Overview

About the property

10 bedrooms, 2 kitchens, 7 bathrooms, large pool, jacuzzi, spacious garden, pub!

Our beautiful Thatch Cottage has 10 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms of which 5 are en-suite. It has a large, generous garden and borders protected woodland. The center-piece is the stunning, enclosed courtyard with plenty of seating, a large beautiful pool and an 8 person jacuzzi! The property has 2 fully equipped kitchens, a breakfast room, a barn area with dining for 22 people ideal for a celebration dinner. There are 2 wood burning stoves and the house has two lounge areas with large TV's with SKY Q and Xbox, which provides plenty of indoor entertainment. A fully equipped utility room with washing machine and dryer makes your holiday a pleasant experience.

We have a gorgeous garden chalet with a sun terrace that serves as a games room. The chalet has a professional 7 foot slate-bed pool table, darts and outdoor table tennis. We also provide outdoor games such as football, croquet and badminton for activities in the large, enclosed garden.

Please note the pool is open approximately May-September. The pool is heated by solar panels and air-source heat pump so the pool temperature is weather dependent. In July and August 2017 the temperature was a constant 28 C, but the average temperature drops as Autumn arrives. The Jacuzzi is hot all year.

In the enclosed courtyard you will find sofas, chairs and sun loungers. In the garden there are plenty of outdoor sitting and eating areas. The large, enclosed garden is an ideal playground for children and pets, and provides plenty of room for outdoor games. In the garden there is a beautiful fish pond with large mature Koi.

Kindly note that we have a minimum stay of 7 nights during the summer period. Shorter stays (minimum 3 nights) are possible from mid-October to mid-March, excluding the holiday season.

We have an on premise fully licenced pub serving local beer and other alcoholic beverages for the private use of our guests. Timo has a Personal Licence and will open and staff the pub by request. Please ask us for more details.

Being on the Dorset Hampshire border, you have access to lots of pub and restaurant possibilities. For fun family activities, Moors Valley Country Park and Avon Heath Country Park is less than 10 minutes drive away. The award winning Blue Flag beaches of Bournemouth and Poole are a 20 minutes drive away. The New Forest with charming Pubs and endless possibilities for walking, cycling and exploring is less than 10 minutes away by car! Follow the New Forest Taste Trails by bike, on foot or on hoof, sampling local ice creams, ploughman's lunches, cream teas and seafood along the way. Paultons Theme Park with Peppa Pig world and Lost Kingdom (Dinosaurs and rides) is also only 30 min away. The charming town of Salisbury and its medieval cathedral and the iconic prehistoric stone circle at Stonehenge is 20 miles away, making it perfect for a day trip!

About Susanna & Steven

We are Susanna and Steven and we are new owners of the Thatch Cottage. Timo, Steven’s son, runs the Thatch Cottage on a day-to-day basis.

Our family has worked in the self catering industry for over 35 years. We live only a 10 minutes drive away and we are onsite to welcome guests personally. We also supervise the changeovers and assist on any matters that may arise during your stay.

Why Susanna & Steven chose Wimborne

When we found the Thatch Cottage B&B in 2016 with its courtyard, heated pool, with many rooms, ensuite bathrooms and private on-premise pub, we knew we had found something special. We immediately fell in love with the place and decided to launch a large group and family holiday proposition. Over a year we painstakingly transformed the property to create a single large group holiday experience. Our vision was to create the perfect place for a get-to-gether with family and friends, blending a traditional English cottage with modern luxury. Central to the vision was a place where a large group of different ages could come together, providing rooms and space for everyone to be able to have their own space. We continue to invest in the property to continuously improve the holiday experience.

Please come and create new and wonderful memories at our stunning property!

What makes this cottage unique

The centre-piece of the property is the luxurious courtyard which provides a real Mediterranean look and feel. You can find a 14 meter heated pool, an 8 person Jacuzzi and plenty of seating areas. The enclosed courtyard provides utmost privacy and it is a real suntrap that offers a wonderful relaxing area throughout the year.

The "Barn" provides dining for the whole party of 22. It opens directly on to the pool and terrace area.

At the back of the property we have additional terraces in Italian porcelain, with views into the spacious and enclosed private garden, which backs onto Conservation Woodland of mature oaks. The garden provides plenty of space for outdoor games and activities for children and adults. We also have a pond with 14 residential Koi fish!

Unique to the self catering market we offer an English pub which is opened for guests of the Thatch Cottage upon request. Timo who runs the day to day operations will be happy to serve you refreshing beer or wine at the bar or at the outdoor tables.

We have also invested in a Antigua cabin for the garden which houses a professional pool table - we have located this near to the pub to deliver another new focal point for the family holiday.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Thatched Cottage was a perfect getaway for our annual MBA re-union. It was one of the best villas we have ever stayed in the UK so far and was “Generous” in every sense of the word.

Generous in Space – all of us (14 adults + 7 kids) fit in easily and we could have accommodated plenty more with ample parking space ;

Generous in Facilities – inviting pool (temperature regulated) ; enviable Jacuzzi (hot tub); ping pong table; 6-a side football ground ; fish pond ; Kinect and gaming zone ; lounge facility (theatre style) ; licensed bar with abundant supply of drinks at reasonable prices ; massive dining area to fit in 20+ group etc. etc. ;

and above all

Generous in Hospitality – we felt at home and were very well received and welcomed throughout our stay by Timo – the caretaker ; Gigi – the bartender cum chef who cooks delicious Italian dinner and the owners themselves who dropped in to check on us.

To sum it up, it was a brilliant getaway from the busy city life and we’d certainly book this property again. Needless to say, it’s a 5 star property and we’d highly recommend it !!

We were blessed with beautiful weather so the pool was just an amazing addition to the house!

  • 5 of 5

Before we even arrived Susanna was very helpful with any questions we had. Timo kindly met us at the house and gave us a tour before leaving us to settle in. The house and pool were beautiful and exactly what we needed for our large family holiday, with ages from 1yr-70yrs! We were incredibly lucky with beautiful weather, so made the most of the pool and hot tub area. There was plenty of space for all 19 of us to enjoy without feeling we were on top of each other. A couple of the rooms/bathrooms were a little dated but clean, spacious and served their purpose. The bbq was a great addition and we just loved the enormous dining table. We were even able to recreate a mid May Xmas day (we live around the country and it’s been a very long time since we had a Xmas day all together!). So many beautiful memories made, in a lovely location. I’d certainly recommend it and we plan to return in the future.

Excellent pl

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay. Very clean loads of space and the pool and jacuzzi were brilliant. Pool room was great just a shame about the flood water from the snow made it very muddy but this can't be helped.

Only little point would be to keep checking the heating and hot water as it can trip and adjust timings but it wasn't an issue.

Fantastic venue for a family celebration, all ages catered for!

  • 5 of 5

20 of us had a lovely stay at the cottage arriving late Wednesday afternoon to be greeted by Timo who showed us around the property and explained the various workings of things such as the swimming pool cover, the hot tub etc etc. We stayed until mid afternoon Sunday.

The cottage was immaculately clean, has facilities suitable for all ages, and plentiful parking space for up to a dozen cars! (we had 7 cars). We felt that the swimming pool was probably warmer than most external pools at Hotels abroad. The hot tub was very hot and relaxing.

We were fortunate that since we booked the holiday the owners had built a summer house sized outbuilding which has a full sized slate pool table in it along with a dartboard.The competition amongst us was intense!

We really couldn`t fault the cottage at all.

Brilliant venue for a celebrating my husband's 50th.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay. The cottage was perfect for our group , ages from 6 up to 56 ! the teenagers had a ball in the pool, hot tub and games room. There was plenty of space and we never felt crowded. The dinning kitchen is just perfect - we managed 25 round the table for a huge roast dinner on Easter Sunday ! The garden was ideal for an Easter egg hunt. Timo is delightful and nothing is too much trouble. We will be booking again.
