We’ve taken a look at England‘s beachside south coast city, Bournemouth, to find the best Airbnbs we think you’ll love.

After being named one of Airbnb’s highest trending destinations in recent years, it would seem sunny Bournemouth is a sought after getaway spot. With beautiful beaches, stunning countryside and all the attractions of going abroad, it is a great option for a holiday closer to home this year.

Only 30-minutes from all major local towns including Ringwood, New Forest, Poole, Bournemouth and Salisbury, it is also ideally situated. Relax and enjoy spotting all the wildlife, keep the children entertained on the trampoline and make the most of eating outdoors. No need to worry about breakfast either, as this is covered for all six of you.

This beautiful holiday lodge is a great spot for a couple’s retreat or a family stay; and it’s better equipped than your standard shed, with access to Wi-Fi, a dishwasher, washing machine and YouView television. The friendly, local public house and restaurant, the Willet Arms, is only a 10-minute walk away. But if it’s just a quiet evening at the Wimborne Holiday Lodge you’re after, then get the hot tub running and relax, knowing fresh bedding and sheets are provided.
