  • "Fantastic venue, the property was just what needed, size, location as we were coming from different locations, families wanted to be together but also part of the larger family group."

    The Kitchen is really the hub of the house which suited us so well. All bedrooms and linen were clean and had everything you need. We would have liked to have had more control over the heating as at times it got cold has the heating was off from early afternoon through to early evening, we had two elderly with us, so they felt the cold more. We did contact the Housekeeper on the Saturday and she immediately turned up the heating for us from her App, it would just be nice to have more control yourself as the house was then again very hot overnight, its seems the timing needs a little adjustment. For one of the bedrooms upstairs you need to walk through another to get to the bathroom or to go downstairs, this could be an issue for friends staying. It wasn't particularly for us but we felt it should be mentioned in the property details. Otherwise a perfect long weekend for our family stay, thank you

  • "The property was ideal for a family get together over a long weekend and everyone enjoyed themselves very much."

    However the property did have some shortcomings, it had obviously been well used and as such was in need of some refurbishment. For example some of the beds were uncomfortable and in need of repair, there was obvious signs of damp and not suitable for asthmatics.

  • "We were a party of 11 women, all family members, ages ranging from 20 to 75."

    We had a lovely stay however, there was only enough garden/outdoor seating for 8 of us at a push. Hence the younger family members had to sit on the grass. Could have done with more garden chairs that could have been more comfortable. Cleanliness was good apart from the many cobwebs & dust. But apart from those minor details we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay & would definitely consider booking again. The house is in a beautiful location & we all agreed it we would like to return.

  • "The Studio was an amazing place to stay Very well equipped and very comfortable beds and lounges We are a very mixed bag of folks from age 6 being the youngest to age 76 ,all catered for with games for wet or cold days We were lucky had good weather so the outside excellent ,completely enclosed for little ones and dog and outdoor games Very close to natural playground for all ages ,walks and to other Dorset attractions ."

    My only thing I would suggest maybe some hooks for outdoor clothes in the hall just inside the conservatory,for wet days Woodburner very wellcome on chilly evenings,as April still cool later in day.I’m sure we’ll go again ,maybe next year

The property

Stoborough 3.7 miles.

Settled on the outskirts of Arne near Stoborough in Dorset, is this superb, five-bedroom detached house, The Studio-Arne.

Perched on the outskirts of Wareham Forest next to the RSPB Nature Reserve, and with easy access to the Jurassic Coast and scenic South West Coast Path, The Studio-Arne is the perfect dwelling for a large family and their two canine companions to explore the beautiful Dorset coast.

Park up on the sweeping private driveway, where you will be greeted by a neat front garden and your new idyllic holiday home.

Make your way into the porch area where you can discard any coats and shoes after your journey, as well as wet gear and beach gear after a day of adventures.

Be welcomed into the spacious kitchen/diner, where you can look forward to whipping up mouth-watering culinary delights for your guests with the help of the rangemaster cooker with gas hob, fridge/freezer and microwave, along with a handy dishwasher ensuring a fuss-free clean up.

Gather around the dining table to tuck-in to a delicious meal, or if the weather is nice, why not make dinner an alfresco affair out on the private patio where you can fire up the barbecue and savour the last of the day’s sunshine.

As the evening cools, take your pick of rooms to relax in, with the formal lounge offering large sofas to curl up in as you bask in the glow of the woodburning stove or the snug, where you can select the evenings entertainment courtesy of the TV as you kick-back and relax on the corner sofa.

Completing the ground-floor are two well-presented bedrooms, a twin and a bunk room, each served by a bathroom where you can enjoy an indulgent soak or refreshing rinse.

Climb the stairs to the first floor with mezzanine balcony, and find three more bedrooms, a super-king-size with zip/link, a family room and a triple room, offering flexible sleeping arrangements for all parties.

Get to know your local surroundings, with the RSPB Nature Reserve just a short walk away from your holiday, offering a haven to birdwatchers and wildlife lovers, as well as an on-site café and shop where you can grab a tasty bite to eat afterwards.

The charming village of Stoborough is nearby, where you will find the welcoming Kings Arms pub offering traditional pub lunches in a beautiful, thatched cottage setting.

For a fun-filled family day out, head to the Dorset Adventure Park where you can enjoy the delights of water inflatables in 18-acres of woodland with exceptional views of the Purbeck countryside.

Just a little further is Wareham with the River Stour, here you can test your putting skills at the excellent golf club, try your hand at clay pigeon shooting or enjoy the thrills of open water swimming.

Be sure to visit the picturesque coastal town of Poole, where you brush up on your local history at the Poole Museum, wander the harbour or choose from a fantastic selection of eateries.

For a memorable day at the beach, head to nearby Sandbanks, where you can paddle the clear waters, build sandcastles with the little ones or bathe with your favourite book.

Take advantage of your setting within the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with Bournemouth nearby, well-known for its bustling pier and glorious beaches, along with Weymouth, both of which can be accessed via beautiful walks along the English Heritage Jurassic Coast and South West Coastal Path.
