    “Great Location”

    As a base for our Dorset holiday , you would have trouble beating this property, it's large and spacious but tired... This with a little bit of time and elbow grease would be a fantastic venue instead of a good one... We stayed here as a group of 4, drive way big enough for our 2 cars, this was a easy check in with a key safe, Once in and opened all the windows , ( the heating had been put on ) it didn't need to be as it was a cool 21 degrees... the lounge is a good size, just needed a clean, ...

    As a base for our Dorset holiday , you would have trouble beating this property, it's large and spacious but tired... This with a little bit of time and elbow grease would be a fantastic venue instead of a good one... We stayed here as a group of 4, drive way big enough for our 2 cars, this was a easy check in with a key safe, Once in and opened all the windows , ( the heating had been put on ) it didn't need to be as it was a cool 21 degrees... the lounge is a good size, just needed a clean, kitchen big ,again needed a clean, but dishwasher just wouldn't wash, we even went out and purchased salt and rinse aid but this didn't help. I think if your going to list as an amenity, it should do the job. So hand washing it was.. bedrooms big and with lots of storage, and clean bedding. Showers worked but very little water pressure just needs updating.. games room, now that is realy stretching the description, it's just a very small, child's size table and nothing else. Dining room just a bit cluttered. Good size garden and we enjoyed sitting in it with a cold beer, again just needs a bit of pruning and clearance. Now don't get me wrong even with having to clean the kitchen and looking past the untidyness, this is still a great property and we would book again, just be aware that not everything works as it should and you might have to clean on your arrival, ( depending on your standard's).

About the location

STURMINSTER MARSHALL

Wimborne Minster 5.5 miles; Blandford Forum 7miles; Poole 8 miles.

The east Dorset village of Sturminster Marshall, on the banks of the River Stour, is the ideal base for a holiday within easy driving distance of some of England’s finest beaches. The village boasts two pubs, a farm shop, golf course, village shop, including a pharmacy and Post Office, and a parish church. At the end of the village on the banks of the river stands White Mill, a former mill, now owned by the National Trust and open at weekends in the summer months. To get to the mill you have to cross the medieval arched White Mill Bridge, the oldest bridge in Dorset. You can sit here and picnic on the riverbank in one of the most beautiful corners of rural Dorset. An easy drive takes you to historic Wimborne Minster with its popular antique market, the Georgian town of Blandford Forum or magnificent Poole harbour where you can take one of the regular boat trips around the islands. Alternatively, enjoy the coastal route towards Swanage or to Weymouth. The village makes an interesting base from which to explore this beautiful area.
