Swanage and Studland Cottages

Arguably the jewel in Dorset’s crown, the Isle of Purbeck distils much of the county’s charm with its brooding natural beauty and carefully managed development of modern, family-friendly tourism.A holiday hot spot since Victorian times, Purbeck is not an island but its designation is perfectly apt in that to arrive here across the ferry from Sandbanks to Studland or on the River Frome from Poole to Wareham is to enter a different world. That sense of old world charm can now be further accentuated if you chose to arrive by train – the volunteer-run Swanage Railway reconnected to the mainline last year and runs services to Wareham from stations at Swanage, Harman’s Cross and Corfe Castle.

Swanage is Purbeck’s biggest town and a charming resort that manages to feel both thoroughly modern and thrillingly retro at the same time. To the north of the town, around Ballard Point and the instantly recognisable Old Harry Rocks is the beautiful seaside village of Studland. A favourite retreat of the bohemian Bloomsbury artists in Edwardian times, during World War Two the bay was used by Allied forces rehearsing the Normandy Landings, watched from Fort Henry by King George VI, Winston Churchill and Generals Eisenhower and Montgomery.
