"Very nice little house, close to all amenities."

Easy to book, a stones throw from the water front, and within walking distance of the many bars and restaurants of Poole. Very nice, clean property, with all you could need for a trip away from home. Dorset Itself is a beautiful area, with lots of places to go and explore.
