BEAUTIFUL CHARACTER TERRACED HOUSE IN POOLE'S HISTORIC OLD TOWN

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Poole

2 bedroom character house sleeps 4 + 2 in the heart of Old Town Poole

Our holiday home is a wonderful listed property full of character in a quiet old square with the Church at the centre. The house is beautifully furnished throughout with a fully fitted modernised kitchen and comfortable living/dining area on the ground floor. To the rear of the property is an enclosed courtyard with a small sitting area and also with room to park 1 or 2 cars (depending on sizes). There is a shed for storage.

The winding staircase leads up to the first floor double room with sashed windows and shutters overlooking St James Church. This bedroom has a light and modern fitted en-suite bathroom. Also on this floor is the family shower room, also modern and light. There is a study which has a sofa bed to allow 2 extra people to sleep if required.

The winding staircase leads on upstairs to the second floor double bedroom. From this bedroom a door leads onto a rooftop decked area - super for a quiet sit in the sunshine or evening drink.

Please note that bed linen is provided for the two double beds. We have provided a duvet, mattress protector and pillows for the sofa bed but you will need to bring linen for that. Personal towels are not provided.

For over ten years now, we have enjoyed owning holiday homes and welcoming visitors to enjoy staying in them as much as we do.

Mark & Penny Hockey purchased this house in 2010

This is a beautiful old house in the Old Town of Poole which is full of character. It is so peaceful and yet a few minutes walk to the quay and harbourside.

PERFECT HOLIDAY RENTAL

  • 5 out of 5
mily and I had a wonderful week-long stay in this lovely cottage in Poole Harbour. We took two cars (one a 4x4) and managed to park both vehicles safely on the property premises which was a huge bonus. The cottage itself is fantastic - quirky and original, but extremely practical (ok, the stairs are very narrow so may be difficult for the less mobile) with everything provided as promised, and lovely, private outside space. The location couldn't be better - restaurants and pubs on the doorstep, but unbelievably quiet. The owners are very helpful and responsive, and our deposit was returned without delay. Thank you to the cottage owners - we will definitely be looking to return very soon!

LOVELY COTTAGE

  • 5 out of 5
This holiday cottage is lovely and spacious house right in the heart of Poole. The Quay, shops and restaurants are just around the corner but even then the location is quiet.

Owners very friendly and helpful. Everything was as promised when we arrived. Would recommend to anyone.

Many thanks.

LOVELY COTTAGE, GREAT POSITION

  • 5 out of 5
We had a lovely short break here. Cottage was perfect: comfortable with nice touches and everything you could need.

Lovely and quiet yet so close to harbour and amenities.

Short drive to Poole Park, lovely Sandbanks beach and the ferry to Studland.

Owners very kind and helpful.

A BEAUTIFUL HOUSE IN A WONDERFUL LOCATION

  • 5 out of 5
We spent Christmas week in this lovely home - apart from the good old British weather, everything was perfect. The house is in a wonderful location - just a minute from the Quay with all its restaurants and walking and close to the town centre, yet in a quiet oasis with private parking.

The house is beautifully furnished and equipped with everything we could conceivably have wanted. The bedrooms were very comfortable with the advantage of two bathrooms. The variety of TV channels, WiFi and games provided meant that sheltering from the rain was a pleasure.

The owner could not have been more helpful - the information provided was clear and just what we needed and the information in the house made it easy to work out how things worked.

We would certainly recommend this house to anyone looking to explore Poole and the surrounding area in comfort and style,

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and all the facilities of the house, and indeed it is lovely to be in such a quiet spot and yet only walking distance to lots of other activities,

SPACIOUS HOUSE IN EXCELLENT LOCATION

  • 5 out of 5
My Mum and I recently returned from a four night stay. The house is ideally situated for visiting Poole Quay and well as an ideal base for visiting Dorset/Hampshire attractions such as Swanage, Weymouth, Bournemouth and New Forest. The alley from the back of the house leads directly into one of the main streets in the Quay.
The house is comfortable and spacious with the benefit of two bathrooms and secure parking at the rear of the property.
The bedrooms are large with comfortable beds and plenty of storage space. We enjoyed the selection of TV channels available once we had returned in the evening after dinner.
I would definitely recommend the house to anyone thinking of staying in Poole, looking for home from home comforts.

Our character holiday home is located in a quiet square opposite the church of St James in Poole's Georgian Old Town. It is a minute away from Poole Quay and the harbour front with all its interest. Boats leave from nearby for Brownsea Island and harbour tours. Poole town is only 10 minutes walk away along the atmospheric old High Street with its restaurants and little shops. From Poole, the famous beaches of Sanbanks are a 15 minute drive. Bournemouth is also close and further afield the lovely town of Chritschurch and its historic Priory. The New Forest lies to the East, towns of Ringwood and Salisbury to the North and all the beautiful towns and villages of West Dorset to the West. Around the harbour lies the Isle of Purbeck and the Jurassic Coast with spectacular scenery and quiet coastal walks.

Other Activities: harbour cruises
