A brief tour of the many, many attractions of Poole, Dorset

Driftwood is nestled in the heart of an area originally known as Baiter, on the edge of Harbourside Park in Poole, Dorset.

This highly desirable and favoured holiday destination, is famous for the stunning scenery up and down its shores, National Trust sites including Brownsea Island and fantastic beaches; all with the conveniance of being on the doorstep of the town centre with its shopping, restaurants and nightlife.

Baiter sits just back from the shore of Poole harbour and hugs the open Harbourside Park as it rounds into Poole park and Whitecliff. With open playingfields, a slipway into the harbour, foot paths, cycle routes and the quayside only a stroll away, you will never tire of Poole.

A short drive (or a good walk for the more energetic) is the now, world famous, Sandbanks Penninsula (Wikipedia), home to the much publicised Millionnaires Row, with some of the most modern and stylish housing you will see. The beach that stretches up from Bournemouth and meets the chain ferry on the tip of the Penninsula proudly holds the Blue Flag.
