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.

We certainly hit the jackpot when we booked Alison's flat in Burlington Mansions. Alison is a very welcoming host, greeting us herself and showing us around the flat, which is exquisite and beautifully appointed. Because we were staying over the Christmas period, she had provided a tree and a wonderful basket of Xmas goodies, which was such a thoughtful and generous touch. There is everything you would need in the gorgeous little kitchen, the beds are very comfy, the decor light and airy and everything is immaculately clean! Would go back in a heartbeat! Thank you!

The proximity to the beach and shops is just perfect and we thoroughly enjoyed our girlie weekend away.
