Simply cross the chain ferry (200-300m away) and enjoy the challenging trails and stunning views from the Purbeck hills. If you like lazing away sunny days on the beach, The Retreat is perfectly located with the award winning beaches of Sandbanks (250m) and Studland (400m) on your doorstep.

If you prefer to spend the day in a luxury Spa, then the Harmony Spa is just 300m from the house (see details and prices at the bottom of this page).

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.

Fabulous location and welcome from hosts.

  • 5 out of 5
The house is located in a fantastic area, very close to the beach and local amenities. The house it's self is ideal for a family and has a fantastic interior. We spent most evenings enjoying the last of the sun on the lovely decked area. Helen and Jonathan are very welcoming, and the arrival basket they left for us was a lovely gift. We hope to return soon.

A great break

  • 5 out of 5
This was our second stay at the property, which again did not disappoint. The property has everything you need (both inside and outside) to have a very comfortable holiday and it is well maintained. The location and owners are both great too! The weather was fantastic during our week (close to 30 every day). Lots to see and do in the area with kids of all ages.

I am sure we will stay there a third time, which gives you a summary of our views on the property and the owners.

Lovely property, fantastic location.

  • 5 out of 5
The property was excellent for our family holiday and the location couldn't be better. It was clean, bright and modern and had everything you needed. Helen and Jonathan were very friendly and welcoming with lots of helpful tips to make the most of our stay. Will definitely stay again.

Just fabulous

  • 5 out of 5
Just amazing, the place is absolutely gorgeous, spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and in a wonderful position. Nothing is too much trouble for the hosts, Helen even answered me on Easter Saturday and helped me make last minute plans for my "ever so slightly difficult" CEO to stay. There is nothing you could fault, and we will definitely use again (and again!) Do not hesitate to book if you get the chance.

First visit to Sandbanks

  • 4 out of 5
We found everything about 'The Haven' was as described on the website. On arrival we were surprised to note that the property was a bungalow but this turned out to be irrelevant the moment we stepped inside. The property was immaculate, bright and airy,very well laid out and converted to a very high standard, ideal for our party of 4 adults and 2 children.
The decoration was faultless, the beds very comfortable with top quality bed linen and towels. The kitchen was well equipped and spacious.
We found the outside decking a real bonus and an added surprise was the lovely garden and good size lawn which enabled the children ( and adults!) to play some ball games.

We particularly enjoyed taking a boat ride to Brownsea Island and the ferry to Studland and having the benefit of a 10/15 minute leisurely walk to the lovely local beaches.

Helen provided excellent customer service and was always anxious to ensure our stay was an enjoyable experience for us - which it was. We hope to return and would certainly recommend 'The Haven' to anyone wishing to holiday in the area.

Wonderful property in dream location

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at this property in April 2014 and cannot recommend it highly enough. Helen was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish and even provided us with a welcome basket of goodies on arrival. The property is exactly as described, clean with a modern comfortable interior and a lovely outdoor deck and garden to enjoy the morning and afternoon sunshine. Ideally located in the middle of Sandbanks, just a short walk to the harbour and the stunning sandy beaches !
