The West Country region
Take the opportunity to visit the beautiful county of Dorset with its breath-taking scenery and wonderful local history. This property sits close to Southbourne which boasts some of the finest beaches on the South Coast. Southbourne is a popular tourist location being situated between Boscombe and Christchurch it not only boasts beautiful sandy beaches but a wide choice of visitor attractions to suit young and old.
Bournemouth's popularity as a holiday resort started during Victorian times and has continued to grow so that it now attracts millions of visitors of all ages and nationalities every year. In recent times, Bournemouth has been extensively developed to incorporate casinos, clubs, pubs and an international conference centre. Bistros, bars and family friendly restaurants are much in evidence along the mainly traffic free promenade, and Bournemouth also has a new-look square, with palm trees and mosaics, giving the town a touch of continental chic.
Nestling in a sheltered, pine-fringed bay, Bournemouth is the perfect location for beach and activity holidays for all the family. Several of Bournemouth's beaches do not allow smoking, four miles of the sand are completely dog free and there are designated areas for watersports. Bournemouth's excellent leisure facilities also make it a firm favourite with sports enthusiasts, including those interested in watersports, fishing, horse riding and cycling.
Shopping and Nightlife
Bournemouth has a lively cosmopolitan street scene, with interesting shops and boutiques, and a variety of nightlife and theatres. So whether you like seeing West End shows, stand-up comedy or classical concerts, or dancing the night away at one of the numerous nightclubs, Bournemouth holidays have something for everyone.
There's a fully packed calendar of events all year round in Bournemouth, from spectacular fireworks displays to heritage fairs and classic car rallies. Bournemouth's Kids Family Fun Festival offers free entertainment for all ages during the summer school holidays plus there are Flowers by Candlelight on Wednesday evenings during August and fireworks every Friday night during the summer.
Bournemouth is made up of several distinct neighbourhoods, each with its own unique character: Alum Chine and Westbourne, the town centre, Boscombe and Southbourne.
Southbourne is a suburb of Bournemouth in Dorset. It was once known as Stourfield and lies between Boscombe and Christchurch at the eastern end of the borough. A major tourist feature in Southbourne is the Cliff Railway, running between the coastal road on the clifftop and the beach. The railway provides easy access to the Blue Flag beach at Southbourne and from there you can also reach the beaches at Boscombe and Bournemouth. At the eastern end of the beach is Hengistbury Head, a headland jutting out into the English Channel. Historically this was a site of major importance in the trading between Britain and Gaul. Settlements in the area date back even further, to the Stone Age when the headland would have overlooked the large river valley which would eventually become the English Channel. There are Bronze Age barrows on the hill as well as Iron Age fortifications in evidence. Today the head is a key tourist spot with country walks which can lead all over the head, some of which form part of the Bournemouth Coast Path. It is also home to a nature reserve.
Dorset is a county of great beauty, a land of contrast and breathtaking scenery. It is one of the maritime counties of southern England, fronting the English Channel which separates the United Kingdom from mainland Europe. Its coastline extends some 140 kilometres from Lyme Regis in the west to Christchurch in the east, and offers a selection of the finest sandy beaches to be found in the British Isles.
The award winning heritage coast begins in Poole Harbour and includes the Purbeck coastline which is the site of special nature reserves and countryside/marine parks. Travelling westwards, equally spectacular is the Chesil Bank, a barren pebbled beach, stretching 25 kilometres from Weymouth to Bridport. This, with the internationally famous Abbotsbury Swannery, is a photographer's paradise, and a sea captain's nightmare!
The region owes much of its charm to its villages - over 150 of them - and they are well worth exploring. Drive through Abbotsbury's long and winding main street and you will see sandstone cottages, tempting tea rooms and glimpse an old coaching inn. Other villages have quaint names like Toller Porcorum, Plush & Piddlehinton, each has its history, character and charm. Many - like Evershot, Nettlecombe or Cerne Abbas - lie hidden in quiet inland valleys. In Cerne Abbas, for instance, you'll find houses dating from the 15th century, the ruins of an Abbey and the famous Giant - a striking 180-foot high figure cut into the chalk downs overlooking the village.
Dorset features some excellent museums, with world leading centres at Bovington (The Tank Museum, telling the history of military vehicles), and the Russell Cotes Museum and Art Gallery in Bournemouth. Other museums include the Dorset County Museum in Dorchester, The Red House in Christchurch, the Royal Signals Museum at Blandford, and the award winning Brewers Quay in Weymouth. Many smaller towns have their own local museums.
Dorset has many country houses and other historic sites to visit. Kingston Lacy near Wimborne is run by the

"Lovely holiday home"
The Boardwalk 1 is a stylish, modern and ideally located groundfloor holiday home. The flat boasts a nicely equipped built-in kitchen and ample storage facilities. The sitting / dining area is bathed in sunlight thanks to the large bay window and the bedroom is spacious. The bathroom is also comparatively large and has a really nice shower. The flat was absolutely spotless when we got there, which is definitely a plus. The Dimensions team, which manages the development were very helpful and made a point of ensuring that check-in and check-out would take place exactly as scheduled.
The residential neighbourhood is very quiet, the beach is only a stone's throw away and nothing is easier than getting to the main shopping area in Boscombe.
With the addition of one sadly missing cafetiere, the flat would be absolutely perfect!
