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.

Pat and Graham made us feel very welcome for which many thanks. The apartment was immaculate and the views across the River Stour to Tuckton stunning. We were fortunate with the weather and where able to sit out on the veranda just watching people, in the words of the song, 'just messing about on the river'. Good location with just a pleasant stroll along the river into Christchurch. Definitely hope to return in the not too distant future.

Kitchen only has a microwave, toaster, kettle and fridge but with all the restaurants within walking distance this is really not an issue. The studio was spotless, and had everything needed for a stay. Two single beds, two armchairs for watching the telly, a small table and chairs. Crockery and cutlery is also available if you want to eat in the apartment. Graham is a lovely gentleman. Took his time to explain everything when I arrived, and although I did not need to call on him till I left, I'm sure if there were any problems he would have sorted them straight away. I had a lovely stay and hope to return with my wife when we can arrange some time off together. Thanks for a lovely stay.
