A cosy beach-view bolthole sitting pretty on Dorset's Studland Bay, just steps from the golden coastline – with breakfast and dinner included

A glorious sliver of golden coastline in Dorset, the Isle of Purbeck peninsula is dotted with caramel beaches, sandy dunes and crumbly cliffs – an unsullied pocket of natural beauty, much of it under UNESCO protection. 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 façade to the flower-filled garden.

On your doorstep is a tangle of walking trails, weaving along the clifftop coastline, across rippling sand dunes and through the rugged heathland of the wildlife-rich reserve. After long, windswept rambles, retreat to your cosy bolthole for a decadent cream tea in the teal-hued Bistro, followed a few laps of the plant-lined indoor pool to make room for dinner.

Elsewhere, you’ll discover a sauna, steam room and hot tub with views across the Downs, as well as two tennis courts, a seasonal outdoor pool and a pitch-and-putt golf course with wonderful views over the Studland Bay beaches and Old Harry Rocks.
