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 property was very well equipped, clean and beds very comfortable. On arrival there was a welcome basket and all the information you needed for staying at the house was very easy to find. The children loved the novelty of having a television in their room and running around in the garden. There were a few pubs that were in easy walking distance and we chose to go through the woods to get to one. Food was decent and the play equipment kept the children entertained between courses. We were lucky with the weather and managed a day at the beach and then one at the nearby adventure wonderland. Perfect location and a very welcoming and comfortable property. Many thanks to Sonia and Mary for a very enjoyable weekend.

The property was exactly as described, beautifully clean and sufficed all our needs. The little extras including a home made cake and the fresh flowers were also appreciated.It was a very handy base for getting into Christchurch and also for a very chilly walk along the seafront to Boscombe Pier. Thank you very much.
