Make A Holiday Rental House in Bournemouth, England Your Home Away From Home

Situated neatly on the south coast of England in the county of Dorset is the modern coastal town of Bournemouth. The town is relatively younger than many other towns as it was only founded in 1810. A Bournemouth holiday is the ideal choice for those visitors looking to enjoy a seaside holiday that is filled with things to do and places to see. What’s more, a Bournemouth holiday rental house will give you some spectacular sea views as well as ensuring that your stay in the town is as comfortable as it possibly could be.

Things to Do on Holiday in Bournemouth, England

Being a coastal town, Bournemouth has plenty of watery activities available for visitors to try out including fishing, swimming, water skiing, sailing, surfing and windsurfing. Other activities available in the town for your enjoyment include golf, tennis, cycling, walking and roller-blading. Visitors on a Bournemouth holiday can also enjoy the Russell-Cotes Museum which was formerly a house built for the wife of the mayor of the town, Merton Russell-Cotes in 1897. The house was given over to the people of Bournemouth in 1907 and is now home to a large collection of paintings originating from the Far East. For those who have a head for heights, there is also the Bournemouth Eye; unlike the modern London Eye, the Bournemouth Eye looks akin to a hot-air balloon and is limited to 30 passengers at any time up into the sky to take in some wonderful scenery.

There is also the Shaftesbury Abbey Museum which houses artefacts salvaged from the destroyed abbey as well as a replica Medieval period garden.

The owner and her assistant were most helpful in accommodating our family group, including one disabled person. They decorated the house for Christmas, and provided a very generous Christmas hamper. I would recommend the house to any family group.

Christmas is now a very difficult time for us so we decided to spend it for the first time ever away from home and this lovely flat, in an absolute perfect location, enabled us to spend a very different Christmas in an area which we love. Every day we walked along the promenade to either Sandbanks, Bournemouth or Boscombe and around the lovely village of Westbourne with its eateries and coffee shops and then returned to a warm, clean and welcoming flat. This really is a place we would choose to live not just holiday!

The house was close to local shops and a church just across the road . Our only dissapointment was the trampoline in the garden and the tabletennis table were both broken and we advise the picture with the trampoline is removed. Also a bit more kitchen cooking aids plus more mugs. The shower was too hot and we could not adjust it. These are miner critisisms as the property is great for a family stay near to Christchurch and to the lovele Southbourne beaches.
