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.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Bournemouth, England

If you fancy leaving your Bournemouth holiday rental house for the day and taking in a true slice of British history, then take the road to the town of Shaftesbury which is only an hour away. The particularly fit will enjoy the gruelling jaunt that brings you to the top of Gold Hill, a steep cobbled street that has been featured in many books and even in some television adverts through the years. There is also the Shaftesbury Abbey Museum which houses artefacts salvaged from the destroyed abbey as well as a replica Medieval period garden.

Weather in Bournemouth, England

The winter months of December, January and February see the temperature during the day drop to between 2° and 9°C. The annual rainfall amount for the town is 25 inches.

Excellent weekend

5 of 5
We very much enjoyed our long weekend stay here. 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.

Large luxury apartment walking distance to beach

5 of 5
We used this apartment for a combined business trip/family weekend away. For my husband during the week it provided a great base just a short distance from his clients in Bournemouth. He was able to cycle to work each day along the beach. The apartment has a good internet connection. For the family, we enjoyed a weekend being close to the sandy beach and restaurants of Boscombe, Bournemouth and Poole. The apartment is very well equipped, to a high standard. It is light, airy, beautifully decorated throughout and feels like a home from home. Having two allocated parking spaces was very convenient as we could park both our cars on site. The fact that it has its own external entrance was handy for loading and unloading. The location was quiet and it was only a short walk to the beach and pier. We would recommend this apartment for both business and leisure stays. The owners are very helpful and provided prompt, clear communication throughout the booking and stay.
