Madhuri, Plum Guide home in Bournemouth, UK

Madhuri, Plum Guide home in Bournemouth, UK

Click to book Madhuri now: from £75 per night Just steps from Charminster High Street, this ground floor flat is brimming with Victorian character. Based in a lovely red-brick townhouse, there's plenty of historic charm to admire – think high ceilings with picture rails, ornamental ceiling roses, tall skirting boards and large bay windows flooding the rooms with light. Though it's on the smaller side, it's been well-designed to maximise the space – we think it's perfectly suited to a couple wanting a romantic escape. Read the morning's newspaper in the plush armchair, help yourself to a selection of cereals and teas at the rustic breakfast bar or unwind after a busy day with a movie night in the cosy living room. The kitchenette is more suited to light bites than extravagant meals, so in the evenings you'll want to dine out – there's an array of cafes, pubs and restaurants in Charminster to choose from. Bournemouth town centre and its sandy beaches are a twenty-five-minute walk (though we recommend driving), or venture a little further and enjoy a trip to the Jurassic Coast, famous for its fossils – you can be there in under an hour. Sleeps up to 3 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom

Ferry Heights

Ferry Heights, Plum Guide home in Bournemouth, UK

Ferry Heights, Plum Guide home in Bournemouth, UK

Click to book Ferry Heights now: from £220 per night This swish apartment is ideally positioned on the Sandbanks Peninsula – an affluent and sought-after location just a short stroll from the famous Sandbanks beach. Accommodating up to five guests, the family-friendly complex sits in beautifully landscaped communal gardens where children can play safely. Start your day sipping your morning coffee while you take in the stunning sea view, or head to "Caff" nearby for a tasty, traditional English breakfast. The chain ferry is just a few steps away, allowing easy access to the Purbecks and Brownsea Island. Take a short scenic drive to the fossil-rich Jurrasic Coast and explore rock pools or walk along the windswept coastal paths. Return home to enjoy family movie nights, complete with atmospheric mood lighting and Sonos speakers, or retreat to the balcony and watch the world go by. Sleeps up to 5 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms

Seaside White

Seaside White, Plum Guide home in Bournemouth, UK

Seaside White, Plum Guide home in Bournemouth, UK

Click to book Seaside White now: from £260 per night With direct access to Southbourne beach, this recently renovated apartment is the place to come if you’re looking for sea. The home overlooks the Bournemouth coastline and inside there’s plenty of seaside white, although splashes of colour come in the form of plants, cushions and carpeting. Bring family or friends as the open-plan kitchen, dining and lounge area makes this a sociable space. Board games, Wi-Fi and satellite television are on-hand for rainy days but when the sun is out grab your umbrella, towel and picnic as you’ll probably want to spend the day in the surf. Come late afternoon, wander back barefoot and rinse the sand from your feet in the shower or enjoy a good lather in the bath. Afterwards retreat to the private balcony with a cool beverage to toast the sunset. Central Bournemouth is an eight-minute drive away but with a well-kitted out kitchen and dining table at your disposal you’ll be just as happy to stay in. Sleeps up to 6 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms

Postcards From The Sailor

Postcards From The Sailor, Plum Guide home in Hampshire, UK

Postcards From The Sailor, Plum Guide home in Hampshire, UK

Click to book Postcards From The Sailor now: from £561 per night If sea mists and rolling waves could turn into a picket-fenced cottage, it would be this. Recently refurbished to a high specification, the aesthetic follows a fresh vintage coastal style finished in a Farrow and Ball-esque palette. Oddly, these luxuries can't begin to compete with the lush entrance courtyard in full bloom or the dreamy views of the Hurst castle against the Isle of Wight. If it's the simple joys you're after, sail or paddle through the sleepy marshes nearby. Or simply walk to Milford, loved for its Summer music festival and the iconic English pubs. Sleeps up to 6 | 4 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms

Mirror, Mirror

Mirror, Mirror, Plum Guide home in the New Forest

Mirror, Mirror, Plum Guide home in the New Forest

Click to book Mirror, Mirror now: from £235 per night You’ll be in no doubt about which home is the fairest after a stay in this immaculately renovated house in Lymington. Not only is it an ideal base for exploring both the south coast and the New Forest, it feels like a destination in its own right. A classic redbrick townhouse, the home has been recently renovated so everything – from appliances to carpets – feels fresh and brand new. There are plenty of design touches that set it apart. The neutral colour palate, a glass staircase and plenty of mirrors (including one that cleverly hides away laundry facilities) all bring an airy and spacious feel, while characterful pieces of art make it feel curated rather than sterile. Every comfort has been considered: 60 inch flatscreen TV with Netflix, underfloor heating, motion sensor lighting in the bathrooms, large beds and high-thread count linens. And when you’re refreshed and ready to start exploring you’ll find Lymington High Street at the end of the road (with pubs, shops and eateries galore), the harbour a five minute walk, and the New Forest’s walks, cycles and Go Ape just a short drive away. If you’re looking for a stylish escape on the south coast, you can’t stay much fairer than this. Sleeps up to 6 | 3 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
