The West Country region
The south coast of England is renowned for having longer hours of sunshine and a warmer climate. You are in an ideal place to visit some great National Trust Properties, some truly fabulous beaches and the New Forest is close to Hand.
The property is situated in the middle of Bournemouth and Poole, both thriving tourist destinations with plenty to see and do for young and old alike! We have theatres, cinemas, great shopping and lots of wonderful places to eat, if you fancy fresh fish then head for Poole Quay where you can eat the catch of the day! Fancy a more European flair then head into Bournemouth or Christchurch where we have some fabulous restaurants, many child friendly!.
When you book with us we will forward you via email our welcome folder with great ideas on how to maximise your time here on the South Coast and many of our favourite attractions (which wont cost parents an arm and a leg!!)
Bournemouth is a cosmopolitan town and has 5 ½ miles of seafront and cliffs and is maintained to a high standard expected by visitors and residents.
The Seafront Operation Teams work around the clock to ensure that Bournemouth maintains it's 4 blue flags, 1 Quality Coast and 1 Green Tourism Business Scheme Silver award and has also introduced innovative schemes such as Europe’s first solar powered self compacting recycling bins.
2009 Bournemouth seafront will host the 2nd Bournemouth Air Festival (20th – 23rd August 09) – a not to be missed four day FREE spectacular event with air displays, on the ground action and superb evening entertainment.
Each Friday from 10pm July through to the end of August, a Firework display is hosted off Bournemouth Pier & Thursday Night there are Fireworks off Poole Quay.
If you are coming to Bournemouth for your summer holiday why not hire a Beach Hut for the week, to book this you will need to call Bournemouth Council Tel. no. 01202 451781 and ask for Beach Hire, the cost varies mid - high season during June the cost is normally around £115 per week. Included in the rate are 4 x Beach Chairs & pop up pop down table, a one ring cooking stove, a discounted lift pass & a discounted family land train ticket, it is really good value, if you went to the Beach each day and hired Beach chairs the cost for this is normally £4 per day each, great value, you would be able to leave all your possessions overnight in the Hut, you are not able to sleep there but it saves lugging buckets, spades, crocodiles or any other inflatables back and forth.
