The property

Built in the early 1900s, West Ridge is a stunning detached property resting within a charming suburb of Bournemouth, just a moment’s stroll from the beach, and has restored as much original character as possible, keeping fixtures, fittings and furniture in age with the property.

Step into the grand entrance hall, enhanced with a stained-glass window entrance and original parquet flooring, before finding the fabulous sitting room, a fantastic social hub for guests to enjoy a movie night beside the eye-catching feature fireplace. Allow the designated chef to prepare a fine feast in the kitchen, appointed with a great run of units including and many amenities to cater to your culinary need.

Gather around the dining table, reach to tuck in or venture out to the garden, which is simply stunning, boasting a lawned space ideal for picnics and a unique garden room where you can enjoy an evening drink with a backdrop of mature trees and colourful shrubs.

As you look to catch some rest, upstairs hosts three wonderfully-presented bedrooms, each with historic features and unique décor creating a space full of character and charm; there is a large super-king-size room, a double and a twin, and each room hosts tasteful furniture with plenty of room for your personal belongings.

After a day on the beach, enjoy a relaxing soak in the bath or a refreshing shower to wash the sand away.

When you’re ready to explore, West Ridge lies opposite the historical Shelley Park and Shelley Manor, home to romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley in the 19th century, a fascinating afternoon out to begin your holiday.

Bournemouth Beach is just down the road, with the property an easy walk away from a perfect afternoon sunbathing on the sand and paddling in the water, and there is also a selection of shops, pubs and eateries for guests to enjoy.

Be sure to head to Boscombe Pier, the perfect vantage point to watch volleyball, table tennis and mini golf, or if you’re up for an adventure, try scaling the nearby purpose-built boulders next to the pier or have a try at slacklining!

During the summer the town hosts fantastic cliff top firework displays with a wide variety of entertainment.

For a different type of adventure, visit the Adventure Wonderland Theme Park, which has rides, an inflatable slide, and a runaway, or visit Splashdown waterpark on a hot day and cool off on the flumes, slides and rides.
