Why David King chose Poole
Our house is in a quiet and peacful location, close to Poole Quay, Poole Park and the shops and just a short drive to the many beaches including Sandbanks Bournemouth beach and Studland beach. It is a great location to explore the wonderful area of Dorset. Dorset provides such a range of fantastic attractions; you’ll never find yourself struggling to find things to do whatever you’re interested in. The variety of Dorset attractions is such it’s impossible to list them all. Dorset boasts some of the best family attractions that you will find anywhere. Puff your way through the picturesque Purbeck hills on one of Swanage Railway’s classic steam trains. A memorable day out for young and old. The kids will love a day out at Moors Valley Country Park, set in 1000 acres of parkland and woods, there is so much to explore. See if you’ve got a head for heights with the tree top walk ways and conquer the high wire adventure. If you’re looking for some animal fun then we’ve got that covered! Head over to Farmer Palmers Farm Park for a whole day of farmyard fun in the beautiful Dorset countryside. Your little ones will be well and truly worn out after a day of demonstrations, animal handling, tractor rides, bouncing, play area…the list goes on! If you’re looking for something a little different why not go trekking with a llama or walking with a donkey?? Have a day of Monkeying around at Monkey World, the world renowned ape rescue centre with hundreds of rescued and endangered apes and monkey. If you prefer your day to go at a more relaxed pace Dorset still has plenty to interest you. Dorset is home to some of the most fascinating and beautiful stately homes and gardens. Stroll around these magnificent homes and unearth their hidden histories and soak up the Dorset sunshine while discovering the wonderful gardens. Marvel at the manicured lawns and mature shrubs bursting with colours, before enjoying some light refreshments.

Clean and convenient
House provided all we needed. Only criticism would be that for guests staying in winter months it might be nice to have the house warmed up a bit before they get there. (that would also ensure a check was made that the heating was working, however, I can't fault the owner for his prompt response to our plea for help when the long anticipated heating didn't come on!) The house is warm once the heating gets going but it was a bit of a chilly welcome!
However, I wouldn't want this to take away from the fact that we had a lovely weekend and found the location very convenient and lots to do in the surrounding area.
I am so sorry you were unhappy that the house was not warm when you arrived and also the heating did not come on straight away.
Our guests do arrive at various times so it is difficult to know when to set the heating to come on. The house warms up very quickly once it is turned on. Unfortunately, although I had checked the heating the previous day, it had tripped by the time you had arrived. As soon as I got you email I phoned you and instructed how to reset the heating. Had you phoned I could have done this even quicker
However I respect your comments and will try and establish when our guest are due to arrive so that if possible I can set the heating to come on before they are due.
Great location, and a really nice house!
We stayed here with our three young children for 10 days, and it was the perfect place. Very nice house, quiet area, close to everything!
Comfortable property in a great location for seeing Poole and surroundings.
We wanted a property well placed for enjoying the Poole Bay area with easy walking access to The Quay, Poole Park, Sandbanks and easy driving out further. And this house did exactly that. We were able to walk to breakfast on the Quay or the park (10 minutes); walk for sightseeing on Evening Hill and Sandbanks; take the ferry to Brownsea Island; walk around Holes Bay and Upton Country Park; and even a combined walk / ferry / walk / bus to Swanage and back. Driving out to the Isle of Purbeck, Lulworth Cove, Lyme Regis is easy from here (summer traffic nothwithstanding of course). The House comfortably accommodated 4 adults (parents and 2 daughters) for 2 weeks. It's in the heart of the estate so isn't 'a house with a view' - but it doesn't purport to be either. The conservatory is small and we didn't use it except for hanging damp jackets on the couple of wet days we had. Bedrooms are comfortable. The double bedroom can be a little warm in hot weather as it has the airing cupboard. It has a good TV although we hardly used it. Apart from intermittent connectivity on our first day WiFi was good for browsing and music listening over the 2 weeks we were there. Not sure about video streaming. For supplies there is a big Sainsbury's and an Aldi very close by (10 minute walk or 2 minute drive) and a Tesco Express on the Quay. All in all it did exactly what we expected.
Thank you for your review and we are glad you had a great 2 weeks holiday. Hopefully, you found the fan to use at night when it was warm.
You would be welcome back anytime.
