Charming cottage in beautiful Studland

  • 5 out of 5
Dealing with Angela was an easy and pleasing experience, even from afar. The cottage was exactly what we expected, charming and full of character.
Coming from Mexico we needed somewhere cosy and Vine Cottage fits the bill.
Our bed was comfortable with nice quality bedding and pillows.
We found the electric fire in the living room to be a nice focal point of warmth after a couple of bracing walks.
As other reviewers have stated, there are great walks from the cottage, down to the beach, or around the coastal path to Old Harry Rocks and on to Swanage.
Studland Stores was a real revelation - very friendly and very well stocked. These types of local businesses need the support of all visitors in my opinion.
This was our first visit to Dorset, but definitely not our last. Thanks to Angela for making Vine Cottage available.

What a fabulous cottage in an ideal area!

  • 5 out of 5
We are five friends from Kent who wanted a weekend away somewhere where we could enjoy the fresh sea air by day & cosy up to chat by night. Vine Cottage was absolutely perfect! After arriving in Studland to cold damp weather, it was lovely to snuggle up in the cottage with a hot drink & a slice of Dorset apple cake, which had been kindly left for us by Angela. Next morning the weather was perfect &, after a hearty breakfast, we went exploring & walked the coastal path to Swanage. Fish & chips for lunch & a saunter around the shops & then back to Studland on the open topped bus. Being situated within Studland, we had easy access to the beach, local pub, shop & were on the bus route for Swanage to Bournemouth, so we didn't have to use the car once we were there. We had a fabulous weekend & one we will never forget. Thank you!!

A wonderful stay!

  • 5 out of 5
My family and I had a wonderful stay in this beautiful cottage. A well equipped, clean kitchen with the added bonus of a cake and bubbly on our arrival. The area of Studland is stunning with many walks for all abilities, the local pub is within a 5 minute walk which sells good hearty food.

The owner Angela was available at all times and provided good literature about the property and surrounding area and a torch for the evening was good advice.

I would definitely recommend the property and we look forward to going again, thank you Angela.

Our summer favourite

  • 5 out of 5
We have been drawn back to stay in this delightful cottage every year for a number of years now. It is ideally located away from the “main” road in the village of Studland and perfect for a quiet holiday retreat. The cottage is as charming as the picture suggests, obviously well cared for by the owner and provided with all the amenities one needs.

The whole area is outstandingly beautiful and the miles of sandy beach, heath, and woodland provide many opportunities for walks. The cottage is just a few minutes walk from the long sandy beach of Studland Bay and evening walks along the beach when all the crowds have gone have become a special favourite of ours. The local shop, pub and Manor House hotel tea rooms are also just a few minutes walk away.

A lovely cottage

  • 5 out of 5
Our stay at the cottage was magical - not only did the weather cooperate (such a rarity on the English coast), but the accommodation was exactly what we were hoping for.

Right when you walk in, you get the feeling of 'charming' and 'cozy', something out of a Jane Austen or a Merchant Ivory book/film. Fresh flowers had been put on the table and when you looked up, the sloped beamed ceilings made it feel so snug.

There was ample room, for although it's a cottage, all the rooms are spacious and wonderfully appointed (I'd like to say here as an aside that coming from the US to the UK, we really appreciated the hairdryer!).

The kitchen had everything we needed for home-cooked meals when we wanted to stay in (although with a pub right around the corner, it was tempting to go out!). The corner shop supplied us with fresh pastries and newspapers in the morning. It was wonderful having a beach close by, and being able to walk everywhere.
