Our review of Beach View, Dorset

beach view


Beach View is a modern, airy, well presented property with a stunning sea front position. The property has four bedrooms and four bathrooms, accommodating a maximum of eight people. Many of the bedrooms share the amazing views, which can be enjoyed from a Juliet balcony in one case or an outdoor decked seating area in another. A summer holiday stay at peak time costs around £4800/week, but evidently this cost could be split between two families staying together.


Just a short walk from Beach View are miles upon miles of amazing golden sandy beaches; perfect summer holiday entertainment for children of all ages. The property also comes with free access to a nearby luxury child friendly hotel with heated indoor and outdoor swimming pools, jacuzzi, sauna and gym. We also really like that in June and July, you get free access to a fantastic beach hut throughout your stay.

Beach View has a lovely sea facing garden with decked area and garden furniture. Perfect for the kids to play safely during the day, and for the adults to unwind in the evening with a glass of wine. Two travel cots and two highchairs are available to borrow on request. The local pub/restaurant is just a short walk away from the cottage. Parents will enjoy the free welcome hamper awaiting your arrival including milk, tea, coffee, bread, butter, eggs, juice, cheese and wine.


What an amazing cottage!  The views here are just stunning. We think families looking for a summer holiday destination on the south coast will struggle to find anything with a better location than Beach View.
