Re-built by the current owners in 2012, 'Hook Sands' represents arguably the best holiday home currently available in the South of England. This bright, spacious house, with good sized rooms and a kitchen/reception area that includes dining facilities for up to 18, is the result of careful planning and design by the owners. With 6 bedrooms on the first floor and one on the ground floor, 3 en-suite bathrooms, a 'wet room', full length balcony overlooking the beach and with views towards the Isle of Wight, Bournemouth & the Purbecks and an extensive patio and lawn with similar views, this stunning house provides extended family accommodation beyond compare.
Finished to the highest quality throughout, the accommodation is arranged as follows:
The solid wood front door is approached up several steps from the large area of hardstanding which provides parking for 5 to 6 cars.
The entrance hall leads to an extensive, open plan, solid floored lounge / dining and kitchen with panoramic sea views. Whilst this area has been designed to take advantage of the wide ranging views, there are fully separate areas containing seating, dining and a beautifully equipped kitchen including intergrated fridge and freezer and 2 dishwashers. Patio doors open out onto a large patio area with seating, an informal lawned area, sand dunes and Sandbanks beach beyond.
Also on the ground floor is a large beach facing twin bedded room (can be made into kingsize on request) with stunning sea views. This room includes a spacious enuite bath room with a separate shower cubicle. A study/office with a TV and a large utility area, housing the washing machine, tumble dryer, extra freezer facilities and a wet room /wc perfect for showering straight from the beach.
With a large, airy landing leading to:
Two super king double bedroom with ensuite shower rooms and two large twin bedded rooms all with access to the balcony area on the beach side of the property and with extensive views towards Bournemouth, The Isle of Wight, Sandbanks beach, Old Harry Rock, and the Purbeck Hills.

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.
