“Just what we needed.”
Reviewed 10 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We have just spent a very happy week at Birch Haven, Deborah and Brian made us feel so welcome and not simply on first meeting us. The accommodation and amenities suited us perfectly and the garden is so beautiful we wished we had more time to sit in it, although we did benefit from freshly picked raspberries and blueberries! However there is so much to see and do in Dorset we were out every day and there are many leaflets, maps and books in the apartment to whet the appetite. We were lucky with the weather but there are plenty of places to visit which aren't dependent on good weather. Although we enjoyed many varied activities, our favourite day was when we visited the Isle of Purbeck .After a busy day, it was lovely to come back to Birch Haven - a haven of peace and tranquility We never go back to the same place twice - there are so many places to explore - but in this case we're sure we'll make an exception!

We are delighted you both found Birch Haven such an ideal location, and glad you enjoyed the swing seat under the shady oak trees as well as the pond area. Dorset is indeed a great holiday destination, and we are looking forward to seeing you again. Thank you so much for your kind review.

“Very comfortable and a very warm welcome”

Deborah gave us a very warm welcome with an offer of tea and home made Dorset apple cake. The accommodation was ideal as it was two minutes away from our family. It had everything we needed and was located in a quite part of Dorset. It's an ideal place to get to all the tourist areas. My only negative comment would be the single beds, a king size bed would make the accommodation more a five star rating. We will be staying there again next year and look forward to seeing it in the summer and enjoying the beautiful gardens.

“Lovely location, lovely owners, lovely accomodation”
Reviewed 23 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Lovely welcome when we arrived, lovely accomodation with a welcome chocolate cake!
Deborah should go on Bake off, she would win it easily, her chocolate cake and Dorset apple cake were delightful. A lovely peaceful location with delightful gardens to wander around.
We highly recommend and will be returning soon

We are a mature couple, from Noosa Queensland and we stayed at Birch Haven from 3th -11th. August. Peace and tranquility in rural Dorset, yet close to Wimborne and Poole Harbour and beaches. Run by a delightful couple, this self contained apartment is suitable for all ages.

“excellent holiday retreat, comfortable and relaxing.”
Reviewed 4 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This was an excellent holiday retreat with comfortable beds and furnishings. The patio was relaxing, overlooking the extensive large garden which was interesting and beautiful.
We were welcomed with scones and jam by our very friendly host. I have just made some successful blueberry muffins using Deborahs secret ingredient! Delicious!
We travelled around on the local buses which saved us searching for car parking spaces!
Well done and thank you Deborah and Brian.
