Sleeping up to 22 guests, Wimborne Thatch Villa and Pub is a dream setting for one of the most unique, epic group breaks you’re ever likely to take!

Representing a stylish fusion of holiday tastes, there’s something here for everyone to enjoy. Set on the Dorset and Hampshire border, the thatch-roofed villa is filled with historic character… yet there are plenty of cool, contemporary features to keep the kids (both big and little) happy, too.

Accommodation is centred around the villa’s magnificent courtyard, complete with sun loungers and sofas, a shimmering pool for lazy afternoon laps, and an eight-person jacuzzi for pre-dinner cocktails.

If you prefer unleashing your competitive spirit, the garden chalet not only boasts a sun terrace, but a games room with a professional pool table, dart board, and a selection of fun outdoor games to play in the enclosed garden – which has plenty of space for kids and dogs to run wild and free!

Here you’ll also discover a gas barbecue for sizzling sunset suppers all together, with comfy seating and dining areas dotted here, there, and everywhere.

Dining inside? No problem. Not only are there two (yes, two!) fully-equipped kitchens and a sun-dappled breakfast room, there’s also a barn area with a table seating all 22 guests – ideal for that celebratory banquet you’ve got planned.

Oh… and did we mention there’s even a fully-licensed on-site pub, complete with friendly staff, and exclusive to guests by request?
