"A very pleasant oasis in Christchurch near Bournemouth"

My wife and I, together with our young teenage son, had a very pleasant five nights stay at Bluebell Corner between the 5th & 10th August 2013. Imbedded within a housing estate this is a very pleasant oasis, and surprisingly we found it to be a very quiet location. The accommodation was very clean and well equipped. It’s location in the Christchurch area of Bournemouth was a great base (providing you had a car), and we were out each day from 10.30am going off in all directions. The building itself is attached to the owners property, although from inside the property you have difficulty to see his house due to the angle between the two properties. From Bluebell Corner you look out over and have access to, a lovely tranquil old English style garden equipped with nice garden furniture for your use. The owner Mr John Chapman was a very pleasant man who kept himself to himself, but, was there if you needed him, and was very friendly and helpful.

Thank you for your review and glad you had a pleasant stay. As you say the location is perfect for exploring all the area has to offer as well as just taking time out to relax. Hope to see you again.

"Home from Home"

When we drove up our initial impression was not great, we were in a housing estate and it looked like we were to stay in the garage !!! But when we were shown round the bungalow (next to the garage) we were very pleasantly surprised. The accommodation was spotless, well equipped and very comfortable. The garden is peaceful and a good sun trap, a nice place to relax. The owner ( who lives in the house next door) was friendly and helpful and did all he could to make our stay enjoyable. The location is great for the shops with a Lidl and a Sainsbury's within 1/2 a mile and lots of pubs nearby serving good food. The area has lots to see and do. We enjoyed our stay very much.

Thank you for your lovely comments on the bungalow. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and hopefully look forward to welcoming you back another time.
