Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom Cottage with Sea Views and 5 Minutes walk to Town Centre

This fisherman's cottage is possibly in THE PERFECT location in Poole. Situated within a stones throw (literally) from the Sea, and right next to the Fisherman's Dock, with direct access to the sea side foot walk onto the Poole Quayside and Town Centre. There is an abundance of activities that you can book to include Fishing Trips, Dive Boats, Sailing Boats, Parascending and more, as well as fantastic array of bars and restaurants that cater for all ages and tastes. The two bedrooms both have stunning sea views, with the master bedroom looking out over the harbour and across to Brownsea Island. There is a comfy lounge area with all expected facilities and a dining area that leads out onto the 'sun trap' patio and garden that backs onto the harbour and is absolutely perfect for BBQ, playing with your children or just relaxing in the sunshine. This fantastic property is child friendly and has off street parking for 2 cars / boats.

About Andy George

I live on the outskirts of London with my wife and dog and have been lucky enough to travel up and down to Poole since i was a young lad with my family, and now with my own family.

Why Andy George chose Purbeck

The location of this property cannot get much better if you want sea views and to have the option to just leave your car in the drive and walk around Poole and the local area.

We've been slowly upgrading the property over the past few years, and its really becoming what we've envisaged now. Those regulars who come back year on year have been making very positive comments. The bathroom was refurbished in 2014, and in May 2015 all carpets replaced, bedroom, lounge and dining room furniture replaced. An internal redecoration was also undertaken.

The Kitchen and dining room was all replaced in April 2016 with an external decoration undertaken also.

Lovely cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

I am almost afraid to write a good review in case it is booked up next time we want it. The cottage is perfectly situated with views all round; perfect for walking with a dog and into town. It was well equipped and the bed was really comfortable. I hope we go back!

Lovely house and wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, nicely decorated/furnished house and pretty, neat little garden accessed through patio doors. Garden very secure for our dog which is important for us. We were lucky enough to have fantastic weather (30 degrees!) so could really have done with a sun shade especially for the afternoons when the south-facing garden was bathed in full sunshine. Well appointed kitchen with everything you could need (the complimentary milk and tea bags were very appreciated) and good powerful shower. I did find the beds a little too firm for me but the view from the master bedroom is fantastic to wake up to. We will definitely be back.

Owner's Response: HI Donna, Thanks very much for the detailed review and positivity. I'll get on the case with the sunshade that you suggested as is a very good idea. We look forward to having you back soon. All the best Andy

Beautiful cottage in a fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay in a lovely homely cottage, exactly what the pictures showed, spotlessly clean, well equipped, everything you need, home from home. The garden was well cared for and lovely to sit in, have a relaxing drink and watch the world and the boats go by - could have done with an umbrella as it was so sunny! The booking and information from the owner was excellent and it was obvious that any problems would have been sorted very quickly, would definitely like to return. Thank you

Owner's Response: Thanks for such a great review Caroline. Note taken on the umbrella, and will look at getting one ordered for the cottage. So pleased that you had such a great time, and look forward to welcoming you back in the future. All the best Andy

Poole is a vibrant, bustling town with stunning views from the Quayside across Poole Harbour, the worlds second largest natural harbour. You can take a stroll down the quayside where many activities can be booked to include Fishing, Diving, Sailing, Kitesurfing and Windsurfing amongst others. There are also numerous boat trips that can be taken in various directions, up to Wareham, across to Brownsea Island, or to the beautiful Sandbanks and Studland Bay beaches.

There are some fantastic walks to be had along the Dorset Jurassic Coast which is steeped in wildlife for all nature lovers. On that note the harbour is of International importance for wildlife conservation and borders 3 nature reserves, whilst also being home to the rare 'Red Squirrel'.

Poole is of great historical interest having been used by the Romans as an Invasion port to take over the South of England, and as a result there have been historical findings with the oldest being a logboat dating back to 295 BC
