  • “Despite the weather being a little extreme, the comfort of the lodge made the stay enjoyable.”

    The area is great for walking, swimming and fishing. Janet was an excellent 'meeter and greeter' and the electronic security gate made us feel very secure in an isolated position. We did not have young children, but the facilities were perfect for small children to play out.

The property

Tucked away in a delightful private setting within the owner's generous, 20-acre gardens and grounds rests this fabulous single-storey dwelling, Hill View, Lilac Lodge.

Centrally positioned within easy reach of both the coast and country of Dorset, Hill View, Lilac Lodge offers a handy base for a small family looking to explore while offering the tranquillity of the rural location and open views.

Upon arrival, step through the well-maintained enclosed garden that envelops this lovely dwelling and climb the handful of stairs entering into the contemporary open-plan living space, beautifully-appointed with an elegant and neutral décor, flooded with natural light.

Kick off your shoes and take a perch at the breakfast bar as the designated chef prepares a hearty meal in the amply-equipped kitchen and gather your loved ones around the eye-catching marble dining table to indulge in your culinary delights.

Settle down for the evening on the sofa to enjoy a movie marathon or step out onto the veranda, offering a lovely spot to soak in the evening sun with a refreshing glass of wine.

When sleep calls, tuck the little ones up in the snug twin room before retiring to the master bedroom, fit with a sumptuous king-size and an en-suite, where you can relax in the tub before snuggling up under the covers.

In the morning, kickstart your day with an invigorating rinse in the contemporary family shower room before heading out to explore your surroundings.

The grounds are home to a carp lake and a private wooded area, which can be explored on request and where you may see some deer and other native wildlife.

Take a break from doing the cooking and treat your loved ones to a delicious meal with a stroll into the heart of Wareham, boasting quaint tea rooms and traditional country pubs.

After satisfying your appetite, hire a boat and soak in the scenery aboard the River Frome, or if you'd prefer to stay on land, discover the wealth of fascinating local history on display at Wareham Town Museum.

There's a host of scenic trails worth discovering from your doorstep, with the nearby Wareham Forest Way, passing through the scenic woodland of Wareham Forest and its abundance of wildlife toward the quaint village of Sturminster Marshall, as well as The Purbeck Way, a spectacular trail within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to Corfe Castle.

Within easy reach are the tranquil waters of Lulworth Cove, tucked away on the dramatic Jurassic Coast, where the rounded bay formed by sea erosion provides a secluded spot to unwind and bask in the sun and sand; avid outdoor adventurers can tackle the steep climb to Durdle Door for spectacular panoramic views across the coastline.

Make unforgettable memories with a stay at Hill View, Lilac Lodge.

About the location


Corfe Castle 5 miles; Poole 9 miles; Swanage 11 miles;

Wareham, affectionately known as the ‘Gateway to the Purbecks’ is an ancient Dorset waterside market town. Situated between the River Frome and quaintly named River Piddle, its charming riverside location makes the town a popular holiday destination. Dating back to Saxon times, the town was once surrounded by walls, and became an important port with boats bringing supplies up the River Frome from nearby Poole harbour. Today, the river provides a great playground, you can hire a boat from the attractive quayside and chug your way down the stream, take one of the regular organised boat trips, browse the colourful Saturday market or simply just enjoy an ice cream or a drink relaxing on the Quayside. Whilst seasonally there are also numerous popular events taking place beside the river. A short drive takes you to the Arne peninsula jutting out into Poole Harbour, a designated RSPB reserve, where you can stroll down to the water’s edge, taking in glimpses of the impressive bird population and often viewing some of the resident deer. The friendly seaside resort of Swanage is also easily accessible, where you can experience a traditional family-friendly day out on the beach, or take the coastal path and stop off for refreshment at Durlston Country Park. A real treat is to drive to nearby Corfe Castle and take the vintage steam railway to Swanage. Wareham offers visitors a super Dorset holiday destination at anytime of the year.
