Dorset's attractions are the mild climate, golden sandy beaches & amazing coast.

This beautiful fourth floor penthouse apartment commands constant superb views across Poole Harbour to Arne, Corfe Castle and the Purbeck Hills. It is in the prime position in the block which is in a quiet location just 5 minutes walk from bustling Poole Quay with its restaurants, pavement cafes and bars, yet quiet at night.

Location description from owner

Dorset's attractions are the mild climate, golden sandy beaches, beautiful coastline and countryside. It's weather is favourable, Dorset having amongst the most sunshine hours per year in the UK.

There are the dramatic ruins of Corfe Castle (National Trust), the Swanage Steam Railway, the long sandy beaches of Studland and the fascinating Sandbanks Chain Ferry (single car crossing approx £3) within a short distance. Treat yourself to tea at The Haven Hotel with its consevatory overlooking the entrance to Poole Harbour and the chain ferry.

Spend some time on the beaches of Sandbanks Peninsula, Poole, famous for having some of the most expensive properties in the world. Drop into Jazzy's Cafe (Shore Road) on a Sunday morning and read the papers and people-watch. See the Fireworks Display Summer Thursdays 10pm at Poole Quay.

Thomas Hardy based his many novels, eg The Mayor of Casterbridge, in Wessex - the Dorset countryside. An interesting read before bedtime!

Watersports tuition available include: windsurfing at Whitley Bay, Sandbanks; sailing at Rockley Watersports, Hamworthy, Poole; scuba diving off Swanage - and sea fishing trips from Poole Harbour.

Water-skiing, wakeboarding and parasurfing also take place in Poole harbour. Mountain biking is a popular activity in the nearby Purbeck Hills.

Poole has 41 miles of cycle network and the various routes cater for all ages and abilities of cyclists.

Brownsea Island, a National Trust property, can be accessed via regular pleasure boat from Poole Quay, where you can also find boats to neighbouring Swanage, Bournemouth and Sandbanks.

Also from Poole Port, regular ferries operate to Jersey, Guernsey and France. Day trips are available.

Third holiday in this lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

Tranquillity is a spotless, airy, spacious apartment this was our third visit and we will be going again. Quality bedding, plenty of plush thick towels, lovely super king bed everything you could want. We love the view from the balcony and just a short walk to the vibrant quay. Our grandchildren have stayed with us and there is park and playground a short walk away. Ruth and John are always lovely and helpful. A lovely area of Dorset with lots to do
