The upstairs double bedroom also has superb views.

There is also a twin-bedded room.

About Mark & Penny Hockey

Knowing the area, we just loved the house and its views and despite living close, we thought this was a property to enjoy. We then decided to share it with others wanting to enjoy the location, and quickly found that we could not accommodate all our regular visitors who kept wanting to return. Hence we branched out again and have two other properties in Poole 82810 and 451628 on the homeaway website.

Mark & Penny Hockey purchased this house in 2003

Why Mark & Penny Hockey chose Purbeck

Location, location, location - views!!

What makes this house unique

Location, views, lots of activities close by without needing to get in the car, but also lots to visit in every direction with a car.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for letting us stay in your wonderful holiday home. We have all had a lovely time here and we hope you will have us again. The views are fantastic. We made great use of the balcony and what a treat the fireworks were.

Great location, amazing views, short distance to the town

  • 4 of 5

There needs to be a list of local Doctors, Dentists and vets. The shower is not powerful enough.

The family really enjoyed the holiday and would definitely stay again.

This is the second stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to post a review and we are very glad that you enjoyed your holiday with us again this time. The list of Doctors etc is being compiled as I type so will be in the information folder soon! The downstairs ensuite shower is indeed not a power shower - sorry for that. We also struggle a bit with the hard water obstructing the shower outflow but we will do all we can to enable it to be as good a flow as possible. Many thanks

Home from Home with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

First time we have stayed in this property, what a location for a holiday home. Everything was provided for your stay even down to walking sticks! The whole house was lovely very comfortable plenty of room for all of us and also having the benefit of having our dog with us. We felt very reluctant to leave it really was a home from home and we will most definitely book again.

Another wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed at this property a few times over the last 2 years and it now feels like our 2nd home. We cannot fault it so will return to it for years to come (just hope Penny and Mark havent any plans to sell it ! Lol) My in laws came with us this time and they loved it. The house is well equipped with 2 good size bedrooms both with very comfortable king size beds. The 3rd bedroom has 2 single beds in it which I use as a dressing room lol. The weather was kind to us this week so my mother in law and I enjoyed sitting in the back garden or on the balcony drinking a cuppa while watching the boats go by. My hubby and father in law made good use of SKY TV! The house is in a great location with superb views and you can get to many places within 30 minutes drive such as Sandbanks, Studland, Bournemouth, Christchurch, Swanage and Wareham. After having some lovely daily walks with our dog, its great to leave the car on the drive and take a leisurely walk into Poole in the evening to have a bite to eat. There are many dog friendly pubs that serve food but our favourite is The Crown Hotel where they have an excellent menu and the food is just fab. The staff are very friendly and always make a fuss of Molly, our cocker spaniel, and give her a treat. We were all very sad to leave but will be back again. Thanks again for a wonderful time. Elaine Maxfield
