Grand Escape' is a fabulous property which has been beautifully refurbished to a very high standard. Ideally placed above the stunning sandy beaches of Southbourne-on-Sea, along a beautiful tree lined road, this property stands out from it's contemporaries.

LOCAL AREA: The property is close to the comprehensive shopping areas of both Southbourne and Boscombe with their many cafes and bars. For those that want more than just sand castles there is nearby Fisherman's Walk which was the final stretch of an ancient route taken by villagers of Holdenhurst to reach the sea for fishing. As Southbourne started being developed in the early twentieth century, this strip of land was preserved in 1913 as a park for the enjoyment of residents. It has also become the refuge for wildlife which adds to its attraction. Known for being a popular seaside resort in the suburb of Bournemouth, Southbourne-On-Sea is situated between well-known Boscombe and Christchurch. Southbourne makes for the perfect stay, which attractions all within walking distance. Southbourne is home to one of the many Blue Flag award-winning beaches, the miles of safe golden sands ensures a perfect family day out at. Just up from the beach, you will find a very popular children’s play park on the cliff top, with the opportunity to stroll along to the many cafes. The main area of Southbourne is Southbourne Grove, which harbours a long shopping street that has a unique mix of individual shops. Here you’ll find local amenities such a post office, bank, pharmacy and chain supermarkets including both Tescos and Sainsburys, for those who wish to cook at home of an evening. Although still a popular resort, Southbourne-On-Sea is an area for tourists keen to escape the busier areas of Bournemouth town centre. Why not catch the land train which runs across to the most eastern part? A train runs across Hengistbury Head from the bus terminus to the beach, where you’ll find a prime spot for some kite flying. The nearby Priory market town of Christchurch offers some fabulous river walks and boat trips as well as the opportunity to indulge in a cream tea. The cosmopolitan centre of Bournemouth lies just a short distance away with a plethora of shopping, dining and entertainment facilities. An excellent choice.

Why Bournecoast Holidays chose Bournemouth

Nestled in a sheltered bay on the South Coast of England in the picturesque county of Dorset, this area has seven miles of sandy beaches for you to enjoy. There’s plenty to do in the resort or you can use the area as a base – stay and eat here while exploring the rest of Dorset’s history, heritage and picture-postcard scenery. There are plenty of places for you to visit, whatever the weather. There are museums, galleries, amusement arcades, crazy golf, play parks and an oceanarium. You can bring friends and family of all ages too – there’ll be something for everyone to enjoy.

Are you an adrenaline junkie? Or do you prefer a more relaxed pace? You can hike on the clifftops or freewheel gently along the prom. If you’d rather slow your pulse than get the blood pumping, you can spend your time just being pampered in one our spas. We’ve got golf courses, gyms and leisure centres, bowling lawns, tennis courts and the option to try beach sports. We find it’s easier to get motivated with the sand between your toes and sea views on the horizon! You don’t have to go very far for rippling waves and sparkling seas. Here you can take to your surfboard, kayak or paddleboard and get straight out onto the open water. You can bring your own equipment or hire it while you’re here. We’ve got a fabulous mix of shops – there are boutiques, department stores, designer brands and high street favourites. Our shops are close to the beach and surrounded by cafés and coffee shops. So, you can shop ‘til you drop or just pop in for holiday essentials. The area is well known for its bustling nightlife. There are cinemas, comedy clubs, theatres, casinos, nightclubs and plenty of places to catch live music. It’s hard to beat a sunny day on the beach but with a huge choice of gigs and shows in town, you’ll continue to be wowed long after the sun has gone down.

What makes this apartment unique

The area has a host of award-winning restaurants, bars, clubs, theatres, museums and cinemas, as well as countless attractions and places of interest.

With its ponies, protected natural beauty and thousand years of history, the New Forest is Bournemouth's back yard and for those of you of a literary bent, Thomas Hardy country is just a few miles away (Bournemouth being Hardy's Sandbourne). Continuing the themes, the tranquillity of the nearby isle of Purbeck was the inspiration for Enid Blyton's Famous Five adventures.

Add to that the National Trust sanctuary of Poole’s Brownsea Island and the historic charms of Christchurch and its famous Priory and you have the perfect backdrop for your holiday - with accommodation from Bournecoast being the cherry on the cake.

Nicely presented and perfectly placed apartment

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was very neatly presented, clean and tidy. The position to the beach and shops was very good. Being a ground floor we were a little nervous of hearing noise from above but we did not, it was perfectly quiet. Just a slight issue with the shower which does need to be sorted and a dripping tap in the kitchen but apart from that we really enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: Hi Julie, thank you for your review and feedback. We hope to welcome you again in Bournemouth and will pass on your comments to the owner of the property so they can attend to the shower and tap. Regards, Bournecoast Holiday Agents.

THE DESTINATION:

Holidays are special! They form many of the best life memories and provide a rare opportunity for FREEDOM. Freedom to relax, play, breath and choose, what you want to do and when you want to do it. At Bournecoast we give you freedom of choice by offering an impressive selection of Self Catering accommodation in one of the most beautiful destinations in the United Kingdom. Dorset is a very popular holiday destination all year round. It offers beautiful rolling countryside, dramatic scenery, charming market towns, character villages and miles of some of the finest sandy beaches in the UK. Bournemouth lies to the east of the county and offers seven miles of blue flag beaches. It is near the market town of Christchurch with its 11th century Priory Church, ruined castle and Saxon mill, and the stunning medieval New Forest. The area caters for diverse interests, the popular buzzing beach resort in Bournemouth with its vibrant nightlife; the gentler pursuits of walking, wildlife and bird-watching in the nature reserves and national parks, and along the 20 miles of Bournemouth Coast footpath; and active pursuits such as cycling, sailing, rowing, canoeing, windsurfing, kite-surfing and sea kayaking. Popular also for touring, Southampton, the Isle of Wight, Salisbury and Stonehenge are all within reasonable travelling distance. Dorset features some excellent museums, with world leading centres at Bovington (The Tank Museum, telling the history of military vehicles), and the Russell Cotes Museum and Art Gallery in Bournemouth. Other museums include the Dorset County Museum in Dorchester, The Red House in Christchurch, the Royal Signals Museum at Blandford, and the award winning Brewers Quay in Weymouth. Many smaller towns have their own local museums.
