Southbourne in Dorset is a beautiful suburb of Bournemouth full of nice housing stock

Areas we serve

Like Bournemouth, Southbourne was created as a health resort.  Southbourne Cliff Tops had been part of Tuckton Farm and the high street was founded exactly where the piggeries had once stood!!  There was once a Georgian mansion to the east of Pokesdown village with commanding views of Christchurch Harbour and it was named Stourfield House.  Southbourne did once have a short-lived pier and there were regular boat trips to Bournemouth.

Places to Visit in Southbourne
Southbourne is one of Bournemouth’s most lively suburbs with plenty of independent shops, Italian delicatessen, cafes (including a knitting café), pubs, locally made beer and gin and award-winning restaurants.

Take a stroll along Southbourne’s Blue Flag beach or its windy cliff top. There are the gardens of Fisherman’s Walk linking the high street to the cliff top. Seafield Gardens is 2.4 hectares of recreational ground where you can join the bowling club, play on the tennis courts or take the children to the large children’s playground. You could just admire its striking red brick water tower!
