From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


After a day spent exploring the many attractions nearby, relax in your very own hot tub.

This impeccably presented, detached, character holiday property has a private, west-facing rear garden with its own hot tub and is 2 minutes away from Shelley Park. The cliff top leading down to the 7 miles of golden sandy beaches at Bournemouth is just 300 yards from the property. Lilac Cottage is set within a quiet residential area and is ideally situated, with much to offer the whole family. Boscombe has a wide range of restaurants, bars and shops within walking distance, and its pier is home to the UK’s first artificial surfing reef, whilst Bournemouth town centre is 1½ miles away. Take a ride on the Bournemouth Eye, which rises high above the town to give the most amazing panoramic views over the whole area. At the foot of the pier is the fascinating Oceanarium, where the whole family can discover life beneath the waves. Compton Acres in Bournemouth and the delightful Exbury Gardens, 18 miles, are both worth a visit, as is Beaulieu, with its world-renowned National Motor Museum, Palace House and Beaulieu Abbey, 20 miles. Other places of interest include Farmer Palmer’s, Adventure Wonderland, Christchurch priory town, Hengistbury Head, Mudeford Key, Poole Harbour, Highcliffe Castle and the National Trust’s Brownsea Island. Beach 300 yards. Shop and pub 200 yards.

    This is a beautiful comfortable house and we were not disappointed. We are a family of three generations and this property suited us perfectly. Being walking distance to the beach was our number one criteria for booking this house. We felt a big fridge ( instead of three small ones) and smaller freezer was needed.

    The holiday was lovely with all the family together in a lovely large house big enough for everyone to have space it was just a shame the weather let us down.

    This is a lovely house for a large party. Very roomy upstairs, and sound does not travel from one room to another very much. The owners keep the house very clean, and there is a well stocked kitchen full of appliances. The games room was very popular with our party, and the cupboards are well stocked with children's toys. Bed linen was very good quality, so very comfortable.

    Hired the house for a get together of old friends far and wide after the birth of my child. Excellent location half way between the high street and beach. Lovely big house with lots of space, and things in every room to keep everyone of all ages entertained - especially if its raining (which it did all weekend!). The huge hot tub is the cherry on the top! Lisa, the owner, could not have been more helpful and was happy to meet me and show me around the house on the day of the let. Could not recommend this holiday home more.

    Fantastic place! The perfect place to celebrate my big birthday with school friends of over 45 years! They couldn't believe it! Everything we needed for a brilliant weekend. Location couldn't be better for a relaxing stroll into Bournemouth plus lots of local amenities. The cars stayed put! Very kind, considerate owners, couldn't do more for us! Very highly recommended. Thank you.

    We went away as a group of friends (10 of us) and the house was perfect for what we wanted. The house has enough driveway parking for 5 cars and was located perfectly for everything - quiet road, 5 minute walk to the beach and 5 minute walk to Boscombe high street. The house was HUGE and looked great inside. Huge bedrooms with really comfy beds and plenty of showers and toilets. Two living rooms with a dining table to seat 12 - fantastic! The best stocked kitchen I've seen with dishwasher and excellent range cooker. Plenty of fridge and freezer space for food and drink for 12 people. Hot tub was great - big enough to squeeze in 10! Took a while to warm up but we were there in January and was very cold outside! Garden and BBQ would be great in summer months. Jane and Lisa were great, very helpful and friendly. Overall, Lilac Cottage is a great house for chilling out over a weekend and for access to the beach and Bournemouth if you fancy some fresh sea air!
