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.

Amazing Apartment

5 of 5
We arrived at the moorings after a long journey for a family wedding and on our arrival we were amazed at how homely the apartment looked the owners had made a beautiful freshly baked lemon drizzle cake and also milk, tea and coffee we were taken back , the bedrooms were very modern , clean and comfortable , the living room was tastefully decorated leading to the beautiful Verander facing a beautiful quiet , quaint garden where we ate breakfast in the lovely sunshine every morning , the beach was literally a 5 minute walk to the end of the street . We enjoyed every part of the apartment and we have stayed in a lot of places but this was by far the best and we would highly recommend a stay here , we will be certainly returning in the future , you really have a fantastic apartment and it was a pleasure to stay there Thank you Mr and Mrs Baird and family
