              “Wonderful view. Great location” The apartment was very clean and tidy. The owner Brian was there to meet us upon arrival. Very nice chap. Location was great just across the road from a lovely quiet beach and only a short drive into Bournemouth itself. Despite storm Aileen we still had a great week. Already planning our next holiday here.

                    “Lovely clean spacious apartment” The property is centrally located to enable easy access to town and beach amenities.The apartment was nice and spacious- good size bedrooms with comfortable double bed- lots of wardrobe and drawer space.all rooms were very clean- bathroom and shower room good size and powerful shower- nice fluffy towels- kitchen larger than expected-everything in there you need-lounge average size but big enough for us all- A great place to stay for family or friends-Although only one car parking space there is a very cheap car park across the road - can't really think of any fault with the property- only minor disappointment was not being able to check in till 4pm and having to check out at 10am- I would go back again and definitely recommend this place to friends -

                        “Farthing experience.” Thanks Stephen for a lovely stay, it was a pleasure to meet you. The apartment had everything we needed and was in an ideal position - five minutes to either the beach or shops. Loved Bournemouth and Farthings and WE WILL BE BACK. Thanks once again for everything. Anne Lloyd, Alan Lloyd and Stephen Lloyd. We would definitely recommend Farthings if you are looking for an apartment in Bournemouth.

                                                “Great town centre apartment” The apartment is right in the heart of Bournemouth but as its at the rear of the building it's surprisingly quite and peaceful., there was no noise at night and we slept really well in the comfy large bed. It has a balcony that over looks the central gardens. It has all the facilities you need for your holiday including sky tv, there's also a freeview tv in the bedroom. The owner was extremely helpful including picking us up from the rail station and showing us round and explaining everything. The seafront and pier are only 5 minutes walk. If you don't have a car the local buses go from just round the corner (we got a £15 7 day network pass for the yellow buses from their office) If you want to stay close to all the shops, pubs and eateries just book this apartment!

We never needed to use the car as there is an excellent bus service a few yards from the front door. There was secure parking for each flat. The flat is comfortable, spotlessly clean and very well equipped with plentiful crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils, as well as dishwasher, washer/dryer and fridge/freezer. We stayed during a very hot spell & found it to be easy to cool down. Check-in was simple, the owner was easy to contact & responded promptly. We loved the flat & hope to return soon.

Having never been to Bournemouth or Boscombe before, we were utterly amazed at the stunning location. Even in December we spent our days on the gorgeous beach flying kites or taking the train along the coast. The photos of the apartment don't do it justice- it's much bigger in real life. From the breath-taking victorian entrance hall to the unique, stylish apartment to the beautiful coastline- I would highly recommend a stay and we will be back soon.

                                                                                  Bournemouth is a large coastal resort town on the south coast of England. Bournemouth's seven miles of beach and exceptionally warm microclimate make it a favorite of U.K. travelers. There's something for everyone here, whether you're a watersports fanatic or just want to let your kids splash around in the calm waters. Over four million tourists flock to the town every year and it is true, the vibrant cosmopolitan town of Bournemouth has it all. Explore a vast variety of shops, restaurants a buzzing nightlife and endless countryside with beautiful award-winning gardens. Ancient castles and cathedrals punctuate the inland areas and the town hosts a lively mixture of locals, students and holiday-makers.

                                                                                  Things to do in Bournemouth

                                                                                  Bournemouth's sea is perfect for an early morning dip, surf lessons or body boarding. There is a vast array of watersports to choose from – even if you're a beginner. Europe's first artificial surf reef in Boscombe is attracting surfers from around the World. The wider Bournemouth area is relatively flat, meaning that cycling is enjoyable. Cycles can be rented locally.

                                                                                  The titular Bournemouth Beach is an easy walk from the town center, and sits in the middle of miles of sand. Take a stroll out onto central Bournemouth Pier for some fun activities such as the Zip Wire, and fine views along the coast in both directions. The Russell-Cotes Art Gallery & Museum contains one of the south coast's best collections of mainly Victorian art, furniture and memorabilia.

                                                                                  Bournemouth's stunning coastline is full of action all year round as it hosts fantastic events and festivals. In spring, Bournemouth Wheels Festival roars into action with displays and demonstrations featuring monster trucks, supercars and quad bike stunts. In August, it's the annual Bournemouth Air Festival – the biggest event of its kind in the world.

                                                                                  Top Destination reviews

Teresa is an excellent and attentive owner. The instructions provided with the keys detailing access and use of the the parking bollard were clear and concise. The apartment is well fitted out and had everything we needed. The apartment is spacious, light and well kept. The location is excellent being a short walk from the beach and local shops, the main shopping areas in Bournemouth and Castle Point being easily reached with a short drive. We would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment and will certainly look to stay here again on our next trip.see more
