Cottage in Studland, Nr. Swanage, Dorset, England

Studland is set in a National Nature Reserve, is in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is part of the Purbeck Heritage Coast, and a gateway to the Jurassic Coast World Heritage. Golfers will enjoy the Isle of Purbeck Golf Course 5 minutes drive away which has an 18-hole and 9-hole course, both with stunning views over Poole Harbour.

the best holiday EVER! By Freddy Parker

  • 5 of 5

I love coming to my Granny and Grandads holiday home it is clean and is based in an amazing location. I love going to swanage and i love crabbing at the beach with my brother, sister and dad. I come here around 3 times a year and there are always new things to see and do. The fun is endless. I recommend this place for people who want to get away from busy smelly places and for people who love walks and going to famous castles

Our holiday at Mimosa Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic! We have recently stayed in your cottage and had a wonderful time! It had everything we needed and was so child friendly with the open plan space, we have a 3 year old and a nearly walking 14 month old so lots of space for them! The cottage was beautiful and so were the gardens. We were so sad to leave! 10 out of 10 from us! Thank you!
