Over the past months, we have been enhancing our stunning and popular Sandyholme House retreat in Studland, Dorset through extensive upgrade works.

Sandyholme sleeps up to 28 people and offers the ideal getaway for all – from youth groups and churches to charities and large families. Located a five-minute walk from the beach, the retreat offers the perfect spot for an activity holiday, or simply a relaxing getaway to explore and enjoy the idyllic Dorset coastline.

Over the past four months, the YMCA team has been delivering internal decoration and fixing improvements at Sandyholme, along with upgrades to all eight bedrooms and bathrooms.

We have been managing Sandyholme since 2006, with the property’s history dating back over a century. Members of the public can book a stay at Sandyholme all year round, with booking fees going towards the work we do throughout Dorset communities.

Visitor testimonials for Sandyholme are consistently positive, with one business owner commenting: “Sandyholme offers ample outdoor and indoor social spaces for larger family and community groups. Its proximity to the beach is almost unmatched, and you are minutes away from miles of wonderful walks and some fantastic social settings. Knowing that you are supporting such a fantastic charity as the YMCA, whilst enjoying such a stunning facility, is just the icing on the cake.”

With summer approaching, Sandyholme makes for the perfect seaside getaway.
