Overview

About the property

2 bedroom character house sleeps 4 + 2 in the heart of Old Town Poole

Our holiday home is a wonderful listed property full of character in a quiet old square with the Church at the centre. The house is beautifully furnished throughout with a fully fitted modernised kitchen and comfortable living/dining area on the ground floor. To the rear of the property is an enclosed courtyard with a small sitting area and also with room to park 1 or 2 cars (depending on sizes). There is a shed for storage.

The winding staircase leads up to the first floor double room with sashed windows and shutters overlooking St James Church. This bedroom has a light and modern fitted en-suite bathroom. Also on this floor is the family shower room, also modern and light. There is a study which has a sofa bed to allow 2 extra people to sleep if required.

The winding staircase leads on upstairs to the second floor double bedroom. From this bedroom a door leads onto a rooftop decked area - super for a quiet sit in the sunshine or evening drink.

Please note that bed linen is provided for the two double beds. We have provided a duvet, mattress protector and pillows for the sofa bed but you will need to bring linen for that. Personal towels are not provided.

We are very happy to consider short breaks in the low to mid season but please see below for prices. (Despite our best efforts with the website it is only able to calculate and present to you the pro rata rates - our apologies for this). Do call us if you have any questions.

3 nights - 75% of full weekly rate

4 nights - 80% of full weekly rate

Why Mark & Penny Hockey chose Purbeck

This is a beautiful old house in the Old Town of Poole which is full of character. It is so peaceful and yet a few minutes walk to the quay and harbourside.

Charming cottage

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed how close the house was to the quay and high street. The house was close to the bus and train links for day trips exploring Dorset. Penny and Mark were a pleasure to deal with.

Beautiful character cottage in a peaceful location.

  • 5 of 5

A lovely property - very quiet and peaceful but handy for shops, bars and other amenities. More spacious than we expected with lovely light rooms and very well equipped. Christmas dinner for 7 was easily managed! We even managed coffee on the roof terrace which I'm sure would have had a great deal of use at a different time of year.

Lovely cottage yeards from Poole Quay

  • 5 of 5

Warm, well equipped cottage just a minutes walk from Poole Quay. The cottage was clean and well equipped. Excellent communication with the owners. We easily parked an estate and a medium sized car in the yard.

Local visits to Monkey World and Bovington Tank Museum, Lulworth Cove - with a walk to Durdle Door if you don't mind a bit of a hill.

I would happily recommend this cottage to friends and family.

Perfect holiday home!

  • 5 of 5

We have been holidaying in Poole/Sandbanks for around 20 years, and this is by far the best accommodation that we have stayed in.

The location of the house is perfect. Within minutes of all the activities Poole Quay had to offer, yet still very quiet and peaceful.

The cottage is very well equipped and very comfortable. The lounge/dining/kitchen area downstairs is very homely and comfortable. The bedrooms are very comfortable, with the study/3rd bedroom very comfortable for our two children to share.

The roof terrace is lovely and peaceful on a warm summer evening, and the back garden/terrace is perfect for a BBQ.

We will definitely want to book again! Mark and Penny are lovely hosts and so considerate to take the time to pop by to ensure we were happy and enjoying our holiday!

Thank you so much for a lovely holiday.

Anna, Matthew, Noah and Darcey Poole; and Sue Pickering.

Fantastic house

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is in an excellent location to sight-see and is very close to the harbour. It was clean, tidy, comfortable and homely. Kitchen was well stocked with equipment and wifi was good - as was the off street parking. Communication with Penny was excellent and we would thoroughly recommend the cottage. We ate at a few local restaurants (Poole Arms, di Vincis and the Rope & Anchor - all very nice!). Good places to visit: Borwnsea, Studland, Sandbanks, Kingsdown Lacey, Greyhound Racing - top attraction was Segwaying at Upton Park! Thank you for a great break! :)
