The property is situated on the shores of the famous Sandbanks Peninsula located at the entrance to Poole Harbour, regarded as the second largest natural harbour in the world. Sandbanks is internationally renowned for its water sports and boating and in addition there are excellent walking, cycling and horse riding along the Jurassic coast, England?s first National World Heritage site, which provides some of the most dramatic scenery. This can be accessed by the Sandbanks car ferry linking Poole to the popular ?blue flag? beaches at Shell Bay, Studland, Swanage and the Isle of Purbeck. For those less inclined to take to the sea, the County of Dorset offers some of the UK's most beautiful countryside, with a vast array of lifestyle opportunities from the wilds of the New Forest, to manicured championship golf courses.
