The favourite seaside hotel of children's author Enid Blyton that is said to have inspired her classic Famous Five adventures has gone on sale for £15 million.<br />
<br />
Blyton, also famed for writing the Secret Seven and Noddy books, was such a fan of Knoll House Hotel in Studland, Dorset, that she would visit three or four times a year, often for weeks at a time.<br />
<br />
It was while at the remote establishment, on the tip of the Isle of Purbeck, that she would write stories inspired by her own countryside adventures that would go on to become Famous Five novels.<br />
<br />
The hotel, situated in four acres of gardens and woodland, has been built up into an 84-bedroom property boasting a spa, heated outdoor pool, children's playground, tennis courts, a nine-hole pitch and putt golf course and direct access to Knoll Beach.<br />
<br />
It is now on the market with Savills estate agents after owner Christopher Ferguson decided to sell up.
