Seaward Properties’ current development at Priors Orchard in Southbourne enjoys an enviable location on the South Coast and this short video gives just a taste of what’s on offer right on the doorstep.
Southbourne itself is a small village with its own local shops, pubs and church. There’s a library, convenience store, pharmacy, post office, farm shop, leisure centre and GP surgery. Read more about the excellent farm shop here. There is also an organic smallholding, Tuppenny Barn, selling vegetables, fruit, flowers and plants which offers a year-round programme of activities. The village has its own railway station with links to London and the east and west between Southampton and Brighton.
The village has the benefit of three schools which have all been consistently assessed as GOOD by Ofsted in recent years :
All three schools are within walking distance of Priors Orchard meaning that children living there can go through from Reception to GCSE without having to rely on public transport or the school car run.
The area to the south of the Priors Orchard is a conservation area known as Prinsted which offers excellent walking opportunities and access to Chichester Harbour . Local attractions include Stansted House & Park, Fishbourne Roman Palace, Staunton Country Park and Cobnor Activities Centre.
Just under two miles away from Priors Orchard is the centre of Emsworth, a charming market town with a strong fishing, sailing and boat building heritage. Emsworth has a wealth of amenities with many independent and traditional shops including a greengrocer, two butchers, a fishmonger, bakers and a delicatessen. There’s also a number of excellent pubs and restaurants to choose from and a monthly market. Emsworth is a true foodie destination and hosts British Food Fortnight in September of each year with its own popular festival celebrating everything the area has to offer in terms of culinary delights. The town is also popular with artists who open their doors to visitors over two weekends in April and May for the Emsworth Art Trail, turning the town into a hive of creative activity.
