The Anchorage beach apartment

Family-friendly apartments in Bournemouth with water park
Stunning Beach Holiday Apartment, only a few minutes walk to the award winning 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.

We would like to reassure all our guests that we are taking Covid 19 extremely seriously. We have implemented changes to our already high cleaning standards. . All beds and pillows have protectors which will also be replaced as part of our cleaning policy after each stay. We will then ventilate the rooms for a few hours before allowing new guests to enter. We would ask guests to remove shoes before entering the apartment to reduce any contamination. Hand gels and antibacterial soap will be provided.

The Anchorage has two double bedrooms, one with a King size bed and the other with two single beds that can be joined to form a king size bed if requested, in the lounge is a large L shaped sofa that sleeps two people comfortably . 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.

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 the families with young children Alum Chine has a wonderful play area right next to the lovely beach. 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 ten 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.

The apartment is one of six in the block. There are people above and below so you will have a sense of people around you. It is an old house so you may hear people.

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.

5/5 Excellent

Great family apartment
We stayed at the anchorage for a long weekend over Easter and couldn't have wished for a better place to stay. The location is perfect, with the beach a 5 minute walk away, a lovely view overlooking the chine, and Westbourne just down the road. The apartment was fantastic, a lovely, comfortable and well designed space for a family. We would definitely recommend, and would certainly go back again

This was our first beach staycation with the family and it was absolutely fabulous! The apartment was clean and comfortable, with all the little home comforts too, including a homemade cake from our lovely host! We shall be returning very soon. Definitely recommended!

5/5 Excellent

This is an elegant and well equipped property and suited us well. The only minor quibble was the single beds. They were comfortable but narrow. Unfortunately, our sat nav was not working. We reached Westbourne without problems but had difficulty finding the road. It would have been helpful to have these details in advance. However, over all we thoroughly enjoyed our mstay.
