Why We Love This Hotel
- Knoll House is five minutes' walk from the National Trust's Studland Bay, which has a 4-mile-long beach with views of Old Harry Rocks and crystal-clear waters for bathing and watersports. The Daily Telegraph calls the location "sensational".
- The hotel was a regular retreat of author Enid Blyton. Local landmarks including Studland, Brownsea Island, and Corfe Castle inspired settings in her Noddy and Famous Five stories.
- Swanage, which has a pier and a steam railway, is around 15 minutes' drive from the hotel, while Fort Henry, where Winston Churchill, President Eisenhower, and King George VI once watched troops rehearsing for D-Day, is a 15-minute walk from the hotel.
- You can drive 35 minutes to see Durdle Door, or walk 45 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 an indoor swimming pool. The hotel is family friendly, with other facilities including a play room, a games room, and a cinema room. Children stay for free but are charged for meals as taken.
- 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.
