Lake Yard is located in Poole Harbour, Dorset – England

Poole Harbour is one of the world’s largest natural harbours and its extensive sheltered waters provide a magnificent haven for recreational sailing and water sports.

The North and the South are of complete contrast. The North is very urban with yachtclubs, marinas, boatyards etc. The South consists of a nature reserve, creeks and shoals which are not easily accessible by road, making these secret waters exclusive to yachtsmen.
