Boscombe is a suburb of Bournemouth which is on the map in its own right thanks to a beautiful sandy beach and Europe’s first artificial surf reef. The reef is the size of a football pitch and since its opening in 2009 has fast become a popular destinations for both beginner and experienced surfers.

Built in 1888 and fully restored in 2007, Boscombe pier is an impressive sight with its unique aircraft wing design entrance, new decking, lighting and viewing section at the end. Boscombe Cliff Gardens offers an impressive view that stretches from Hengistbury Head, through Bournemouth all the way to Poole Harbour.

There is an impressive variety of quality restaurants, pubs and cocktail bars just minutes from the maisonette, several of which offer regular live music.
