The West Country region
The Poole & Bournemouth area has long enjoyed a reputation as one of the finest seaside holiday locations in the UK. It possesses all the ingredients for the perfect family holiday or quiet 'getaway' with miles of multi-award winning sandy beaches, extensive Watersports, stunning countryside, excellent shopping and a wide variety of restaurants, bars, cafes and clubs. Combined with an annual events calendar that now includes Beach Polo at Sandbanks, weekly activities on Poole Quay or Sandbanks beach (with fireworks!) and the Bournemouth Air Festival in August, it's easy to see why many families have been coming for years (indeed, generations).
The area's natural beauty is due in large part to the abundance of wooded parks 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! Cliff top walks are numerous and provide wonderful views over Poole Bay, from Hengistbury Head in the east, past the Needles at the western tip of the Isle of Wight, across to Old Harry Rocks, marking the eastern tip of the 'Isle of Purbeck'.
To the western edge of the region is Poole Harbour, argued to be the 2nd largest natural harbour in the world (after Sydney)! In excess of 100 miles of coastline form the harbour whose landscape ranges from the National Trust controlled western shores at Studland and Furzey, around to the bustling town and Quay of Poole, along to the Sandbanks peninsula forming the southern and eastern boundary of the harbour. In the harbour is found the historic and beautiful National Trust island of Brownsea, site of the first Scout Camp in 1907 and one of the few remaining homes of the native Red Squirrel. Boats to the island leave from Poole Quay or the tip of the Sandbanks Peninsula.
In addition to a bustling Quay, Poole boasts excellent shopping and cultural activities, with the art centre (Lighthouse) being home to the world famous Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. Poole Park offers a range of activities including water sports and a miniature railway.
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 as well as the extensive open spaces of the New Forest.
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'!
We look forward to welcoming you to this beautiful part of the South Coast.
Direct access to Award Wiining beach.

"Lovely location, shame about the storage, or lack of..."
We didn't choose this property, but were moved to it as the one we booked went off the market! the handling of that by Rumsey holidays was poor at best, we only found out after a friend called them to check something...
We stayed for a week during June 2013, the property is in a great location, easy walking distance to the main beach, restaurants and other facilities.
The house itself is very nice, but we did find a few things that could be improved.
The biggest issue was the total lack of storage. Not a single chest of drawers in any of the adult bedrooms, and a very small chest in the bunk bed room. So we all spent the week living out of our suitcases as there was simply no where to unpack to.
The kitchen is fairly well stocked, although the cups and glasses were dirty in the cupboard, with dust, and the knives were just about blunt to the point of useless.
Again, very little storage in the kitchen, so supplies were left mostly on the sides.
Nice bathrooms, no storage their either.
The garden needs work - fabulous view of the ocean, blocked by the bushes, and a lack of garden furniture (no sun loungers) - we had to buy our own coals for the BBQ.
Sort the storage out, and we would go back.

"beautiful location and perfect for weekend getaway"
A beautifully located 10 person cottage on the sandbanks. Very good condition and in a perfect location. We had a lovely weekend for 8 friends away here and have nothing to complain about. It was on the expensive side but then you are staying in sandbanks and you are able to bbq on the beach. If this is in your price range I would strongly recomend it.
