Best Places: Sandbanks and Southbourne

The Bournemouth Coast Path does well in The Times Great British Coast Guide.

Beach View in Southbourne Overcliff Drive is ranked fourth in the 12 Great Houses by the Sea feature. It’s the Poole Bay view that wins but it is also one of the few houses to have its garden running right up to the clifftop. The coast path passes the front door.

To the west, just over the border in Poole but still on the coast path, Rick Stein at Sandbanks is one of the 20 Best Places to Eat by the Sea.

“Floor-to-ceiling windows provide views over Poole Quay and Brownsea Island from the modern, understated, light and spacious dining room,” say the judges.
