Discover Dorset from this large detached property with its own hot tub, 300 yards from the cliff top leading to beaches.

This grand detached residence enjoys its own enclosed garden with hot tub and is 2 minutes from Shelley Park and just 300 yards from the cliff top leading down to the most wonderful beaches of Bournemouth below. Holme Cottage is set within a quiet residential area ideally situated with much to offer the whole family. Boscombe has a wide assortment of restaurants, bars and shops all within walking distance of Holme Cottage; its pier is home to the UK’s first ever artificial surfing reef. Many rooms in this property have lovely high ceilings and large bay windows, providing a light and airy feel to the holiday home. The downstairs games room provides a great place for children and adults with a pool table, table football, board games and toys. Bournemouth town centre is 1½ miles away. From the well kept town gardens, trips on the Bournemouth Eye can be taken, 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 to visit include Farmer Palmers, Alice in Wonderland Adventure Wonderland, Christchurch priory town, Hengistbury Head, Mudeford Key, Poole Harbour, Highcliffe Castle and the National Trust’s Brownsea Island.

    This house is spacious, spotlessly clean and better than the photos. The owners have thought of everything from the decoration to the facilities. Everything has been provided for you and the house is brilliant for everyone toddlers, families, groups and perfectly situated less than 10 mins from the beach and shops and bars and restaurants.

    Jane is absolutely amazing. The house is amazing and brilliant. Jane couldn’t do any more for us Neighbours were extremely rude and put a sour note over the weekend.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We were extremely disappointed to read this review giving us a 5, having had nothing but praise and favourable comments over the last 6 years that we have been marketing Holme Cottage. These guests were a young crowd who unfortunately from the time they arrived, had their music blaring in the garden - unnecessary as the sauna is a self-contained building. Our two adjoining neighbours unsurprisingly complained during the day time and post-midnight as this is a residential area and their antics in the hot tub were causing offence. I am always clear at my meet and great that guests are welcome to use the outside hot tub until 9pm if they do not play music. Post 9pm it is not allowed as this is a residential area where we must respect quietness In addition, sadly when our guests checked out we realised all our wine glasses were missing and we discovered when we tried to cut the grass, that over 12 glasses had been smashed into the lawn, which we had to pick up by hand piece by piece. We supply plastic glasses for use in the hot tub and sauna so this was extremely frustrating. We feel it is very unfair indeed to mark us a 5 when they ruined all our neighbours’ weekends with rowdy behaviour and caused us expense and a health and safety issue in our garden which is child and dog friendly. Fortunately our usual standard of guests would never dream of behaving in this manner, and we welcome new and our other former guests to enjoy our home.

    Holme cottage is lovely, one of the best equipped cottages I have ever stayed in. Loads of space for the extended family, brilliant playroom for the children, enormous dining table for everyone to sit round for dinner and walking distance from the beach.
