Great having shower room/toilet downstairs.Within walking distance to the town and Quay.You could even manage to stay here and not need your car.The view when sat at the dinning table is fabulous, also the same from upstairs bedroom.Lots of towels available. Great having WiFi and landline phone. Poole Arms is the best for fish dishes do not do chips all comes with lovely vegetables. Master Chef great chinese takeaway. The Brewhouse and Kitchen is great microbrewery pub well worth a visit if you like different beers. The boat trips to Bownsea Island are well worth doing. Simon the owner is a lovely gentleman.Will be recommending to friends and family. Another frying pan,and a baking tray would be handy, also a measuring jug(had to make gravy granules in a mug) these are only suggestions has we stayed two weeks and did cook our own meals.
