About the property

4B Waltham Road is a charming detached cottage resting in Pokesdown, Dorset just a short drive away from the coastal resort of Bournemouth.

Sleeping up to six guests over two floors, 4B Waltham Road is a well-situated cottage for exploring Dorset, within easy reach of New Forest National Park.

Upon arriving at the property, there is an inviting open-plan living space where all guests can gather by the electric fire as you flick on the television, or sit round the dining room table to indulge in an evening meal that has been rustled up in the well-equipped kitchen, where there is also a handy washing machine and dishwasher.

Also on the ground-floor is a spacious shower room, and a double bedroom which is ideal for those who prefer ground-floor living.

Climbing upstairs, there is a double bedroom with ample storage and a dressing table so you can get ready in style, and a twin bedroom with a dressing table and plenty of storage so guests can unpack their personal belongings.

To complete the property, there is a bathroom so guests can relax in the bath or clean those sandy feet with a quick shower.

Outside, there is off-road parking for two cars, on a shared driveway with one other car, and an enclosed garden which has plenty of lawn for your children and furry friend to play, as well as a patio with furniture so you can enjoy an evening under the stars with a bottle of wine.

4B Waltham Road is just a stone's throw away from all the amenities, including a Sainsburys to grab anything you may need for your self-catering holiday, or enjoy an evening out as you're spoilt for choice between eateries such as a seafood restaurant, fish and chips, a tapas bar, or grab a drink in the local microbrewery and sports bars.

Also nearby, there is two lovely golf courses, a skate park, a train station with access to plenty of Dorset, AFC Bournemouth's Vitality Stadium, and the sandy beach and Victorian pier at Boscombe.

If you can tear yourself away from this brilliant area, you can take a short drive into Bournemouth, which offers an even wider range of shops, bars and eateries, as well as an aquarium, a cinema, an art gallery and museum, stunning gardens, a pier with arcades, and a golden Blue Flag beach, which offers a variety of watersports and boat rides.

Travel away from the coast to discover Christchurch Castle ruins and the 12th-century house with a rare Norman chimney, or travel slightly further afar to the New Forest National Park which makes for a great day out walking or cycling, with it's stunning wildlife, activities and cultural heritage, plus the New Forest Centre which offers a tour bus and regular events.

For a magical trip to the Dorset coast, choose 4B Waltham Road as your home-away-from-home.
