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 please.

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 car (not bigger) 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.

About this location

The Dorset 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 clean apartment with everything needed for a very comfortable break."

Fantastic apartment, very clean and tidy. Perfect location for anyone visiting. Very helpful owners. And everything supplied in the apartment needed. We had a fantastic little half term break, with all the family, and this property really made it, thank you.

Thank you for writing your review and we are sure it will be very helpful to those looking to book. We welcome you back anytime and dont forget to remind us of your repeat booking discount. Once again thank you for taking the time to write.

"All you need for feeling at home and to relax"

The location was easy to find. Bus stop is near. Everthing was well organised: How to find the keys and the appartement. The appartement is clean, modern and very well equipped (free WiFi). It was warm ( we stayed there in february), the kitchen has all you need: Dishwasher, washingmachine, microwave, oven, toaster etc. The owner is very friendly and helps you when you have questions. The Farthings is near the beach and the shops. You need no bus or car for reaching them. We really appreciated that. We recommend this place without hesitations and would come back at any time.

So nice to have your review and thank you for taking the time to write it. As we have said before we wish we could review you as the apartment was spotless when we came in to clean and prepare for our next guests. We hope we will see you again if you visit Bournemouth at some time in the future.

"Absolutely wonderful apartment, clean, tidy and well equipped!"

I would just like to say my fellow cohort and I had a lovely experience staying at the Farthings. The flat was ideally situated, well maintained, clean and tidy and very warm. We wanted for nothing, the kitchen was well equipped and the owner had kindly put in items such as washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, and even foil. The owners went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay and I'd like to thank them very much. I would stay here again and will gladly recommend this flat to my friends and relatives!

A great pleasure to have you both. Many thanks for taking the time to write your review. We hope you will visit us and Bournemouth again soon. Dont forget your repeat discount if you do come and visit.

Good to hear from you with your kind and constructive comments. We appreciate the time you have taken to write your review. For those reading comments you can park outside to unload, its a double yellow line and in 12 years I have never seen a traffic warden (I will now I expect) We hope to see you again.

"Lovely clean spacious apartment"

The property is centrally located to enable easy access to town and beach amenities.The apartment was nice and spacious- good size bedrooms with comfortable double bed- lots of wardrobe and drawer space.all rooms were very clean- bathroom and shower room good size and powerful shower- nice fluffy towels- kitchen larger than expected-everything in there you need-lounge average size but big enough for us all- A great place to stay for family or friends-Although only one car parking space there is a very cheap car park across the road - can't really think of any fault with the property- only minor disappointment was not being able to check in till 4pm and having to check out at 10am- I would go back again and definitely recommend this place to friends -

So kind of you to take the time to write a review. We are so pleased you had a great time. Hope to see you all again sometime, dont leave it a whole year as we have great winter break rates.
