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. Dorset is the principal setting of the novels of Thomas Hardy, who was born near Dorchester. The county has a long history of human settlement and some notable archaeology, including the hill forts of Maiden Castle and Hod Hill. Bournemouth lies in the heart of Dorset on the south coast.
The breathtaking Dorset coastline offers everything from picturesque harbours, long sandy beaches, dramatic cliff top formations, hidden coves and rock pools.
The Jurassic Coast is England's only natural World Heritage Site, and is a walker’s paradise. Of equal appeal to the walker is the New Forest, England's newest National Park, but steeped in history.
Poole Harbour is a stunning location for all types of watersport. The harbour and it's islands offer a haven for wildlife including the bird sanctuary on the world renowned Brownsea Island.
Bournemouth itself is a mecca for shopping and a centre of entertainment with theatres, cinemas, a casino and clubs, bars and restaurants. Bournemouth and Boscombe both have charming traditional piers and award winning gardens. One of the newest attractions in the area is the new artificial surf reef at Boscombe.
For families there is plenty on offer for kids of all ages, a couple of highlights being ‘Serendipity Sams’ playpark at Christchurch and Bournemouth Oceanarium.
Southbourne is on the eastern fringe of Bournemouth, away from the hustle and bustle of the city but with easy access to the centre by car or public transport. There are several cafes and restaurants very close to the property including the well known ‘Cafe Riva’, a short stroll away, located near the lift on the top. Even closer - is the Commodore hotel, with dining and outside seating for lovely sunsets. Also its just a short stoll to Southbourne Parade, with cafe's shops and bars and restuarants. Just a mile to the east Christchurch has a great choice of restaurants, centred around it's historic Priory church.
There are miles of sandy beaches from Hengistbury Head just to the east, all the way past Bournemouth to Sandbanks in the west, with a path / cycleway running all the way along the shorefront.

"Beautiful apartment with many extras"
We stayed in this apartment for a week at the end of July/ beginning of August 2014. The apartment was lovely with lots of extras included to ensure a comfortable stay. It is very close to lovely beaches, just across the road and down the path and shops are in walking distance. The apartment is in a beautiful area and perfect for families. The owner is very friendly and responds immediately to any questions. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again!!

I stayed in this accommodation for 3 nights with my wife and 2 young children. We really enjoyed our stay.
The property is extremely close to the beach, you literally come out, cross the road and walk down the zig zag path to the beach. It is also very close (5 min walk) to Seabourne Rd which has lots of shops, small supermarkets and restaurants). To get to Bournemouth Pier (where the aquarium is located), it's about a 45 min walk along the sea front or you can drive in 8 mins or so (about £10 in a taxi). Very convenient indeed.
The property is really tastefully decorated and is clean and in great condition. There are lots of nice little touches to make your stay comfortable (DVDs to watch, magazines and books to read, a gas BBQ in the garden) and the layout of the flat was good for my kids (no stairs and they could move freely and easily between rooms and into the garden). Anemities such as shower, cooker, microwave are all modern and work well. The sofa bed is also comfortable and there is plenty of bedding.
The owner returned our security deposit in full and quickly which is always much appreciated. A great place to stay…I am sure we will return one day.
