    Poole's got seaside class

    Huddled in a wide harbour on the English Channel, Poole has an illustrious history as one of the most important ports on the South Coast – settlers for America and boats taking part in the D-Day landings all departed from here. These days, the quays are lined with boisterous bars and period pubs, punctuated with fish and chip stands. You'll also find countless sailing outfitters touting trips around the bay and the gorgeous Dorset coast. A dash of style – check the millionaire yachts on the moorings and the palm trees on the promenade – mean Poole holiday rentals can be edgy and swish, as well as traditional and cosy.

    All aboard in Poole

    Summertime boating outings are all the rage in Poole. There are loads to choose from. You could just hop on one of the classic trawlers and purr around Poole Harbour to get a better view of the city and its surroundings. Or, you can whiz into the Solent to spy out the white faces of the famous Old Harry Rocks cascading into the English Channel. Other trips offer a stop in pretty Swanage, where vintage steam railways or traditional cream teas are the order of the day.

    Something for the rainy days in Poole

    England can never guarantee the weather, which is why Poole is packed with suitable indoor entertainments for when the rains do come down along the harboursides. The Tower Park is a great bet – it's an all-in-one fun complex, with bowling alleys, cinemas and even a waterpark, with bubbling hot tubs and looping slides. Then comes Poole Museum, its exhibits taking a turn for the swashbuckling as they unravel tales of pirates from yesteryear and reveal the long history of seafaring that exists on this corner of the South Coast.

    Pack an umbrella and swimming shorts for Poole

    Summers in Poole see 1000s of visitors make for Sandbanks and Bournemouth – they are some of the most popular places to lay the towel in all of Dorset. Between June and August, there tends to be plenty of sun to do that, while temperatures can sit in the low 20s. To dodge the main crowds, you might consider a trip in spring's May or autumn's September, when not only are there fewer people on the harboursides, but Poole holiday rentals can leave you with more pounds in the wallet. Just be sure to pack a brolly.

    Poole – hidden on the South Coast

    Poole is sheltered from the main waves of the English Channel by the big bay of Poole Harbour. That extends back from the powdery beach of Sandbanks and its dunes, into the heaths and wetlands of Dorset. The Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty begins right on the doorstep of Poole holiday rentals, which is great news if you're a fan of fossil-speckled coasts and dramatic cliff vistas that crash into the sea. Other highlights of that reserve include the green hills around Corfe Castle and the seaside meadows and rocks of the Durlston Country Park.
