Beach View is a beautifully presented, spacious, light and airy detached house occupying a stunning position directly on the sea front. Being a holiday cottage with style, it has breath-taking panoramic sea (and beach!) views, from Hengistbury Head across to Poole Bay.

The gentle washing of the sea can be heard from the house. A short walk takes you to the coastal zig zag path down to the glorious seven miles of golden beaches (voted Best Beach in the UK). A superb 34' long conservatory leads out to a garden with decked area.
