Apartment 6, Landmark
Apartment | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 7
Our wonderful comfortable and spacious holiday home is in the heart of the exclusive Sandbanks peninsula. The apartment is located in an extremely secluded spot nestled amongst pine trees and landscaped gardens with views across the trees to the sea. Landmark is only a five minute woodland walk to beautiful beaches reaching from Sandbanks to Bournemouth. This is a uniquely quiet part of Sandbanks with squirrels in the gardens and lots of birds.
Landmark has an unusually large south facing balcony, which is a fantastic sheltered suntrap for your whole party to dine, socialise or soak up the sun on those warm summer days, a truly relaxing haven.
Landmark really does have the best of all worlds, being positioned in leafy surroundings, a short walk away from the beach, great restaurants and cafes, the chain ferry to Studland (by foot or car), Brownsea Island National Trust reserve by ferry, Poole Harbour (and with the convenience of Tesco Express which is now on Sandbanks). We have spent many days of our holidays at Landmark simply not needing the car, enjoying the beaches, crabbing from Poole Harbour wall, watching water sports in Poole Harbour, enjoying the fantastic childrens play area on the beach, which often has visiting bungee jumping or giant water orbs, crazy golf too! but equally the area is fascinating, with extremely beautiful countryside and a wealth of interesting places to visit by car too.
The apartment is approached by external steps to the entrance. On this floor you will find the living room/dining area with patio doors to the balcony, the kitchen and separate toilet. There are stairs down to 3 bedrooms: 1 treble (a double and a single bed), 1 twin and 1 double accessed through utility room (with access from one side of bed). There are two bathrooms, one with shower over bath, bidet and toilet, the other with shower with toilet.
You will have use of free unlimited broadband at the apartment. The flat has gas central heating. The kitchen is equipped with gas hob, electric oven, microwave, dishwasher and fridge freezer. The utility room has a washing machine. There is a travel cot and highchair for family use. The TV has an integral DVD player. The balcony has a recliner chair and table, chairs & shade.
Regrettably we cannot accept stag or hen parties at Landmark.
We look forward to welcoming you to this beautiful part of the South Coast.

Sandbanks is famed for its glorious white sandy beaches and relaxed atmosphere. Sandbanks Beach is highly regarded both as a safe swimming beach with lifeguards on duty during the main season and is also renowned for its windsurfing, with the renowned Wind Fest at the beginning of September. The glitterati gather for the annual Beach Polo and weekly fireworks over the summer period are just a couple of exciting attractions to take place on the beach. It's easy to see why many families have been coming for years (indeed, generations).
Sandbanks possesses all the ingredients for the perfect family holiday or quiet 'getaway'. The area's natural beauty is due in large part to the abundance of wooded parks, cliff top walks and other open spaces, that create a 'park' like setting with wooded 'chines' leading down the cliffs to the beaches – there are 7 of these between Sandbanks & Bournemouth alone! The formal gardens at Compton Acres in the Canford Cliffs area are a major regional attraction. A short car ride away are the historic towns of Christchurch, Wimborne, Dorchester & Blandford, numerous Dorset villages such as Corfe Castle and Shaftesbury, the extensive open spaces of the New Forest and the unique and beautiful Isle of Purbeck.
Panoramic views extend from Sandbanks across the English Channel from Hengistbury Head (a family favourite) and the Isle of Wight in the east across to the Isle of Purbeck World Heritage coastline in the west. The Sandbanks chain ferry, 15 minutes' walk away, shuttles between Sandbanks and Studland Bay at the mouth of Poole Harbour and there are also ferries from the tip of the Sandbanks peninsula to nearby Brownsea Island Nature Reserve, owned and managed by the National Trust. Brownsea is the site of the first Scout Camp in 1907 and one of the few remaining homes of the native Red Squirrel. Further to the west, the Dorset & Devon coasts have been designated a 'World Heritage Site' and this fascinating coastline is now known as the 'Jurassic Coast' for the huge geological periods revealed by the varying cliff and rock formations, as well as a huge variety of fossils that can be found '..just lying around'!
Poole itself boasts the second largest natural harbour in the world, a haven for wild sea birds and a mecca for watersports enthusiasts. Poole is a vibrant town with a bustling quay and a good variety of shops and restaurants. Poole also boasts excellent cultural activities, with the much acclaimed Poole Lighthouse Arts Centre being home to the world famous Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. Poole Park offers a range of activities including water sports, soft play, ice skating and a miniature railway.
Bournemouth, home of the renowned Bournemouth Air Festival in September, is a short car journey away or walkable from Sandbanks (2.8 miles) along the sea front.
There are some great restaurant venues that you can walk to from Landmark. You might like to try the Haven Hotel for supper or cocktails as you watch the sun go down over Purbeck, on their fantastic harbourside open air terrace. You can take a stroll along the beach to the cool Jazzys bar for beachside drinks or supper. Why not enjoy the glamorous Cafe Shore for a spot of people watching while you watch the lights twinkle across the harbour and spot the occasional celeb!
