After a day on the beach, head to the bathroom, complete with a bath and shower over so you can best decide how to wash away the sand.
When you’re ready to explore, Bournemouth Beach is just down the road, perfect for enjoying afternoon sunbathing sessions and paddles in the water. Be sure to head to Boscombe Pier, the perfect vantage point to watch volleyball, table tennis and mini golf, or if you’re up for an adventure, try scaling the nearby purpose built boulders next to the pier or have a try at slacklining! For a different type of adventure, visit the Adventure Wonderland Theme Park, which has rides, an inflatable slide, and a runaway, or visit Splashdown waterpark on a hot day and cool off on the flumes, slides and rides.
With Poole, Milford-on-Sea, along with the scenery of Cranborne Chase AONB and the New Forest National Park within easy reach of the property; you’ll have something different to do for each day of the week!
