House | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 9
Our property is a stylishly presented, detached family home situated in a popular quiet residential road. Having undergone a complete refurbishment during 2010, it has a beautiful new shaker style kitchen/diner and fresh, bright, calming decor throughout. It has one kingsize bedroom, three double bedrooms (including one en-suite) and another single bedroom, a family bathroom with bath and separate shower, a further downstairs toilet and a large lounge with patio doors opening out onto a south facing, enclosed and secluded garden, with lovely glass patio furniture.
The house is located a few minutes walk from a variety of restaurants, cafes, take-aways and local shops. There is a golf course a few minutes drive away and the house is also a stone's throw away from a recreational ground with some tennis courts, children's play area and cycling track. It is a short hop into central Bournemouth and its many visitor attractions, array of bustling shops and cosmopolitan bars & restaurants, and not forgetting the 7 mile stretch of award winning Blue Flag sandy beaches. The house is also ideally located if you want to pop off to visit the wider attractions of Dorset and Hampshire such as the New Forest National Park, Jurassic Coastline, various market towns and various children's activities.
In this Olympic / Jubilee Year, our house is ideally located if you wish to visit Weymouth for the sailing events (under 1 hour by train), and you can also reach London awithin 2 hours by train. Even if you don't have tickets to the ticketed events, you will be able to enjoy what will surely be the spectacle and wonderful atmosphere down here in the South and London during the Games / Jubilee.
The house would be ideal for families and groups, it is our previous family home, it is a relaxed and welcoming house and we loved living there.

|Further details indoors|
Whether you are returning from a day building sand castles on the beach or a full day sightseeing, we are sure you will find our house a home away from home. It has just been completely refurbished, it is bright and spacious, and yet at the same time cosy and welcoming.
The bedrooms are all a very good size and it can sleep up to 9 guests. We provide all bedlinen (sheets, pillow cases and duvet covers).
We can provide towels on request (£5 per person), although these are only for use in the house and you will need to bring your own beach towels.
|Further details outdoors|
There is off street parking for 3 cars and the road has no parking restrictions.
The garden can be accessed via the side gate at the side of the property and/or from the kitchen or lounge. The garden has a paved patio area, and is then laid to lawn with mature shrubs and trees and a rockery at the back . The garden is south facing so you get the sun all day and into the evening, and with surrounding fencing / walling it offers a great deal of seclusion.
The house will be most suited to families and groups.
We are strictly a no smoking house, although you are welcome to smoke in the garden.
If you need any help or ideas during your stay then we are at the end of a phone.
We would ask that you don't arrive before 4pm at the start of your holiday, and we would be grateful if you would vacate the house by 10.30 am at the end of your stay. Please treat the house as you would your own and leave it in the same good condition as when you arrive.
The West Country region
Bournemouth provides an ideal base from which to enjoy the attractions of Dorset & Hampshire with their stunning coastline and landscape of rolling countryside. And apparently we have a higher than average share of sunny days and warm weather down here, so hopefully lots of opportunity to get out and about.
The Isle of Purbeck and Jurrasic Coastline is truly special, lying within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and being designated as part of England's first natural World Heritage Site. From the South West Coastal Path you can enjoy spectacular views of Old Harry Rocks and the magnificent coastline at Kimmeridge, Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door. Lulworth Castle is also a great day out for the kids, especially with the jousting displays taking place during the summer. There are some fabulous places to visit inland too, including Corfe Castle and Tyneham.
In the other direction, the beautiful New Forest National Park is right on your doorstep, with its 3,000 or so ponies roaming free, (often into the villages!). There are plenty of walking, riding and cycling routes, with cosy pubs and friendly tearooms for that reviving pint or yummy cream tea afterwards.
There are some great visitor attractions such as Beaulieu Palace/National Motor Museum and Bucklars Hard, and a little further afield Portsmouth Historic Dockyard and the Spinnaker Tower are only about 1 and a half hours away by car.
There is a wealth of market towns across the region and an abundance of fayres, festivals and shows throughout the year. The New Forest Show which takes place near Brockenhurst during July and the Great Dorset Steam Fair which takes place over at Blandford in August are two of the main events and our house is well placed for both. The problem is fitting everything in!
Bournemouth is a wonderful destination for a holiday in the UK and there really is something for everyone, come rain or shine. Its really difficult to know where to start telling you about what's on offer. We will leave you a folder full of ideas and details of places to visit, fab restaurants and cafes, and some hidden gems you might not find on your own, together with some Ordnance Survey and other maps to help you explore. But here are a few of our favourite things:
Of course , we have to start with our main attraction, the 7 miles of wide sandy beaches, which are of the highest standard providing a haven for families with safe bathing, clean sand, kid's activites and lifeguard patrols. There are some great beach cafes, including those sprouting up down at Boscombe Pier where the new surf reef is well underway. The beach is definitely the place to be at the end of August to enjoy the Red Arrows and other aircraft taking part in the exciting 4 day Bournemouth Air Festival.
Sticking with the shoreline, there are water sports for all abilities. Poole Harbour is particularly good for windsurfing and kitesurfing, and its easy to hire boards and book lessons. We can also put you in touch with a local scuba diving shop/club, but if you don't want to get your feet wet at all, you can take various boat cruises from Poole Quay.
Brownsea Island in Poole Harbour is the venue for the summer Open Air Shakespeare Theatre and if its cultural events you enjoy, there is also the Christchurch open air theatre, various outdoor proms, (including at Meryick Park which is a 5 minute drive from the house), and an array of shows/concerts at the Bournemouth International Centre and Pavilion theatre, amongst others.
If you want to get active, we enjoy Moors Valley Country Park (20 minute drive on the A338), which covers 750 acres and is home to the 'Go Ape' high ropes adventure course for all levels of ability, or simply taking a packed lunch out on a beautiful walk through the New Forest.
The Bournemouth Eye (a hot air tethered balloon in the Lower Pleasure Gardens) gives you a birds eye view of the town/coast. Other stuff we think is great for kids is the Splashdown water park at Poole, the Oceanarium, Paultons Park and Alice in Wonderland adventure theme parks and fishing for harbour crabs at Mudeford Quay. There are 2 cinemas in town and a 10 screen Multiplex and Megabowl over at Tower Park in Poole.
Bournemouth centre is a buzzing, vibrant, place with many bars, restaurants and nightlife. If you prefer a more relaxed atmosphere, then there is an eclectic mix of restaurants and bars just 5 minutes walk round the corner from the house, or else we'd head 10 minutes drive down the road to Christchurch, to enjoy one of Gary Rhodes 2 restaurants, or the Captain's Club Hotel with its live jazz at lunchtimes and arguably the best riverside terrace in the area for al freso dining or drinks. If you are catering at home, then there is a huge Asda 5 minutes drive away, a wonderful Fish Stall at Mudeford selling every type of fresh fish you could want and a wealth of local food producers whose delicious produce can be found at the regular farmer's markets.
We love living in Bournemouth and we are sure you will love holidaying here.
