‘The Harbour Retreat’ – Lower Parkstone, Poole

‘The Harbour Retreat’ is just that: A retreat. Not only does the delightful 5-bedroom house offer harbour glimpses from the master bedroom, a wonderful open-plan kitchen/diner and a lovely lounge with patio doors that open onto an outside dining area, it also has it’s very own ‘spa’ in the garden, with superb sundeck, hot tub and sauna. Let the relaxation commence.

This bright and spacious house will host your family for the perfect get-together to remember. It is extremely versatile and has a marvellous kitchen/dining room that adjoins to the main lounge, with patio doors that step down onto the elevated decking area. As well as the hot tub and sauna in the large garden, there are sunloungers and parasols, so you can really relax to the max. The four bedrooms are substantial in size and make terrific family suites. A gem of a property in every way!

The space

This delightful property provides an incredible setting for your stay, offering a versatile space for a family group. It has four sizeable bedrooms plus a further bunk bed room upstairs and the option to set up one of the downstairs rooms as a bedroom, using the sofa bed. The generous master bedroom has beautiful glimpses towards the harbour and the Purbeck Hills. Entering the property, you immediately appreciate the spacious, light rooms throughout. There are two lounges, one with a log burner so you can cosy up on cooler evenings. The open-plan kitchen/diner is super-sleek and wonderfully laid out as a sociable entertaining space, with seating for at least eight guests.

The southwest facing garden is large and private, with different levels suitable for whatever takes your fancy – lawn games, relaxing or entertaining. The decking, with a glass balustrade above the main garden, has a large dining table and chairs for eight guests. The extended terrace provides an area where you can relax on loungers with an ice-cold drink and soak up the sun, right next to the sunken hot tub with a lockable lid. Steps down to the second level lead to a bistro table where you can enjoy a morning coffee, and a four-person sauna to help you de-stress and unwind.


Guests can also benefit from the use of a beach hut at one of the local award-winning beaches – available upon request at an additional cost. Please enquire for further details.

  • We had a lovely week at this property. It was very clean, tidy, well equipped, homely and comfortable. It's in a great location for Bournemouth, Poole, the beach and all the attractions. We'd definitely return.

  • Our stay was fabulous for our parent's golden wedding anniversary celebration – the amenities and outdoor space allowed for a fabulous break away. The extra services offered, such as fine dining and the beach hut made a real difference to the overall holiday break away, certainly recommending Harbour Escapes to others.

  • This was a beautiful, spacious home. We were two families with 4 children ranging from 6 to 13. We were greeted and shown round by Emily who made sure we had everything we needed before leaving us to enjoy our stay. I would definitely book with these guys again.
