There are 3 double bedrooms, 3 wet rooms (2 en-suite), a lounge, kitchen, sun lounge and patio. There are no steps. The flat includes extensive facilities including
- A profiling bed
- 2 electrically operated beds
- 2 riser/recliner chairs

- Remote control TV's in the bedrooms/lounge
- Cable HD TV/broadband (including a wireless router)
- Blu-Ray DVD player
- Microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine
- Cot/high chair
- A beach hut is available for part of your stay at a Blue Flag award winning beach (which is very close to the flat) for no additional cost

Outside there is level access to the garden with a seating area providing views over the sea towards the Purbecks. There is also a large parking area with level access to the front door.

The facilities are family friendly although assistance dogs and children could not be outside unsupervised as the area is not gated to allow for easy access.

We are in an ideal location for exploring the holiday locations nearby. We are only a few minutes from the New Forest and close to the Purbecks. All the facilities of Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole are close at hand.

Children welcome from any age.
