Westbourne village is a short level walk away and offers a variety of independent shops, restaurants and coffee houses. Bournemouth town centre is also easily commutable and offers a more diverse range of high street and local shops. Branksome Park also boasts short walks to the award winning blue flag beaches of Alum and Branksome Chine.
