Sorry but we are now fully booked for 2015. Pleased to take bookings for Summer 2016. Bonham is perfect for family holidays! We have enjoyed holidays in this house since 2006 and in 2010 decided to branch out into Holiday Lettings. 2016 will be our 7th year letting to family groups and the feedback received has been really positive. We only let the house during the 6 weeks of the school summer holidays to families.

This was our second holiday to Bonham and we weren't disappointed, the house has everything needed to enjoy and have a relaxing time. Having four daughters the close proximity of the shops and cafés was ideal. Judy and Jims welcome was warm and friendly and their property cannot be recommended highly enough, if you are going to stay anywhere on... more

We loved this house, big and spacious, very clean, modern, comfy (especially the beds) and welcoming. Well equipped throughout the house and garden and even for the beach. The location is good for exploring by car to Bournemouth sea front, Sandbanks, Alum Chine, chain ferry to Studland Bay or even further a field. We were there for the Air Show... more
