This beautiful, spacious one bedroom apartment, which has just been refurbished, is situated in Alum Chine, a distinct and popular holiday location situated between Bournemouth and Poole whilst still being a distinct suburb of Bournemouth. It has superb sandy beaches and a peaceful stroll through the exotic woodlands of the Chine brings you to Westbourne. Westbourne is an elegant district of Bournemouth located on the way to Poole and known affectionately as 'The Village'. Offering a mix of design specialists, beauty stores and delicious delis and restaurants.
Whilst Westbourne is busy, Alum Chine offers a more peaceful and relaxing holiday environment than in Bournemouth centre, as you would expect. Yet everything Bournemouth is famous for is not far away. The walk along the Promenade underneath the cliffs or along the beach to Bournemouth Pier is always pleasant. An alternative walk is via the zig-zag paths or the cliff lift, and to walk along the clifftop taking in the magnificent vista across Poole Bay. The land train runs along the Promenade, from close by the bus terminus at the foot of the Chine, to Bournemouth Pier and to Boscombe Pier beyond. Open top buses will take you into Bournemouth and Poole. Just a short walk along the Promenade in the direction of Poole is Branksome Chine which offers yet more sea, sand and sunshine.

The West Country region
Dorset is a very popular holiday destination all year round. It offers beautiful rolling countryside, dramatic scenery, charming market towns, character villages and miles of some of the finest sandy beaches in the UK.
Bournemouth lies to the east of the country and offers seven miles of blue flag beaches. It is near the market town of Christchurch with its 11th century Priory Church, ruined castle and Saxon mill, and the stunning medieval New Forest.
The area caters for diverse interests – the popular buzzing beach resort in Bournemouth with its vibrant nightlife; the gentler pursuits of walking, wildlife and bird-watching in the nature reserves and national parks, and along the 20 miles of Bournemouth Coast footpath; and active pursuits such as cycling, sailing, rowing, canoeing, windsurfing, kite-surfing and sea kayaking. Popular also for touring, Southampton, the Isle of Wight, Salisbury and Stonehenge are all within reasonable travelling distance.
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.
Alum Chine is a perfect holiday destination with it's sandy beaches and stunning cliff top views. It has a small shopping area with everything you need for an enjoyable holiday. With seven miles of golden sands and sparkling sea, the vibrant cosmopolitan town of Bournemouth has it all – a vast variety of shops, restaurants and holiday accommodation, buzzing night-life and endless countryside with beautiful award-winning gardens and water sports galore.
Bournemouth supplies the perfect base from which to explore the full pleasures of the area (Dorset & Hampshire), as it offers a mix of experiences to suit all tastes. All set in area that enjoys the UK's best weather and warmest temperatures. All set in a surprisingly compact area, making it the ideal place to visit for any length of time, from one week to two months. Situated only 2 ½ hrs drive (the time usually taken to drive to the airport and check in) from Birmingham and London, Bournemouth presents itself as a destination that is conveniently only a short drive for many, and brings with it more benefits than most European destinations.
Set in one of the most beautiful parts of southern England, Bournemouth and Poole are justly famous for their seven miles of golden sandy beaches, awarded Blue Flag status meaning they are internationally recognised to be of the highest standard, but there is so much more to the area than the seashore.
The area has a host of award-winning restaurants, bars, clubs, theatres, museums and cinemas, as well as countless attractions and places of interest. With its ponies, protected natural beauty and thousand years of history, the New Forest is Bournemouth's back yard and for those of you of a literary bent, Thomas Hardy country is just a few miles away (Bournemouth being Hardy's Sandbourne). Continuing the themes, the tranquillity of the nearby isle of Purbeck was the inspiration for Enid Blyton's Famous Five adventures. Add to that the National Trust sanctuary of Poole's Brownsea Island and the historic charms of Christchurch and its famous Priory and you have the perfect backdrop for your holiday - with accommodation from Bournecoast being the cherry on the cake.
