Free your spirit along the Dorset coast

Studland, Dorset

Experience Purbeck’s surf and turf by learning to sail or horse ride through the waves.

Get away from it all at Studland Beach and the waters of Poole Harbour. Poole Harbour is one of the largest natural harbours in the world and provides calm waters for sailors of all abilities. Try a taster session or take a course with the RYA-recognised Shell Bay Sailing School.

You never know, you might find your sea legs and catch the sea breeze whilst taking in the beautiful views of the harbour and its five islands.

If your prefer terra firma, head to Studland Stables who can organise that epic dream of riding along a beach on horseback.
