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

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.

Highcliffe and Chewton Bunny, Nash Farm Estate, which has changed dramatically since I was a little girl. Milton Abbey, Mudeford but did not have enough time to Take our little dog to Hengistbury Head, but will do next time.

The apartment was spacious, clean and well equiped. It was a 5 minute walk to the beach and easy access along the promenade to Bournemouth pier & Town Centre - with the luxury of the land train coming back & terminating at the bottom of the hill. Lovely to sit on the patio first thing in the morning in the september sun, listening to the sea & birds. Very quiet in relation to passing traffic. Consierge were very helpful with regards to the area. Underground parking a plus. Would have liked instructions for some of the kitchen appliances. Thank you for a wonderful stay& would have no hesitation in recommendations.
