Why David King chose Purbeck

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.

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.

Great location; lovely property.

  • 5 of 5

The location of the property was absolutely superb in a quiet residential location! Only minutes walk from marina with lots of pubs, restaurants and shops near by but easy to drive out of Poole to visit other areas. The property was well maintained, clean and spacious. A great location in a lovely part of the world.

Late Summer Holiday with Grandkids

  • 4 of 5

The house was clean and tidy and satisfied all our needs. Having been coming to Poole and Dorset general area for over 50 years ( From a 5 year old child with my parents ) We have stayed all over the Baiter area for 25 years. Location to Quay, Town Centre and Poole Park is ideal with two young children. Being able to park the car within the rear of the property was good as well. Would come again.

Great holiday home in Poole

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic house in a fantastic location in Poole. We had a wonderful holiday, so much to do and see. The location really is ideal and the house was a great base as we explored Poole and the surround areas. I would recommend visiting Sandbanks beach for hot days (10 mins drive from the house), Lulworth Cove and for the colder days visit the Aqua Park in Poole. We will be back!

nice clean house in great location

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and had all the facilities we needed. Plenty of storage too. The location was perfect for our stay-lovely and quiet yet very close to Poole Park, the harbour and Poole itself. The area seemed very safe which was great when our 2 and a half year old wanted to ride her scooter.
