Salterns Quay (C246)
Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
A STUNNING WATERSIDE TOWN HOUSE situated in the Salterns Marina development and with views from the front across the marina, south easterly, towards Sandbanks and from balconies at the back, westerly, across the Blue Lagoon, towards Poole Town, providing sensational sunsets.
The property (essentially the upper 2 floors of a modern 'townhouse') offers uniquely flexible holiday accommodation, with a large double bed in one bedroom and a unique, 'sectional', circular bed in the other, that can be setup as 2 singles or a large, circular double (please specify required setup at time of booking).
Local shops and bus routes are a short walk away in Lilliput village centre. Poole town centre is approximately 4 miles distant (by road) and the award winning beaches at Sandbanks are just under 1.5 miles away. A small harbour beach is also directly accessible from the rear of the property, as well as the waters of the Blue Lagoon.
Entering via the external staircase, the front door leads directly into the kitchen/dining and lounge - a large space running front to back, providing plenty of natural light. The fully fitted kitchen is augmented by a stainless steel 'breakfast bar' providing good views from the bar stools, across the marina. From the lounge, double doors lead to a balcony and decked area, which in turn leads to a footpath, providing access to the water's edge at both the Blue Lagoon and small harbour beach at Saltern's Point. Upstairs, 2 bedrooms (1 Double; 1Circular Double (can be adapted to 2 'non-traditional' singles)) and family bathroom with bath, separate shower cubicle and WC.
Linen and towels are included and there is ample parking on the hotel/marina forecourt (N.B. garage and ground floor NOT available for tenant use). Wireless Broadband and Sky TV is included.

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.
