About the local area

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.

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.  

Family Seaside

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.

Bournemouth supplies the perfect base from which to explore the full pleasures of the area (Dorset & Hampshire), as it offers a mix of experiences to suit all tastes. It is a surprisingly compact area, making it the ideal place to visit for any length of time, from one week to two months. 

Set in one of the most beautiful parts of southern England, Bournemouth and Poole are justly famous for their seven miles of golden sandy beaches, both Poole and Bournemouth beach have been awarded Blue Flag status meaning they are internationally recognised to be of the highest standard, but there is so much more to the area than the seashore.
