Property Description

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. Modern, 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. Steepish stairs to second floor: Two twin bedrooms, each with sloping ceiling, lovely views, TV, radio, internal phone system, en-suite bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet.

  1. With every bedroom having its own bathroom and TV, it ensured all members of our party had their ’own space’ if required. This was so important for a large family holidaying together. June 2012.
  2. This is a great house for a group holiday. The lounge and dining room catered so well for a large group - and a beer fridge in the dining room! I have never seen such a well equipped kitchen in a rented property, we cooked ourselves a brilliant meal.
