Loved the fact that they supplied a wheelchair that could be used on the sand. The usual beach cafes, toilets (clean) and long walks along the unspoilt beach. A nice place, slightly off the beaten track so not as populated as Poole orBournemouth

Arrived at Knoll Beach on a lovely Spring-like day in February. What a beautiful place. The beach was fairly busy on account of being half term, but we found at spare table outside the National Trust cafe and enjoyed a cream tea while looking out to sea and Old Harry's Rocks in the distance. A very special place.

I love Studland. So natural and untouched. You get a lovely day in winter and people flock there. The car ferry run regularly from Poole and Studland is just there. I have walked many times around the head land to the lovely cafe which caters for all ages. The toilet block is well kept and useful. I have walked back... More

This area is National Trust which has saved it from over development . The beach is long and can become fairly busy in high season but most people seem to stay within the vicinity of the cafe so a space can usually be found.Out of school holidays it is a haven either to be on the beach with clean seas...
