Previous Purbecks Holiday Lets guest, Nicola Styles shared her experience of her stay through a recommendation on Facebook: “We had such a lovely stay here. Our family took over every lodge and studio. This was great for our eight kids between us who had a private park for almost a week. The facilities are great, the pool in particular was wonderful for our young children because of the cover above, which in recent hot temperatures was peace of mind. All our group enjoyed the hot tub, and the gym, which was a great set up. Chris and the team made us feel very welcome, and was lovely to chat to early morning. Thank you for a great week. Have already recommended your lets.” Company: Purbeck Holiday Lets Contact: Chris Taylor Email: [email protected] Website: space.

The team behind Fox Harb’r Resort, and the Dol-as Spa, are some of the best in the business, with only highly qualified and professionally licenced therapists taken on and given the chance to treat guests. Something that sets this amazing organization apart is the belief that you do not come to Dol-as Spa as a 5-star therapist, rather you become one after training at their incredible facilities. While many have the skills, it’s at the Dol-as Spa that they have the chance to apply it to the highest possible standards. The last few years have been a challenge for the team, with the COVID-19 pandemic creating a clear need for guests who need the time and space to relax from the worries of the world.
