If you sail, the Royal Motor Yacht Club is within 100m and offers visitors berthing by arrangement. If your prefer mountain biking you are at the gateway of some of the best mountain bike trails on the south coast. Simply cross the chain ferry (200-300m away) and enjoy the challenging trails and stunning views from the Purbeck hills.

Why Helen chose Dorset

5 minutes walk to Sandbanks beaches.

This used to be our home and so is furnished to a high standard. We are very proud of it and ensure it is maintained to a level we would expect in a holiday home.

What makes this house unique

Decked area and a garden

Lovely Sandbanks holiday home.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our weeks stay in this cosy yet spacious property which had a modern well equipped kitchen,comfortable beds and a relaxing lounge area.The decking area accessed from the kitchen was made good use of when the sun was out.The location is excellent and the area itself has a Mediterranean feel .Good places to eat about 10/15 mins drive away but also a Rick Stein restaurant 10 mins walk.The welcome pack was much appreciated and Jonathan/Helen were available for any queries. Highly recommended.

Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

The house is very modern internally and well equipped, with everything we needed for a 3 generations holiday. The garden is a real bonus as it gives a safe place for kids to play. Off street parking is also really valuable in a busy place like Sandbanks. Location perfect for the beach, as well as a great Rick Stein restaurant. We highly recommend it as a holiday base.

Perfect Location for the Perfect Staycation

  • 5 of 5

The retreat is a very charming property which makes you feel relaxed and comfortable as if you were in a familiar surrounding. It is a few minutes walk to the beach which was perfect for us as we have 18 month twins so we always on the look out for things that make life a little easier! The garden was also a perfect little haven for them and a great spot for us to relax with a glass of wine once they were in bed. The garden has a few steps down to the lawn which was fine for our twins as they are good walkers but might be tricky if you had a baby that was just starting to walk.

We would definitely recommend the retreat and the sandbanks for a holiday destination and I'm sure it won't be our last visit.

We were very lucky with the weather that obviously helped 😎

Fabulous property

  • 5 of 5

Location is excellent as it is close enough to the beach for us to bring the toddler back for her lunchtime nap. Beautifully appointed property with a homely feel. We had a super family holiday and will definently be back. (Not impressed with Rick Stien's restaurant.)

Relaxing holiday in a spacious property

  • 5 of 5

Jonathan and Helen are great hosts , very welcoming, and just around the corner if you need anything. The house is spacious , modern , and in a quiet area, but just 5 minutes walk to the amazing beaches of Sandbanks, and a short walk to the Studland Bay ferry ( not to be missed) . There are a variety of eating options nearby, and the house has a decent sized garden with a decked area and seating to enjoy the sunshine, and a grassy area for children to play on. We would definitely return.
