Area Guide

Sandbanks

Internationally acknowledged, Sandbanks boasts the largest natural harbour in Europe (the second largest natural harbour in the world) with miles of golden sand and sheltered waters. It is perfect for either learning the latest water sport or simply lazing on the beach in the sun. The beautiful award winning sandy beaches are only a short walk away while the open sea offers some of the best sailing and coastline right on your doorstep. The Sandbanks Chain Ferry crosses the short stretch of water across to the Purbecks, giving access to Shell Bay, Swanage and the rest of the magnificent Jurassic coastline and stunning Purbeck countryside. For eating out, the wonderful Rick Stein’s restaurant, next to our office, is very popular and across the chain ferry is also the delightful The Pig On the Beach and Shell Bay fish restaurant. The area’s favourite Chinese restaurant, the renowned Ocean Palace, is located inside Harbour Heights Hotel. Sandbanks is also home to the Royal Motor Yacht Club and Sandbanks Yacht Club. Property here is a premium attracting second residence investments and holiday home retreats. Many of the properties are modern apartments, although the area also offers a mix of more traditional houses, modern houses and nautically inspired homes. Many of the stunning properties on Sandbanks offer superb views of the beach, looking out to the Isle of Wight and Old Harry Rocks, or to the harbour with the picturesque Brownsea Island, and the busy comings and goings of the varied boats using the water. There are some properties that will even have a view of both!

Branksome Park

Alongside Sandbanks, Branksome Park is one of Poole’s most affluent areas. However, in contrast to the seaside residences on the peninsula, Branksome Park lies inland from the shorefront offering a suburban, almost countrified feel. Properties are largely nestled amongst the trees within private grounds offering space and privacy. A network of footpaths will take you on captivating woodland walks alongside a meandering stream, eventually leading to the sea. The beautiful award winning sandy beaches are only a short walk away while the open sea offers some of the best sailing and coastline right on your doorstep. For all your amenities, neighbouring Canford Cliffs and Westbourne offer a cosmopolitan mix of bars bistros and boutiques.

Canford Cliffs

Nestled midway between Bournemouth and Poole you will find the enchanting coastal village of Canford Cliffs which boasts an array of restaurants and local shops. The village offers picturesque walks leading to the award winning Blue Flag beaches and home to some of the borough's oldest beach huts dating back to 1927. Families are well catered for with a safe swim zone; beach station and RNLI lifeguards, in addition, there is a fabulous pirate themed play park on the cliff top. For those wanting to escape, Parkstone Championship golf course is only a few minutes’ drive. The property market offers a mix of both traditional character houses and contemporary, award winning architectural innovations.
