Enjoying your Bournemouth holiday rental

People have been flocking to Bournemouth holiday lettings since the heyday of the Victorian era. Drawn by the sparkling sands of the Dorset coast, they came to splash in the frothing waves of the English Channel and soak in the steaming spa rooms of elegant hotels. Fast forward 150 years and the town still reigns as one of Britain's favourite seaside escapes. Bustling promenades laden with chippies combine with a traditional pier to ensure there's always plenty of Punch-and-Judy-style family fun on offer. A wild nocturnal scene of chic bars and shanty pubs takes care of after hours. And the gorgeous nature reserves of greater Dorset keep adventurers on their toes.
