Carousel image - Sandyholme

A peaceful and beautiful place to stay in the delightful village of Studland in the Isle of Purbeck, Dorset.

Sandyholme is set in lovely grounds with nearby sandy beaches, cliff top walks along the Jurassic Coast and much more. It is an ideal base for church groups, youth groups, activity groups, charities, families and other groups looking for accommodation in a home from home environment.

With up to 32 beds, four kitchens, five bath/shower rooms, a large lounge, dining room, conservatory and several other lounge areas, this makes an ideal centre for self-catered retreats or group holidays. It can also, when occasion permits, be divided up into smaller units for that much needed small group or family break.

For booking availability and all other enquiries please contact us on our enquiries line 0845 873 4984 (Mon-Fri 9am-5pm), or e-mail sandyholme@ymcabournemouth.org.uk.
