Description

Bonham is perfect for family holidays ! Sorry but we are now fully booked for 2016. Please consider us for 2017.

We have enjoyed holidays in this house since 2006 and in 2010 decided to branch out into Holiday Lettings. 2017 will be our 8th year letting to family groups and the feedback received has been really positive.

We only let the house during the 8 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. For this reason the house is suitable for NON SMOKERS only. 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 welcome an Italian family with daughters attending a local language school last summer.

The kitchen with its large island dining space is the heart of this home.

Location description from owner

The England region

DORSET is famous for the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, which features landforms such as Lulworth Cove, the Isle of Portland, Chesil Beach and Durdle Door, as well as the holiday resorts of Bournemouth, Poole, Weymouth, Swanage, and Lyme Regis.

Bournemouth

BOURNEMOUTH - enjoys 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. Boscombe beach attracts a lively young surfing 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.

“First class accommodation and having been twice would not consider staying anywhere else in Bournemouth”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2013

This was our second visit to Bonham having first stayed there for our holiday in 2012. Once we decided that we were again going to holiday in Bournemouth during 2013 there was really only one consideration for accommodation - Bonham! As with last year we found the house to be absolutely brilliant and I cannot recommend it highly enough for large families or groups wishing to holiday in the area. It is extremely spacious (there were 10 people in our party) and very well equipped, The garden is excellent for children (ours had a fantastic time playing hide and seek! ) and the standard of decoration and cleanliness in the house is of the highest quality. The welcome and assistance offered by the owners Judy and Jim was excellent and the layout of the house and garden undoubtedly contributed to what was a great holiday. I would have absolutely no hesitation whatsoever in recommending this property to potential renters - we cannot wait to return!

“First class well equipped accommodation - highly recommended”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2012

Brilliant accommodation - there were 10 of us, 6 adults and 4 children and we never felt overcrowded - it is extremely well equipped, furnished and decorated to a high standard, and the garden is excellent particularly for children. I have no hesitation whatsoever in strongly recommending this accommodation to others - you will love it! The owners Judy and Jim do their utmost to ensure that it is like home from home and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We cannot wait to return for another holiday and having now experienced Bonham we would not consider anywhere else to stay in Bournemouth.

“Excellent stay, would recommend”

Reviewed 1 Aug 2012

I stayed here for 3 nights with my two sisters and our children (6 children ages from 4-11). The house was lovely and spacious with a great back garden. There were six bedrooms each with a double bed, 2 bathrooms and an ensuite off one bedroom. We certainly felt there was plenty of space even with 6 children!! We were welcomed on arrival by the owners who were very friendly and helpful throughout booking. The main beachfront was approx 10 minute drive depending on traffic (quite busy as we had gorgeous weather). The house was lovely and clean and had all the kitchen essentials you could need. There is a supermarket literally just across the road and other shops very close by which was extremely handy. We throughly enjoyed our mini-break and the kids also had a blast!

“Bonham, better than the sum of it's parts”

Reviewed 22 Jul 2012

We arrived after a long flight and then drive from Heathrow, but were warmly welcomed by the owners even though it was a late check-in. First impressions were very good and the place has spacious, clean and modern feel so we immediately felt comfortable and at home. The location close to all the local facilities and short drive to the best beaches and Bournemouth town centre. Definately good value for money especially if you have the extended family staying and would certainly recommend it to my freinds and family.

“Home from home!”

Reviewed 10 Aug 2011

Bonham felt like home as soon as we were welcomed by Judy. The space in all the rooms exceded expectations by far. The facilities are first class and the furniture is of excellent quality. We had 12 people staying towards the end of our week holiday and it never felt crowded! We booked Bonham as a base for our holiday while also using it as a base to prepare for our wedding on the last day of the holiday at Highcliffe Castle. This proved to be ideal and we are so pleased we chose Bonham for this. A week of magical memories for all who stayed. Thanks.
