Further details indoors

This cottage is ideal for weekend city breaks, family gatherings and traditional seaside bucket and spade adventures. The cottage is also available for extended hire and winter lets.

We have lovingly restored this cottage keeping original features and it is furnished to a very high standard.

Whether you are returning from a day at the beach, a tiring day shopping or from a sight seeing trip, this cottage will be very welcoming and we know you will feel right at home.

It can sleep 8 guests (using the 3 guest beds ) and we can arrange for highchairs, cots etc for small babies if required. There is off road parking for two small cars or one estate vehicle.

The cottage is only a 5 minute walk to the beach and a 10 minute walk into town. The nearest supermarket is Asda again a 10 minute walk, nearest cash machine is 5 minutes in the Lansdown so we are really very central here.

Further details outdoors

The property was built around the late 1800's and has a shingled off road parking to the front.

The rear of the property is created for low maintenance with a decked area immediately abutting the french doors from the kitchen. The remainder of the garden is laid to shingle and bound by timber fencing.

The back garden has outdoor lighting and outdoor sockets. We provide garden furniture and a BBQ

It is a south westernly garden and it receives the sun for the majority of the day and long into the evening.

The Beautiful town of Bournemouth is the gateway to a wealth of wonderful places on the South Coast of England . A short drive takes you to the New Forest, travel to the historic habour town of Poole, take a boat trip across to Brownsea island owned by the National Trust or visit the small hamlet of Christchurch. We have an abundance of wonderful memories for the children with the family adventure parks of Alice In Wonderland, and Paultons Park, the Aquarium, soft play centres, sandy beaches, Ice skating to name a few! Bournemouth also caters for those seeking culture with our museums, theatres and small intimate art galleries.

Bournemouth really does have something for everyone, especially families as we have so many great children's attractions. if you are adventurous we have Moors valley "Go Ape programme" where you can literally swing through the trees! The Moors Valley park is a great day out and not too expensive for us parents! We have delightful walks in the famous Bournemouth and Boscome Gardens, the Beautiful Compton Acres a gardeners delight. We have the Russell Coates Museum right on the cliff top giving panoramic views of the coastline. You can take boat trips along the coast and visit Swanage or even the Isle of Wight - the days out are endless! Or you could just settle down in front of a roaring fire with a good book and a bottle of wine! Visiting in the summer, relax in the private south westerly garden or light up the BBQ.

The West Country region

Bournemouth is a great base for exploring the South Coast of England, we have a mild climate in the winter months and generally have some of the hottest summer temperatures on the south coast. Bournemouth is such a diverse area and within 10 miles either side you can be in the open countryside or on a small desserted beach. We have plenty of summer fun in the traditional Bournemouth Pleasure gardens with daily activities for both young and old. Our theatres attract top names throughout the year and our restaurants and bars cater for a wide range of tastes and budgets. Shopping is excellent and transport links (if you dont have a car) are within walking distance. We guarentee you will enjoy your time here with us.


Bournemouth has such a diverse choice of settings with so many attractions to choose from it is hard to know where to start.

As parents ourselves we know how hard it is to keep the children entertained without burning a whole in your wallet so here are a few of our favourite attractions that won't cost you an arm and a leg!


5 minutes walk from the cottage is Bournemouth Beach and no one can resist a good old day at the beach. During the summer months there is a wide array of free activities for the children in the Kid Zone areas and in the pleasure gardens with numerous seafront attractions.

We have access to some of the most beautiful beaches on the south coast and if you prefer somewhere a little quieter why no take the 5 minute ferry crossing from Sandbanks (Millionaires Row) to Studland Bay which belongs to the national Trust.

MOORS VALLEY COUNTRY PARK 15 minute drive from the cottage on the A338

Moors Valley covers 750 acres in the Valley of the Moors River. At the heart of the park is the Visitor Centre, an 18th century timber barn, which houses Seasons Restaurant ,Just a few minutes walk from the Visitor Centre is the Adventure Play Area for older children and a special Castle and Sand Area for toddlers. From the play areas we cross the picnic area to the picturesque Moors Lake alongside which runs the narrow-gauge steam railway that will take you on a mile long journey through the park.

POOLE PARK - 20 minute drive from the cottage

Poole Park is one of only two Victorian Parks in the Borough of Poole, the park comprises of 109.5 acres of which 60 acres are water. So lots of boating fun, a train journey round the park, an ice skating ring, soft play centre, a great outside play park, loads of great trees to climb and lots of paths to cycle or roller skate on an ideal day out for families.

In the centre of town we have a wonderful aquarium, wacky warehouse soft play area, pottery painting cafe, build a bear workshop, children's museum, cinemas to name a few

We will leave you a folder full of ideas and places to visit

For couples travelling without children, we have numerous National Trust sites nearby, beautiful walks in the New Forest and surrounding countryside. Compton Acres a historic garden built in 1929 to give a few examples, again numerous ideas for trips out will be in our welcome folder.

"Fabulous property in a superb location!"

What a lovely property this is! We travelled with ourselves, our 1 year old, friends and their two year old. House had everything we all needed for a brilliant stay and plenty of room for two families. Louise couldn't have been more helpful in making sure we had everything we needed, including travel cot and high chair. Great location close to town centre and beach.

A group of us stayed in this property for 2 nights - we had a lovely time. The cottage is beautiful, location is great near to the beach and the town centre. On arrival the cottage was very clean and was stocked with everything we needed - we couldn't ask for more.
Thank you for a lovely stay
