  • A delightful rural hideaway in an RSPB Nature Reserve a fantastic base for walkers and nature lovers
  • Easy access to the Jurassic Coast and South West Coast Path
  • Close to Wareham, Studland and Swanage, ideal for visiting Corfe Castle
Property code: DC188

Situated on the edge of a popular nature reserve, this spacious property is full of character and makes a lovely holiday home for a family or group keen to explore the countryside near Poole Harbour.

You and your family or friends can escape modern stresses in this magnificent country house, set within strides of the sublime RSPB Arne Nature Reserve. With ancient oak woodlands, heaths, reed beds and reptile habitats, it’s a paradise for wildlife lovers, photographers and artists. The tranquil oasis of Hartland Moor, Stoborough Heath’s woods and wetlands and the ancient market town of Wareham are all within 4 miles. Corfe Castle (5.5 miles) is iconic, quaint and picture-perfect, with breathtaking views across Purbeck from the ruins.

Inside this former pottery studio, you’ll find a spacious and vibrant interior exuding charm, character and style. In the grand, galleried lounge, unwind on luxuriant sofas around a glowing wood burner; reminisce with wine on wild Dorset days, and plan tomorrow’s adventures. The second lounge is a perfect space for more intimate moments. Fashion feasts of fine local fare in the ceramic-floored kitchen/diner with its glorious storage dresser, and spill out onto the patio for al fresco festivities. Seek sanctuary in the three bathrooms, two of them on the ground floor. Five fabulous bedrooms will soon be calling; a spacious ground-floor bunk room with steps up to the gallery, and a twin; upstairs, there are two triple bedrooms with single beds, and a double. Outside, relax on the fenced (but not child-proof) lawns and spot deer that sometimes come to visit.

Catch a ferry from Studland to Poole (both 14 miles) or beautiful Brownsea Island, or explore Durlston Country Park and exquisite Lulworth Cove (both 12 miles). Find sumptuous white sands at Studland’s Shell Bay (14 miles), silver chalk-cliffed splendour at Swanage (12 miles) and glorious golden beaches at Sandbanks (17.5 miles), with its superb pubs and restaurants. Ride the Jurassic Coast on the Sea Train Adventure from Poole. Dazzling memories await.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

A really lovely house in a beautiful location. It suited 8 of us very nicely and we had a wonderful week The house is quite quirky and interesting but could do with some tlc.

We absolutely loved it, amazing location and the house was really comfortable and spacious. Looking at previous reviews, there were a few marks on the carpet but it was very clean and with children and dog it was a relief and more homely! Brilliant place! Well be back.

Cottage is in a lovely location however is let down by the damp walls and flaking paintwork. Due to covid the place has been empty for about 3 months. It would of been an ideal time to give the place a refresh to prevent feedback like this.

Do you want monsoon showers, granite worktops & barista coffee machines in your holiday home? If so, keep looking. However, if you want a huge, spacious house with a large garden, perfect for hide-and-seek, The Studio is ideal.

A fantastic spacious house with some lovely personal touches and memorabilia where you will be surrounded by wonderful trees and heathland home to a variety of interesting birds. Bring good binoculars.

The Stable is a wonderful property in a stunning location. There is so much space and light in the house it was a real pleasure to spend my special birthday week there with my family and friends joining in on different days. Although some aspects of the house do need updating, for a holiday in a beautiful and peaceful location it was perfect.

We enjoyed our stay in Arne. The Studio is in a great location with lovely walks straight from the house. However we feel a few improvements to furniture, showers etc are needed.
