Branksome Park is full of treelined roads in which lead to the award-winning blue-flagged beaches of Poole.
Branksome Park, known locally as ‘the Park’ is in a conservation area that covers approximately 360 acres and is considered locally as the ‘jewel in the crown’. The covenants that exist in ‘the Park’ restrict the size of the plots. As such, no property can be built on less than 0.75 acres, so what you will find are large mansion houses situated in mature and often secluded grounds, which was previously occupied probably by an older property.
Running through the centre of ‘the Park’ is the Branksome Chine (a deep wooded ravine with a footpath and a stream leading down to the sea). Here you will find many beautiful walks along the various paths. Adjacent to the Chine is home to All Saints Church, constructed in 1877. The picturesque tennis and bowling clubs are available for local use.
The mansion houses that exist or that are under construction range in price from £3,000,000 to £5,000,000.
Branksome Chine beach, offering miles of golden sands is a safe haven for children and is a very pretty location with bathing facilities, beach huts and the highly regarded Branksome Beach restaurant and Terrace Bar located on the beach and converted from the existing art deco building of the 1930s, the UK’s first solarium. Today, with views from every table, the restaurant’s speciality is fish.
Delightful walks along the promenade can be taken either to Sandbanks in one direction or in the opposite direction to Bournemouth.
