You can also walk to the local pub, the Bankes Arms, which may just have one of the best gardens and best views in the country. We made full use of the large garden with the BBQ and the outhouse. I would definitely recommend this place. I think it would make a great retreat in the colder months for a couple as it has a lovely open fire.
