Bournemouth, a perfect spot for group accommodation, has been a popular holiday resort for many years; it boasts 7 miles of golden beaches as well as a great variety of shops and restaurants. It offers a buzzing nightlife with regular events, theatres as well as a vast array of watersports.
Just along the coast from Bournemouth is the town of Poole, home to some of the most expensive properties outside London, as well as Britain’s best beach, Sandbanks.

Thanks for enabling us to find such a fantastic house. Everyone in our party of 11 commented on what a gem of a property it was. Good value for money.
I would highly recommend this property for your stay in Bournemouth, location was fab, the house spacious, clean, everyone had their own room of which all was comfortable and homely. The host Steph was accommodating and understanding. Great stay perfect for a weekend away with friends. I would book this property again. House Parties also have been accommodating and easy to use.
After a friendly greeting from the owner we settled in very nicely to this lovely townhouse.
The house itself is huge, the dining room is great for sitting down for big meals with guests and the sitting room is the perfect size to accommodate all 15. The property itself was spotless and all rooms had ensuites which made for a very comfortable stay. Parking is available right outside which we found very useful and the location itself is perfect walking distance to all the sites of Bournemouth.
An amazing find - would definitely recommend to friends and would love to stay again!
