Charm in abundance

Canford Chase stands in a remarkable location. Bournemouth’s Branksome Park slopes down through broad and wooded avenues to charming beaches. The salt smell of the sea mingles with the waft of the pines. The home has an assured and classic presence among the large houses and luxury apartments. It was purpose-built to offer nursing and residential care alongside a continuing rich quality of life to those who have settled here, or those who would appreciate the quiet prosperity of this comfortable community.

Our Garden

We pride ourselves on our beautiful and stimulating gardens. We recognise that many of our residents had such gardens themselves, and that gardening may have been a special pastime for them. We like to think that we can offer residents the opportunity to continue that pastime in whatever way they feel appropriate.
