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. It has a well-equipped kitchen and feature fireplaces in the living room and two bedrooms. 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 ferris wheel, 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.

    Very clean and comfortable house with everything a large family needed. Lovely location nice garden for barbecue. Parking for 4cars important as locally difficult to park. Owner very helpful when needed.

    Although it was more than we've usually paid, we wanted a peak time and a large place. So was Lilac Cottage worth it? Well, we were happy with everything except the weather. We had plenty of space and the owner has paid good attention to detail. We reckoned it was probably the cleanest holiday home we've had, it was well stocked up (we did need all three fridges) and the few extras (like an indoor rack to dry wet clothes on) were speedily supplied. The hot tub was appreciated if a bit on the too hot side for some of us. There's plenty to do nearby come rain, shine or howling gale.

    An excellent location, ten minutes walk to the coast, five minutes to the shops and not far from the main town. Lots of living space indoors and out-we had a lovely time in Lilac Cottage.
