Description from owner


A charming small block of four apartments in the very heart of Bournemouth, just a short walk to the beach or shops. The Farthings are charming and each of the apartments has their own charm and character, they are fitted out to a high standard with quality fittings and furnishings. You can almost fall out of bed onto the beach. Just perfect for a quiet and peaceful break for a couple or adults sharing; No groups please. If we have agreed to have your dog please do not leave them home alone, a sad barking dog is not good for us or your loved one.

Apartment 1 is on the Ground floor and has its own front door. There are two bedrooms, a double and a single and a shower room off the Hall. This apartment is very comfortable for three.

We have one car (not bigger) parking space for each apartment.

Bournemouth and Dorset are amazing, the coast is stunning with mile after mile of sandy beaches, bays and clear water. Further West is the Jurassic coast with caves, rocky cliffs and amazing coastal walks. Inland the countryside is varied with hills and pasture sprinkled with little villages and enticing market towns.

Bournemouth its self offers something for every one, coffee shops, international dinning and a delight around every corner. This is an amazing place to stay, enjoy and take away in your heart.

“Short break with the girls!”

Reviewed 26 Oct 2018

Lovely few days away! Clean, spacious and comfortable! Couldn’t fault it! Will definitely be back! Would recommend!

“Lovely comfortable and clean base close to all”

Reviewed 26 Sep 2018

Recently stayed in this apartment for 3 nights and had a lovely peaceful break. Easy access to beach and shops, secure parking and very quiet location. Beds very comfortable and all we needed as a home from home. Plenty of choice for eating out and taxi from the centre was less than £5. Would very much recommend and would return.

Owner's reply: A joy for us to read your review and thank you for taking the time to write.

“Lovely flat, ideally placed.”

Reviewed 19 Mar 2018

The flat is well placed on the edge of Bournemouth town and very close to the beach and coastal walks. The flat itself is spacious and well appointed. It is ideal for a couple or three people. We also took our dog, although there was not a secure area for her to be allowed out into. Nevertheless, there were a number of good dog walking areas nearby. would definitely stay again.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review and the time you have spent writing. Delighted you enjoyed your time with us.

“Perfect location”

Reviewed 13 Jul 2017

The location is perfect for beach and town centre, we have stayed at The Farthings many times, however this was the first time in flat 2, the flat has everything you need and as always is lovely and clean, can not fault anything about this accommodation. We'll be visiting again!!

Owner's reply: Lovely to read your review and thank you for taking the time to write. We look forward to hosting you again soon.


Reviewed 16 Apr 2016

This is a return visit to the Farthings as we previously stayed in No. 4. It was a great holiday in a superb apartment. We like the fact it is close to both shops & sea. There is little need to use the car especially as there is an excellent bus service with a stop within a short walk of the property. The apartment is well equipped & has everything needed for a lovely holiday.

Owner's reply: How kind of you to write your review and we are delighted your return visit was a pleasurable one. Your review will help our new guests in their choice of holiday accommodation. We look forward to seeing you all again.

“Lovely apartment with great facilities and very close to amenities”

Reviewed 27 Nov 2015

The apartment was top notch, having stayed in number 4 a few years ago I already knew the location and apartment number 1 was just as good as I expected it to be. Lovely and clean, everything in the apartment you could want, nice and warm and cosy. I visited Bournemouth for the Christmas shopping experience of the Germany market and Christmas gardens which were lovely.

Owner's reply: Lovely to have you to stay again and thank you for taking the time to write your review. Bournemouth is such an amazing sea side town, with something to do all year round. We know as we can be as busy in November as April or August. Our new boilers keep us toasty warm all year round and provide endless hot showers. See you again we hope.

“Lovely Apartment”

Reviewed 22 Nov 2015

Lovely Apartment, nice and warm even on a very cold day, secure parking and its in a very good spot, being handy for the seafront and town

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your lovely review, it was good to see you all again and we wish you a pleasant new year.

“Lovely apartment in an excellent location!”

Reviewed 26 Sep 2015

This centrally located apartment with secure parking and very pleasant surroundings is very good value for money. The large living area and outdoor seating were particularly welcome. Clean and well equipped, our only criticism is that the décor and carpet is a bit tire. Steven the owner came midweek to introduce himself and was very pleasant and I am sure, in the event of a problem, would be very helpful. The next time we want to stay in this area, we will certainly come back to Farthings.

Owner's reply: So nice to meet you both and many thanks for the review, These reviews are very much appreciated by ourselves and more so by new guests hoping to book. We are in a constant state of listening to our clients and in this case we had already booked in new carpets to be fitted in early October. We look forward to hosting you again soon. The weather continues to bless us here in Bournemouth through September and indications are that early October is looking good as in many years before.

“Bournemouth central, the location is perfect”

Reviewed 2 Aug 2015

The town and beach are both extremely close, which is perfect when you have teenagers who want to be a little independent. The flat itself did not want for anything, it was clean, comfortable and the kitchen items were above average in quality for a rental. Even though it is near a fairly busy roundabout, inside the apartment, it is quiet. We were also delighted that we could take our dog on holiday. Also, based on other rentals, it was rather nice that we were not bombarded with a long list of rules and regulations, although I do understand the need at times.

Owner's reply: What a lovely review and thank you for taking the time to write. Our new pending guests will always welcome our clients reviews and we also listen to comments when we can improve our game. We are however blessed with an amazing location and that will never change.

We had a very enjoyable stay- location, facilities, customer service all top marks!! These flats are a credit to you both! Location was brilliant and we really had a fantastic stay! We will be returning again! The added extras were brilliant and very well thought out! Many thanks! There wasn't anything negative about our stay.

Owner's reply: How nice to get such a super review, I could almost blush. So thank you for taking the time to write and we are delighted that a good time was had by all. We will keep up the good work and always do our best.
