A fifteen-minute walk from the sea, this light-filled apartment is an excellent place to recharge after a day out and about in Bournemouth. There are plenty of entertainment options to keep you occupied when you're not exploring – strum a tune on the acoustic guitar, put a record on the vinyl player, curl up with a well-thumbed book or sprawl out on the sofa and watch a Netflix movie. With crisp white walls and clean-lined furniture, the vibe here is minimal and modern. And we like the little extras, too, like the slow cooker in the glossy kitchen, Crabtree & Evelyn soaps and a lavish rainfall shower. Another thing we love? The location. A fifteen-minute stroll through the woods takes you straight to Alum Chine Beach, while countless pubs, restaurants and shops are just around the corner from the apartment. This is an ideal spot to discover the best of Bournemouth and Poole, with many family-friendly activities and sun-kissed beaches either within walking distance (including Bournemouth Pier, thirty minutes on foot) or a quick drive away.

About Bournemouth

In a sign of its revitalising powers, Bournemouth was originally envisioned as a health resort – city-dwellers would flock to the seaside town during the summer to enjoy its warmer climate and breath in the sea air. Today, the town features a vibrant blend of international visitors, students, and older locals, while still feeling distinctly British – come in the heat and enjoy a bustling summer culture of festivals, or...
