Our contemporary styled house is situated between Sandbanks & Bournemouth and easily reached by car or train. We have TWO large en-suite guest bedrooms on the 2nd floor - please say which room you would like when booking. Airbnb prices are for one room. If you would like to book for 3 people you will need to book both rooms.
Sorry no young children or pets. Please read our FULL listing below before enquiring.

The space
Our house ‘Chineland’ is right on the border of Bournemouth and Poole, near the beach and in the quiet, leafy, conservation area of Branksome Park. It is in prime position for those visiting Bournemouth, Poole, Westbourne, Canford Cliffs, Sandbanks, Swanage or beyond into the wonderful Dorset countryside.
As mentioned earlier we have two large, contemporary styled rooms on the second floor. One has a king size bed, large TV and bath/shower, the other has twin beds with TV and walk-in shower. WiFi is provided throughout the house and off street parking is available in our private road for those arriving by car.
We are a mainly non-meat eating household and a healthy breakfast is provided. Cereal, yoghurt, free range eggs, toast, fruit, etc. - alternative non dairy milk is always available and gluten free bread with notice on booking. A full English breakfast (unhealthy fry-up) can be found at nearby café's if really required.

Our accommodation is best suited to international travellers and those seeking a restful time and setting who like to spend the days out exploring. We are not suitable for young children or families seeking ‘bucket and spade’ beach holidays or late night Bournemouth clubbers.

Where you’ll be

Poole, Dorset, United Kingdom

From our house it is only a 7 minute walk through a lovely chine (see Chineland) to the fabulous Poole Bay with its 10 miles of award winning sandy blue flag beaches sheltered by the Isle of Wight to the east and the Purbeck Peninsular to the west. From the beach, you can walk 20 minutes east along the promenade to Bournemouth town centre or the same distance west to Sandbanks, passing the cliff top village of Canford Cliffs on the way. The local village of Westbourne with its eclectic mix of shops, cafes, restaurants and bars is only a short walk away and we also have a nice local pub in an Edwardian building that serves food lunch times and evenings. The ‘best ride in town’ No 50 bus (open top in summer) stops right outside us on its way from Bournemouth to Swanage and includes a free ride on the Sandbanks chain ferry, however the best way to fully appreciate the surrounding area is by car.

If you drive 30 minutes east you can be in the heart of the atmospheric New Forest. If you drive 20 minutes west you are at the start of the Jurassic Coast and the 630 mile long South West Coast Path; Studland Bay, Swanage, Corfe Castle and the ghost village of Tyneham are nearby. A little further and you reach the stunning Lulworth Cove and the famous rock arch of Durdle Door - nearby are the Bovington Tank Museum, Monkey World and Clouds Hill, the home and final resting place of Lawrence of Arabia. Next comes Weymouth, Chesil Beach and Dorchester, (Thomas Hardy country) Lyme Regis and beyond. If you drive north for 20 minutes into the wonderful Dorset countryside you can visit the historic town of Wimborne Minster (not missing the ancient chain library in the Minster) and a little further to the old market town of Blandford Forum passing the Roman hill fort 'Bradbury Rings' on the way. You can also visit the cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury (and Stonehenge) in one day out touring by car - and maybe even fit in a stop at ‘Downton Abbey’ (Highclere Castle). Bath and Castle Combe are also accessible by car. We are truly a location for all seasons.

We are semi retired contemporary art dealers (Swedish & English) and our house also doubles as our gallery these days. Having previously lived and worked in London, Amsterdam, Stockholm, Sydney and Los Angeles, we moved to this wonderful area of the UK’s south coast after closing our London art gallery. We are widely travelled and enjoy meeting other travellers and therefore find Airbnb a fun thing to do.
