  • “The house was amazing and overall we had a Fantastic time it was just a shame that some bits let it down.”

    ...

    The AGA was not on, it stated when we got there they don’t put on until end of Nov, this wasn’t stated on website. A 2 slice toaster for 10 people is not great Only 4 Robes was a shame Hoover wasn’t working Tap in double bedroom was loose (the one with bath) Water in the sink of the single room wouldn’t drain The main issue was the heating in the bedrooms wasn’t working, which wasn’t great when it was minus 2 one night, the heated towel rails worked in some bedrooms but two of them didn’t have a heated towel rail, so three bedrooms were extremely cold. We did try increasing the temperature via the thermostat but it didn’t work.

    - Mrs Brown, November 2019

    Thank you so much for all your lovely comments, it is heartening to receive so many positive reviews it really does mean the world to us Branksome Wood House is over 6000 sq ft and takes quite a lot to maintain, even changing light bulbs can take a considerable amount of time. We try really hard to make sure everything is in order for your arrival. Occasionally we get it wrong and when we do, we like to hear about it immediately and be given the opportunity to put it right. We now have a private rubbish collection, more drinking glasses, a 4 slice toaster, constant 28C heated pool, knife sharpener, increased lighting in the swimming pool area, ground floor heated to 23 and first floor heated to 22 in the autumn/winter months. So we really do listen and try where ever possible to act on your requests. We look forward to welcoming new guests and old to our much loved family home - Sykes owner relations

The property

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 5 miles away.

A special retreat for any occasion.
