Bonham - family holiday home
House | 6 bedrooms | sleeps 12
Now accepting bookings for 2015.
Bonham is perfect for family holidays! We have enjoyed holidays in this house since 2006 and in 2010 decided to branch out into Holiday Lettings. 2015 will be our 6th year letting to family groups and the feedback received has been really positive. We only let the house during the 6 weeks of the school summer holidays to families. Sorry but it is not available at other times or to adult only groups.
The house is ideal for sharing by grandparents, parents and children. Equally we have rented to a friendship group consisting of 3 different families. It has all the charm of a large Victorian house with all the comfort of modern fittings and furniture. We were delighted to rent it to a family wedding party who married at the nearby Highcliff Castle.
The kitchen with its large island dining space is the heart of this home. Enormous cupboard space is provided, U.S style fridge freezer and all the kitchen equipment you will need for self catering. In addition to the lounge area, there are two double bedrooms downstairs together with a full size family bathroom.
Each bedroom is a double, one has an ensuite and there is a full size bathroom with thermostatic controlled shower, upstairs and downstairs.The comfortable sitting room can accommodate up to 12 adults and children.
The garden is well equiped with tables and seating for 12 on decking/patio. Young children enjoy the freedom of a spacious garden. There is beach/garden play equipment for your use. There are also several beach chairs and a windbreak available. Our closest beaches are at Durley, Alum and Branscombe Chines about 10 mins drive. There are excellent shops and eating places in our local high street: Wimborne Road. a large shopping centre at Castle Point and Bournemouth town centre is a short drive.
LOCATION - Bonham is located just north of Bournemouth's central area with easy access to town and beaches. Waterloo Road borders on Talbot Park and Winton neighbourhoods. Well positioned for Poole and Swanage to the west and Christchurch and the New Forest to the east.
Wimborne Road is the buzzy local high street with a diverse range of national and local shops, bars, cafés and restaurants. Middle Chine is a 10 minute drive on minor roads and free parking is usually available in West Overcliff Drive.
Frequent bus service along Wimborne and Alma Road. The town centre/pier is a pleasant walk through Meyrick Park and Central Gardens. Charminster and Westbourne are nearby with excellent family and adult dining

The West Country region
DORSET is famous for the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, which features landforms such as Lulworth Cove, the Isle of Portland, Chesil Beach and Durdle Door, as well as the holiday resorts of Bournemouth, Poole, Weymouth, Swanage, and Lyme Regis.
BOURNEMOUTH - If you are under the illusion that Bournemouth is one of those geriatric south-coast towns - all blue-rinse pensioners and bingo - then it might be time to re-visit and stay at Bonham. With a vibrant seafront and a growing community of cool restaurants, bars, clubs and boutique hotels, 21st century Bournemouth is Dorset's answer to Brighton. The award-winning beaches - on a seven-mile crescent bay are a big draw for families. A much-hyped artificial surf reef (next to Boscombe Pier) attracts a lively young crowd. The university and conference centre gives Bournemouth an international vibe. Although Bournemouth has the buzz of a city, it is a jigsaw collection of leafy urban villages. Along the banks of the tinkling River Bourne, there is over 2000 acres of green space.
Bournemouth's seafront curves around a wide sandy bay between the natural harbours of Poole and Christchurch. From its two jutting piers you get fabulous views across the bay to the chalk stacks of the Isle of Purbeck and the western tip of the Isle of Wight. Inland lies the beautiful New Forest.
From surfing and sailing to kayaking and skate-boarding, there is loads to do in outdoor Bournemouth. Indoors, the Bournemouth International Centre, the Pier Rock Climbing, the Pavilion Theatre and the O2 Academy offer a lively mix of entertainment. The Russell-Coates museum on West Cliff is well worth a visit. A busy programme of annual events includes an Air Festival, Fireworks, Classic Car displays.

"First class accommodation and having been twice would not consider staying anywhere else in Bournemouth"
This was our second visit to Bonham having first stayed there for our holiday in 2012. Once we decided that we were again going to holiday in Bournemouth during 2013 there was really only one consideration for accommodation - Bonham! As with last year we found the house to be absolutely brilliant and I cannot recommend it highly enough for large families or groups wishing to holiday in the area. It is extremely spacious (there were 10 people in our party) and very well equipped, The garden is excellent for children (ours had a fantastic time playing hide and seek! ) and the standard of decoration and cleanliness in the house is of the highest quality. The welcome and assistance offered by the owners Judy and Jim was excellent and the layout of the house and garden undoubtedly contributed to what was a great holiday. I would have absolutely no hesitation whatsoever in recommending this property to potential renters - we cannot wait to return!
