    “On arrival No hot water or heating all 4 gas bottles empty took all day to sort out, cottage damp and cold, the washing machine had mould in it and tumble dryer full of fluff and grit and sand dresser smelt of petrol parking bad and the patio on 2 people could sit there the 4 gas bottles took up all the room and it was full of rubbish pots.”

    Bathroom tap kept dripping. And to have a For Sale sign outside was really off putting. We paid a lot of money would appreciate some compensation please. Not happy and upset.

The property

Resting just a stone's throw away from the beautiful Middle Beach in Studland in Dorset is Vine Cottage, a thatched, Grade II listed dwelling.

Oozing character and charm, completed with original features throughout, Vine Cottage rests within a prime location near a hub of amenities and breath-taking walking trails, making it a wonderful abode for a self-catered stay, inviting six guests.

Benefit from two off-road parking spaces to the front of the cottage, before heading indoors with your personal belongings in tow.

Start your break in the well-equipped kitchen/diner, where you can rustle up and enjoy delicious meals as a family, along with keeping on top of your washing throughout your stay.

Locate the homely sitting room for a relaxing afternoon with a good book in hand, complete with lovely, beamed ceilings, plenty of seating, and an electric fire, perfect for lighting on cooler evenings.

As sleep calls, select between three well-appointed bedrooms, including a double, a twin, and a ground-floor twin, all serviced by a ground-floor bathroom.

Awaken to explore your surroundings, where you can stock up on the essentials at a nearby convenience store, stroll down to the coastline, enjoy brunch at the Salt Pig Café, or an afternoon of watersports.

Take the steam train from Corfe Castle to Swanage Beach and pier and enjoy a bag of fish and chips, or if you'd prefer an energetic hike, discover the Studland and Godlingston Heath National Nature Reserve.

Travelling inland, plan an afternoon of fun at the Dorset Adventure Park, or discover the magnificent remains of Corfe Castle, before following the River Frome path towards Wareham and its amenities.

Round off your getaway in Poole, brimming with attractions across the quay, including the RNLI Poole Lifeboat Museum, and the stunning Sandbanks Beach, along with plenty of shopping and dining opportunities.

Experience all of this as a family at Vine Cottage.

About the location


Swanage 3.6 miles; Sandbanks 4 miles; Wareham 9.3 miles.

Studland is a little village nestled on a peninsula in the Isle of Purbeck, close to both Swanage and Corfe Castle. The village serves as the start of the 630-mile South West Coast Path, where the chain ferry crosses the mouth of Poole Harbour, and trails all the way to Minehead in Somerset, providing excellent walking and scenic vistas. Studland is famously known for its long, sandy beaches, managed by the National Trust, providing watersport facilities and local riding stables on the beach at certain times of the year. Within the village there are several eateries, including The Bankes Arms or The Pig on the Beach near South Beach, plus there is the National Trust café on Knoll Beach. The Sandbanks chain ferry is the easiest way to access the seaside resorts of Poole and Bournemouth, whilst there are frequent bus services from the village centre and beaches that run to Sandbanks and further on to Bournemouth.
