Harry's Hut or The Pig Hut

Milligan Beach-275.jpg

Our two shepherd huts are tucked away at the bottom of the garden and have stunning sea views. Each room is made up of two separate huts; one hut is for the bedroom with a cosy double bed and log burner and the other is for the bathroom featuring a free-standing bath. Definitely for the adventurous; if you are one of the taller amongst us, like to travel with a lot of luggage or looking for something a little bit more spacious, we would suggest you book a room in the main house. Even if you do travel light you have to be quite organised to discover the hidden drawers and a place for all your things! Once you get yourself sorted out then it’s great fun and the best sunrise over Old Harry Rocks!

Our Wood Oven Menu is available 12pm-6pm  during the summer months. As always, seating will be on a first come first served basis. Physical distancing will be strictly observed so numbers will be limited. 

During August and September our restaurant has been extended out onto our terrace to allow for physical distancing in line with Government guidance. You will still be able to join us for drop in dining at our wood-ovens, but please note this is weather dependent and wood-oven sittings will not be able to be accommodated inside due to capacity.

Getting here

Gorgeous views & stunning beaches. A 23 bedroom mellow country house perfectly situated along Studland Bay.

THE PIG-on the beach

Manor Road, Studland, Dorset, BH19 3AU
Open in Google Maps

By road

If you’re staying longer than a night or two, a car’s handy for exploring. Less than three hours from London, the Studland Bay peninsula is best reached via the car ferry across the mouth of Poole harbour. You can also reach Studland without using the ferry by following the B3351 down towards Swanage. In the summer roads can become congested with holidaymakers so please allow delays in your journey (but it's worth the effort). There's a free on-site car park for hotel guests.

Nearest station

A train from central London takes around two hours. The closest station is Wareham, on South West Trains' London Waterloo–Weymouth line, about 20 minutes' drive from the hotel; it has connections to Poole, Southampton, Sussex, Wales and beyond.

Taxi service

Excel Taxis are a local taxi service and always on hand to get you where you need to be! Give them a call on 01929 448066 if you're needing a lift to our house.

Nearest airport

If you're needing to be within close proximity to an airport, Bournemouth Airport is 27 miles away and it takes around an hour to get there by car.
