    “We enjoyed our stay at Branksome Wood House.”

    On arrival there was a burglar alarm - which we weren't aware of and it took a while to switch off - but Sykes were really helpful and they said they would update the house information for new guests. It is in a great location within the woods and you can take a lovely walk down to the beach and within easy reach of Westbourne for restaurants. The house was comfortable.

    On arrival there was a burglar alarm - which we weren't aware of and it took a while to switch off - but Sykes were really helpful and they said they would update the house information for new guests. It is in a great location within the woods and you can take a lovely walk down to the beach and within easy reach of Westbourne for restaurants. The house was comfortable. The pool was heated but when tested was 24C to 26C rather than 28C so although the children made good use of the pool, the adults not so much! However, there was a hot tub which was very nice. The mattresses were quite soft for our liking and we changed rooms but they were also soft. There was extensive lighting throughout the house and beautiful gardens but lots of switches in not quite obvious places. The electrics tripped a few times too. The gardeners came mid week (a warning would have been good and they should have buzzed at the gates, not just let themselves in) and the pool maintenance people came early on the last morning (although we asked the to come back as the children wanted a final swim, again why not buzz to request entry). Overall would recommend.

The cottage

This architect-designed detached house is set on a private road within Poole, centred around one acre of gated gardens.

Comprising an indoor pool, hot tub, sauna, pizza oven, and fire pit, this is the perfect social environment to share with your loved ones.

The accommodation introduces a study on the ground floor, a beautiful sitting room with a woodburning stove and sliding doors too.

You will be equally impressed by the fabulous kitchen and its AGA cooker, all well-appointed for full height windows which welcome the natural light inside.

Gather in the dining room after the sun sets, an opportunity to discuss those up and coming adventures or reflect on the day's highlights so far.

Perfect for accommodating 10 guests, this one-of-a-kind house in itself creates a hotel experience, with five en-suite bedrooms.

Zip/link options provide all the flexibility a family could need, and the luxury furnishings have been thoughtfully presented, with exceptional attention to detail.

The hallway looks out onto the pool area, uplifted by the warmth of the woodburning stove creating the hub of this fabulous house with a bar area, changing room, sauna and separate wash room/utility.

Just a 15-minute walk leads to Branksome Chine which is a fantastic sandy beach on the edge of Sandbanks/Poole/Bournemouth Find 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 seascapes, plus Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door and Corfe Castle are well worth a visit.

The local beaches at Sandbanks boast facilities for all kinds of watersports.

If you fancy a spot of shopping head to Westbourne where you can visit the best Fish & Chips shop Chez Fred, The Plantation, The Cliff and the Rick Stein restaurant.

Petit Prince offers the best coffee and cakes for that light snack.

Alternatively, visit the neighbouring family friendly seaside resort of Bournemouth which is 1.8 miles or sandbanks which is 3 miles away.

A special retreat for any occasion.
