Just had a week at this lovely house with 3 generations and an elderly dog. plenty of space for everyone and very well equipped especially the kitchen. there was even dog bed and bowls. Lovely welcome basket. we used the pool table and outside balcony , with stunning view, a lot.Beds were really comfortable and rooms had lots of storage space. greaRead moret location for walking to beach, pub, shop. bus stop just outside the house. the main road runs past the house but wasn't too busy or noisy for us. The stairs down to the basement were too steep for our elderly dog so we kept her upstairs but there is also access from the garden if needed. we would definitely love to come back. thank you Hide

Our third Summer stay at this lovely property. It is ideal for a multi generational family, plenty of space and lots of facilities, including games room with pool table. We particularly like the fact that everyone has their own bathroom, which seems difficult to find when looking for a holiday let for 6 adults and 2 children. The location of HomelRead moreands couldnt be better. Walking distance to the beach and local shop, which seems to sell anything you may need! The Purbeck breezer bus stops are nearby which can take you either into Swanage or Bournemouth. So much to do and see in the area and Homelands is the perfect base. Hide

We had a lovely family holiday based at Homelands. The views are spectacular and we like how dog friendly it is ( Teddy our cavapoo enjoyed himself enormously ) The large TV room , modern walk in showers and Edwardian features are all great., and added to our enjoyment. This is probably our 10th stay in Studland, and we very much hope to be back.

The lock on the front door broke, the pool table was warped (and we specifically booked a cottage with a games room), no wok, potato peeler awful. The front of the property wasnt appealing but the inside was well decorated and good size rooms.
