For Families


Bring the family to Knoll House, for a special kind of holiday. Once the favourite hotel of children's author Enid Blyton, our Dorset family friendly hotel will delight children of all ages.


A real getaway from it all, televisions will not be missed! With leisure facilities for all, play pitch and putt golf, tennis, make sandcastles or play cricket on the child friendly Studland beach. In summer months, parents have the luxury of relaxing by the outdoor pool, whilst children swim or splash around in the paddling pool.


Our family hotel offers you a children's adventure playground, indoor playroom and child friendly accommodation and dining. For older children there's a games room with pool table, table football, table tennis and acres of grounds to explore.
