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

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.
