Planning a holiday in Dorset?

If you’re looking for a fantastic summer holiday destination for you and the family then consider Canford Cliffs. This tranquil, picturesque costal suburb set midway between Bournemouth and Poole is the perfect getaway location with its wooded valley walks down to the award winning sandy beaches.

Explore beautiful Blue Flag beaches

Canford is best enjoyed with an ice cream in one hand and the hand of a loved one in the other. If you’re with young people, a visit to Whitecliff Play Area in Poole is sure to go down well in summer. Equally, the Bournemouth Oceanarium is only a short three miles away, and of course there are the three stunning Blue Flag beaches to enjoy; Sandbanks, Canford Cliffs and Branksome Beach.

Get your skates on

With indoor and soft play areas for the little ones, as well as restaurant, bar, ice-skating and roller- skating for all the family, The Ark Poole Park offers a great day out for everyone. Stay at our Travelodge Bournemouth Seafront hotel, just over a mile from Canford Cliffs. You can walk, take a bus or drive to your destination in a flash.
