Bournemouth, Dorset, England
Newly refurbished (July 2015) Beach Holiday Apartment, only a two minute walk down private steps to the stunning Alum Chine Beach which has once again been awarded the prestigious Blue Flag award for its world class pristine golden sands, excellent water quality and safe bathing.

The Moorings is one of six apartments in a large house. It has two double bedrooms, one with a King size bed and the other with two single beds (which can be converted to a King size bed if requested) and a double sofa bed in the lounge. The sofa bed is really only suitable for one adult or two children. The apartment offers all the modern conveniences and, as it has all been recently replaced, everything is in perfect order. From the balcony as well as being able to see the sea, there are also amazing views over the tree tops of the famous Chine.

Interaction with guests
My husband Martin and I live downstairs to the property. Although we are on hand at any time we tend to let you get on with your holiday. If you have any queries you can either call us or pop down. Our guests are always welcome.

We have a keysafe at the property so closer to your arrival date you will be given the code. This means you can arrive whenever it suits you on after 2pm on check in day.

There are lots of leaflets in the apartment for things to do in the surrounding area.

Lovli light and spacious apartment. Welcomed with a fab lemon cake. Helen was more than helpful with any queries we had.Walking distance from beach and mini train to bournemouth. Westbourne bit of a walk but was a great village with lots of independant shops charity shops and cafe/eateries. Pubs with live music and we found all very friendly. Never long...

Management response:

We are pleased you had a lovely time. Hurry back soon.
