About Us

About us

We love a holiday. Who doesn’t? Getting away from it all, exploring new places, experiencing new things, building new memories. Born out of a passion to offer the best holiday experience possible, Harbour Escapes was established in 2020 with a vision to provide hand-picked, high-end properties in some of the most exclusive areas in Dorset and Hampshire, including Sandbanks, Poole Harbour and along the River Hamble. Not content to simply offer a roof over your head, like the attentive hosts we are, we also want to keep you entertained while on your sojourn. Enter Harbour Experiences, a range of activities we will personally arrange for you – from wild water sports to delectable dining, beach hut hire to bicycle tours.

We want you to squeeze every last drop of enjoyment out of your break, which is why we will bend over backwards to fulfil your every whim. Just ask. You want your own private chef? You got it! You want to sip champagne in a hot tub overlooking Old Harry Rocks? Sure! You want a marriage proposal written in the sky with the British Symphony Orchestra playing in the background? That may take some doing, but we’ll endeavour to deliver. We won’t just offer you first-class service with a smile; we’ll give you first-class service with an ear-to-ear beam.

Our philosophy

We want you to have the most enjoyable, most memorable, most
I-can’t-wait-to-return trip when staying in one of our unique properties. Which is why we don’t just hand the keys over and leave you to it. We are available 24-7 to answer all of your questions, organise whatever activities you may fancy doing and give you the best holiday you can possibly have. Think of us as your own private concierge, combining top-drawer service with aim-to-please hospitality. We believe in integrity, courtesy and using our imagination.

Our Story

Although 2020 was a year many people would rather forget, for us, it sparked inspiration. What began as a lightbulb moment soon grew into Harbour Escapes. With the global pandemic grinding the world to a halt, holiday goers had to start looking on their own doorsteps instead.

While the Amalfi Coast was out of reach, the coasts of the UK were beckoning. And, in our humble opinion, there’s no UK coast more stunning, more varied, more fun than the south coast of England, with Dorset and Hampshire being the jewels in the crown.

We established Harbour Escapes to provide high-end staycations with a difference. Because nobody should have to go without their soul-refreshing beach getaway.

Our Ethos

We understand that no two guests are the same. Everyone has their own expectations and desires for a holiday, and we will stop at nothing to not only meet these expectations and desires, but exceed them. We will tailor your break to your specific requirements, extending our warm hospitality to you every step of the way.
