English Country Cottages

From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


Each of the 7 bedrooms boasts en-suite bathroom facilities, a colour television, radio and telephone, making it ideal for large family groups holidaying together.

In a conservation area just a mile from the cliffs and sea at Dancing Ledge, this attractive and very well-equipped stone house enjoys superb views across the countryside towards Swanage Bay . Set with its own garden on the edge of the small hamlet of Acton, it has been completely refurbished to a high standard throughout, and includes an extension at the rear (part of which is the owners’ accommodation). Each bedroom boasts en-suite bathroom facilities, a colour television, radio and telephone, making it ideal for large family groups holidaying together.
Swanage (2½ miles) has a lovely sandy beach, and offers a wide variety of attractions, including shops, inns and restaurants, a theatre, and facilities for tennis and swimming. There are steam trains to the little town of Corfe Castle, and odd pieces of architecture brought from London, including the Wellington Tower on the beach, which once stood near London Bridge. The unspoilt village of Studland (4 miles) has another excellent beach (NT) and is close to woods and downs. North of the village is Studland Heath National Nature Reserve, home to a variety of wildlife ranging from wildfowl to lizards. A ferry runs from Studland across the bay to Sandbanks, from where the bay stretches on to Bournemouth.
Excellent walking can be found in this area, with the coastal path running nearby along the cliffs, and the hills at Nine Barrow Down within easy reach. Riding stables at Wareham, 8 miles. Golf 4 miles. Poole and Bournemouth, both 20 miles. Shops ½ mile, three inns within a mile.

Entrance into spacious hall with tiled floor. Cloakroom/toilet. Well-equipped kitchen with Aga and electric cooker. Attractive sitting-room with open fire. Flight of stairs from hall to comfortable dining room with rugs on tiled floor. First floor: Three pretty double bedrooms, each with TV, radio, internal phone system and en-suite bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet. Two twin bedrooms, each with TV, radio, internal phone system and en-suite bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet.

    This was booked for a family get-together/reunion with family from Australia. Situated about a mile from the coast which is accessible from the cottage but with a steep descent. The garden was large and enclosed and perfect for children and dog to play. It would have been more useful if there was a BBQ to assist with catering. Beautiful views across to the Isle of Weight. The option of a 'Welcome Pack' might suit some visitors.

    This is an excellent house for a big family group ...lovely location; each bedroom is en suite- a real bonus; the kitchen is extremely well equipped for cooking for large numbers including plenty of fridge/freezer space; the garden is great for outdoor games .... pity no BBQ as it is also easy for all to eat outside. The only down side really is the dining room being down a flight of stairs from the kitchen and a bit dingy but it sat 11 adults and 3 children easily around one big table.

    This place is amazing! We celebrated my mum's birthday here and there was plenty of space for everyone to sleep, eat, and sit around chatting. The nearby walks are beautiful, and there are shops nearby and a convenient bus into swanage
