The detail

Canford House is a grand, spacious home offering large groups an idyllic, deluxe retreat in the heart of the Dorset countryside. Rest and unwind in the large social spaces, relax on the lawn in the summer sunshine and enjoy a dip in the big, heated indoor swimming pool. Or, just spend your time wandering the stunning, extensive grounds whilst soaking in the peace and tranquility of nature.

Inside, this huge home has a wonderfully social kitchen, living and dining space. Get comfy at the kitchen island keeping your designated chef company whilst they prepare a delicious feast to be enjoyed on the huge rounded dining table. The kitchen itself is fantastically equipped with all the modern amenities you'll need to make meal prep a breeze. This fab space also features some comfy sofas that sit under a big skylight which floods the room with natural light. This open plan area is the ideal spot for the entire group to gather together in the evenings enjoying drinks and nibbles before dinner. In the summer months be sure to swing open the French doors and let some of that fresh country air inside.

If you want a more comfy space, the big lounge, with its stylish sofas and classic manor house design, offers up the perfect spot to sit with a glass of wine for a chat with your loved ones. Or, if the rest of the group is out, you can get comfy on a sofa with a good book and a cup of tea. The indoor cinema room will also be a hit with kids and adults alike, offering you the chance to enjoy a movie night like no other!

One of the absolute highlights of Canford House is the huge indoor swimming pool. This amazing space has big windows offering views of the grounds and comfy chairs dotted around the water's edge. There's also a table tennis table here, if you fancy a tournament. The pool itself is big enough for some bracing lengths in the morning, but you may just wish to float about and unwind in the water after a day out exploring the area.

When it comes to bed time the home has eight bedrooms that sleep 20 guests with ease. There's also the option to add an additional two beds in a ninth ground floor bedroom if needed, allowing the home to sleep up to 22 in total. The rooms are minimalist in design and are filled with yet more natural light thanks to big windows. The big comfy beds offer a great night's sleep and the mixture of double and twin rooms offers plenty of flexibility. There are also a number of bathrooms on offer, some of which feature a grand bath tubs where you can enjoy a relaxing soak before bed.

Stepping outside, the marvellous grounds of Canford House offer you and your group plenty of space to spread out and have fun. A huge lawned garden is ideal for kids, whilst the alfresco dining area offers an amazing spot for summertime meals.

When it comes to venturing out, Canford House is a short 20 minute drive from the beautiful beaches of Sandbanks. If you want to visit a traditional seaside town, with yet more lovely beaches and some delightful cafes, pubs and restaurants, then Bournemouth is also just a 30 minute drive. Other nearby attractions that offer a great day out for the whole family include Brownsea Island Nature Reserve, Poole Harbour, Lulworth Cove, Farmer Palmers Farm park, Swanage Railway, Bovington Tank Museum and Kingston Lacy House.
