Dorset Delights (based in Bournemouth)





6 DAYS FROM £432


Covering 145 square miles the New Forest is a place of ancient history, fascinating wildlife and stunning beauty. Originally a royal hunting preserve, the forest is now home to over 3000 wild ponies. The south coast resort of Bournemouth has an excellent sunshine record and its glorious sandy beaches are amongst the safest and cleanest in Europe. There are many shops, cafés and bistros giving a cosmopolitan atmosphere and for the evening, varied entertainment and nightlife.


Our base in Bournemouth is once again the very comfortable resort style CUMBERLAND HOTEL which is located on the seafront overlooking the East Cliff. Having achieved Bournemouth’s Highest AA 3 Star Hotel rating in 2014, the Cumberland features an award winning restaurant, comfortable lounge, bar café and outdoor pool. Guests also have complimentary use of the facilities at the Cumberland’s sister hotel next door which include an indoor pool, sauna, gymnasium and squash courts. Naturally all the well appointed en suite bedrooms have tv, hairdryer, telephone and hospitality tray. A passenger lift serves all floors.
