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.

We have been coming to Newton Rd now for nearly 3 years.
Overall, it's a good quality property in a great location.
The more I come here the more disappointed I get because of the following:-
With young children there has never been a non slip bath matt in bathroom. If a child has an overnight accident and wet's the bed, we cannot access the bed linen as locked up under padlock, which never used to be.
Our bed linen in main bedroom used to be good quality white linen, this visit we had an aweful black sheet that wasnt good quality and it was depressing to want to sleep on.
The telephone kept ringing and we couldn't stop it or turn off, this was 9.50-9.30PM.
I have mentioned the utensils and crockery in the property many times, but the advice has not been taken constructivly. The crockery on the sideboard in dining room is a mis match or stuff, mostly cracked and mostly chipped and is just aweful.
The day to day "crockery" in the kitchen cupboards are just diabolical. They're also a mis match of PLASTIC wear not crockery. Theyre old and shabby and we hated using them, as with the cutlery. You can purchase porcelain crockery at John Lewis/Tesco for about £20/25 for a set of 4 and would be much preferable in this quality of property and feel this is the biggest downfall of the rental by far.
I paid £1,500/£1,600 for 10 night stay and wanted to eat off of proper crockery etc especially in this lovely house, but instead I ate off of picnic wear which I have to say was like eating out at Mc Donalds and that was not what I paid the high holiday rental prices for.
I also think that the fridge has seen better days, as when has food in, the food doesnt appear to stay very cold and found the milk went off on temperature 3 (average) and on 5/6 it froze my food and that too was ruined. This is not acceptable for the price and quality of the property.
Response from owner
I will go through the points as Mrs ... lists them.
Non slip Bath Mat - We personally do not like them especially in a rented property. You really have to be careful with the hygiene aspect. Mrs .. has been so many times I would have thought she could have bought her own.
Bed Linen - It should be pointed out that an Agency is used for cleaning and linen. We agree with her comments on the black sheet. Earlier on in our Rental we found out that cleaner was using coloured sheets (brown!) and we did request that she only uses white in our house. The reason the Airing Cupboard is locked is that this is also a family house and our own personal linen etc is kept there. If we leave it unlocked our own linen goes missing with the dirty linen to the Agency. If Mrs ..... daughter has an accident there are three other beds not in use that she could use.
Crockery - We did note Mrs.. comments re the plastic crockery and left a notice that this crockery was for use for picnics or the beach. It was never intended to be used in the house.
The same goes for the cutlery in the kitchen drawer.
The crockery on the large pine Welsh Dresser was meant to be different colours and patterns. We think it looks attractive. There is stainless steel cutlery in the drawer.
Fridge - We really don't understand her comments at all. The house is in frequent use by family as well as clients and no-one has had any trouble with the fridge.
A client that also came about the same month as Mrs.. left us an :Excellent: for everything.
