  • "We've just returned from staying at Owl's Nest and it was just amazing."

    The property is perfect for a family with a dog (or without!) We were amazed at how big and spacious it was. The furnishings are really comfy and it's lovely and comfy. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils and everything you need to create some great meals. It's beautifully clean and having 2 bathrooms just makes it that bit easier. The house is in a lovely setting and location, just a few miles from Poole and the beach at Sandbanks. Chrissie, the owner is super helpful and welcoming. We'll definitely be coming back !!

    Hi Chloe, it was a real pleasure to have you staying in Owls Nest. So pleased you had such a lovely time. Look forward to you staying again in future. Best wishes, Chrissie Property Owner

The property

Owl’s Nest is a spacious, high end luxury lodge situated in the little village of Furzehill, close to the historic market town of Wimborne.

Boasting a contemporary interior with a host of well-appointed features and appliances, Owls Nest is a fantastic choice for families looking to stay close to the New Forest and the sandy beaches of Sandbanks and Purbeck Island.

The lodge is luxurious, modern and spacious with wrap around decking and views over its own large garden, which is very private, edged with mature trees and a fully fenced duck pond.

The open-plan living space is the social hub of the lodge, bursting with natural light and a charming sitting area with sofa, armchair, bookshelves and a TV with Netflix.

Behind lies a contemporary kitchen, kitted out with everything you will ever need, sure to inspire home-cooking.

Take a seat at the breakfast bar or prepare the dining table for a larger feast.

French doors lead out to the wrap around decking with furniture for alfresco dining and quality wooden sunbeds for when the weather is in your favour.

Opposite the dining area is a separate partitioned study area with large desk, chair, bookshelves & floor to ceiling window overlooking the garden, perfect for catching up on emails or losing yourself in a good book.

Across the internal hallway are the bedrooms, including a king-size and twin, each with dressing areas, wardrobe space and en-suite facilities.

There is also a handy utility room/cloakroom with washer/dryer, so don’t bother bringing your whole wardrobe!

The site is peaceful and wooded with shop, outdoor pool and children’s pool, tennis courts, sand volleyball court, football pitch, basketball court, outdoor table tennis, children's adventure playground and dog paddock where you can let your pooch off the lead.

Just a short drive away is the characterful town of Wimborne, home to a selection of independent shops, a supermarket, restaurants, cafés, bars and the Tivoli Theatre.

You are within reach of the Dorset AONB and Chanborne Chase AONB for a wealth of countryside hot spots, trails, nature reserves and a plethora of wildlife to spot, plus the beautiful New Forest is nearby with its herds of wild ponies.

If you fancy a day at the coast, Poole Harbour is within five miles and offers a variety of boat trips, or you can visit the wonderful sandy beaches of Sandbanks beach, Alum Chine beach, Poole beach, Bournemouth beach and Purbeck Island, all within a scenic car journey and ideal for walks in the salty air or trying out watersports, whilst retail therapy can be found in Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch.

Owl’s Nest is a luxury retreat for a family of four.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
