Additional amenities & feature info
The apartment offers you the chance to enjoy all the charm and facilities of a little seaside town within a few minutes walk and when you're tired at the end of a lovely summer's day you can retire to your own apartment, relax and watch the world go by from the seclusion of your own home. <BR><BR>If you like, you can walk out for a meal in one of the many town's restaurants/pubs or venture further afield to a village inn or take the car ferry across the mouth of Poole Harbour to Bournemouth and Poole and take in a show/film and enjoy a late night meal afterwards.
