We've been to Dorset, in particular to Purbeck, many times and found Harbour Shallows last minute. We happily sat on the balcony watching boats sailing through the harbour and spotting dogs in the park opposite with our one year old for hours. It really is an outstanding view.
The flat itself had everything you need, and some luxuries like a coffee maker! Decoration was good, all in good order. The shower was powerful. Having a dishwasher was brilliant.
Location wise, incredibly handy for the park, a pleasant mile or so walk to Pool Quay, and 3 miles down to Sandbanks. A simple drive out of Poole and round the harbour when we wanted to avoid the chain ferry.
Zoe, the owner, was more than helpful, giving us some eggs from her chickens and a little book for our daughter.
All in all we had a great holiday and would recommend the flat to any couple or small family looking for somewhere in the area.
