This is the third time we have stayed here and it gets better every year. There was everything we needed for an extended stay and we found it clean and comfortable.

Explorer House is a really nice house in a good location for Poole and other attractions. The beds were very comfortable with ample cupboards. The Kitchen/Diner was family friendly. There were plenty of local shops and takeaways with very friendly shop-keepers.

Very good quality accommodation which allowed us to bring our dog with us. There was easy access to Poole and Bournemouth.
