Live the love story…

In 1901, Merton Russell-Cotes gave his beloved wife Annie this dream house on Bournemouth’s cliff-top overlooking the sea. It was an extraordinary, extravagant birthday present – lavish, splendid and with a touch of fantasy.

They were desperately in love and never spent a wedding anniversary apart. It is because of their love for Bournemouth that this beautiful historic house can be enjoyed by us all today.

The story of the Russell-Cotes is a love story – it could be your story too.
