This is just a brilliant location, set back from the main West Cliff Road but close to the cliff top and no more than 10 minutes walk to the beach itself. And with its own garage plus visitor parking it really is a premier location. Of course you’ll want to see the air show from the beach or cliff top but If you’re feeling lazy, you’ll catch a lot of it just sitting on your patio.
Yes a private garage and visitor parking but will you ever need a car? A bus stop is close at hand on West Cliff Road. From Poole Road there are buses every 3 minutes to Bournemouth and Poole. You can walk to Bournemouth town centre, to Westbourne, to Branksome Railway station(2 hours to London, direct route to Manchester) and to the Redlands Retail Park.
In a car you are within a mile of the Wessex Way and at least dual carriageway to the New Forest and the UK motorway network. Plus Bournemouth International Airport is the fastest growing in the UK. And from Poole there are ferries to the Channel Islands and France.
For shopping, there is M&S Food in Westbourne. Just beyond that is Tesco and Lidl with a new Aldi soon at Redlands Retail Park, which has major stores such as John Lewis Home, Next Home, Home Bargains and Homebase. For fashion shopping the closeby top end of Bournemouth has Zara and Primark or catch a bus to the famous Castlepoint Shopping Centre for the likes of M&S, Asda, Sainsbury, Next and Topshop.
Sport is brilliantly catered for with tennis within walking distance in the Bournemouth Gardens. Again walk to the cliff top to the Argyll Gardens Bowling Club. The area is rich in golf courses-public courses in Bournemouth are at Meyrick Park and Queens Park or Parkstone Golf Club is in the top 100 courses in the UK. The popular Hallmark Health Club is within walking distance or Everlast Fitness Club is at Redlands Retail Park. You can walk along the beach or the prom all the way to the famous Sandbanks beaches, on the edge of Poole Harbour, the 2nd largest natural harbour in the world and haven to boats of all sizes as well as being a UK hub for windsurfing and kitesurfing. From Sandbanks, you can catch the chain ferry to the Purbeck Hills. There is a large cycling community and Dorset's Jurassic coast is a destination for walkers. Or visit the Natonal Trust’s Brownsea Island.
Eating out? Where do you start to describe? Westbourne is full of an eclectic mix of eateries and coffee shops as is Bournemouth. The local Daily Echo ran a recent article ‘Why Westbourne is foodie heaven’. Locally Westbourne is considered very much a village with lots of independent shops and the UK’s smallest cinema with just 19 seats. The pick of eateries are The Dancing Duck, Indi’s. Renoufs cheese and wine bar, the award winning Chez Fred fish ‘n chips and a real traditional pub-The Porterhouse.
And in Bournemouth there are the entertainment centres at the Pavilion Theatre, Bournemouth International Centre and lots of cinemas and of course the famous nightlife.
Work? Maybe you are at LV or Vitality or Nationwide. In which case you can walk to work. The area has become a significant employer in the South of England. As well as the companies I have just mentioned, the headquarters of JP Morgan, RNLI ,Sunseeker Marine, Barclays International and Merlin Entertainments are all based locally.
The Maitlands is a perfect place to live.
