Bournemouth Airport, just four miles to the north of Bournemouth city centre, is located among the most pleasant Dorset countryside. Passengers arriving at or departing from the airport can opt to stay at one of the large international hotel chains in the complex. Alternatively, head into the surrounding area for more homely accommodation at a local bed & breakfast or guesthouse. There is no shortage of these cosy establishments in the area, and they guarantee comfort.
Bournemouth Airport has a particularly rural setting, with many picturesque settings making up the area. Villages like Bashley and Barton-on-Sea, for example, are fascinating in their own right and boast attractions such as medieval churches.
If you’re looking for arts and crafts or antique shops, then there is plenty of choice in the lanes and high streets of Dorset’s towns and villages. If you’re tight for time, you’ll be pleased to know that most are also within easy reach of the airport. These rural destinations also have their own guesthouses, which offer the opportunity to sample not only the local hospitality, but also regional produce. Much of the food you’ll be treated to will be sourced from local farms and served up according to traditional regional recipes.
For business travellers in particular, high-speed access to the outside world is imperative. Bournemouth Airport’s hotel chains guarantee fast internet access via broadband, and even in many of the area’s smaller guesthouses, this comes as standard. Additional facilities such as conference rooms, photocopying machines and other essential equipment are supplied in the larger airport hotels, so commercial travellers need never be isolated from their colleagues.
Bournemouth Airport has an excellent choice of dining venues, from fast-food outlets in which to grab a quick bite to plush restaurants where you can linger over a three-course meal. If you’d prefer to experience something more regional and homely, and more representative of Dorset life, why not head out into the countryside and find a cosy B&B in one of the surrounding villages and townships? Many of these are family-owned, and you’ll feel like a part of the household. There’s no better way of settling in to the local community, and these small guesthouses provide comfortable rooms and good, wholesome fare at very reasonable prices.
With Bournemouth just a few miles away from the airport, international travellers and visitors who are just passing through are within easy reach of not only grand spa hotels (complete with massage and sports facilities), but a great range of shopping and cultural venues. Choose a B&B near the city, for example, and you have quick and easy access to popular attractions such as the Oceanarium and Highcliffe Castle, as well as many museums, art galleries and other treasures. Bournemouth has something for the whole family, whether you’re based at the airport, a local hotel or a cheerful B&B.
