*Visit England assessor comments* - October 2013:

"Distant Hills is situated in the heart of Poole and is an ideal base for exploring the surrounding area. High quality bathrooms and kitchens have been installed with excellent tiled floors. Firm mattresses on the beds and the apartment is ideal for four persons. Excellent welcome gift on arrival consisting of wine, beverages, nuts and all local produce."

*Guest Comments*

"Had a wonderful few days revisiting my place of birth. The apartment was fantastic - well situated, clean, equipped with everything we needed, warm (much appreciated when coming from 40 degrees!!!) and most importantly a helpful, friendly staff. Thank you."

Mr and Mrs Mann - December 2013

"Thank you Quay Holidays have just returned from a wonderful holiday in Poole. The apartment was excellent, very clean, plenty of room and very well equipped. The view of the swing bridge was super, especially at night. We left the car in the secure parking area and were able to use the local bus service (a bus into Bournemouth every 5 mins). Quay and High Street right on doorstep ideal for us 'oldies'. Hope to be back next year."

Jenny and Michael - August 2013

"Great, everything we needed, position and views excellent, the young lady who greeted us went out of her way to help. Can't wait to come back."

The West Country region

Dorset is an area of amazing contrasts of breathtaking scenery and urban culture. Absorb our history and heritage or simply relax in one of the most beautiful and diverse parts of England.

The Jurassic Coast provides an ideal playground for fossil hunters and families alike and has recently been awarded a World Heritage Site status.


Poole Quay is an exciting, ever-changing blend of maritime activity and a focal point for a wide range of entertainment and leisure activities. Pleasure craft offer trips direct from the Quay to Brownsea Island, Sandbanks and beyond, whilst anglers can book fishing trips at the Fisherman's Quay. If you simply want to promenade along the waterfront, past the visitors marina, have a meal and a drink then the Quayside and Old Town areas are packed with restaurants, pubs and wine bars offering huge variety and choice.

From the Quay, shoppers can stroll up the pedestrianized High Street, which offers a wide range of retail outlets and facilities. Safe Blue Flag sandy beaches at Sandbanks and Branksome Chine are just 15 minutes away by car and the natural beauty of The New Forest is approximately 30 minutes distance away. A short trip on the Sandbanks chain ferry offers the option of even more beautiful beaches skirted by sand dunes and walks in the historic Purbeck Hills.

"Magnificent Apartment in the Heart of Poole's Old Town."

This is a fantastic apartment, right in the middle of Poole Old Town. Very clean throughout, and everything that you might need is on hand. The balcony has dual aspects, the main view is over the town… More

Hi Geoff, really pleased to hear your very positive comments on Distant Hills. We always welcome feedback from guests, in case we can improve our services. I'm sorry about the seagulls – as locals we're immune to their noise, but it does take a little getting used to. I recommend plenty of return visits! Kind regards, Helen.
