FM90 Grand Avenue
About the home
'Grand Escape' is a fabulous property which has been beautifully refurbished to a very high standard. Ideally placed above the stunning sandy beaches of Southbourne-on-Sea, along a beautiful tree lined road, this property stands out from it's contempories. The property is close to the comprehensive shopping areas of both Southbourne and Boscombe with their many cafes and bars. For those that want more than just sand castles there is nearby Fisherman's Walk which was the final stretch of an ancient route taken by villagers of Holdenhurst to reach the sea for fishing. As Southbourne started being developed in the early twentieth century, this strip of land was preserved in 1913 as a park for the enjoyment of residents. It has also become the refuge for wildlife which adds to its attraction. The nearby Priory market town of Christchurch offers some fabulous river walks and boat trips as well as the opportunity to indulge in a cream tea. The cosmopolitan centre of Bournemouth lies just a short distance away with a plethora of shopping, dining and entertainment facilities.

The West Country / Dorset region
Dorset features some excellent museums, with world leading centres at Bovington (The Tank Museum, telling the history of military vehicles), and the Russell Cotes Museum and Art Gallery in Bournemouth. Other museums include the Dorset County Museum in Dorchester, The Red House in Christchurch, the Royal Signals Museum at Blandford, and the award winning Brewers Quay in Weymouth. Many smaller towns have their own local museums.
Dorset is a top holiday destination all year round. It offers stunning rolling countryside and the Purbecks. Bournemouth with its award winning beaches and The New Forest are close by. Southampton, Salisbury and Stonehenge are all within reasonable travelling distance. Bournemouth has excellent facilities for the tourists and the town and has a lovely calm multi-racial community.
The Bournemouth / Southbourne area
Christchurch is a quaint, historical destination with beautiful riverside walks. Christchurch, ideal for the quieter holiday yet still having Christchurch High Street for shopping, lies at the confluence of the River Avon and River Stour, between Bournemouth and the New Forest. There is a fishing quay at Mudeford, known for its eighteenth century smuggling activities and battle with the Navy. Close by is the famous "Run" where salmon are netted, and the sandy beaches of Avon Beach and Friars Cliff are popular with family holidaymakers.
The Saxons knew Christchurch as Twynham - the place between the waters. The present name is taken from the great Norman priory church, which is the longest parish church in England, and is set amidst a jumble of little streets with quaint shops and restaurants. Alongside the Priory are the ruins of the Norman castle. You may also try out ye olde stocks and even the ducking stool - the last one to be used in anger, and the Town Crier might tell you all about it.
There are picturesque walks along Town Quay - the superbly restored 900 year old Place Mill is open to visitors, the very many swans and the river boat traffic add to the atmosphere here. Delightful riverside walks lead on to Stanpit Marsh, an area of special interest for wildlife lovers, and Christchurch Harbour which is an important spot for migrating birds. The views across to Hengistbury Head and the Isle of Wight are dramatic.
The Red House Museum and the Electricity Museum are key places to visit. Christchurch has a weekly Monday market held in Saxon Square and the High Street (which is "pedestrianised" for the occasion) and there is a Friday market at Highcliffe. Annually there is a Food Fest.
The beaches at Highcliffe can be accessed from the grounds of Highcliffe Castle if you are fit - it's a bit of a climb! The restored castle, originally built in 1835, is set in peaceful gardens and is a place to relax with a cup of tea or amble round the exhibition.
