  • "Cottage was in a great location easy to find and close to the harbour and shops."

    Parking was good. The cottage was very clean and well maintained. Shower was easy to use and very hot. Good base for everything.

  • "Overall, a very positive experience - We've stayed here so often that it seems almost like a second home, and so much that we want to see or do is within easy walking distance."

    We have just a couple of very minor quibbles that should not distract from our overall satisfaction: 1. The shower caddy for holding soaps, etc. was inconvenient for shorter people. A small shelf would be preferable. 2. The towels apparently had been laundered with a strongly scented detergent. Could a more neutral alternative be found? 3. We were puzzled by the instructions to empty the lint filter on the washer/dryer, as we could not find one either on the machine itself, or in the instruction manual for it.

    Hello Edd, I am sorry to hear you had a problem. If you visit again sometime please do contact me direct. The soap caddy is completely removable and can be placed anywhere you need it, I feel a shelf might be a danger if someone slipped. The towels were new from M&S so I personally laundered them in conditioner for you, so my fault I won’t do that again. I hope you reached home safely after your journey across the pond and we look forward to seeing you again. Property Owner

  • "A very well equipped and comfortable house with all we could need."

    A place with its own parking is a bonus. Ideally situated being so close to all amenities. Plenty of flat level walking from the front door. We loved it.

  • "We have stayed in this house over many years for holidays before new ownership last year."

    Standards still as high, with some more modern additions ( new settee, dishwasher, and useful sensor light outside front door etc) Key box outside easy to use. Kept well informed by emails from Sykes cottages , and Sykes staff very friendly & efficient on phone calls to book. Will definitely try to book Quay cottage again for future holidays, as its always been our 'little home from home' and still feel so comfortable there under the new ownership. Perfectly positioned near to seafront, with flat walks to seafront, shops, bars & restaurants, Poole Park etc and can park the car in own driveway in front of house. Thanks for a lovely week. Julie & Dave Pearce

    How lovely, so good to hear you have enjoyed the house again. Thank you for a super review, we do appreciate it and hope you will come again. We will be with Sykes all next year and it's good to know they are so helpful on the phone. Sally & David Property Owner

  • "We have stayed at this cottage for our last several visits to Poole, as it fits our needs perfectly."

    The location is ideal, withing easy walking distance of many shops, restaurants, and pubs, as well as to public transport. It is difficult to find anything to criticise; however, it would have been nice to have had a change of bed linen mid-stay.

  • "We have stayed at this cottage often enough over the past several years for it to seem almost like a second home to us."

    We had an absolutely delightful time on this last visit. The location could hardly be better, and the size is perfect for two people. The only item that I would like to see added (if at all feasible) would be an exterior light at the front entrance, to be turned on if the occupant(s) expect to return after dark.

    Hello Ed, we have installed a light over the door especially for you ! It comes on after dark and has movement sensor. The weather is great today, Hope it holds out till you arrive and you have a beautiful time. Property Owner

    And spotlessly clean.and in a very good location.would have been nice to have larger bath towels

  • "We really enjoyed our stay."

    It was a very hot week and I was pleased the house did not get too hot. Would have been nice to have curtains in the bedrooms as I found the blinds flapped about a lot in the hot windy weather. (This is a minor point). Everything was very clean. The location is quiet but close to the front and the centre. If we come again we would bring some DVDs (we have got rather used to smart TV) again this is a minor point.

The property

Resting close to the harbour in Poole, Dorset is this inviting, mid-terrace cottage of Poole Quay Cottage.

A delightful setting for a family of four's coastal getaway, Poole Quay Cottage is within reach of ample seaside attractions and sights.

After parking in the private spot behind the property, make your way inside to find an attractive open-plan living space hosting all you need for your self-catering stay.

Sink back into the sofa or an armchair and switch on the TV to enjoy your favourite show; why not enjoy your favourite tipple, you're on holiday after all?

After unwinding for a bit, make your way over to the kitchen, where wooden units behold a range of integrated appliances, including a cooker as well as a washer/dryer!

Once the foodie of the group has prepared a mouthwatering delight, take it over to the wooden dining table and savour it as you discuss the day's events.

When sleep calls, head upstairs and catch your rest in one of the two charming bedrooms, a double and a twin.

A shower room completes the property's accommodation, where you can enjoy invigorating rinses in the double, glass enclosure.

The courtyard behind the property is the perfect space for alfresco dining, thanks to it being enclosed and featuring bistro furniture.

Embark on a short walk down to Poole Quay, where the intriguing attractions of the Poole Museum and RNLI Poole Lifeboat Museum await, alongside the delights of the Rapid Fisher Fishing Trips, South Coast Jet Ski Hire and the Poole Cycle Speedway.

After exploring the nearby sights, be sure to stop for something to eat at one of the waterside eateries, with the Italian restaurant of La Lupa and the seafood restaurant of the Poole Arms taking centre stage.

Spend some time in Sandbanks, a picture-postcard peninsula hosting the stunning sands of Cubs Beach and Sandbanks Beach, as well as sailing opportunities to Shell Bay.

Sandbanks is also home to Rick Stein's Restaurant, which boasts unspoilt views of the harbour and Brownsea Island; here you can sample a great selection of seafood dishes.

For a day out in a coastal resort, head to Bournemouth, where the wonders of Bournemouth beach, the Oceanarium and the renowned pier await.

For outdoor adventures, why not venture to the Moors Valley Country Park & Forest and Studland and Godlingston Heath National Nature Reserve?

Choose Poole Quay Cottage for a memorable break in Dorset.

The town of Poole is dominated by one of the world's biggest natural harbours, which features five pine clad islands and regular boat trips. The largest of these islands is Brownsea Island, where Baden Powell began the Scout Movement. To the west is the 'Isle of Purbeck', which offers visitors scenic countryside, dotted with quaint villages and stunning seascapes, plus Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door and Corfe Castle are well worth a visit. The local beaches at Sandbanks provide excellent facilities for all kinds of watersports. Alternatively, visit the neighbouring family friendly seaside resort of Bournemouth and within driving distance is the fascinating New Forest National Park. An excellent holiday destination at any time of the year.
