We are located in Wimborne Road, Bournemouth BH9, covering all areas of Bournemouth from Poole to Christchurch.

Originally established in Moordown in 1946, we are currently situated in Wimborne Road, Winton. A recent change of management in 2015 means we are now in partnership with Harcourts who are based in Southampton and who were established in 1981.
