About the property

Peaceful location 10 minutes drive from Sandbanks beach

The local park, beach and children's' play area is walking distance from the house. The blue flag beaches of Poole at Sandbanks and the National Trust beaches at Studland are a short drive away. Poole is a haven for watersports such as sailing, windsurfing, surfing, kitesurfing, waterskiing and wake boarding. Poole Harbour is ideal for birdwatchers of all ages. The apartment would suit couples or those looking for a family holiday or as a base for walking or cycling.

Why David King chose Poole

Dorset is a lovely county with so much to do and to see. Poole is very central with easy access to so many activities and places to see.

Some of our guests arrive by train which is just 15 minutes walk or a short taxi journey. They can explore the area by public transport with the main bus station just 10 minutes walk away.

Dorset provides such a range of fantastic attractions; you’ll never find yourself struggling to find things to do whatever you’re interested in. The variety of Dorset attractions is such it’s impossible to list them all.

Dorset boasts some of the best family attractions that you will find anywhere. Puff your way through the picturesque Purbeck hills on one of Swanage Railway’s classic steam trains. A memorable day out for young and old.

The kids will love a day out at Moors Valley Country Park, set in 1000 acres of parkland and woods, there is so much to explore. See if you’ve got a head for heights with the tree top walk ways and conquer the high wire adventure.

If you’re looking for some animal fun then we’ve got that covered! Head over to Farmer Palmers Farm Park for a whole day of farmyard fun in the beautiful Dorset countryside. Your little ones will be well and truly worn out after a day of demonstrations, animal handling, tractor rides, bouncing, play area…the list goes on!

If you’re looking for something a little different why not go trekking with a llama or walking with a donkey?? Have a day of Monkeying around at Monkey World, the world renowned ape rescue centre with hundreds of rescued and endangered apes and monkey.

If you prefer your day to go at a more relaxed pace Dorset still has plenty to interest you.

Dorset is home to some of the most fascinating and beautiful stately homes and gardens. Stroll around these magnificent homes and unearth their hidden histories and soak up the Dorset sunshine while discovering the wonderful gardens.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our lovely stay at this property"

This was one of the nicest holidays I have had. The weather was perfect, the accommodation was lovely, clean and ideally situated for everything we wanted. Short walk to Poole Quay which we did every evening. Friendly pubs on front. Themed evenings. Lovely sitting out in the garden having our morning coffee. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend to others. Thank you.

Easy to book, a stones throw from the water front, and within walking distance of the many bars and restaurants of Poole. Very nice, clean property, with all you could need for a trip away from home. Dorset Itself is a beautiful area, with lots of places to go and explore.



Was sad to leave at the end as you don't feel that you're living in a holiday home as it has that homely feel which makes you settle into the place very quickly. Everything is provided (bar towels) and is of a high standard.

Fantastic holiday home in a fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

It seemed unusual to be staying in a holiday home which is actually a little end of terrace house in the middle of a 1980's housing estate, BUT, don't be fooled! The house lacked for nothing and was both very clean and comfortable. The best part of the house though is It's location as it is only 5 minutes walk away from the sea and 10 - 15 mins from Poole Quay & the town centre.

There is a lot to do both in Poole and the surrounding area. We loved the house and I think we may well return next year!

Holiday at 28 Taverner Close @ Poole

  • 3 of 5

We had a lovely week (although went a tad quick). Absolutely lovely property, very central to everything. Bedding amazingly clean and fresh. All the little extras in there that you may forget which some places don't do. Owners were very helpful - we would definitely recommend and return again.

Owner's Response: Andrea I am so glad you had a great holiday and thank you for your written review of our house although I would like to understand why you gave us only a 3 star rating. We would look forward to your return.

Lovely modern property close to Poole front and main shops.

  • 5 of 5

Just arrived home after a week here. Had a fantastic stay. We are a party of 2a2c(5yrs). Excellent location for Poole front and shops and easy position to get to main road for short drive to Sandbanks (where we spent our beach time). First time in this area and will happily return as so much more to see. Took advantage of our new NT membership too. Owner responded quickly to any questions we had. Whole family loved our week here! Thank you!
