A warm welcome awaits you should you choose my comfortable double room in my pleasant semi-detached house situated in a quiet cul-de-sac with free on-road parking. Close to Talbot Heath and Coy Pond. Equidistant from Poole and Bournemouth Town Centres, about 2 miles from fabulous Bournemouth beaches and a short trip to Studland Bay or Sandbanks. Within easy reach of Bournemouth University (pleasant 15 minute walk across the heath) and The Bournemouth International Centre.
If you like walking, the upper gardens start at Coy Pond, about a ten minute walk away and you can walk or cycle through the gardens to Bournemouth Town Centre.
Buses into Poole and Bournemouth run regularly throughout the week and until quite late at night if you want to enjoy the thriving night life or eat out without worrying about driving back. Branksome is the nearest railway station, about a 30 minute walk or easy bus ride away.
Children friendly: I can put a small bed or travel cot in your room if you need one and have a booster/high chair for very young guests. Please be sure you specify the correct number of guests... children count!
For breakfast you can choose from a selection of cereals and toast, with tea or coffee.
We have two young, very friendly Schnauzer dogs, very used to small children.. Please do not feed them sweets or biscuits, especially from the dining table. Thank you - enjoy your stay with us :).
We had a lovely stay with Yvonne and her two lovely little dogs (who were very well behaved and affectionate).
The room which Yvonne rents is very homely with a comfy bed and has everything you need. We were travelling with our son and an extra bed was provided as well as a Lego book spied on the bookshelves!
The bathroom was directly next to the guest room and Yvonne was very considerate of our schedule.
Yvonne is an excellent host, she went above and beyond to accommodate our needs as my partner was running the marathon and we needed flexibility with check out times and use of the facilities for washing up before our drive home.
Thanks again Yvonne!
Yvonne is a lovely, welcoming host, and the room and house comfortable and attractive. And her two dogs are adorable! From now on this is going to be my home away from home whenever I'm in that area. Thanks, Yvonne, for a kind welcome, a comfortable night's rest, and some wonderful conversation over breakfast!
Yvonne is a great host, kind, nice and welcoming. The room was very clean and ready to receive a Prince, I felt at home. All details taken care of, there was a towel for me (really appreciated) and a welcome pack with maps and many useful things. Her two dogs are very friendly and fun. I would recommend it no doubt!
We had a short but wonderful time at Yvonne's house. She and her two dogs were very welcoming. Unfortunately we arrived late from the ferry and had to leave the next morning. But Yvonne made our stay as comfortable as possible. She had the local knowledge we needed and was very interesting to talk to. We would like to stay longer next time.
Yvonne was very warm and welcoming. We had a short but great stay. We would come back and stay with Yvonne again and would happily recommend the room and host.
Nice room with a very comfortable bed, very quiet location.
Yvonne is an excellent host and dogs are wonderful too.
We can't wait to go back there, will be staying here again!
We had a lovely stay with Yvonne. Her house is on a nice, quiet road close to Bournemouth centre and the beach. Yvonne made us very welcome and had lots of information available on the local area. We would heartily recommend staying there!
We came back from staying with Yvonne in her lovely home, brown and happy and relaxed. The room was pleasant and immaculately clean. We had a comfortable blow up mattress for my 12 year old son. He says: 'Her dogs, Molly and Coco, were the most affectionate and loving dogs I have ever met. And made our stay a complete joy.' Yvonne could not have been more welcoming and friendly, and recommended Kimmeridge Beach, which I had never heard of but is now one of our all time favourites. My son found an amazing fossil there, and we had a very happy time. We also spent a day at Splashdown, a water park, which was close by and huge fun. The time was much too short to explore everything the immediate area has to offer. Altogether an excellent base for a holiday in Dorset, we could not have been happier with all that was kindly done for us by Yvonne. Highly recommended.
A very friendly host and comfortable room. I would definitely stay again and would recommend it to others.
Yvonne is a very nice host who helped us with all kinds of information and maps. She kindly answered all of our questions and made us feel welcome in her lovely home.
