If you do like to be beside the seaside, this is the perfect holiday home for you. This ground-floor apartment is located within walking distance of three beautiful beaches – Sandbanks, Flaghead Chine and Branksome Chine. You’re also only five minutes away from Luscombe Valley Nature Reserve, making this a wonderful base from which to explore the great outdoors. A lovely south-facing garden is the cherry on top of this convenient and comfortable home. Spend your days at the beach, then come home to fire up the barbecue and chill out in the private garden until late. The living room looks out onto the sunny, pine-tree-lined garden – why not open up the double doors to create a vast indoor-outdoor living space? Canford Cliffs village is just a ten-minute walk away, so you can easily stock up on supplies. There are pubs, restaurants and wine bars, with something for everyone. For even greater choice, drive into Bournemouth – ten minutes by car – or Poole – a fifteen-minute drive. With easy access to city living and the quiet seaside setting of this home, you really get the best of both worlds.
