Studland Bay House is in a stunning location overlooking Studland Bay, with extensive grounds, including the cricket pitch, 9 mainly enormous double bedrooms and excellent facilities (although it may get a bit cold in winter - we had to light a roaring fire even at the end of May for two evenings!).
We stayed here in May 2013 with a mass of friends and family for the week prior to our wedding and Mike and his team hosted our wedding reception with us.
Nothing was too much trouble for Mike, Lynn and the team. Our guests could not believe the venue, the quality of food provided was excellent (and the quantity was copious, too).
I know that it didn't come cheap but our week was more than perfect and I cannot recommend Studland Bay House highly enough. We are already trying to plan how we could possibly afford to come back with friends and family for a slghtly more relaxing week (maybe an anniversary?). more
