“Better than our house love coming here!”
Reviewed July 31, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This is the second time we've stayed here. Lovely house.very spacious for our large family. Would suit would small families too.my only criticism would be a few more kitchen essentials.eg oven trays. Casserole type dishes. As we dont eat out every night. Was a struggle to cook a meal for large family without essentials.also set of new knives a must.

Thank you for your kind feed-back. Our daughter and son-in-law who enjoy life in the kitchen are staying at Dalmeny next week and will review and replenish the kitchen equipment. There is a good set of kitchen knives although they probably require sharpening. This too will be checked next week.

This is our second visit and everything was perfect.
Plenty of places to visit, restaurants at which we could eat and a lovely sandy beach across the road and down a gentle slope.
Very clean with a good size and enclosed walled garden, safe for our two little dogs.
Appreciate the newly installed WiFi-this is important to us.
Thank you Maureen and Roger for a really pleasant and relaxing stay.

“Lovely house in an ideal location”
Reviewed June 28, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Generally very happy with our short holiday. Good accommodation, safe garden for our 2 small dogs and in an ideal location close to a beautiful beach.

We agree with other reviewers that some decoration and fittings, although adequate, were dated and basic.

We had a few relatively minor suggestions/complaints.

No sign of any recent garden maintenance, e.g. grass cutting, including uncleared dog mess from previous tenancy. Slug trails appeared overnight in kitchen and dining/lounge. Provision of WIFI would be appreciated by many tenants. No guest book or documented suggestions/instructions for our stay.

Our gardener should visit every two weeks but on each of his last two visits he could not reach the rear garden with his mower because holiday makers' car(s) were blocking the side entrance. This matter is under review and we hope to make arrangements to advise holiday makers in advance of the gardener's visits.
We do urge dog owners to taking proper responsibility for their pets "doings" and will closely monitor this problem.
Our son-in-law will try to arrange for WiFi in the near future.
The alledged slug has been reported to the contract cleaners.

“A great holiday base.”
Reviewed May 15, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The house was very nice with a lovely large garden and enough room for everyone to relax happily. It is on a quiet road only a stroll away from the sandy Southbourne beach and Hengistbury Head which we visited almost daily. Shops about a 15 minute walk away and good sea views from the front. We hope to return again in the future if available and our thanks to the owners of the property.

“Spacious house, close to beach, lovely garden”
Reviewed August 8, 2014 for a stay in June 2014
2
people found this review helpful

Three generations stayed here and it was spacious enough for everyone so that we didn't feel on top of each other.
The garden was fantastic, really big for our two year old to play in, sometimes she said she'd rather play in garden than go to the sandy beach near by!

The house is a fine base, dated, wasn't sparkly clean on our arrival, kitchen was fine but lacked some equipment.
Bring duvet covers, pillow cases, sheets and towels with you.
No wifi.
No DVD player, just an old VHS player.
We squeezed 3 cars onto the drive.
Great porch for buggys and sandy shoes.

The house is lovely with everything you could wish for. It is situated in a quiet road and is only yards away from the beautiful Southbourne sandy beach and a stroll to the wonderful Hengistbury Head.
We would definitely stay there again.

“Everything you need in a great location!”
Reviewed January 29, 2014 for a stay in September 2013

people found this review helpful

I stayed in September with my wife and daughter. The house is very comfortable and virtually everything has been thought. It's child friendly and the garden's lovely.
Its a minutes walk to the sandy beach which was pretty quiet while we were there. Its a short walk to the carpark to start the walk over Hengistbury head. Which is a really nice walk to the spit with the ridiculously expensive beach huts. You can always get the little train back to the car park if you get too tired for the return leg.
It's about half an hour walk to Christchurch were we had a great meal at Pinocchio's and went to the Thomas Tripp which has nice beer from Ringwood brewery.
The decor is not very modern but everything works well. The kitchen looks new and it's has everything you need to cook meals. Perfect house for a relaxing beach holiday with lots to do nearby. We would definitely book it again.
