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.

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.

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!

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.
