The Old Stables is a detached bungalow, situated in the beautiful countryside of Dorset, and with the quaint market town of Wimborne 4 miles away.

This delightful single storey detached bungalow, next to the owners’ home, has been thoughtfully furnished to provide a comfortable, well presented base to explore this popular area. The open plan living area has a comfortable leather corner suite and practical wood laminate flooring. There is plenty of wardrobe space in the bedroom, which includes a tiled en-suite shower room. Outside there is a lawned enclosed garden with sitting out area and barbecue. Across the lane is a direct path to miles of woodland walks, making this ideal for couples with a dog (or two small dogs). The local pub serving good food is only 400 yards away. There is so much to do in the area, Wimborne is 4 miles away, and is a quaint market town with a theatre, coffee houses, shops and inns. There are various festivals and fairs throughout the year too. Within easy driving distance are beaches (the closest being only 8 miles at Bournmouth or Poole) and also Sandbanks and Studland Bay. Also within easy reach are Poole Nature Reserve, Brownsea Island, and to the west, The Purbecks, Corfe Castle, and Jurassic Coastline. Moors Valley is a popular place to visit and is dog friendly, with scenic walks, and excellent wildlife spotting. There are many recreational activities, such as angling, orienterring, cycle hire, golf, Go-Ape Tree Top Adventure, Forest Segway, canoeing, and petanque. Avon Heath is nearby and is ideal for keen walkers. There are various fishing lakes (mainly carp) and golf courses in the area too. The New Forest National Park is easily accessible, and provides miles of scenic walks and a network of bridle paths and footpaths. There is a waterpark nearby and the charming town of Fordingbridge which has a host of shops, cafés and restaurants. Old Stable Lodge is convenient for road links to the cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury. Other attractions include Stonehenge, Marwell Zoo, Monkey World, Beaulieu Motor Museum, Bovington Tank Museum, New Forest Otter and Owl Park. Shop 1 mile, pub and restaurant 400 yards.

    A very comfortable cottage but the only disappointment was the local pub, 400 yards away had recently shut suddenly. We were very satisfied somhave already made another booking for next year.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my week at The Old Stables with my dog and found the location was good for visiting the coast, some National Trust places, Avon Heath Country Park and of course Wimborne and Poole. It was great to have the owners nextdoor and they were welcoming and helpful. The bungalow is well laid-out, well-equipped and comfortable and the enclosed garden was safe for my escapologist dog! I would certainly consider going back for another holiday there.

    An excellent week in good accommodation and admirable surroundings, would certainly book again if in that area.
