Crichel Mount is one of the most prestigious roads in the area, sat on the top of Evening Hill, which overlooks Sandbanks and Poole Harbour. Landfall, a famous Grade II Listed Art Deco house is nearby as well as Tinkers Revel, considered to be one of Poole's finest homes.
Poole Harbour is the 2nd largest natural harbour in the world and haven to boats of all sizes. There are of course numerous yacht clubs, marinas and slipways. The Royal Motor Yacht Club is on the Sandbanks peninsula and Parkstone Yacht Sailing Club is in Lilliput. From Evening Hill you can watch the spectacular sight of kitesurfers and windsurfers in the harbour and feel as if you can almost touch the kites.
If the water isn't your pastime, Moonshadow is on the doorstep of Parkstone Golf Club which is in the top 100 golf clubs in the UK. There is also a big cycling community in the area with a favourite venue being to cross over on the Sandbanks chain ferry to the Purbeck Hills. And Dorset's Jurassic Coast is a key destination in the UK for walkers. These hills guard the harbour and create the special microclimate that the area is famous for. Less energetically you can walk down to the famous Sandbanks beaches for a lazy day in the sun.
This is a wonderful location for entertainment and eateries, much within walking distance. A Sunday morning stroll down to Sandbanks can be rewarded by a bacon sandwich at the dog friendly Jazzy's cafe. Dinner at the Harbour Heights Hotel means sumptuous views across the harbour. Also special is a meal at the harbourside Rick Stein restaurant or again take the chain ferry to the Pig on the Beach. Walk down the other side of Evening Hill to Lilliput for Thai Tapas at Koh Nai. And absolutely not to be missed is a visit to Mark Bennett's award winning artisan patisserie which sells the best sausage rolls in the universe. For young, fun nights out try the close by vibrant Ashley Cross. And there are a couple of great gastro pubs in Canford Cliffs village. Also in the village, for the ladies, is the highly respected HNB hair salon and spa. Or perhaps the best evening out is to walk 2 minutes to Evening Hill with fish 'n chips and sit on a bench and watch the fireworks exploding over the harbour.
If your children are of school age, the local schools are excellent. At primary level, Lilliput 1st school is Ofsted rated outstanding. Baden Powell and St Peters rated good and at secondary level St Edwards and Parkstone and Poole Grammar are similarly rated. There are also local bus pick up points for the private schools of Dumpton, Castle Court, Bryanston, Canford and Clayesmore.
For travel for work or pleasure out of the area, there are direct rail services today to London(under 2 hours) and Manchester. From Moonshadow, you are a couple of miles from the Wessex Way with at least dual carriageway to the New Forest, Southampton and the UK motorway network. Bournemouth International Airport is the fastest growing in the UK. And from Poole there are daily ferries to France and the Channel Islands.
