About The Location

Stratford House is situated right on the shore of Poole Harbour. There are fabulous water views across and access directly out onto Europe's largest natural harbour; this is a stunning location for all types of water sports fringed with unspoilt woodland and wonderful coastal walks.

Lake Yard Boat Club is close at hand and the harbour is alive with all types of craft as the appeal of safe sailing attracts all ages and abilities keen to get on the water. Residents here benefit from deep water moorings for yachts making it so easy to decide to set sail for the day. There is also water access to paddleboard, kayak or windsurf in the bay.

The harbour is a site of nature conservation, a wetland teeming with wading birds with many international protections in place. It is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) which recognises the country's most spectacular and beautiful habitats and a Special Protection Area (SPA).

Poole Old Town and the Quay are close by and easily reached over the lifting bridge. The Quay offers a wide selection of popular restaurants and bars, as well as seasonal events including summer fireworks, classic car rallies and festivals. The historic Old Town is filled with independent shops and restaurants, picturesque architecture and all necessary amenities.

Branksea Avenue is quiet and very sought after offering the perfect location for a main residence or holiday home; a boat store and slipway into the harbour, secluded plot in a peaceful location and stunning harbour views - all you need to create a happy and relaxed coastal lifestyle!
