  • Branksome Retreat is a great place for large groups - a really lovely location and beautiful house, literally out of a catalogue.

  • The location of the house is perfect, lots of space. We throughly enjoyed our time. The house was beautiful. The communication from Harbour escapes was really good.

  • We stayed at this beautiful house for a family break over Easter and it was just incredible. We were a large family with multi generations, children and babies and everyone had the best time. The kids ran around the large garden and the swimming pool was heated so everyone had a dip. Checking in was easy and there was a welcome pack with wine and cookies - very thoughtful and gratefully received after a journey. The beach is just up the road so we had plenty to occupy us. The house itself is well equipped for everything we needed for a comfortable and luxurious stay, immaculately clean with plenty of toys for the kids, a well stocked kitchen with lots of seating and super comfortable beds. We really loved it and are making plans to return for the summer!!

  • We had an amazing stay for my mum’s 80th birthday with all the extended family. We just loved the house .. just the best space for us all to celebrate, unwind and relax .. every bit as good as the photos look

  • The Branksome retreat is a beautiful house situated in a lovely part of the country where there is plenty to do - we were able to walk down to the beach at Branksome Chine in just a few minutes. We have stayed in a few luxury holiday homes over the last few years and this was the best by a country mile. The living area was ideal for a large group- with so much space to spread out. There were plenty of facilities to keep the family entertained; super games room and gym , cinema room, play room! We also booked a hot tub as the swimming pool is shut for the winter months, which was great. Harbour escapes looked after everything during our stay and were incredibly responsive. We couldn’t recommend this house highly enough and will certainly be returning in the summer to take advantage of all the facilities the house has to offer!
