Nestled on Poole’s picturesque, gloriously photogenic coastline, sits one of the most unique function spaces in the United Kingdom. The Branksome Dene Room is truly one of the south coast’s hidden gems.
Perfectly positioned on the coastline, the Branksome Dene Room is housed in a 1920s Art Deco pavilion-style chalet overlooking the sweeping bay. With panoramic views over to the Isle of Wight in the east and the Jurassic Coast’s Old Harry Rocks in the west, this is the perfect venue for your next event or family celebration. Whether you wish to use the space for personal, social gatherings or as an alternative professional workspace for a morning or evening, the Branksome Dene Room can cater for all your social requirements.
Built on the site of the old coastguard station, the Branksome Dene Room was originally a tea house and today remains evocative of the roaring twenties. The room is nestled in one of the area’s distinctive denes – a narrow, wooded ravine that’s unique to this stretch of the coast. Just metres from the seafront, your guests are merely steps away from golden, sandy beaches. Whether it’s a beautiful summer’s morning or a chilly and brisk winter’s afternoon, your day can only be improved relative to your distance to this glorious view and the luscious golden sandy beaches.
The Branksome Dene Room is equipped with 10 tables and 50 chairs and can hold up to 50 people, plus an extra 30 outside on the patio, which is ideal for summer BBQs. If you are a business professional or recruiter, perhaps you wish to host interviews in an unobtrusive, secluded environment where candidates may feel more at ease than in the traditionally busy and bustling office space. Hire the venue for the morning for your current team and allow them to express their ideas in a different environment, with access to a stunning view and the cool sea breeze to bring forward some inspiration and new, exciting ideas.
Maybe you wish to use the venue for a party to celebrate a personal achievement, or just a child’s Birthday. Either way you can guarantee your friends and family an experience that will last long in the memory, with plentiful space to display your best disco-dancing moves and to allow kids the space to have some fun in a completely different environment that is fun and safe to explore.
The Branksome Dene Room is even available for the most special day of your life if you wish for the backdrop to your wedding to be the glorious south-coast beaches and the surrounding area. Can you think of anywhere better to spend such a magical day?
A food preparation area (complete with power outlets), urn and storage cupboards are available, as well as thermostatically controlled heaters for winter bookings.
So, whether you’re planning your wedding, looking for a meeting space with a difference or searching for a tranquil setting to hold a yoga class, Branksome Dene Room provides a picture-perfect backdrop along the coast with the most.
There is a pay and display car park for up to 150 cars and public toilet facilities attached to the back of the building.
Hire Costs: daytime between £119 and £181 evening between £201 to £326.
