Beautiful Beach Holiday Apartment, only a few minutes walk to the stunning Alum Chine Beach which again has been awarded the prestigious Blue Flag award for its world class pristine golden sands, excellent water quality and safe bathing and also proclaimed by Tripadvisor in 2018 as the number one beach in the UK and fifth in Europe overall . 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.

The Moorings is one of six apartments in a large house.

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. Located in a quiet residential area and only minutes from the beach, makes it the perfect place to relax. There really is no need for a car as most places are accessible by foot, bike or local transport. It is ideally situated, making it the perfect base to explore the area 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 all within easy reach. The apartment lies within a twenty minute walk along the promenade to Bournemouth pier, where there are a wide range of shops and restaurants (or a five minute noddy train ride). A ten minute stroll up the tree lined chine to Westbourne Village will take you to a host of pubs, restaurants and shops as well as a Marks and Spencer food hall a Tesco Express, a local butcher, artisan bakers and specialist delicatesans. Heading west along the promenade you will reach the stunning Sandbanks beach with all its water sports and restaurants including Rick Steins new fish restaurant. For the young families The Moorings is perfect as Alum Chine offers a clean safe beach free from dogs as well as a small play park and paddling pool. All accessible from the apartment without having to cross any roads. Excellent Transport links: 20 minutes from Hurn Airport, frequent train links to London Waterloo (1.3 miles to Branksome station, 1.9 miles to Bournemouth station), bus services to Poole and Bournemouth 5 minute walk.

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.

About the neighbourhood
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.
