Given the beautiful location on the top of Yaffle Hill looking south towards the Purbeck hills, nature is a major enjoyment and pleasure of our residents. We have visiting deer, foxes and badger setts in our wooded copse. The viewing of these is afforded by the design of the building with glass balustrading and outside sitting and dining areas.
To illustrate the varied fauna and wildlife we have a large Portland Stone frieze in our entrance lobby, carved by local sculptor John Goodliffe, which greets visitors as they enter the home. In addition you will see other local artwork from Broadstone and Poole going back over 100 years. In fact the first owner of Burwood, 100 years ago, was a local artist who exhibited at the Royal Academy.
We understand the importance and effect that things such as art can have, providing stimulation and subjects for discussion and thought.
We also have our own minibus enabling us to go on regular excursions. We often have shopping trips to Wimborne market, visits to local garden centres, outing to Swanage seafront and the Poole harbour boat trips are always very popular.
