Lovely property in a beautiful location

5 of 5
Just spent 3 nights at the property (6 adults and 2 toddlers) and we only have positive things to say about the trip. The property is spacious, well laid out, and clean, with great facilities (the kitchen had everything we needed). Lovely L-shaped garden that wraps around two sides of the property - perfect for the toddlers, and a nice barbecue space for the adults. All four bedrooms were a great size, and it was just pleasure having a base like this from which we could explore the area. in terms of location, we were only around 9 miles from the coast, so it was a short drive to Boscombe beach. We also went for a walk in the nearby Holt Wood, which was beautiful. We had a fantastic lunch in the local pub (5 min walk away), and it was welcoming to a group with two toddlers. We would all highly recommend staying! Ps - Angela left welcoming scones, clotted cream and jam, which was a really nice surprise :-)

A wonderful holiday

5 of 5
Cosy and quiet flat, well furnished, a very friendly and helpful owner, excellent location for touring Dorset, visiting Stonehenge, Salisbury .. We had wonderful breakfasts and dinners outside (photo). Sunnydale Holiday Flat definitely ranks among the top three of our stays in England and Ireland.
