This house was perfect. It was very clean, well stocked with everything we needed. The owner met us at the property and talked us through everything and was there as we left. Great space and superb grounds. Walk able to the beach and a restaurant. We would love to stay when the pool is open. Plenty of space for 8 of you.

Excellent venue for our family holiday. Spacious, well equipped, very clean and comfortable property, with extensive, enclosed private gardens. Located within walking distance of Poole Harbour and Sandbanks beach, with all the activities available there. Would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful week spent with children/grandparents in this little haven of loveliness in Canford Cliffs. We loved being away from the chaos of the beaches, whilst being able to walk to them easily and used this as a great base to explore the area. Pool is superb and comfortably heated and the property is well equipped, even when full to max capacity.

We had a fantastic stay at this beautiful house. We had a wide range of ages (children from 1-9 years old and 5 adults) and the property suited everyone. The pool was well maintained as were the impressive grounds. We would certainly think about coming to this property again

Although it's just three hours from London and the South East, Dorset feels like a world away from the hubbub of the city. This gem of a county offers the very best of rural England: magnificent coastal scenery, vast sandy beaches, rolling hills, charming villages, country pubs, stately homes and medieval castles.

Take time to explore the dramatic and diverse coastline. Stretching 95 miles from East Devon to Poole, the Jurassic Coast has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status. Here, visitors can uncover Earth's fascinating history whilst enjoying unspoilt views over superb beaches, many of which welcome canine companions too. From the iconic rural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland, Dorset has it all.

Why not head to Lyme Regis, classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? Like much of West Dorset, it has an old-world ambience and offers excellent fossil hunting opportunities. Or head east to discover the beauty of Lulworth and the vibrant seaside resort of Swanage.

Steeped in history and with a certain quintessential charm, Dorset's glorious countryside is peppered with small towns and villages which are well worth a visit. Many are graced with fine buildings, immortalised in the books of Thomas Hardy, a Dorset-born novelist and poet. For more energetic visitors, footpaths and cycleways reveal the county's hidden secrets with the coast always close at hand for those who love the water.
