Interaction with guests
My husband Martin and I live downstairs to the property. Although we are on hand at any time we tend to let you get on with your holiday. If you have any queries you can either call us or pop down. Our guests are always welcome. We have a keysafe at the property so closer to your arrival date you will be given the code. This means you can arrive whenever it suits you on after 2pm on check in day. There are lots of leaflets in the apartment for things to do in the surrounding area.

About the neighbourhood
Where else would you find the most amazing landscape of chalk downs, steep limestone ridges and low lying clay valleys? Where half the county is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, that swoops down to the most breath taking coastline? Where three quarters of the county is classed as a World Heritage site which features stunning landforms such as Lulworth Cove, Chesil Beach ad Durdle Door, hemmed by pristine golden sands that are lapped by clear blue waters? Dorset of course. Alum Chine beach is regularly awarded blue flags for clean and safe bathing. Bournemouth and Westbourne are only a short walk away which offers great shopping and a fantastic range of bars and restaurants.
Getting around
If you do not want to use your car once you get here there is a Bus stop at the bottom of the Chine that takes you to various locations including Westbourne and Bournemouth. There is a noddy train that stops at Alum Chine and takes you into Bournemouth. Beryl Bikes can be collected at Alum Chine and left anywhere you please for a small fee, you just need to download the App. During the summer months there are restrictions on the promenade. A great day out is the Number 50 bus which you can hop on and off that takes you across the ferry to the Purbecks and all along the Jurassic coast. Details can be found in the flat when you get here.
