  • Handsome 5 star 1930s detached house with some stunning original details

  • One acre of well-tended gardens for relaxing and playing
  • Located within walking distance of Canford Cliffs village centre
  • Situated in a prestigious area close to Sandbanks beach
Property code: 47267

This property enjoys a sought-after location in the village of Canford Cliffs close to the Sandbanks peninsula. The village beach with its golden sands, is a short walk away, allowing guests to enjoy a true seaside holiday. A little way down the beach is the Sandbanks peninsula itself, from where the chain ferry runs across to the picturesque Studland Bay, a wilder beach which is maintained by the National Trust. The two seaside towns of Poole and Bournemouth, are each situated within five miles of the property, both of which provide plenty for visitors to see and do, including a boat trip across to Brownsea Island, parks, shops, restaurants, miles of beaches, and an oceanarium.

On arrival at this handsome property, guests will immediately be able to see how much love and attention has been put into creating a truly five-star experience. The lounge is a wonderfully relaxing space, with comfortable sofas, a wood burner, TV/DVD, and beautiful lead-framed patio door which leads to the sunny conservatory. There will be no disagreements about what to watch on TV here, as just off from the lounge, there is a cosy snug room with its own Smart TV. The dining room provides the perfect space for formal meals and sociable dining, with its large dining table, flame-effect electric fire, and stained-glass window, whilst the kitchen has a breakfast bar which is a great place for more informal meals and snacks. As you would expect from a five-star property, the kitchen is well-equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine. Upstairs, there are four bedrooms. The first of these is a very spacious king-size room with relaxing arm chairs, and an en-suite shower room with a large walk-in shower and WC. The second bedroom is another generously-sized room with a super-king-size bed which can be made up as a twin room on request. The remaining two bedrooms are a pleasant twin and a restful single room which has a pull-out bed which may be used to accommodate an eighth guest on request. The main bathroom on the first floor is a rare example of an original Art Deco bathroom with a bath, and WC, whilst there are also separate WCs on both the first and ground floors.

The outside area to the property is just as impressive as the house itself, with one acre of grounds which include lawns, a number of terraced seating areas, woodlands, and, of course, the heated outdoor pool, which is open from the beginning of June to the end of August and is tended to on a regular basis and aim to maintain the temperature at a minimum of 25 degrees Celsius.

  • 4 bedrooms: 1 king-size, 1 super-king zip and link bed, which can be made up as a twin room on request, 1 twin, and 1 single with an additional pull-out bed (Sleeps 7+1)
  • Bathroom with bath and WC, en-suite shower room with shower and WC to the king-size room, and 2 separate WCs
  • TV/DVD, plus smart TV in the snug room
  • Wood burner (first basket of logs included)
  • Kitchen: oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine
  • Travel cot and highchair available
  • Outdoor heated pool available from 6 June 2023 - 2 September 2023 and 2 June 2024 - 31 August 2024 with the aim to maintain the temperature at a minimum of 25 degrees Celsius

Woodridings is a splendid house, in a highly desirable location, within easy walking distance of local shops, excellent gastro-pubs and a fine, sandy beach. Its magnificent garden and stunning swimming pool are perfect for families. Inside, the property is spotlessly clean, well-equipped and particularly spacious. And the children loved the facilitRead morey of the two separate televisions downstairs! The owner was most kind and helpful. Woodridings has so much to offer the most discerning guests. Hide

This was one of the best properties we've stayed in. The owner Tim met us when we arrived and made us feel welcome; he was a phone call away if we needed him during the holiday.

Beautiful home and garden, the pool is a wonderful bonus. Ideal location for a family holiday, but one doesnt have to move from the house to have a relaxing or active holiday as the garden is a wonderful site in which to sit or for cricket, football or hide and seek.

We had a lovely week at Woodridings. The house was exceptionally clean. Very spacious and everything we needed was available. The pool is fantastic and we used it at least twice a day. Fabulous location with lots to do nearby.

Brilliant holiday for my friends birthday weekend. Garden was beautiful and well maintained. Garden and house not really overlooked. Ample parking for many cars. Very spacious house. Would definitely recommend compared to similar priced houses in the area.
