Why We Love This Hotel
- This seaside retreat has an "old-fashioned boarding house charm" (The Daily Telegraph) and a variety of leisure facilities

- Enid Blyton, Winston Churchill, Vivien Leigh, and Roald Dahl all stayed at the hotel
Knoll House has a "sensational" (The Daily Telegraph) setting on the Isle of Purbeck in Dorset. It is five minutes' walk from the National Trust's Studland Bay, which has a 4-mile-long beach with views of Old Harry Rocks. This protected stretch of coastline features rugged heathland, nature reserves, and crystal-clear waters for bathing and watersports.
The hotel was a regular retreat of children's author Enid Blyton. It is said she used Studland when envisaging Toytown for her Noddy books, and that Brownsea Island and Corfe Castle provided inspiration for her Famous Five series. The castle, which has over 1000 years of history to delve into, is less than 15 minutes' drive away, as is Swanage, which has a pier and a steam railway.
Fort Henry, a Grade II-listed bunker where Winston Churchill, President Eisenhower, and King George VI once watched troops rehearsing for D-Day, is a 15-minute walk from the hotel. Keep an eye out for the pillboxes and Dragon's Teeth anti-tank obstacles dotted about the area.
Another nearby attraction is Agglestone Rock — a 400-tonne sandstone block also known as the Devil's Anvil — which is a 5-minute drive or a 25-minute walk away. You can drive 35 minutes to see Durdle Door, or walk 35 minutes along the South West Coast Path towards Shell Bay, where a ferry runs across to Sandbanks peninsula every 20 minutes.
Leisure facilities at the hotel include a 9-hole pitch-and-putt course, tennis courts, and indoor and outdoor swimming pools (the outdoor pool is open from April to September). Dogs can stay in some rooms (£15 per dog, per night; bedding is not provided), but they are not allowed in dining and leisure areas. Wi-Fi is free.
