About Seaview

With views over Studland Bay, this former tennis pavilion makes a quirky holiday escape.

Seaview is a former tennis pavilion turned quirky holiday cottage with stacks of charm. From its veranda you’ll have front row seats of Studland Bay. Open the double French doors to a bright and airy space where cream wood-panelled walls run throughout the cottage. 

Studland Beach is just a 10 minute walk, where you’ll find a vast stretch of sand, an abundance of waters sports and views of Old Harry Rocks. For a more secluded beach without the crowds, South Beach is just 180 metres from the cottage.

For walks along the Jurassic Coast, loop on to the South West Coast Path from Studland Bay and head down to Swanage. Or for the ruins of Corfe Castle, drive just 10 minutes inland.

There is a badger set at the bottom of the garden at Seaview. We are unable to fence it off or fill the holes in, some of the holes are quite large so both children and adults need to be aware.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
