Family Friendly Stays

It can be difficult to find a truly family-friendly hotel sometimes, but here at The Canford, we welcome children with open arms. With lots of fun local family activities, such as Brownsea Island, a child friendly environment within the pub and an additional bed for those aged 2-14, The Canford is the ideal base.

Children are charged at £15 per child per night and we can accept a maximum of 2 children per room where available.

Dog Friendly Stays

Our dog-friendly bedrooms include their own doggy bed & bowl to make your four-legged friend feel right at home.

You’ll feel right at home too with your own Hypnos mattress to give you the perfect night’s sleep and Bramley bath and soap products to provide you with that extra sense of luxury.

Whether you’re staying with us to explore Sandbanks or to have a getaway with the family and your dog, you won’t be short of things to do.
