This room even has French windows opening onto a fabulous terrace, complete with a table, chairs and sun loungers - here you are able watch the sun set and unwind while overlooking the valley and with a glimpse of the sea too. The comfortable sitting-room has the same far-reaching views with the added bonus of Sky TV and BT Sport. After a long day exploring what Studland has to offer, the four bedrooms upstairs offer the perfect retreat to rest your head. Two looking out across the garden and onto the surrounding countryside, is there anything better than to wake up to a spectacular view?
For a bit of family competition enjoy a friendly game or two of table-tennis in the games-room.
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. For the sporty amongst you, head to the nearby Isle of Purbeck Golf Course, less than two miles away, that has fabulous views.
