Perfectly situated just 100 metres from the cliff top, with stunning sea and beach views along to Bournemouth and Hengistbury Head, Above the Bay is a comfortable couples retreat. Southbourne is known for its micro-climate, making it one of the sunniest spots in England, along with the wider Bournemouth area. This lovely one bedroom, ground floor apartment is ideally situated just 100 metres from the cliff top "zig-zag" pathway which takes you down to the seven mile stretch of award-winning blue flag beaches.
With all of the accommodation on the ground floor, there is a light filled open-plan sitting room and dining area with sea views, and a well-equipped kitchen. The spacious bedroom has a comfortable double bed, there is bathroom with a shower, a cloakroom, a garden and off-road parking.
Above the Bay is perfect for a relaxing getaway for couples, with numerous restaurants, pubs, cafes and shops within easy reach in the nearby Southbourne Grove, Bournemouth and Christchurch. With opportunities for walking and cycling right from the doorstep and in all directions, this apartment by the sea makes a great base for exploring this popular holiday area.
