Studland Village – Dorset – England
Not so far away from Corfe Village, this is another tiny village in the coastal Dorset. I have been here so many times but I made an effort to take some pictures just for you. 🙂
This village is quite quaint. Filled with cottages built on Purbeck limestone, a few with thatched roof. There is one pub, a village shop and a church. It is a 5 minutes away from a thin long beach, that when the tide is out you can walk to Old Harry. One of England’s famous natural sites, it marks the most easterly point of the Jurassic Coast, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Ah that reminds me that I need to talk about the Jurassic Coast. That is fascinating. Anyway here are some pictures of the village to feast your eyes on.
The village pub and inn. There is a National trust cottage in front of this pub that is available for people to rent.
You can buy Purbeck Ice cream in this shop. Which is a locally produced ice cream.
The beach 5 minutes walk from the pub.
On the beach there is a small food and drink hut you can get patties, homemade cake and tea and coffee from, called Joe’s Cafe. Joe also have a bucket full of beach toys children can borrow.
I don’t think there is any bus that goes to the place, I would recommend hiring a car if you want to go and stay. Taxis are hard to come by. The bus in these villages is a few far in between.:) There is a running joke that you can get the bus every Wednesday at 7am, only.
Is there such place near you? Have you been?
