Beautiful character terraced house in Poole's Historic Old Town



Updated: 08-Dec-2016
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 check with us on price as we charge slightly more than pro rata for this. (Unfortunately, the website only calculates pro rata)

Our character holiday home is located in a quiet square opposite the church of St James in Poole's Georgian Old Town. It is a minute away from Poole Quay and the harbour front with all its interest. Boats leave from nearby for Brownsea Island and harbour tours. Poole town is only 10 minutes walk away along the atmospheric old High Street with its restaurants and little shops. From Poole, the famous beaches of Sanbanks are a 15 minute drive. Bournemouth is also close and further afield the lovely town of Chritschurch and its historic Priory. The New Forest lies to the East, towns of Ringwood and Salisbury to the North and all the beautiful towns and villages of West Dorset to the West. Around the harbour lies the Isle of Purbeck and the Jurassic Coast with spectacular scenery and quiet coastal walks.
