The Beaches (0.2 miles)

If you love being by the sea. We’re fortunate to have some fantastic beaches close to our hotel, the two closest being Canford Cliffs, just a three minute walk away and Branksome Chine, just a 14 minutes walk.

Both are blue flag beaches, and home to some of the oldest beach huts in Europe, they play the perfect backdrop for your holiday snaps.
