Everything you need to know for your stay.


Getting to the Beach Lodges

The Lodges are situated 1/2 mile east of Boscombe Pier at Manor Steps, heading towards Southbourne. A short 15-minute walk from Boscombe Pier or a 5 minute downhill walk from Boscombe Overcliff Drive where parking is available.

By Car

If arriving from Boscombe Overcliff Drive, please park along the Overcliff as close to Grovely Avenue/Shelley Park as possible and make your way down the zig-zag path which is signposted for Bournemouth Beach Lodges. The Lodges are located a few minutes’ walk at the foot of the path.

By train and taxi

Bournemouth is well served by the rail network with three local railway stations – the main Bournemouth station, Pokesdown to the east and Branksome to the west. There is an excellent train service to and from various locations around the UK, as well as a fast service from London Waterloo in as little as 97 minutes.

Streamline and United Taxis offer a prompt, friendly and reliable service.
