Situated in a quiet cul-de-sac, only two minutes from the West Cliff with its fine lawns and panoramic views over the bay. An ideal setting, yet within leisurely walking distance of the beach, all the major shops, More the beautiful award-winning central pleasure gardens, with bandstand concerts, theatres and the Bournemouth International Centre.

The bus stop to Swanage is very close, all on the flat, and a lovely trip out. Also you can walk to the cliff top where there are seats with lovely views.
