About Harbour View

Harbour View will have your friends and family green with envy over your holiday snaps. This holiday home nestled between Sandbanks, Poole and Bournemouth is set over four floors and boasts a contemporary style with superb views of Poole Harbour. It's in the quiet area of Lower Parkstone, and you will find bars, cafes, shops, pubs and restaurants 10 minutes walk away in Ashley Cross. With modern furnishings and high-quality finishes throughout, it sleeps seven people in three bedrooms with a layout that works well for families, extended families and friends. The owners use it for their own holidays, so you can rely on it being fully equipped for a relaxed, self-catering holiday.

Poole is a fantastic place for a fun holiday in any season. It's a busy harbour town with lots to see and do. Local attractions include Poole Quay, Poole Park, Upton Country Park, Compton Acres, Splashdown waterpark, and Poole's Lighthouse Centre for Arts. You can go surfing, windsurfing, kiteboarding, paddleboarding, kayaking, and sailing. Take a ferry trip to Brownsea Island, or a sightseeing boat tour. Even a drink in a harbour front bar or cafe is a treat when the view is this good.

The fun doesn't stop at Poole as the south coast is packed with activities and attractions that appeal to every age. Set up your deckchair on Sandbanks, just five minutes from Harbour View, or head to Studland Bay. Bournemouth is six miles east of Poole, with a fantastic pier, sandy beach, and traditional seaside entertainment. Take the kids to Monkey World, admire the gardens at National Trust Kingston Lacy, visit the spectacular Corfe Castle, ride the Swanage Steam train or get your adrenaline racing over the incredible collections at Beaulieu Motor Museum. The New Forest National Park is less than half an hour's drive from your holiday home, with heaths and forests connected by quaint villages and picturesque towns. You are also within easy reach of the Jurassic Coast UNESCO World Heritage Site, Studland Bay, Durdle Door, Lulworth Cove, and the Isle of Purbeck. Walking and cycling are always popular, whether along the coast or inland through the scenic Dorset countryside.

Harbour View is popular in all seasons and holiday bookings are available all year round. Many guests also choose to make the most of the quieter months between October and March where you can still visit all the fabulous attractions whilst also benefitting from lower rates and less crowds. The Christmas Market and light display in Bournemouth's Lower Gardens is highly recommended, as is the fabulous ice rink and festive pantomimes at the Bournemouth Pavilion.

The owners offer a discount to couples and for stays over 7 nights (this excludes school holidays).
