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.

Alum Chine is located between Poole and Bournemouth. Awarded the world renowned Blue Flag award for its pristine golden sands, clear blue water quality and safe bathing. Westbourne village is a 10 minute walk up the tree lined chine where you will find great restaurants, bars and shops. A 20 minute walk along the promenade will take you to the lively Bournemouth town centre.
Getting around
If you do not want to use your car once you get here there is a Bus stop at the bottom of the Chine that takes you to various locations including Westbourne and Bournemouth. There is a noddy train that stops at Alum Chine and takes you into Bournemouth. Bikes can be rented in Bournemouth but during the summer months there are restrictions on the promenade. A great day out is the Number 50 bus which you can hop on and off that takes you across the ferry to the Purbecks and all along the Jurassic coast. Details can be found in the flat when you get here.
