    “Lovely apartment, nicely furnished and decorated.”

    Felt very clean and comfortable and the little added extras were very thoughtful. Fab location to beach and also high street is a walkable distance for shopping, eating etc. would definitely stay here again.

The property

Mary Bowes Terrace is a contemporary, ground-floor apartment and surfer's paradise, sitting a literal stone's throw from the beach in the vibrant seaside town of Southbourne.

Enjoying a close situation to Christchurch, Bournemouth and Poole, Mary Bowes Terrace offers an excellent escape for up to four guests.

Upon arrival you are greeted by a designated parking space directly outside the front door, so you can easily unload your belongings and take advantage of the convenient shared storage room which is just perfect for storing those surf boards.

Step into the open-plan living space, uplifted by natural lighting from the sliding doors, this is the social hub of the home where all can gather and reflect on the day's events.

Cross over to the kitchen, where you can switch the hob on and get to work on a hearty dish, serving the fruits of your labour at the dining table. After a filling supper, collapse on the sofa and decide on a film to watch on the 4k Smart TV.

The bedrooms include a double and a twin with zip/link beds for added flexibility.

Awaken from a leisurely slumber and start the morning with a refreshing rinse in the bathroom, before heading to a nearby convenience store and grabbing the essentials for a hearty breakfast.

Remember to pack your beach bag as just 100 yards away lies seven miles of award-winning, family-friendly Blue Flag Beaches, offering all kinds of watersports including paddleboarding, kayaking and surfing.

Southbourne is a vibrant costal town, packed with eateries, bars and essential convenience stores for all of your needs.

Mary Bowes terrace is just a short walk from the busy high street, whilst maintaining easy access to the main roads to Bournemouth and further west along the Jurassic coast.

This southern gem is also accessible to the South Western railway line from central London at Pokesdown station, a simple drive from Mary Bowes Terrace.

Southbourne beach is easily accessible, just a short walk from the property.

Before you head down, the over cliff boasts a luxurious bird's eye view of 7 miles of beautiful coastline.

A little further East, Boscombe Pier is the perfect vantage point for watching surfers, partaking in your own water sports or grabbing a bite and a drink from a choice of high-quality bars and restaurants on the sea front.

Christchurch is another historic town to visit with award-winning beaches, coastal nature reserve and heritage attractions including Christchurch Castle ruins and Christchurch Priory.

The New Forest is well within a driving distance as well as the prestigious Lulworth cove and Durdle door a slightly further stretch.

Arguably the finest attractions on the Jurassic coast!

The city of Bournemouth can’t be missed, home to a great nightlife scene with many bars, comedy clubs, theatres, casinos and plenty of spots to catch live music.

Box off the attractions of this seaside location with a stay at Mary Bowes Terrace.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
