About Steve & Sue Brooks

I am Steve Brooks and I own a printing company called Allbrook printers in Hemel Hempstead. tel 07773075949. My wife Sue is retired. We have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. The bungalow is our holiday home. We go there as often as we can. We plan on retiring there eventually. We bought the bungalow 6 years ago and have spent a lot of time doing the place up including adding large extension, bedroom and bathroom upstairs and just done garage and new driveway and patio. New kitchen has been fitted in January 2016

Steve & Sue Brooks purchased this bungalow in 2010

Why Steve & Sue Brooks chose Dorset

It is lovely there with lots to do. It is only 15 minutes walk cutting through the Chewton woods to the sea which is sandy to the left of Cliffhanger resturant. You have lovely view of Isle of Wight from there. The new Forest is very close as well and there are lots of lovely walks to do around there. If you want major towns Bournemouth town centre is 8 miles away. There are lots of lovely golf courses here as well which I am enjoying trying out.

What makes this bungalow unique

There are 2 pubs about 500yds away which both offer good food if you dont want to cook.

In the garden you can be in the sun all day if you want as we have garden on 3 sides of bungalow. The garden is private with high hedge and fence surrounding it. We have a BBQ to use in summer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely rest at your beautiful bungalow. thank you very much.

The directions supplied were very good and much appriciated and we enjoyed our stay.



Remarkably spacious and roomy for a bungalow - the extensions are great additions.

Wonderful downstairs shower room - really nice with seemingly never ending hot water.

Very comfy beds - we all loved the foam mattresses and had great nights sleep

Fabulous location - ideal base for many of the local attractions, beaches and towns.

Very nice big TV in the lounge.



Just wanted to drop you a small note saying how much we enjoyed the house. It was clean and comfortable and everything we could think off was provided. I am sure we will be in contact with you next year to book again.

Wonderful weekend break

  • 5 of 5

Bungalow was much larger than we thought. The pictures don't do it justice. Ideal location very close to Highcliffe and Barton-on-sea. Spent weekend with elderly parent who has reduced mobility and found the bungalow very easy to get around.

Bungalow very well equipped and the kitchen/dining area was very spacious and lovely to have the patio doors open in the day when eating to look out onto the garden.

Visited Exbury gardens and Mudeford and spent time sitting outside at The cliff House Hotel and Beachcomber Café over looking the sea and Isle of Wight. Ate at Pebblebeach one evening - lovely food but on the pricier side.

Sad to leave today but will definitely be visiting again. Thank you for such a lovely stay.

Stay in Walford

Owner's Response: Heating does get turned off if no one in for a week. cleaner goes in on the day of your arrival so heating should be on when you arrive. TV sound seems fine. Deposit was slow being returned because we were in USA and couldn't do internet banking from there.

We had a great time at the property. It was very clean, comfortable and plenty large enough for our whole group of 5. The location was ideal for our walking holiday as it allowed us to get the bus to and from each section of our coastal walk.

Comfortable Family Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

Situated in a very handy town, local to a lot of amenities and an easy drive to other attractions as well. The bungalow itself was plenty big enough for the 7 of us and is well equipped and comfortable. It is a clean, tidy and well maintained property which suited our needs completely. We had a fantastic week and would definitely return in the future.
