12 of us plus a baby stayed at Bonham for a week and had a lovely holiday. the house was very comfortable and has lovely big bedrooms, a great garden with especially good toys if you have young children and lots of tables and chairs.
With nearly full grown teenagers we did find the eating around the kitchen island tricky though,. the picture does not make the central hob very visable and space is short. if you go out to eat or have younger children it would be fine.
We had 4 cars some of the time and parked two outside and did find parking nearby for the others.
Waitrose across the road wasa great help and we were very pleased to be told the easy way to the nicest of the ways to the beach (which is lovely)
We enjoyed a lovely week staying in Bonham, which is a very spacious and well equipped house. It is great for big family get togethers and very quickly felt like a home away from home (but much much bigger!)
With 6 adults and 3 children we never felt crowded or in each other's space. There are three big bathrooms, all the bedrooms are huge and the beds are super comfy. The garden is stunning and we made good use of the barbecue!There were really nice touches like lots of buckets and spades, a water table, garden toys and lots of board games. The kitchen is better equipped than my own one :)
In addition to all this, the owners are absolutely lovely and greeted us on arrival which was very nice. We will definitely return!
I recommend the Italian restaurant Bellagio which is a two minute walk from Bonham, lovely pizza and a family friendly place. Also a big plus is the Waitrose just down the road from the house!!
We enjoyed another holiday at Bonham. We were lucky with the weather again and managed to sit outside to eat in the secluded garden, our grandchildren enjoyed great times playing outside.
The only problem is with the two front upstairs bedrooms which are too light as the blinds are not adequate for blocking light out and this can make it difficult for the children to get off to sleep.
However, this did not detract from us having a really great time in a superb house which is well equipped and kept to a very high standard of cleanliness by the owners.
Bonham is a beautifully presented townhouse in a great location less than ten minutes from the centre of Bournemouth and its wonderful golden beaches. A warm welcome from the owners greeted us on arrival and they were happy to answer any questions we had regarding the local amenities and attractions as they showed us around. The house itself has six individually designed double bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The living area and kitchen are light and spacious and lead out to lovely garden which has four different options should you decide to eat "Al fresco!" All in all, a perfect retreat for friends and family alike to meet,stay and share everything that Bournemouth and Dorset has to offer.

All of the reviews below are spot on! It's a great house with loads of space and, with 3 bathrooms, handily avoids the squabbles of who can use the shower next!
The garden is the icing on the cake and, if you land lucky with the weather, is a great private sunny spot to chill out in.
The only thing i would add is, if you are coming with babies who like a dark room to sleep, then make sure you bring one of those portable blackout blinds. The sun rises at the back of the house and sets at the front, so all rooms have the same issue. When its sunny, whilst it is great for enjoying the garden, the curtains / blinds just can't cope with it. A minor quibble though, and one that can be easily solved, although it maybe good for this to be flagged in the welcome email?
So, all in all, a great place to use as a family / groip base from which to explore the surrounding area! Good job!!
