Situated in the heart of the Lakeside Estate, Harrington House is a beautiful three-bedroom cottage, with weathered wooden cladding and vast windows that reflect the luscious natural surroundings. Offering the opportunity to immerse yourself in stunning nature, whilst enjoying all the creature comforts of a modern holiday home, Harrington House is the perfect holiday retreat, a real escape from the world! The Lakeside Estate is located in the perfect place to take in some of the best spots on Dorset’s Jurassic Coast, from the dramatic beauty of Lulworth Cove to the historic charms of Lyme Regis.

This property also benefits from full access to the Activity Hub Membership and access to the Estate Spa, included in the cost of the accommodation providing you with complimentary access to bikes, canoes, kayaks, and stand-up paddle boards during your stay. After all that activity a spa trip should be on the cards and fortunately the Lakeside Estate has its very own with a fabulous rooftop bar where you can enjoy a sundowner with a view, before returning to the comforts of your own cottage. 

The ground floor of the house is open plan, with bi-folding doors opening out to the terrace so you can step in and out with ease. The large kitchen is at the heart of the home with a big island and plenty of space to cook all your favorites. As with everything in this modern home, the dining table is generous, with ample space to sit together as a group enjoying good food and great conversation. The adjacent lounge area has an atmosphere that makes you instantly relax, with comfy sofas and a warming wood burner, perfect for curling up at the end of an active day. 

The first floor of the house boasts three bedrooms; a master suite with a king-size bed, a double room, and a bunk bedroom for kids. The master suite benefits from its own en-suite shower room, whilst the remaining two bedrooms share a family bathroom. 

Whether you are looking for outdoor active adventures, family time on the beach or a relaxing break at the spa, there is something for everyone at Harrington House, all you need to do is turn up and relax!

What you should know…

  • The double bedroom is a little small, the bed itself takes up most of the room
  • While the house is brilliant for family holidays, young children might need supervision to explore the grounds due to the open nature of the area
  • Please be aware there are no water-based activities between November and February for health and safety reasons

The dramatic Jurassic coastline plays protector to the wild heathlands and rolling dales of beautiful Dorset. It is no wonder that this captivating area has enticed filmmakers, poets, authors and artists for centuries, with visitors allured by the sweeping golden beaches, grand historic houses, cobblestone market towns and idyllic country pubs. 

All around the Lakeside Estate and scattered down the Jurassic Coast there are picturesque towns to visit. From the breezy coastal town of Poole to the rich history of Dorchester and the picture postcard vistas of Lyme Regis. The Estate itself is located amidst the rugged beauty of this area, in the environs of West Dorset. Formerly the site of RAF Warmwell, the Estate boasts a rich history, offering a breath-taking space combining unspoilt nature, beautiful wildlife, and modern luxuries, so you can leave all worries behind, settling in for a holiday of complete relaxation.  

Enjoying the great outdoors is all part of a stay at the Lakeside Estate, with waterways to discover, cycle pathways to relish and the rolling Dorset Countryside to explore. Whether you want to hop in a kayak, canoe, paddleboard or bike, there is something for everyone, it is a real of hub of activity! The Estate’s tennis court and 3G artificial-turf Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) in Beaumont Village offer the perfect facilities for a quick knock-about or a lively game of five-a-side football with friends and family. The views from the courts over Beaumont Lake are gorgeous, making for a tricky distraction when you are trying to hit a winning shot! 

Lowland heathland is one of Britain’s most important habitats for wildlife conservation. The outer Heath is a SNCI (Site of Nature Conservation Interest) and it supports an unbelievable range of plants, birds, insects and mammals making it a remarkable place for wildlife spotting. For those eager to get close to nature, there are hundreds of acres to explore, with woodlands and hedgerows sheltering this diverse array of native wildlife. You can explore down the waterways, or by foot or bike making the most of the vast network of private footpaths. 

After a busy day immersed in nature, the Estate Spa is the perfect respite. The spa has been designed to offer a tranquil sanctuary of stress-free indulgence and ultimate relaxation! There is an outdoor pool, roof terrace, sauna, gym, library and a ‘restful relaxation’ lounge for some post treatment ‘you’ time. In the peaceful, candlelit treatment rooms you can enjoy an array of luxurious treatments.

Of course, no holiday is complete without a satisfied appetite. Your holiday home offers its own kitchen for home cooked delicacies, or for a night off, there are plenty of options within the Estate and in the surrounding towns. The Hurricane Terrace and Bar is located on the roof terrace of the spa, offering bespoke cocktails inspired by the area and a variety of snacks and small plates if you are feeling peckish. The Estates traditional handmade yurt offers the perfect spot for a lazy afternoon, with an outdoor woodfired pizza oven which is often fired up by expert chefs to provide the tastiest authentic woodfired pizza using the freshest local ingredients. Hours will idle by, as you play bored games, tell stories, and get cosy by the log burning stove!

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Dorset has been a popular holiday location for families for years past. The rugged coastline, golden sandy beaches and outstanding natural beauty make it feel like one large playground for kids to enjoy and the Lakeside Estate only emphasises this. 

The Estate has been designed with families in mind, with plenty to enjoy for kids and adults alike. There are four fantastic playground areas for them to revel in, and treasure hunts around the estate, so you can enjoy the spa whilst they run wild and free! 

The Estate boasts hundreds of acres to explore, with woodlands and hedgerows overflowing with wildlife. You can explore via waterways, taking kids on paddle boards, or in canoes and kayaks, adding a little education into the fun as they spot vibrant birds and native plants, between falling in and out of the water! Private footpaths wind around these picturesque grounds, so you can all hop on bikes for active adventures or watch kids running ahead as you indulge in a long walk. 

The island, which is tucked away amongst the untouched foliage of the Warmwell Heathland, offers a haven for the whole family. This secret gem in the woods creates a beautiful, secluded spot for children to run free and adults to be at one with nature. Children can climb, slide and zip-line through the trees, whilst you enjoy a gripping novel or take a relaxing swim in the eco-pool. Bike routes and walking trails connect this secluded area to the Estate, although we can already guess that you might never want to leave! 

The Airstream kid’s area is brilliant for families. A beautiful silver Airstream has been transformed into a cosy reading and play area for kids so both you and your little ones can wind down after all the active adventures on offer.
