This lakeside home gives guests direct access to the waterfront and private jetty from which to soak it all up. Set on a picturesque holiday park in West Dorset, it's not every day you get to wake up to views like this. Although the private garden and terrace offer viewing that puts you closer to nature, the cosy open lounge setting is just as tempting – and the wood burner fireplace is a particularly sweet feature during winter's evenings here. You'll also have access to the on-site gym, swimming pool and spa. Meanwhile, water sports on the lake will be available during peak season. With tennis courts, bike rental services and forest playgrounds, too, there's something for everyone here.

  • No time for average – We reject thousands of homes worldwide, so you don't have to.
  • Hosts we know – With track records of high-quality hosting.
  • Rated ‘Excellent’ on Trustpilot – Exceptional service before, during and after your stay.
