About Wendy Smith
Bucknowle has been our family holiday home since 1991, but we have spent holidays in Dorset with our parents too. I grew up in Cornwall and my husband in Kent where we now live. We enjoy using the house with family and friends and also just by ourselves. We love the coastal and country walks, spending time at the beach and in our beach hut at Studland, playing golf at Purbeck and exploring the local towns and villages. The house is comfortable all through the year and particularly cosy in the winter with the fires lit.
Wendy Smith purchased this House in 1991
Why Wendy Smith chose Church Knowle
Our house is extremely spacious, comfortably furnished and equipped. It is sited in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which offers a wide range of activities. The beaches are varied and within easy reach, country walks are right on the doorstep, and the entrance to Poole Harbour marks the start of the South West Coastal Path. The location is good for exploring Dorset and across the borders to Somerset and Devon. The house is great to use all year round

Good location for seeing Dorset coast
Had a great stay , plenty of space. Very well equipped kitchen. Conservatory was great for afternoon tea or cocktails. Great location for seeing the local area. Corfe castle was less than a mile away , and Kingston lacy about forty minutes away. Lovely garden and would have liked to spend more time in it but weather wouldn’t permit. Great stay.
Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay at our holiday hone.
We’re delighted you enjoyed your stay. It’s a very special area of the countryside.
Perfect for family
We enjoyed our stay in this very attractive house tastefully decorated. Lots of space for family gathering with four large rooms for sitting and or eating. The table in the conservatory was used a great deal for evening meals. Attractive garden. Very quiet and peaceful surroundings. Beautiful countryside and interesting walks and visits. Highly recommend a walk to Corfe Castle via the top of the hill and Studland beach beautifully managed by the National Trust.
Great place for a family gathering
Here for a family wedding. Even managed to decorate a wedding cake. Good dining area , could seat everyone. Good laundry facilities. Beautiful garden with a BBQ. Central to the area so easy to get to everywhere.
Perfect location. Stunning venue.
Will be rebooking.
Great place for family holiday
House is very large, well equipped and great place for family getaway. Location excellent for surrounding areas. Would definitely go back.
Bucknowle Lodge is located between the Purbeck hills in a secluded area of outstanding natural beauty. It is the perfect base to spend time with family and friends any time of the year. Enjoy scenic walks along the South West Coast path or through the countryside, spend happy days on Studland Beach or explore rock pools at Kimmeridge.
It's a great location for cyclists, watersports and boating. The local towns of Wareham and Swanage are bustling, charming and are full of holiday atmosphere. A steam train ride from Corfe to Swanage or a visit to Putlake Farm are always popular for children.
