perfect

  • 5 of 5

Dedicated parking space. Comfortable and contemporary little house. Ground floor bedrooms have comfortable beds topped with spotless quality bedding. Adequate wardrobe space for a one week holiday. Open plan living space on first floor is a pure delight. Panoramic views from Sandbanks, Brownsea, Corfe Castle and further west. Glass fronted balcony is a real piece de resistance, making al fresco meals a must. Wi-fi, telephone and the usual entertainment facilities. The location makes this a good base for walking to Poole Park and Parkstone Park (look out for the ten free fitness stations along the way) - or walking into town where there are more quality restaurants and shops than anyone could wish for. We particularly enjoyed Da Vincis italian restaurant on the Quay.

We have stayed here before, and have already booked for next Summer. We consider this one of the best self catering holidays we have ever had, and happily recommend Corfe View to all our family and friends.

Top marks to Simon for customer service.

The view was fantasic

  • 5 of 5

The upside down house is brilliant for sitting on the balcony watching the sea. Corfe view is well equipped. Plenty of leaflets on the local area. Very close to the Quay.

Simon's upside down house Poole

  • 5 of 5

Pre arrival paperwork was received in plenty of time and was helpful and easy to follow. Corfe View was in good location , was very clean and had plenty of household items. Simon was a very attentive proprietor who wanted us to have a great experience in his house. We would use this property again.

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for providing a clean and well equipped place to stay. The description given is accurate of the house, view etc. Simon is very approachable and gives quick response to inquiries etc. This is our second stay at Corfe View and we will be back!

Tynam Village is a great place to visit- a ghost town after the villagers were all forced to leave. Other historical places worth a visit are the chain library in Wimbourne Minster and the Priory at Christchurch.

For beautiful scenery, visit Lulworth Cove and take the cliff walk to Durdle Door. There is a walk to a bay from Tynam Village that is worth a visit too. Gold Hill in Shaftesbury - the home of the Hovis Advert is well worth a visit and the little local shops are lovey where you will find different gift ideas. The Coffee shop at the top of Gold Hill has by far the best cream tea we had.

The best restaurant on the Quay is the Luigi Italian Restaurant. Owned by brothers and all the pasta and pizzas are home made on the premises. Puddings are not home made though and a bit disappointing that they still use squirty cream on them all.
