Overview

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.

Why Mark & Penny Hockey chose Poole

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.

Highly recommend holiday home

  • 5 of 5

Lovely holiday cottage would recommend to all. Only issue I had was being over 6 foot tall, which made the stairs tricky.

One of the nicest cottages we have stayed in

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is airy, comfortable, spotlessly clean and well equipped. Easily scaore 5*.

It is much nicer to be in a quirky characterful place than a modern box house or apartment. The staircases are bendy, but that is to expected in such an historic building.

The location must be the best in Poole. Quiet as just off the quayside, but a couple of minutes walk to the pubs, shops, restaurants, boats/ferries along the quay. Tesco express just a couple of minutes walk away.

We were warm and comfortable, plenty of hot water, pleased by the off-street parking and used the outside areas to eat breakfast or enjoy a sundowner.

I was in Poole on a combined business and short break trip, and the accomodation, location and style were perfect for me.

excellent holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for a long weekend Easter holiday time. The house was excellent, in a great location for the quay, endless restaurants and pubs to eat at which was children friendly and a short drive to all surrounding attractions.

Penny provided a professional service from start to finish. The house was lovely and clean, had helpful leaflets and essentials. My son cried bout have to leave such an amazing place can't wait to book again!

Pleasing and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage in a prime location. We parked the car ( secured on the property) and didn't move it for 4 days. The cottage was very comfortable and warm despite freezing temperatures.

Quiet location in the Old Town but within easy reach of all amenities.

Unfortunately missed seeing Mark and Penny but always very prompt with all correspondence . Would have no hesitation in returning.

Great comfy cottage in Poole

  • 5 of 5

Really cosy cottage slap bang in the centre of Poole. We visited with young kids and it was great to have everything on the doorstep. Nice restaurants but also quiet. Definitely will be heading back!

Thanks

Great House , Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Great Location as right near the Quay, some really nice restaurants nearby, house was perfect for our needs as a family of 4, and the balcony at the top was a great little sun trap. Also have Virgin TV and Broadband so our boys could keep up with the football. Would thoroughly Recommend.

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
