This is a beautiful relaxing retreat. It is a guest house where you can rest and chill out all year round doing what you like best: sunbathing (when it's out), reading or simply enjoying the garden and the summer house. Very economically priced for those wishing a change of scene. It is situated midway between Bournemouth and Poole shopping centres on a bus route. The beach is a bracing, exhilarating walk away. This gives you access along the promenade to Bournemouth Pier or Poole Harbour with all its boat rides to Brownsea Island. There is also surfing or fishing if you prefer.
Alternatively you can just chill, and simply enjoy conversations with a motivational speaker.
