Looking to escape London for a quick weekend trip? And want to soak up some sun and enjoy a dip in the sea? Try heading to Bournemouth and the Green House Hotel!
I was dying to go to the beach and it had to be close to London, so I picked Bournemouth. My choice was based on Google images, the fact that it was only two hours by train, and that I’d never been. However, the choice of hotel wasn’t quite as easy. (I admit, I’m a little picky). I chose the Green House Hotel and ended up with the perfect getaway! I enjoyed the sandy beaches of Bournemouth, ventured through it’s beautiful gardens, and returned to London rejuvenated and inspired!
I love going somewhere unique. And that’s exactly what the Green House Hotel is! The rooms are modern with a twist (my favourite being the bathtub in our room). Everything is bright, fresh, clean, and most importantly eco-friendly. The hotel is based on the principles of acting responsibly and ethically and minimizing the effects on the environment. I loved seeing these ideas realized throughout the hotel! We had fresh complimentary bottles of water in our room, served in the hotel’s own glass bottles! There isn’t a piece of plastic to be seen, anywhere! The toiletries are British! In fact, everything is locally sourced! The lighting is environmentally friendly! Your sheets are organic fair-trade cotton and the bedding organic feather and down!
All in all the Green House Hotel makes for a truly unique experience. It’s the perfect summer getaway on the beautiful British coast. Take a train and enjoy relaxing for the weekend. You deserve it!
