About the property

Sleeps 4+2, very private, two secure parking spaces, clean and bright.

Flat 2, Hepworth House is situated in the quiet, residential area of Canford Cliffs, being 1 minute from the Cliffs and 3 minutes from the award-winning Sandbanks beaches on this part of the south coast. Developed as part of a large, red-brick house behind secure electric gates, the flat occupies the first floor at the rear of the property overlooking the garden and comes with two secure parking spaces. Canford Cliffs village is 3-minute walk away where shops, banks, bakeries, cafes, a deli, newsagents, restaurants and hairdressers are all situated. Several quality restaurants are also all within a 2-3 minute walk of the property and Canford Cliffs beach is just down the path at the end of the road.

The flat comprises one double bedroom, with ensuite shower room/WC/sink and heated towel rail, complete with television and DVD player. The second bedroom can either be a double or a twin room, with hotel-standard interlocking beds and the space to add a z-bed in as well, for children and it also has a TV. A travel cot is also provided for those with young families, giving plenty of sleeping arrangement options to suit most requirements.

A second, family bathroom is situated near the bedrooms and has a bath as well as a shower screen and shower head, WC and sink and heated towel rail.

The sitting room is bright, airy and has plenty of comfortable seating, TV, DVD-player, games, books for all ages and an iPod docking station.

The kitchen is fully equipped with seating for six, a large gas hob, oven and a generous fridge/freezer, extractor hood, champagne, wine, large and small glasses, Neptune mugs, crockery and cutlery. Also provided are tea towels, oven gloves, linen napkins, kitchen scales, hand blender, flask as well as ample pots, pans and baking trays.

There is a washing machine and tumble dryer in the separate utility room, off the main corridor, as well as an iron/ironing board, hair dryer and clothes airer.

All linen and towels are provided, including tea towels and bath mats and there is a large storage cupboard off the main corridor for coats, hanging space, bags, clothing, shoes etc.

Whilst we have two private parking spaces at the flat, should you decide not to use a car, there are bus stops at either end of our road mean you have immediate access to easy transport links all round the area, the nearest train stations are Branksome station (2.2miles) or Bournemouth station (4.5miles) and we love cycling from the flat to the beach down the path and along the sea front.

About Jessica

My husband and I bought this flat in 2015 and love the area so much that we have decided we want to use it ourselves and share it with other people who enjoy Dorset, the beach and quiet, clean, airy accommodation for 1-6 people. We have spent a long time equipping and furnishing the flat in a tasteful way with high quality items that enhance anyone’s stay. We hope you love it too.

Jessica purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Jessica chose Poole

Having studied in Bournemouth years ago, it is something of a full circle that we have ended up buying a property here to enjoy with our own family. The flat is in such a gem of a location, very close to the cliff top, to the beach, to the village of Canford Cliffs where most things are to hand and yet it is so quiet, leafy and private. A real find.

What makes this apartment unique

Within walking distance (5 mins to any of these) of the beach, a bakery, a deli, a corner shop, banks, fantastic restaurants, hairdressers and cafes, our flat provides you with an incredibly accessible outdoors lifestyle. Whether you enjoy cycling, wind surfing, kite surfing, sailing, rockpooling, walking, jet skiing or just watching the waves, our flat is the perfect base for an individual or group up to 5 people, including babies, children and even grumpy teenagers!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is really a great property. Located in a quiet road but conveniently sited for local attractions such as Compton Acres, Poole Harbour and shops nearby. The property itself is first class and has all you could need - two bedrooms, two bathrooms, large lounge, functional kitchen/dinner all very well decorated. Would highly recommend.

Fantastic Apartment - Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment, immaculate and with everything you need for a stay in Sandbanks.

Only 5 minute easy walk to the beach, or a short drive round to the chain link ferry and the fantastic area beyond.

Convenient shops for food and supplies also close by but the house is on a nice quiet road and perfectly located for trips in the area for families or adults.

We will be back!

Great family stay!

  • 5 of 5

Had an extended weekend break in this very spacious modern flat. The accommodation was very convenient for local amenities and the beach for our family of 5. Off road parking behind a gated entrance was an added bonus. This lovely flat wIll be high on our list when we next return to Poole!

Lovely property in a quiet secluded location but within easy walking distance of the sea. 5 mins drive into Sandbanks & Poole. The apartment was very clean and spacious and was very comfortable. Mum and I really enjoyed our stay and will definitely return.

Well located, very spacious and well appointed.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend here and enjoyed it very much. The apartment is very spacious and well appointed. We didn’t cook in much (at all) but the kitchen has everything one would need to do so - large kitchen with dining table. Living room and bedrooms are very comfortable. The beach is a five walk away and the surrounding area is rather quiet.I wouldn’t hesitate in staying here again when in the area.

A wondeful, spacious flat, beautifully presented and worth every penny.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for a long weekend (3 nights) and would thoroughly recommend it. The property is very spacious, well presented, well equipped and in a quiet location. For those looking for a place to stay that is peaceful, but not too far from all the "life" of the area, then this is the place to stay.

We really could not fault it in any way and would not hesitate to go back again :-)
