Living in Southbourne
Southbourne is a relaxed suburb of Bournemouth and a beautiful area. Located next to the sea with sandy blue flag beaches, a quieter retreat than the bustling beaches further along in Bournemouth. In the main higher street, Southbourne Grove has a number of independent and interesting shops with numerous boutiques and coffee shops, popular with local residents.
South of Southbourne Grove is Grand Avenue, Southern Road, Stourcliffe Avenue and surrounding, tend to be large houses, B & B’s and Guest Houses, due to size of these properties, many have been converted into apartments and more recently replaced with modern luxury apartments. Superb Sea Views along Southbourne Overcliff. Going a road or two west is Fishermans Walk and into Boscombe Manor with Shelly Park Tennis Courts.
