A cosy beach bolthole sitting pretty on Dorset's Studland Bay, just steps from the coastline and a nature reserve – includes breakfast, dinner credit and an optional suite
- A glorious sliver of golden coastline in Dorset, the Isle of Purbeck peninsula is dotted with caramel beaches, sandy dunes and crumbly cliffs. A stone’s throw from Studland Bay – a soft golden arc edged by a rugged nature reserve – you’ll discover Knoll House, a blue-shuttered gem with trailing plants tumbling down its white facade.
- With idyllic views stretching across the bay, The Restaurant serves up traditional British-French plates, rustled up using the freshest of ingredients and served in an elegant but laid-back setting. For a more casual vibe, make a beeline for The Bistro (chargeable), where you can feast on sharing platters, fresh seafood and classic dishes.
- Surrounded by overflowing hanging baskets, swimmers can take a dip beneath the soaring wooden ceiling in the indoor plunge pool, or swim al fresco in the seasonal outdoor pool (heated until the end of September). The wellness area also includes a sauna and steam room.

Travelling with kids?
If you're travelling with little ones, there's the chance to book a Two Bedroom suite, which sleeps up to four people – perfect for smaller families. A kids' menu, as well as the option to pick smaller plates from the main menu, takes the hassle out of meal times, while a babysitting and baby listening service is available for those parents who want to linger over drinks, without keeping their children up late. Elsewhere, there's a games room with table tennis, a pool table and table football, as well as some vintage arcade games, plus an outdoor adventure playground, a large-scale garden chess set and seasonal paddling pool.
Please note that the babysitting service is chargeable, while the baby listening service must be pre-booked 48 hours prior to needing the service. Please also note that children's food is charged as taken.
