There are many Bournemouth attractions all within walking distance. Stroll along the promenade or catch the Land Train to visit the Pier and the Pleasure Gardens.  Walk through the wonderful Alum Chine to the fashionable Westbourne village, with its high Victorian arcade of restaurants and boutique shopping.

Close to Poole and its Historic Quay. Poole is home to Brownsea Island and the famous Sandbanks which is one of the most expensive places in the world to live! There are not many hotels in Poole, so take advantage of our location . If you do not want to venture out, why not simply wander along the clifftop to admire the views of the Isle of Wight and Old Harry Rocks.

We will do our best to help you plan the perfect stay for you.
