2 Penny's Cottages is an attractive semi-detached family house, a real home-from-home, built to match the traditional stone cottages in this historic village, which boasts a dramatic ruined National Trust castle. Immaculately presented throughout, with two double bedrooms and another with the option of three single beds, this accommodation is very flexible for six guests. There is a small enclosed rear garden, ideal for young children, and the village centre is a five minute walk away.
This welcoming and well-equipped cottage is a perfect base for a very happy holiday. Children (and grown ups!) will love the little steam railway that passes through the village – where you will find a good range of interesting independent shops for your holiday treats and some great places to eat.
You can take a ferry from Studland across to Sandbanks and Poole Harbour, which has an exciting range of watersports, and the ancient walled Saxon town of Wareham, are also nearby.
