Set in a prime location in the conservation area of Branksome Park in Dorset, this large home offers a perfectly peaceful holiday experience, surrounded by an acre of tree-lined gardens to ensure complete privacy. What’s more, the garden is fully enclosed, making it safe and secure for children and dogs. Take your morning cup of coffee at the breakfast bar as a breeze of fresh air sweeps into the home before you step through the bi-fold doors to the courtyard and the gardens outside. On hot summer days, why not cool off in the waters of your private pool and then dry off beside the warmth of the firepit. Or read a good book in the shade and comfort of the summer room. If beach days are what you’re looking for, then you’re in luck as the seaside can be reached within twenty-five minutes by foot. While sports facilities such as tennis and golf are on your doorstep too – a seven-minute walk and a four-minute drive away, respectively. In the evenings, cook your meals using the outside kitchen and barbecue area, and then dine alfresco to enjoy the beauty of the surrounding gardens and listen out for the last of the cheerful birdsong as the sun sets.

About Bournemouth

In a sign of its revitalising powers, Bournemouth was originally envisioned as a health resort – city-dwellers would flock to the seaside town during the summer to enjoy its warmer climate and breath in the sea air.
