How to get to the Lodges by train, bus or car
With such a picturesque location, our Lodges can be a little difficult to find but there are plenty of ways to reach us whether that be car, train or bus.
Car & Parking
Beach Lodges Address: Seafront Promenade, Bournemouth BH5 1BN
Due to the nature of our location, we do not have parking directly outside the lodges themselves so we provide two parking options; Boscombe Overcliff Drive or Boscombe Seafront Drive.
Boscombe Overcliff Drive
Address: Boscombe Overcliff Drive, BH5 1JB
Upon arrival at Boscombe Overcliff drive you will find a string of on-road parking spaces that are free to the public. You would ideally need to park closest to Boscombe Pier, opposite adjacent roads such as Grovely or Chessel Avenue.
Once parked you can then walk along the cliff top and there will be a zig zag that leads you to the Lodges at the bottom.
Boscombe Seafront Car Park
Upon arrival at Boscombe Pier (BH5 1BN) you will need to turn right onto the seafront car park. This car park is pay and display but we do provide a parking permit that you can collect from us during check-in. Once parked, our lodges are approximately 800m East of Boscombe Pier (the other side from the car park).
If you choose to park at the seafront car park, we do also provide a Land Train service from Boscombe pier to The Beach Lodges (times of the train change dependant on weather and season).
The nearest station to the Lodges is Pokesdown for Boscombe and Bournemouth.
Train Arrival Times:
Pokesdown – 14:56, 15:38, 15:56, 16:50, 17:01, 17:38, 18:00, 18:37
Bournemouth – 15:00, 15:42, 16:00, 16:54, 17:05, 17:42, 18:04, 18:41
Bournemouth runs on two train companies; Great Western Railway (South Western Trains) and Cross Country. This line runs directly from London Waterloo and Weymouth as well as from Manchester and Birmingham. Please note that Cross Country does not stop at Pokesdown for Boscombe.
Bournemouth has two bus companies; Morebus and Yellow Buses.
Bournemouth to Boscombe Gardens
Unfortunately, no buses run directly to Boscombe Pier so the closest stop is by Boscombe Chine Gardens to which you can walk through and will arrive at Boscombe Pier. You can then take our land train down to the Beach Lodges.
