The property was ample space for myself, fiancé and our dog and was immaculate with all the facilities you need. Alison is an absolutely lovely lady who is very helpful and not only made us feel at home but our dog Teddy too. On our arrival we found we had been left bread, milk, butter and fresh eggs from their chickens, not only very thoughtful but a lovely touch. We also had a lovely welcome from Golly the dog. We visited a local pub a few times which was a short walk from the property, the staff were very welcoming and the food was lovely, once again very dog friendly. We will definitely be booking a week's stay for the summer.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      We loved the house - it was modern with fab LED lighting and high-end fittings. The open plan kitchen/diner/lounge made it the perfect place for our family of 12 (8 adults/4 children) to relax and be together. We were there over Christmas and the owners put up external llights, a tree and decorations for us. I think the owners must use it themselves quite regularly as there are a few of their personal things there like photos and toys. The playroom is great and full of toys plus a TV/DVD player. We couldn't get this to work but have since found out there is a secret switch behind! All the bedrooms are huge and at least two can easily accommodate the camp beds used by the children. The kitchen was well equipped (apart from no colander!) and we easily cooked our Christmas dinner for 12. We brought in the garden table and chairs to all be able to dine together. The lounge is comfortable, the TV is enormous and the children enjoyed playing on the XBox. We all loved the hot tub - especially in December! The location is on quite a busy road which can be noisy from the bedrooms on that side but convenient for the proximity to Tescos and M&S Food. We walked to the Horns Inn for a fab pub lunch and also drove to Sandbanks beach (25 mins drive away). We would really recommend this property for up to 8 adults/4 children. It really is lovely!

It's warm , clean and comfortable. It's also on the quiet side of the house so we got a really good nights sleep . Very reasonably priced for the accommodation provided. I would definitely recommend it .
