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.

Its location is just perfect - close enough to Westbourne to walk if you want to and only a 10-minute walk down to the beach so no worries about finding a parking space. Yes, it is uphill on the way back but it is still a pleasant walk along the tree-lined roads. The house itself has everything you want. The kitchen comes fully equipped and there is a dishwasher and washing machine. The bedrooms are decorated to a very high standard and the beds are very comfortable. It's great to have two bathrooms when there are 4 of you and plenty of towels are provided. The NOW TV was also a bonus with all the films to watch. Outside has plenty of seating for eating, or sunbathing (not that we got to do much of that!) I would recommend this property and if down in the area again would definitely want to use it again - it's so nice having space rather than being squashed into a hotel bedroom with the children on a sofa-bed.

Had everything we needed already there for our stay, I could not fault the place at all. We would love to come back again next year. I would recommend this property to anyone thinking about staying, it truly is a stunning place to stay, home from home.
