    Really lovely house with everything you could need and more. Felt relaxed as soon as arrived, very homely. Great to have basics like tea bags, bin bags, loo rolls etc left for us plus a lovely cake and the kids loved the gingerbread men! Beach just down the road and shops short walk away. Would love to come again.

    A wonderful house. We especially enjoyed and appreciated the very well-stocked playroom with all sorts of toys & games for all ages of kids. The house was beautifully decorated and well-located for the beach. I would love to have a family get together there again some time in the future.

    Three generations of our family stayed at Stourcliffe House ranging from 2 years old to those of pensionable age. The house is very close to both local shops, pubs, the beach and a bus route to Bournemouth town centre. When the owners say they have a fully equipped playroom for children they mean just that with not only a good range of toys and books but also lots of film classics. A cake and two bottles of wine completed the welcome package. We would definitely recommend Stourcliffe House.

    Spacious, very clean & in a good position to get to all the facilities the area had to offer. Beaches superb. Very child friendly & every effort had been made to provide toys, games etc for children. The kitchen was to dream for & well equipped. The owners could'nt do enough to help if there was a problem . They deserve their property to be fully booked.

    Delightful house. We were a party of 10 spanning 3 generations. The house met all our needs. Very clean, spacious and homely. Wonderful playroom for the children. Good location walking distance to the beach. Everything within the house is good quality and working! Quite perfect for a holiday. Thanks to the owners who seem to have thought of everything.

    A very pleasant house lovingly restored and well-equipped by the owners. A kind gift of cake and wine welcomed us together with a gingerbread man for both of the children. The house is very suitable for families with the games room, garage with table tennis and plenty of beach equipment, and wifi for all the generations. Would definitely recommend for a family holiday, having the beach at the end of the road was also great (you have to try the chair lift if you have kids with you).

    Fantastic place for the family to unwind. The house is about 10 -15mins walk away with the shops not being to far at all. The house is clean and well looked after and definitely has a homely feel to it which we loved. The kitchen was very spacious and the utensils provided were plentiful and covered every cooking eventuality!! The house also had a fantastic playroom equipped with fully functional toys, board games, dvds and even a Fussball table! The kids loved it and we couldnt get them out of there! The bedrooms were clean and the beds were really comfy. Though İ never met the owners in person and communicated with them via email, they were fantastic ; very helpful, humble and considerate people who had a great attitude we cant thank them enough fo getting us out of a tight spot!! Their personality is all over the house and that is what gives the house its homely feel!
