There’s a dining table in the kitchen, one in the open-plan dining area, and one on the patio, so you can take your pick as to where you eat (kids in the kitchen, adults in the garden?!).

  • What a lovely, homely and stylish place to stay. Really fabulously decorated with just about everything you could ever need. The little extras went over and above. If you have children you will be so pleased with the array of toys, child gates, kids' cutlery and crockery, even a popcorn making machine... not forgetting the outdoor sandpit and swings. We didn’t have small kids with us and the child-friendly touches were non-invasive if you are an adult-only group. Also a beautiful fish pond and we loved feeding the fish. Really lovely hosts and would recommend a visit to the beach hut.


  • The pandemic caused the extended family to postpone a couple of weeks in the Caribbean, opting for a place in Poole instead. You may ask where we’re going with this as there is no comparison. Well, the property is clean, classy and the amenities perfectly equipped for children, cooking and socialising. The kitchen is ideal for team work, this inspired some wonderful culinary delights. Our party had an age range of less than 1 year to 90, it turned out to be one of our most enjoyable group holidays ever, and so say all of us. Hot sunshine or rain, there was something for everyone. Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Turner for facilitating such a wonderful experience.


  • As a family of 5 with 3 young children, we can't say enough good things about our stay. Everything from bath toys to baby gates to wine for grown ups, nothing was forgotten. The house was so clean and there was so much delightful space inside and out; it's the ideal holiday setting. We made full use of the lovely beach hut as well as local recommendations for grazing platters (perfect for picnics) and fish 'n' chips. Thank you so much! We can't wait to come back.

  • A great family house with everything provided – perfect for a family with children as absolutely everything is catered for. We thought it was ideal for us all.

  • Had such a lovely stay at this beautiful home. Absolutely brilliant house for kids, so many toys and facilities for little ones, was so helpful! Beautiful bedrooms and garden. Lovely host who checked us in and set up the house perfectly with a lovely welcome pack! Only thing to note – make sure to contact the host in advance if you want to bring a dog as they charge a fee for this. Overall had a wonderful time!

  • Harbour Escapes were very responsive and the place was great. We had initially booked one of their larger properties that was accidentally overbooked, so they moved us to this property which was still able to comfortably accommodate our group of 3 couples and 3 children. The kids enjoyed the hot tub they provided onsite, and all the rooms were well decorated and cleaned to a high standard. Trying to think of a single con. Hosts were great, and I would happily book again.

    CLAIRE | MARCH 2022

  • This is a lovely house, which is ideally suited to an extended family group. The house itself was presented with very stylish furnishings and had everything that we needed during our stay. Our children especially enjoyed playing in the toy/games room and there was also plenty in the garden to keep them amused – especially feeding the fish, playing in the sandpit and the swings/slide. The hosts, Harbour Escapes, were extremely professional and very attentive from our initial enquiry through to departure, and nothing was too much bother for the team. We were celebrating a milestone birthday and Harbour Escapes even organised to have the house decorated, and for a private chef for an evening during our stay. The house is located on a lovely quiet crescent, just a short distance from the local beaches and also the local shops at Penn Hill, which include a couple of nice restaurants, bars, fish and chips, and best of all was the amazing café/bakery! We will be returning again soon! Thank you, Harbour Escapes, for making our stay so special.

    DEBI | MARCH 2022

  • This was a wonderful stay and beautiful area to visit. The residence is very close to the beaches and local shops. The team managing our stay went above and beyond for us and made our trip extra special. It was an amazing stay and would visit again!

    Roseanne | June 2022

  • One of the best Airbnb’s we’ve stayed in. So well set up for families, small children and adults! The house is beautiful, so well thought out and everything we could have possibly needed and more. It truly was home from home. The kids play room and garden were just a dream.

    Iona | July 2022

  • The house was amazing and the little extras that were provided were great (beach towels, shower gel, washing powder, wine, tea and coffee). The team set up a group messaging service for any queries we may have had, and they were very responsive and helpful to the few messages we sent. We would highly recommend Harbour Escapes
