Getting around

The apartment is ideally situated for the beaches, restaurant and shops all a short walk away. The Sandbanks ferry is a short walk and takes you over to the beautiful national trust beach of Studland with great views back to Sandbanks and Poole Harbour. We go by foot and it is free to return at any time. Alternatively you can take the car over and explore Studland and Purbeck with National Trust Corfe Castle about a 20 minute drive. Another great option is to pick up the 50 bus in the summer called the Purbeck Breezer as you can sit upstairs on the open top deck and take in the views to Swanage with the bus having priority on the ferry you won't have to queue and the kids will love it. Why not get the steam train at Swanage to Corfe back?

We have stayed here a few times and will be back next year! Apartment has everything you need, great location to beach, 1 minute walk and your there! Right by ferry also (you can be a foot or car passenger) to knoll beach, swanage beach. Ferry to Brown sea Island also. 5 min walk to cafe, shop, crazy golf and play park. Beaches amazing, never packed. Best time is evening, no one there, also see the ships pass by. Kids 8 and 4 loved it! So much to do and lots of time to relax! Another amazing holiday :)

Owner's reply: Thank you for posting the review. We love the location as well as our kids so much to see and do and no need for the car. We look forward to welcoming you on your return next year. Ian & Colette

“I am reluctant to say”

Reviewed 23 Apr 2018

I would prefer not to say to avoid a battle with booking our next stay. Please, avoid this property around April as I had to wait about 2 mins to get in and the kitchen was only 99% kitted out. I think this happens every April? It was at least a 2 min walk to the beach which was too sandy; it got all between my toes (apparently, it’s 1min 58 in May and the sand turns into cotton wool). The stay, situation, area, community were amazing, I mean average. The area’s sunsets were awful. My children said April is really bad and recommend all the other months instead.

“Family Friendly, Amazing Location, home from home”

Reviewed 4 Mar 2018

This is a great find, we will be staying here again, I can not recommend it enough. Two good size bedrooms, one double and one twin bedroom. Two bathrooms, make it a whole lot easier when you have the kids. A good size TV and WiFi, for those rainy days! 2-3 min walk to the most amazing beaches. A kitchen with all the utilities you need to make a good meal. There a few restaurants within walking distance, as well as crazy golf!

Owner's reply: Thank you for the review. We are delighted you had a great stay and look forward to welcoming you and the family again soon. Ian & Colette

“Another fantastic stay!”

Reviewed 31 Aug 2017

2 parents and 2 kids had a great English beach holiday at Sandhills for the second year running. Even carrying a 3 person a kayak to the beach was easy as it is literally accross the road. The appartment has everything we need to make it our home for a couple of weeks and the owner is really easy to deal with and quick to respond. Sandhills is a fantastic base for cycle rides, walks, ferry trips, resturant visits and of course the beach days. Bring on next summer!

Owner's reply: We are delighted you enjoyed your return trip and look forward to welcoming you back for the 3rd one! Ian

“Relaxing Easter weekend at Sandbanks”

Reviewed 9 May 2017

We stayed at Sandhills over the Easter weekend. We just wanted a chilled out relaxing weekend without any rushing around and that’s exactly what we got. Sandhills is a lovely modern apartment with plenty of space. There was only the two of us so that meant a bathroom each. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the sun with a glass of fizz. It’s easy to get around using the local buses without having to use the car. We went to Bournemouth and Poole on the bus although we were disappointed with Poole as we felt it was a bit run down. We had dinner at Rick Stein and at Shell Bay Restaurant which is easy to get to as a foot passenger on the ferry. The food was excellent at both restaurants. There’s a café by the ferry which does good breakfast baps and the café next to Rick Stein which does nice sandwiches and fries and also sells alcohol. We really enjoyed our stay at Sandhills and would definitely return as there are other places we’d like to visit in the area. There was good communication from the owners and a helpful little booklet which provides lots of information about the apartment and things to do in the surrounding area. We would highly recommend this lovely apartment.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review, we are delighted you enjoyed your stay at Sandhills and look forward to welcoming you next time. Ian

This was a lovely apartment to stay in - a short walk from the beach. The layout and furnishings are excellent - we will stay here again.

“Wonderful weekend in Sandbanks”

Reviewed 5 Apr 2016

The apartment was stylish, comfortable, well-appointed, spotlessly-clean and in a great position near the lovely beach and ferry to Studland Bay. We were lucky with the weather and went on the beach every day. The block was quiet in a peaceful residential area and we had no trouble parking outside the flats. Arranging the rental was easy and the owners are friendly & welcoming.

Owner's reply: Sarah, Thank you for your review. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and hope you can stay again with us. Ian & Colette

“The Perfect Holiday”

Reviewed 10 Aug 2014

We stayed at 4 Sandhills with our 2 children and had a fantastic time. The apartment is lovely and in a perfect location for a family beach holiday. We spent most days on the beautiful sandy beach which is very close to the apartment. A truly stress free option when children can just swim in the sea, play and build sandcastles. There is lots to do in the local area, would highly recommend. Definitely planning a return visit!
