About the neighbourhood

Blandford offers local weekly markets, a wide selection of independent shops, supermarkets, restaurants, good pubs and take-aways. Restaurants:The Crown Inn at Winterborne Stickland (1 mile away approx) Our very friendly local! The Museum Inn fantastic food, truly excellent. The bar serves food but they do not accept bookings so for evenings you have to get there before 7pm to guarantee a table, yes really! The Harbour Heights. The Best Views Ever! Overlooking the beautiful Sandbanks peninsula, and Brownsea Island. It will truly take your breath away.
