The Isle of Purbeck is a stunning Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty between Poole and Swanage boasting one of the most spectacular coastlines in Dorset. Sunnyholme, an extremely spacious detached 1930s house in the middle of the village, is the perfect base for families to relax and enjoy this area – Studland's family-friendly sandy beach is just a half-mile walk away. This sun-filled house has a large enclosed garden and the kitchen/dining-room has French windows opening onto a fabulous terrace, complete with a table, chairs and sun loungers, overlooking the valley and with a glimpse of the sea. The sitting-room has the same wonderful view. For a bit of family competition enjoy a game or two of table-tennis in the games-room. The four bedrooms are upstairs, two look out across the garden and surrounding countryside.
Sunnyholme is perfectly positioned to explore this exceptional area of Dorset where miles of unspoilt golden sands are cared for by the National Trust, ensuring that walkers, birdwatchers and sunbathers alike can enjoy the clear sands, blue seas, wildlife and coastal walks to the full.
