Beautiful Beach Holiday Apartment, only a few minutes walk to the stunning Alum Chine Beach which again has been awarded the prestigious Blue Flag award for its world class pristine golden sands, excellent water quality and safe bathing and also proclaimed by Tripadvisor in 2018 as the number one beach in the UK and fifth in Europe overall
The Moorings has two double bedrooms, one with a King size bed and the other with two single beds and a sofa bed in the lounge. The apartment ideally would suit 5 people as the sofa bed is a bit uncomfortable for two adults. The Apartment offers all the modern conveniences and, as it has all been recently replaced, everything is in perfect order with a brand new kitchen and shower room. 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.
The apartment is one of six in the block so you will be aware of people above below and alongside you.
It is ideally situated, making it the perfect base to explore the area by car or bike, such as the world famous Jurassic coast and the beaches and heathlands of Studland bay, only a short ferry ride away. For the more active holiday makers, water sports and golf facilities are within easy reach. For families with young children Alum Chine has a wonderful play area newly refurbished (2018) on the beach next to Vesuvio restaurant where parents can sit, relax and have a drink whilst keeping an eye on the kids in the park.
The apartment lies within a twenty minute walk along the promenade to Bournemouth pier or 5 minutes if you catch the noddy train to all the attractions of Bournemouth town centre including fabulous shopping, restaurants and bars. A fifteen minute stroll up the tree lined chine takes you to Westbourne village again offering quaint shops, good restaurants and bars as well as a Marks and Spencer food hall, a Tesco express, a butchers and bakers etc. Heading West along the promenade will take you to the stunning Sandbanks beach with all its water sports and recently opened Rick Stein's latest restaurant amongst others.
Cycling along the promenade is permitted all year round except in the summer months July 1st to 30th September it is restricted to before 9am and after 6pm the perfect way to explore Studland. We have excellent transport links: 20 minutes from Hurn airport, frequent train links to and from London Waterloo (1.3 miles to Branksome station, 1.9 miles to Bournemouth station), National express from Victoria to Bournemouth train station every day and of course good road links with the M3, M27 down to the south coast.
This property is not suitable for Hen or Stag weekends or young adults hoping to take advantage of the night life Bournemouth has to offer as it is located in a quiet residential area with neighbours in close proximity.
