Poole Holiday Cottages

Known for its award- award-winning sandy beaches and being home to Europe's largest natural harbour, Poole makes for an unforgettable seaside getaway. Spend your days sandcastle-making and sunbathing on the world-famous Sandbanks Beach, or take in the views on the picturesque coastal paths nearby. Our pet-friendly and family-friendly Poole holiday cottages are the perfect base for exploring the area with your pooch, and the rest of Dorset too.

We've got holiday homes right by the sea, so you can enjoy waking up to blissful sea views each morning. Or stay in the heart of the action with cottages located in the town centre. Look out for holiday rentals with extras like hot tubs, swimming pools, and cinema rooms to add some luxury to your stay. And our friendly customer service team are always on hand to help you find the perfect Poole holiday cottage for your trip.

Poole Quay offers an eclectic mix of bars, restaurants, and shops as well as family-friendly attractions, including the Poole Museum and the Sea Music Sculpture. You're never too far from exploring Dorset's Jurassic Coast either. Take the boat trip from Poole and marvel at some of the area's most scenic spots, like Brownsea Island and the Old Harry Rocks. Top off your trip with a visit to Corfe Castle, one of Britain's most iconic ruins to have survived the English Civil War.
