Description

A beautifully furnished cottage within easy reach of Bournemouth with attractions for the whole family.

Ideal for coast and country

Oakdene, a 1905 detached cottage, lies in a quiet residential area 5 miles from Bournemouth’s sea front with its pier and outstanding beach. There are a number of nature reserves close by, one of 40 acres just a short walk away. Nearby Boscombe Chine Gardens offer a good mix of flower beds, grassy areas and a mixture of deciduous and coniferous trees, growing on steep banks on either side of the Chine. In addition to the wildlife, there is also a water themed play area, crazy golf and a cafe. Hengistury Head is 7 miles away; not only a nature reserve, it is a place where archaeology has been ongoing for many years. Bournemouth can be enjoyed by all, with the Town Gardens, Oceanarium, theatre, many shops, bars and restaurants. In summer, there are activities in the gardens and on the beaches to entertain children, and bands play in the gardens. 8 miles from the cottage is Poole, which boasts being the second largest natural harbour in the world, and with Sandbanks, a peninsula, being one of the most expensive pieces of land - some notable footballers and their families have bought properties on this spit. A short drive takes you to the New Forest National Park with its famous wild ponies, or head for the Purbecks and enjoy coastal walks and pretty villages. Christchurch is nearby with castle and harbour, or visit Beaulieu in the New Forest, with the National Motor Museum, home to a stunning collection of automobiles through the ages. Shop 50 yards, pub and restaurant 40 yards.

    This was a great place to stay, very spacious and family friendly. The garden was excellent for the children and family dog. Simone, the owner, was very welcoming, giving us lots of information and tips of things to see and do. Would definitely stay here again 😃😃

    Fabulous property with a great kitchen dinner which enabled 12of us to sit together . A great garden which would encourage us to stay again in the summer. Look forward to booking again next year for the Bournemouth run festival.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner: Many thanks for those kind remarks. The home is geared up as a family home and indeed a home from home experience. If you wish to chill out or explore we are the cottage for you. Looking forward to seeing you next year.

    Comfortable house. Plenty of room. Excellent for a family group. Lovely garden to relax in. Child friendly. Nice Leisure Centre nearby for swimming. Dorset is a really beautiful county with some lovely beaches nearby and a great variety of things to do whatever the weather, but suggest you need a car. Very good frequent bus service, but it takes about 40 mins from the house to get to Bournemouth Sea Front due to the route it takes (worth it on busy days, as during the Air Show!) We had a great holiday.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner. Thank you for your lovely comments regarding the cottage. You are right to point out that the traffic is heavy and takes 40 minutes on the buses but then August is our busiest month in Bournemouth and everybody wants to get onto our lovely beaches. Thank you for drawing attention to our lovely leisure centre which is sometimes overlooked as there is so many other things to do in the area. Hopefully we will see you again when in this area.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner: Thank you for your note of appreciation. This is very much a home from home experience where all the family can enjoy their own space. The garden is perfect for everyone to savour the outdoors. No doubt we will see you again when next in Bournemouth!
