The England region

Poole Quay is a lively area bustling with pubs, restaurants, museums and curio shops. The Quayside has regular boats to Brownsea Island, Sandbanks, Wareham and beyond - from day trips to fishing trips and even hiring a Sunseeker for a cruise to Old Harry Rocks and Shell Bay there are so many sightseeing and day trip opportunities right on the doorstep to suit all ages. The quayside is also a great spot to take the children crabbing!

There are several lovely walks directly from Poole Old Town - along the Harbourside to Whitecliff which has a fantastic children's Playground, then through to the wonderful Poole Park. Poole Park has a minature railway, small indoor ice rink, children's indoor soft play, two playgrounds, mini golf, tennis courts, fallen trees for climbing, pedaloes on the lake and a fantastic restaurant and cafe which enjoys views across the lake and beyond into Poole Harbour.

Within a five minute walk is an indoor pool with separate children's pool, and gym with exercise classes on a pay as you go basis. Also for the active visitor there are two circuit training classes in the same street as the property on a Wednesday and Friday evenings for £4 per class on a drop-in basis (www.fightforfitness.co.uk).

The Dolphin Centre has indoor shopping with all the major high street brands and further up the High Street towards the Quay there are lots of fun curio shops, tattoo shops, boutiques and spas.

Poole Museum (entry is free, donations only) is a wonderful place to visit for all ages and houses displays about the history of Poole and the historic Poole Harbour as well as changing installations.

And after all that sightseeing, for some well deserved pampering visit the fabulous Lush Spa in Poole High Street with its eclectic treatment area, advance booking essential!

“FANTASTIC ACCOMMODATION, REALLY WELL SERVICED AND VERY CLEAN, AN ABSOLUTE PLEASURE TO ARRIVE AND STAY THERE”

Reviewed 1 Aug 2016

On arrival I was very very pleased that the property was so beautiful. My party consisted of myself, 1 husband and 3 teenage girls and a little boy of 9 - I had booked to take my two dogs with me but changed my mind at the last min, they were allowed to go though which is amazing and very useful to kinow. (All of the party were suitably impressed, especially the teenage girls particularly with the speed of the internet! and how close they were to the shopping centre). It was very centrally placed for the quay and the town centre. Parking was absolutely fine too even though it was street parking. The property was fantastically kitted out and everything was very easy to use. The provision of bed linen and towels was very welcome. Coffee, tea, sugar, kitchen rolls, toilet paper and other items were all provided which meant you could just relax straight in to your stay. We had booked this property as a relative lives in Skinner Street which is literally round the corner so perfect. Thank you to the caretaker who let us in and showed us around he was very helpful. Thank you very much Sarah - your house was lovely, I wished I had booked for two weeks now.

“Amazing cottage!!!”

Reviewed 13 Jan 2013

We stayed over Christmas, and it was amazing from the moment we arrived. The cottage was so clean and inviting really cosy with an open fire the kitchen was great with everything and more you could need the owners have really put a lot of thought into it, also there were loads of little extras for for example toys for the kids, loads of DVDs for the kids and a wii with wii games!! We loved it so much we have booked to go again!!!! The location is really good too.

Thank you so much for your lovely review - I'm so pleased you had a great Christmas at the Cottage and look forward to welcoming you again soon!!
