Not only is The Cremona a great B&B, Bournemouth is a fantastic destination in itself and is nestled in the heart of some stunning scenery, including the dramatic Jurassic coastline and the New Forest. All are easily accessible and offer an unforgettable day out come rain or shine.
The breathtaking Dorset coastline offers everything from picturesque harbors, long sandy beaches, dramatic cliff top formations, hidden coves and rock pools. At 185 million years old, the Jurassic Coast is England's only natural World Heritage Site made up of Jurassic, Triassic and Cretaceous rocks.
And if that's not enough, we have the ancient New Forest on our doorstep - England's newest National Park, which is approximately 30 minutes' drive from Bournemouth. Click on the links to find out more about the area and also our neighbours Poole & Christchurch.
Bournemouth is famed for its seven-mile stretch of golden sands and sheltered waters. Our beaches have won more awards for their cleanliness and safety than any other UK seaside destination. Soft sand slopes gently from the pine clad Chine's into the water of one of the most attractive bays on the South Coast.
The bay offers expansive views, from the Isle of Wight, The Needles in the East, to the Isle of Purbeck and Old Harry's Rock to the West.
Within half an hour's drive to the East is the glorious New Forest (Britain's most recent National Park) with its herds of wild deer and the famous New Forest ponies; to the West lies the ancient Kingdom of Wessex, Thomas Hardy country and the famous Jurassic coastline (a World Heritage site). Sightseeing day tours can be pre-booked with pickups from The Cremona. For more information visit Discover Dorset
