What an excellent place to stay. So good, this was our third stay and we have already booked for 2022! The property is immaculate and was spotlessly clean. It is comfortable, beautifully furnished and relaxing to lounge in. Close to the beach and Westbourne yet secluded and quiet. Thank you to Ashley and Ashleigh for maintaining such exemplary standards.

We don’t usually holiday in the UK, but due to the current situation we are all in at the moment we have been taking long weekends away in property rentals for some R&R. And so far The Garden Cottage has been by far the best accommodation we have stayed in. The property is of a very high standard and all areas are spotlessly clean, with very good guidance for guests to help eliminate the Covid-19 risk around the cottage. The cottage is situated at the rear of Ashley & Ashleigh’s garden on a very quiet road, with off road parking. And is well situated for Bournemouth, Poole and the surrounding areas. This cottage is one of a handful of places l have stayed in and actually felt like I’m at home. It has everything you need comfortable beds etc etc. I can 100% recommend The Garden Cottage. And would definitely stay here again.

The garden cottage has an immediate wow factor with its open plan kitchen, living area with panoramic windows/doors opening onto a large patio bordering Branksome Chine and Branksome beach which is reached by a lovely 15 minute downhill walk This holiday property was especially ideal for my son, his wife and our 18 month granddaughter who loved all the space to explore and enjoy We would highly recommend this property

Fantastic garden cottage in perfect area, near beach and lots of places to eat. The cottage is of a very high standard and a relaxing place to stay. The host, Ashley, is pleasant and friendly. Lots to do nearby or you can just take it easy and do nothing. There is also Now tv which has lots of movies. Highly recommended, would love to come again.

We stayed at the Garden Cottage recently and could not fault it. The house is amazing - well designed space, lovely decor and furnishings and it is well equipped with everything you could need for a stay. The outside space is also lovely. The owners were very welcoming and accommodating. We will definitely be back!

I chanced upon this place and am very pleased I did. The accommodation is clean, comfortable and offers everything you need for a relaxed stay; perfect for a family of small group. The booking was quick and simple, the owners welcoming and the sun even came out for us. Thanks A & A. We'll be back. PS Great cookies!

This is a stylish, modern, open plan property equipped with top quality appliances, really comfy beds and a great patio with sun loungers. The added benefit is that it is in a great location and within walking distance to the fabulous beach. There are some some superb restaurants and beaches close by. Can't wait to return in the winter so that we can try out the log burner!
