This cottage is in a fantastic location. Its in easy reach of some lovely beaches and walks. The bar at the end of the road does lovely pizzas. The shop at the cross roads sells everything. The beach cafes are very convenient and the cakes at Manor Farm Cafe are delicious!

Heathland Cottage is a beautiful, spacious house, perfectly located in Studland. A short walk to the village store and Old Harrys Bar, and walkable to The Bankes Arms and local beaches, I cant wait to return.

Recommend this cottage wholeheartedly. Very well located to access all the wonders of Studland, and also further afield on the Breezer bus which stops right outside. Comfortable beds, powerful shower, great kitchen facilities. Thank you!

Wow factor when entering but let down by silly things. Three light bulbs not working, security light not working, dirty tea-towels, grubby and very uncomfortable sofa and very hard mattress in master bedroom. Garage entered and left open whilst we were out and key-safe had been tampered with whilst we were out. Fortunately we kept key with us at alRead morel times. Would have given much higher rating otherwise. Location is very good and ideal as a base for lots of attractions. Hide
