A beech for all ages. Enjoy just sitting people watching or enjoy a long walk on the flat. Build sand castles or just admire the view. As long as it is not too windy or raining the beech is a great place to visit.

I think I am very lucky to live in this part of the country. We have beautiful beaches and countryside to choose a visit to. Always clean and tidy well looked after. Cafes and bistros plenty to see and do.

The area is BH so anything with that prefix should do it. Or try googling Bournemouth hotels and check a couple of codes. Hope this helps.
