ABOUT THE LOCATION

We are spoilt for choice when it comes to local attractions. From our coveted Blue Flag clean beaches to our beautiful sights along our Jurassic coast. There are seven miles of golden sandy beaches just 5 minutes’ drive from Blue Shutters. Poole’s historic harbour is home to Brownsea Island you can visit via small cruise boats from Poole Quay.

On the other side of the harbour lies the Purbecks, which offer beautiful walks and lots of space to explore. You can get over to the Purbecks on the car/passenger from Sandbanks, which is our favourite route to this destination.
