Lovely place. Would stay again

  • 5 of 5

Great location, lovely house, almost too nice! Kids loved it and its proximity to the beach. Ashley was very welcoming and far from intrusive. And very helpful when she had realised we'd left a full back pack!

Would definitely stay again

About Ashley Hare

We both met while working on Super Yachts and decided to use our service and hospitality skills to set up The Garden Cottage. The Cottage is located alongside our house so we aim to provide a level of cleanliness and service that we personally oversee.

Ashley Hare purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Ashley Hare chose Poole

We take charge of all aspects of the property from cleaning to sorting out any problems that might occur. We take great care in making sure the Cottage is always looking at its best and that everything is in place for you to have a great stay.

What makes this cottage unique

Everyone loves the open plan nature of the property with the vaulted ceilings. During the summer months you can enjoy the peaceful garden and nearby beach, whilst in the Winter you can just relax and curl up in front of the log burning stove and watch a movie.
