About Philip Morgan

The property is owned by Phil and Jackie. Jackie is employed full time by a charity in Bournemouth so the day to day running of both properties is done by Phil.

Phil was a Policeman in London and Dorset retiring in 2003.

They purchased the property in 2015 having lived most of their lives in Poole and Christchurch as they wanted to move to a more rural location.

Phil will be around a lot of the time to deal with any queries you may have but will be unobtrusive and has instructions to leave you alone as he does love to talk.

Philip Morgan purchased this bungalow in 2015

Why Philip Morgan chose Purbeck

Phil and Jackie purchased this property in 2015. They first looked over the property in the summer of 2014 and fell in love with it at first sight. The gardens are a delight to behold.

They both love Dorset and although well travelled they consider this area one of the most beautiful in the country. The Dorset countryside and coastline must be one of the best in England.

The property to let is joined to the owners property but has its own private access and driveway.

The previous owners use to let the property on Owners Direct and after careful consideration Phil and Jackie have decided to do the same.

Although very rural with its peace and quiet it is only a short drive to the towns of Bournemouth, Poole, Dorchester and Weymouth and there vibrant communities.

What makes this bungalow unique

Lilac Lea is a very comfortable large one bedroomed property. Situated in a rural area but just a short distance from the village of Bere Regis with the Wareham forest on its doorstep and the Purbeck Hills and South West Costal Path just a short drive away.

Deer are often seen in the fields opposite the property and birdlife is abundant.

2015 is the first year that a pair of House Martins have built their nest in the apex roof of Lilac lea. The local Robins will feed out of your hands when they get used to you.

A beach hut at Middle Beach, Studland is also available for your use during your stay at no extra cost.

Beautiful self contained bungalow with space for 1 well behaved dog
average rating of 4.84 based on 25 reviews

A comfortable, well positioned property, let down a little by a few small niggles.

  • 3 of 5

The property was surprisingly spacious and located in a pleasant and convenient rural location. It was adequately furnished and equipped and had an excellent TV. The property was let down a little by a windowless, dimly lit kitchen. A heated towel rail would be a useful addition. The owner was friendly, helpful and obliging. Unfortunately the very weak signal meant that WiFi was not really available to any useable degree.

However, overall the property was comfortable, well positioned and provided a very pleasant holiday experience.

Lilac Lea Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

Ideal location for touring this part of Dorset. We had a very enjoyable week

The bungalow was more spacious than the WEB pictures show. The bed was extremely comfortable.

Philip was most helpful. A nice touch was the Bacon, Eggs, Mushrooms, and Tomatoes "Welcome Pack"...very enjoyable.

Highly recommended. Hope to return ourselves.

This is a 5 star lovely bungalow. You couldn't ask for anything more. Philip the owner had put a complementary breakfast in the fridge which was very appreciated. The bungalow is very specious, spotlessly clean and very light. Lovely large bedroom with a very comfortable bed.

Can't recommend this holiday home enough.

Thank you both for letting us stay at your lovely home.

Hope to visit again.

This bungalow is in a lovely location. It is comfy, cosy and very well equipped. The owners have thought of everything you could need. We were greeted on arrival by Philip, the owner, who was a very helpful and kind host. The bungalow was very spacious and beautifully clean. We had a wonderful few days in this affordable and very nice bungalow.

Thank you Phil we hope to see you again!
