About South Rising Guest House
Thanks! You'll receive an email as soon as the property answers your question.
South Rising Poole has been a guest house since 1979. We have updated the entrance hall, landing and breakfast room since purchasing the property at the end of last year 2015. We have now installed two more ensuite bathrooms making all of our 6 rooms ensuite. There is parking on site for 6 cars if everyone parks within the white lines and has an average size car but with more people having larger vehicles it can be a squeeze, at the weekend parking is free across the road in the bus lane and there is a car park next to the civic centre which is 5/10 mins walk away.
We have both lived in Dorset all our lives and our favourite places to live have always been by the coast. We did live in Shaftesbury for a while and when our daughters left home we used their rooms for guests, giving us an insight into bed and breakfast on a smaller scale, we enjoyed it very much and since then have been working towards owning and running a guest house by the coast.
The Poole area has a great deal to offer the tourist, immediately behind the guest house is the wonderful Poole Park with its boating lake, restaurant, swing parks, small train rides,the Arc cafe and play centre and the beautiful grounds to walk in and admire the surroundings. A ten minute walk and you are in the town centre with the shops, lighthouse theatre, restaurants, bus station and train station. The Quay and harbour are a 20 minute walk where you will find ferries to Brownsea Island, Wareham river and Swanage, also many bars, amusements and museum.
