“Perfect Dog Friendly Retreat”
Reviewed 5 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

After much searching for a dog friendly rental in Dorset we found The Rockley Retreat of which we are very pleased that we did.
From reading previous reviews, to booking then arriving at the caravan, everything has been a pleasure and exceeded all expectations.
The caravan itself was more than expected on arrival beating any other I have stayed at in the past. From being very clean and clearly looked after to lovely furnishings throughout, we felt very at home and with the pleasure of being able to enjoy it all with our boy Vinnie (the dog) just made it that much better.
The location of the caravan was equally as perfect being only a few minutes walk to all the facilities of Rockey Park itself, but also out of reach from any unwanted noise to relax.
Our days was mainly spent walking with the dog around the many on site nature reserves and the very close by dog friendly beaches which is a must for all that visit.
Thanks very much for the pleasurable stay and we look forward to visiting again next year.
Tom

“Perfect Holiday, All You Could Want”
Reviewed 30 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

people found this review helpful

I am writing this review on the last evening of our one week holiday and we are feeling sad to leave! We have had such a fantastic time and the caravan has been superb. Where to start, it will be easier to go room by room so as to not forget any part. The two twin rooms are very spacious and the beds are of a good size and not the usual 'tiny' beds you get and are decorated with a personal touch. The main bedroom is good in size, decorated very lovely and actually to my personal taste, wardrobe has proper coat hangers, nice wooden ones and also found a Henry Hoover in the wardrobe which was brilliant, I always like to hoover regularly and good to have a Hoover and a decent one at that. The beds are all very comfortable and with good mattresses. Next is having a bathroom and also a separate toilet which is always good when there are more than 2 of you. All bedroom furnishings are nice, including extra touches such as throws and heart shaped cushions. Bathroom, clean and smelt fresh. The shower was excellent, and very powerful and surprising, but much appreciated for hair washing and showering. Mirror was perfect height too. Kitchen was very well equipped, kettle, microwave, toaster etc, everything you would want and like a home from home. Nice fitted kitchen and built in fridge freezer too. Plenty of cutlery and crockery with more than enough storage space for foods etc. nice to have a dining room table with 6 chairs rather than a cramped table and 'seating area'. Very comfy and cosy lounge, even has a pull out bed. Seating very comfortable and a nice size tv too with lots of channels to watch. We did have a go on the XBox, having never used one before, which was a nice touch, although we weren't very good at the games, but gave us something different to do. I like the fact there are no net curtains but wooden blinds, made it all feel cosy, homely and modern.

I stayed here with my husband and daughter (8) and we will definitely return here in 2016. Location is great and very quiet, but within walking distance of all the amenities too.

Very modern caravan, with lots of thought obviously having gone into making it special and not 'just another caravan'. I can't rate this caravan highly enough.

Thanks Ryan and Hollie, we have had a lovely time and your communication since booking has been spot on
Thanks

“Brilliant”
Reviewed 20 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Spent a week with Friends (4 adults, 2 children (2 years olds) and a Golden Retreiver !). All the reviews on trip advisors are spot on. Caravan had more than enough space, great location on the site, 2 mins to main entertainment area, and 5 minutes walk to cove/beach. If you looking for a base in Poole, look no further.

Holidayed in July with the family at Rockley Retreat, communication was bang on with Ryan and Hollie replying almost instantly with any enquiry.Arrived out of hours of reception and found security staff very helpful in obtaining the keys to the home.The home itself was exceptionally clean and spacious 3 bedrooms, 1 double and 2 twins with everything you needed, even an Xbox which was a god send on the odd day the weather was not too good,some lovely walks through the on site nature reserves,and down to the dog friendly beach.Location good as previous reviewers have mentioned,Poole harbour only 5 mins away,and Sandbanks just a little further a must.Thank you Ryan & Hollie for a very relaxing stay

“Perfect Base for a Family Holiday”
Reviewed 22 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

We've just returned from staying a week at Rockley Retreat. Communication with Ryan and Holly was fantastic from the start. The caravan is modern, spacious, extremely clean, and has everything you could need ~ especially an XBOX for a 14 and 16 year old Sons!
Caravan is perfectly sited not too far from the amenities, including shop, and pools, but also in a very quiet position on the park.
A beautiful short walk to the nature reserve in the evening, and a stroll down to the beach for a Costa!!
Poole Quay is just a short drive away, along with the town, and the best beach in Britain... SANDBANKS. We'll be returning!!
Many thanks again, Ryan and Hollie
