“Peaceful retreat after a long day”
Reviewed August 5, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Situated in excellent proximity to the beaches, and great for exploring the rest of Dorset, the Birch Haven cottage is exactly what we were looking for for our mini break to the coast.

The cottage itself has a separate bathroom and separate kitchen with a very large open plan sleeping and living room area. The photos online doesn't quite do the size justice. Everything was spotless, neat and very clean - fully equipped with everything that you might need.

The cottage is located in a huge,huge garden. Beautiful and peaceful - which is exactly what you need after a long day of exploring or lazing at the beach.

The hosts, Deborah and Brian, are fantastic and immediately made us feel welcome without being imposing.

Thanks to them, we had a fantastic stay, and will definitely be back again.

“Just what we needed.”
Reviewed July 10, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We have just spent a very happy week at Birch Haven, Deborah and Brian made us feel so welcome and not simply on first meeting us. The accommodation and amenities suited us perfectly and the garden is so beautiful we wished we had more time to sit in it, although we did benefit from freshly picked raspberries and blueberries! However there is so much to see and do in Dorset we were out every day and there are many leaflets, maps and books in the apartment to whet the appetite. We were lucky with the weather but there are plenty of places to visit which aren't dependent on good weather. Although we enjoyed many varied activities, our favourite day was when we visited the Isle of Purbeck .After a busy day, it was lovely to come back to Birch Haven - a haven of peace and tranquility We never go back to the same place twice - there are so many places to explore - but in this case we're sure we'll make an exception!

“Very comfortable and a very warm welcome”

Deborah gave us a very warm welcome with an offer of tea and home made Dorset apple cake. The accommodation was ideal as it was two minutes away from our family. It had everything we needed and was located in a quite part of Dorset. It's an ideal place to get to all the tourist areas. My only negative comment would be the single beds, a king size bed would make the accommodation more a five star rating. We will be staying there again next year and look forward to seeing it in the summer and enjoying the beautiful gardens.

“Lovely location, lovely owners, lovely accomodation”
Reviewed October 23, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Lovely welcome when we arrived, lovely accomodation with a welcome chocolate cake!
Deborah should go on Bake off, she would win it easily, her chocolate cake and Dorset apple cake were delightful. A lovely peaceful location with delightful gardens to wander around.
We highly recommend and will be returning soon

We are a mature couple, from Noosa Queensland and we stayed at Birch Haven from 3th -11th. August. Peace and tranquility in rural Dorset, yet close to Wimborne and Poole Harbour and beaches. Run by a delightful couple, this self contained apartment is suitable for all ages.
