Bonham is perfect for family holidays! We have enjoyed holidays in this house since 2006 and in 2010 decided to branch out into Holiday Lettings. 2015 will be our 6th year letting to family groups and the feedback received has been really positive. We only let the house during the 6 weeks of the school summer holidays to families. Sorry but it is not available at other times or to adult only groups.

The house is ideal for sharing by grandparents, parents and children. Equally we have rented to a friendship group consisting of 3 different families. It has all the charm of a large Victorian house with all the comfort of modern fittings and furniture. We were delighted to rent it to a family wedding party who married at the nearby Highcliff Castle.

The kitchen with its large island dining space is the heart of this home. Enormous cupboard space is provided, U.S style fridge freezer and all the kitchen equipment you will need for self catering. In addition to the lounge area, there are two double bedrooms downstairs together with a full size family bathroom.

Each bedroom is a double, one has an ensuite and there is a full size bathroom with thermostatic controlled shower, upstairs and downstairs.The comfortable sitting room can accommodate up to 12 adults and children.

The garden is well equiped with tables and seating for 12 on decking/patio. Young children enjoy the freedom of a spacious garden. There is beach/garden play equipment for your use. There are also several beach chairs and a windbreak available. Our closest beaches are at Durley, Alum and Branscombe Chines about 10 mins drive. There are excellent shops and eating places in our local high street: Wimborne Road. a large shopping centre at Castle Point and Bournemouth town centre is a short drive.

LOCATION - Bonham is located just north of Bournemouth's central area with easy access to town and beaches. Waterloo Road borders on Talbot Park and Winton neighbourhoods. Well positioned for Poole and Swanage to the west and Christchurch and the New Forest to the east.

Bournemouth

BOURNEMOUTH - If you are under the illusion that Bournemouth is one of those geriatric south-coast towns - all blue-rinse pensioners and bingo - then it might be time to re-visit and stay at Bonham. With a vibrant seafront and a growing community of cool restaurants, bars, clubs and boutique hotels, 21st century Bournemouth is Dorset's answer to Brighton. The award-winning beaches - on a seven-mile crescent bay are a big draw for families. A much-hyped artificial surf reef (next to Boscombe Pier) attracts a lively young crowd. The university and conference centre gives Bournemouth an international vibe. Although Bournemouth has the buzz of a city, it is a jigsaw collection of leafy urban villages. Along the banks of the tinkling River Bourne, there is over 2000 acres of green space.

Bournemouth's seafront curves around a wide sandy bay between the natural harbours of Poole and Christchurch. From its two jutting piers you get fabulous views across the bay to the chalk stacks of the Isle of Purbeck and the western tip of the Isle of Wight. Inland lies the beautiful New Forest.

From surfing and sailing to kayaking and skate-boarding, there is loads to do in outdoor Bournemouth. Indoors, the Bournemouth International Centre, the Pier Rock Climbing, the Pavilion Theatre and the O2 Academy offer a lively mix of entertainment. The Russell-Coates museum on West Cliff is well worth a visit. A busy programme of annual events includes an Air Festival, Fireworks, Classic Car displays.
