Look forward to a smooth weekend by the sea
Brownsea Island is National Trust owned and managed. The Island sits just off of Sandbanks, the 4th most expensive place to live in the world!!. A little foot ferry takes you from Sandbanks, or Poole Harbour, across to Brownsea Island. No cars are allowed as it is a nature reserve. Home to the red squirrel. These little creatures are sure hard to see but once you have had a glimpse they are irresistible and you are constantly scouring the tree lines for them. The island has a few little beaches to sit and enjoy a pic nic. The views are to die for. Just the most tranquil place to spend a day. Easy walking around, a small church and a farm area to look at. Peacocks around all the time.
Once you have explored, rested and feel the need for refreshment , the cafe is open for hot and cold food by the ferry area. There is also a small shop for gifts to bring back.
A perfect day out.

Massive Thank you
Thank you to all of our guests from October -December 2014 who left their losses change, bought pens and Olly Owls from us to help us raise money for the Wisdom Hospice in Rochester, Kent. Rosscourt has also been adding £1 per booking that was made in those 3 months
This is an establishment close to my heart as my Dad passed away here on 5th February 2007. The volunteers and staff were lovely, they gave comfort when needed. They were attentive to my Dad right to the end of his life. He spent 2 nights here being cared for 24/7.
The Friends of the Wisdom Hospice are constantly raising money through, quiz nights, fun runs, charity stall, sponsorships from supermarket etc. so we thought we would help.
We hope to raise another £150 by end of March 2015. Every booking made at the guest house since January 1st through to 31st March 2015, we will be donating £1 per booking again.

Christmas At Beaulieu
Palace House ,home to the Montagu family since 1538 , is a place of enchantment at Christmas time. The lower drawing room will have carol singing around the grand piano for everyone to enjoy. Visitors can talk to the characters from the Victorian Times discovering what life “upstairs, Downstairs ” was really like . Enjoy a hot glass of punch. The splendid victorian-style decorations around the house and the magnificent Christmas tree in the upper drawing room add to the flavour and charm of the season
Take a stroll around the gardens and see one of the largest outdoor Christmas tress in the New Forest, adorned with seasonal decorations.
In the National Motor Museum the Victorian theme continues as visitors can see what it was like to drive in those days. World of Top Gear, 100 years of motoring, Veteran London bus and a monorail add to the excitement.
Gift shops and a restaurant mean a full day is needed to enjoy this attraction.

The Wisdom Hospice
We are helping to raise money for The Wisdom Hospice in Rochester, Kent.
Thirty years ago, The Wisdom Hospice opened its doors to the adults of Medway and Swale. The Wisdom Hospice was born out of need; a need for palliative care in the community.
This need was recognised by, among others, Consultant surgeon Peter Jennings and Chief Nursing Officer Ann Denholm from Medways new and innovative Symptom Control Team.
Terminally ill ,cancer patient, Molly Wisdom, was under care. She was so impressed by the new service that she vowed to raise funds for a hospice.
” If you can keep me alive until June, I will have 2 coffee mornings for you and raise £50″ said Molly in 1977 to her doctors. She wildly exceeded her modest goal and in her final seven months of her life raised the first £2000 for The Wisdom Hospice, named in her memory.
On the 31st October 184 Her Majesty the Queen and the Duke of Edingburgh officially opened The Wisdom Hospice.
The team here looked after my Dad in his final days, after a year battling throat cancer. The staff were wonderful, caring and supportive to both my family and my dad. I have always supported The Wisdom Hospice but felt we could raise more money if we linked it to our bed and breakfast. We will pledge £1 for every booking we take until 31st December 2015. We are collecting loose change from our guests and selling pens, Olly Owls (their mascot) and key rings in the bed and breakfast.
Our goal is to raise £500 by 31st March 2015 then another £500 by the end of the year.
