Excellent stay!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful week staying at the gatehouse with family, including grandparents and young children. My 2 year olds face lit up when he saw the cars and wooden train set and loved watching some new films on the sky +. The gatehouse had everything we required and Julie was extremely welcoming and helpful. Location was perfect for us! A short walk to the beach but we also walked to sandbanks and Bournemouth centre which were further afar. Thank you for a great place to stay.

Great for a family holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week at the Gatehouse. The property is well-equipped with everything you need, and is in a secure location behind a gated drive. It is very near the beach and within walking distance of the nearest town centre. Julie and her husband live just next door and are always happy to help. There is a selection of toys for kids to supplement your own whilst you stay there.

Would recommend for a family planning on staying in Bournemouth. We had a great week here!

Homely, modern accomodation in great location

  • 5 of 5

The property was modern, clean and well equipped. It had lots of great little touches like the boxes of toys left out for the children, great welcome pack and the lovely garden at the back

Julie was friendly and accommodating throughout our stay and before we arrived.

Location was brilliant with good beaches, towns and eateries all nearby.

Would definitely stay here again.

Had a fantastic time at the Gatehouse. Great location, lovely beach down the road. Sandbanks and B'mouth very close. Julie made herself available for any enquiries or problems, but there were none. Property fantastic. We had 4 adults and 4 children and all loved it. House was very well equipped and modern + clean.

The welcome pack on arrival had everything including a bottle of bubbly. Julie was more than welcoming and told us she could be contacted any time as she was next door.Our break was to celebrate our sons 30th but age ranged from 70 to 21 months. The house had everything any of us could have wanted. From state of the ark remote controlled windows to a large flat screen TV. Hot water at all times and a very safe garden to let children play in. There was also a BBQ . The property had plenty of parking for both cars and electric gates. I would rate this property with more than 5 stars !

Perfect Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We were really impressed with the quality of the accommodation and it was a lovely finishing touch that the owners left out some toys & games suitable for our three children. The location was perfect for us, with Branskome Chine beach suiting my mother and mother in law who have difficulty walking too far. We will definitely book here again for a family holiday. Thank you for making us feel so welcome!
