LOCAL AREA: Southbourne is known for being a popular seaside resort in the suburb of Bournemouth, Southbourne-On-Sea is situated between well-known Boscombe and Christchurch. Southbourne makes for the perfect stay, with attractions all within walking distance. It is the home to one of the many local Blue Flag award-winning beaches, the miles of safe golden sands ensuring a perfect family day out. Just up from the beach and walking distance from the apartment you will find a very popular children’s play park on the cliff top, with the opportunity to stroll along to the local cafes. One tourist feature of Southbourne-On-Sea is the Fisherman's Walk Cliff Railway (they run between Easter and the end of October), a funicular railway between the cliff top coastal road and the promenade and beach. This provides very easy access to Southbourne-On-Sea's Blue Flag beach, from which it is possible to reach the beaches at Boscombe and Bournemouth. The main area of Southbourne is Southbourne Grove, which harbours a long shopping street that has a unique mix of individual shops and restaurants. Here you’ll find local amenities such a post office, bank, pharmacy and chain supermarkets including both Tesco's and Sainsbury's, for those who wish to cook at home of an evening. Don’t forget to explore Fisherman’s Walk nature trail, a stunning walk along the cliff top situated between Fisherman's Avenue and Portman Crescent in Southbourne, linking to Southbourne Grove. It’s a narrow strip of wooded land with a nature trail, woodland flowers and shrubs, and plenty of wildlife. A short drive away is Tuckton Tea Gardens which is a traditional cosy café set in beautiful gardens beside the River Stour. They even have a seasonal putting green and crazy golf course to keep the children amused. From here you can climb aboard one of the Classic ferries and take a trip down the River Stour in to Christchurch Harbour. Bournemouth and Boscombe centres are a short drive for those visitors wishing to be involved in the more hustle and bustle of a traditional seaside town. This apartment is ideal for a family holiday near the beach.
