Why Bournecoast Holidays chose Friars Cliff
Nestled in a sheltered bay on the South Coast of England in the picturesque county of Dorset, this area has seven miles of sandy beaches for you to enjoy. There’s plenty to do in the resort or you can use the area as a base – stay and eat here while exploring the rest of Dorset’s history, heritage and picture-postcard scenery. There are plenty of places for you to visit, whatever the weather. There are museums, galleries, amusement arcades, crazy golf, play parks and an oceanarium. You can bring friends and family of all ages too – there’ll be something for everyone to enjoy. Are you an adrenaline junkie? Or do you prefer a more relaxed pace? You can hike on the clifftops or freewheel gently along the prom. If you’d rather slow your pulse than get the blood pumping, you can spend your time just being pampered in one our spas. We’ve got golf courses, gyms and leisure centres, bowling lawns, tennis courts and the option to try beach sports. We find it’s easier to get motivated with the sand between your toes and sea views on the horizon! You don’t have to go very far for rippling waves and sparkling seas. Here you can take to your surfboard, kayak or paddleboard and get straight out onto the open water. You can bring your own equipment or hire it while you’re here. We’ve got a fabulous mix of shops – there are boutiques, department stores, designer brands and high street favourites. Our shops are close to the beach and surrounded by cafés and coffee shops. So, you can shop ‘til you drop or just pop in for holiday essentials. The area is well known for its bustling nightlife. There are cinemas, comedy clubs, theatres, casinos, nightclubs and plenty of places to catch live music. It’s hard to beat a sunny day on the beach but with a huge choice of gigs and shows in town, you’ll continue to be wowed long after the sun has gone down.
What makes this Bungalow unique
The area has a host of award-winning restaurants, bars, clubs, theatres, museums and cinemas, as well as countless attractions and places of interest. With its ponies, protected natural beauty and thousand years of history, the New Forest is Bournemouth's back yard and for those of you of a literary bent, Thomas Hardy country is just a few miles away (Bournemouth being Hardy's Sandbourne). Continuing the themes, the tranquillity of the nearby isle of Purbeck was the inspiration for Enid Blyton's Famous Five adventures. Add to that the National Trust sanctuary of Poole’s Brownsea Island and the historic charms of Christchurch and its famous Priory and you have the perfect backdrop for your holiday - with accommodation from Bournecoast being the cherry on the cake.

Great location, the property could do with updating.
Very, very narrow drive. Single glazing which meant we could clearly hear the builders next door. House felt cold, but the central heating warmed it nicely. Furniture looks like it was was installed when the house was built and beds need serious updating. No Internet, take that as a plus or minus :-). Phone signal for O2 and EE poor in the area, so not having a house phone was a drawback for us. Location within walking distance of the beach and easy access to main roads is great.
A gem of a place!
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay; a lovely, quiet location and a short walk to the beach. Comfortable beds with fresh linen and an amazing shower. The garden is tired but a sanctuary of its own.
My only constructive criticism is that the oven was dirty when we arrived and had to be cleaned before use. Also there were builders working next door who started at 7.30am which woke us. However when I mentioned this to the friendly neighbour - she got them to start later on the latter days of our stay, which was much appreciated. Understandably this was beyond the letting agent's control.
Thank you for your feedback both good and bad. Naturally we're extremely pleased to hear you thoroughly enjoyed your stay in what is as you a wonderful location. With regards to the condition of the oven and the level of disruption from neighboring works I'm aware our customer service team is in dialogue with the property owner and yourself and trust this will conclude in a satisfactory manner. Again thank you for your candid feedback and we look forward to helping you once again with your holiday needs down on the south coast.
It is clean and provides everything that is needed for a holiday cottage.
Unfortunately, there was building work going on next door, which started at 7 am with banging, shouting, drilling and a radio on all the time. We couldn't use the garden because there was no peace to be had. They left the radio on one night and it was difficult to get the baby to sleep.
There are positives though. The beach was only a walk away and we were lucky to have had the lovely hot weather so we went there most days. There is a shop just a walk away and a couple of restaurants close by.
