“Lovely house - perfect for a short or long break.”

We (3 generation family) stayed here for a long weekend in December 13 and it was so nice to walk in and find it decorated for Xmas. The house is especially well equipped, clean, nicely decorated and we all instantly found it very homely and relaxing. The kitchen has everything you need ( and more) and includes all the basics such as oils, herbs, condiments etc which means that you do not have to take these yourself. The house was warm, plenty of hot water and additionally logs supplied for the wood burner. The bathrooms ( one family and one en suite) are also well designed and finding they are supplied with my favourite "nougat" toiletries added to my delight in the house. The beds/ pillows are very comfortable. Parking nearby is easy and you can use the car parks close by at weekends ( with permits) The owner was very quick to respond and promptly returned our damage deposit soon after we returned.
Outside there is a small courtyard which I imagine would be nice in the summer for a BBQ etc. It is also very secure so no worries if you have children or have taken your dog.

Location wise it is in a residential area which is a short, flat walking distance to Poole Quay and town which itself is charming with some very good restaurants nearby. There is also a supermarket a short distance away for groceries etc. if required. All in all - highly recommended and I hope to return soon.

“A perfect place for our two young families to spend the weekend”
Reviewed 16 December 2013 for a stay in December 2013

We returned last night from this cottage and we couldn't have been happier with our stay. The cottage is kitted out to a really high standard with everything thought of, that you might need. Christmas decorations were up, which was a lovely touch. Our party was made up of 4 adults and 2 toddlers and we had more than enough space for us. With stair gates, toys, TV in the rooms and a wii, it was perfect for keeping the kids entertained and safe. Just a 2 min walk to Poole high street and quay, it was the perfect location. We will definitely be returning here.

“A beautfully designed cottage close to the quayside”
Reviewed 22 January 2013 for a stay in October 2012
1
person found this review helpful

I used the train to get to Poole and was surprised at how easy it was to walk through the town centre to get to the rental place. The open plan space downstairs with the comfortable sofas, wooden floors and log burner (with the logs supplied!) is really well designed. The kitchen has just about every utensil you might need, all brand new ovens and extras like a Nespresso machine (I brought my own capsules but some were provided). The beds and bedlinen all look spanking new and are really comfortable. The bathroom is almost 5* hotel spec with a rainshower, separate bath etc. It was a short walk to the quayside and the old town with restaurants and pubs but a car would be useful to explore a bit further afield or if you want to get to some of the beaches at Sandbanks.

“immaculate & luxurious house”
Reviewed 17 January 2013 for a stay in January 2013

excellent property, immaculately presented, high standard of cleanliness. More luxury than most hotels, with thoughtful extras that most people would never need! Owner has thought about features and covered most aspects of people's stay - especially with thought to those travelling with children, or during the summer months. Although property is not in the most stunning area (views are not amazing) the proximity to town etc more than made up for it. Owner was exceptional with correspondence and speedy replies/service.

person found this review helpful

This house is fantastic! The pictures don't do it justice! The living/dinning room are very modern with the added benefit of open fire and log burner (logs and coal provided). The kitchen is fully equipped with EVERYTHING you could possibly need. Dish washer, tumble dryer and washer. Up stairs their is 2 double bedrooms with very comfy beds and luxury bedding feather blankets and pillows! The bathroom has separate bath and shower cubical with drench shower head. The loft has been converted in to another large double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with shower and bath. The house has all the convinces of 3 virgin media boxes with sports movies and xl tv package. Also broadband and a landline phone. You can see the owner has spent money on the things in the house high end brands and quality finishing! The out side space is small but ok for a small group. If your looking at Poole forget about a hotel and book this house! You will not be disappointed!
