The Farthings are a modern purpose built block of apartments. Each apartment is individually furnished to a high standard. The holiday atmosphere starts as the electric gates open and let you into the development.

A charming small block of four apartments in the very heart of Bournemouth, just a short walk to the beach or shops. The Farthings are charming and each of the apartments has their own charm and character, they are fitted out to a high standard with quality fittings and furnishings. You can almost fall out of bed onto the beach.

Just perfect for a quiet and peaceful break or longer stay with the family or adults sharing, no groups or noise allowed here.

If you have children you should be aware that the stairs exit from the central hallway to the ground floor entrance hall; however we have a stair gate. Upper Farthings is on the first floor and has its own front door, entrance hall and stairs to its landing/hallway. The master bedroom has a double bed and en suite bathroom. The second bedroom has a double bed, there is a separate shower off the Hall. We offer a sofa bed in the sitting room. Travel cot and High chair available upon request. Five will sleep in great comfort. We have one parking space for each apartment.

Bournemouth and Dorset are amazing, the coast is stunning with mile after mile of sandy beaches, bays and clear water. Further West is the Jurassic coast with caves, rocky cliffs and amazing coastal walks. Inland the countryside is varied with hills and pasture sprinkled with little villages and enticing market towns.

Bournemouth its self offers something for every one, coffee shops, international dinning and a delight around every corner. This is an amazing place to stay, enjoy and take away in your heart.

The West Country region

Bournemouth makes a wonderful base for exploring the South of England. Along the coast from High cliff in the East to Studland bay in the West are some of the most amazing beaches to be found anywhere with mile after mile of sand.

Further along the coast to the East is the Solent and the gem of the Isle of Wight, to the West is the magnificent Dorset coastline with its bays and coves. Inland the county has much to offer with the New Forest national park to the North and rolling hardy countryside to the West.

We have wonderful warm winters being on the coast and in the heat of the summer cooing sea breezes come in over the town blowing any clouds inland and keeping the tempratures near to perfect.


Wonderful seaside town with sandy beaches, a stunning coastline and a vibrant town. There are many good restaurants catering for all tastes and budgets as well as entertainment for all types of weather from rain to sun.

The apartment is within a few minuits walk of all amenities including the beach, shops, cinema and the Pier.

Witness the many shows and attractions along the coastline and in the town, Bournemouth has something for everyone 365 days a year.

"Excellent Apartment & Location"

Thank you we had a really great week at Bournemouth. The apartment was clean, with a good layout and was extremely well equipped. The addition of the stair gate removed any fear of being on the first floor. There was very little noise from adjoining apartments which was advantageous. The location meant we were within easy walking distance of the beach and Bournemouth park. The downside was some traffic noise from the nearby roundabout and deliveries to a nearby hotel but we really did not find it that intrusive. The secure allocated parking space was also very much appreciated. We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation and hope to visit the Farthings again soon.

How kind to take the time to write your review. We are so pleased you had a great time and look forward to seeing you again. Our summer weeks have been great but dont forget we offer good value short breaks during the spring, autumn and winter.

"Excellent Appartment. Excellent Value."

We had a really great week at Bournemouth. The appartment is clean and well equipped but the best thing is its central location. There is space for parking but we came by train. All the town attractions are nearby and there is a bus stop within 25 yards. We would definitely recommend the Farthings and hope to return soon.

Thank you very much for the review and your time writing it, so pleased you had a great week. Hope to see you again soon.

"Good central location with all modern home comforts..."

This apartment was home from home with everything you could need, including cooker, microwave, dishwasher, hair-dryer, iron,etc..It was literally 5 minutes walk down to the beach front, right by Bourn… More

We are delighted you have written a review and thank you for the time spent. We read every comment and act where we can to keep pace with what our valued clients need and want. We hope to see you again some time.

"It is the perfect place to stay in Bournemouth."

This two-bedroom flat had everything. It was clean and modern and everything from the cooker to the washing machine functioned perfectly. The beds were comfortable and the rooms spacious. There were also two bathrooms. It was handy for the beach and the town centre as well as the train and bus station. And despite being near a roundabout it was quiet enough for my young daughter and myself. What more could you want?

We thank you for taking the time to write your review as this helps us with our development of The Farthings. We hope to see you again soon.

"A gem in the heart of bournemouth"

A lovely clean flat - just like home from home. I would definitely stay here again. Close to all amenities and public transport - we discovered that a car is not really necessary - although if you do have one there is gated private parking.

From start to finish everything was clearly explained and executed with ease.

Thank you to Steve and Lya.

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We continue to develop and improve our apartments and are delighted you had a great time. We look forward to seeing you again.

"Apartment with space and good location"

An excellent apartment with plenty of space , clean and tidy. The location is great and gated parking a bonus.
The owner was on hand when we arrived to answer any queries and provide advice if needed. We particularly liked the flat layout and good size Kitchen and En Suite Bedroom.
Will certainly consider returning.

Thank you for your review, we do hope to see you again.

"Ticked all the boxes."

The huge snag in writing a favourable review is that it makes it so much more difficult to book another stay. Nevertheless honesty compels me to recommend to others.

I won't repeat the comments in the previous accurate reviews but will make the following additional comments:

a) The flat is well equipped - do make sure you find the blue binder with the inventory and full instructions for washer/drier, microwave heater, TV etc. I found it in the drawer under the TV in the living room.
b) Bus stops are 50 yards from property.
c) A selection of shops and pubs (including a Tesco metro) are 5 mins walk away - on the Holdenhurst Road (you'll find a street map in the living room).
d) Comprehensive instructions are sent once you've booked the property - including access arrangements.
e) Free wifi available.
f) Website photos comprehensive and accurate so haven't bothered uploading any.

The only minor downside for me was I took a bike - and unfortunately there isn't an obvious place to leave it overnight. Luckily I could leave it in my car but the rare other users of the accommodation with more than one bike might struggle!

It was a great pleasure to host you, look forward to seeing you again in Bournemouth.

"Fantastic accomodation in a superb central location."

Our stay at the Upper Farthings was absolutely brilliant. On arrival we were immediately impressed by the high levels of security, particularly the gated parking. On entering our apartment we found the accomodation to be very spacious, clean, tidy and well equipt. With two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a living/dining room, plus a full sized kitchen complete with washing machine and dishwasher, Upper Farthings had ample space for the six people in our party.

Although the Upper Farthings is near a busy roundabout we did not find road noise or traffic to be a problem during our stay and also had no disturbances from other guests within the other apartments. The location of Upper Farthings could not be any better. It is situated within a 5-10 minute walk of the beach and the town centre where beautiful gardens, restaurants, bars, clubs and shops can be found, as well as regular buses to other local coastal areas including Poole. It is also extremely close to the Pavillion and Bournemouth International Centre (BIC) where regular concerts and musicals are held. I would highly recommend visiting either of these during your stay. The Upper Farthings is also within walking distance of the vibrant and exciting nightlife of Bournemouth. With a variety of pubs, clubs and karaeoke bars, Bournemouth caters for all tastes. Cheap and reliable Taxis can however be booked with ease if you are too weak to brave walking the short distance in high heels as we were.

Both before and during our stay, as well as after, the owners of Upper Farthings were extremely helpful in ensuring we had a happy stay. The Upper Farthings was great value for money and I would highly recommend this accomodation to others. We would definitely stay here again.

Thankyou very much!

It was a pleasure to have you to stay.

"Very central and excellent value for money"

Easy to find in a very central location, electric gated car park with your own parking bay. The apartment is well appointed, with two bathrooms (one en-suite) and was excellent value for money, all rooms are of a good size. The owners Stephen & Lya could not be more helpful, friends came down to visit us mid-week (we had only booked for two people) and for a very nominal sum they arranged for fresh towels etc and managed to arrange an extra parking space, which given the number of yellow lines in Bournemouth was very much appreciated.
Both the pier and town are just a short walk away so it was nice to be able to leave the car knowing that it was secure. Nice tidy grounds, all in all it would be very difficult to fault!

It was a great pleasure to have you to stay. Thank you for your kind words.
