The Sandbanks peninsula is connected to the mainland by an isthmian road and sandy beach, which give properties along it spectacular views of Poole harbour on one side and Bournemouth bay and distant Isle of White on the other.

Sandbanks is the home of the Royal Motor Yacht Club. One of the leading powerboat clubs in the world, which has the Duke of Edinburgh as its Admiral. The RMYC today is very friendly, but at one time it was basically for the aristocracy.

On the pages of its membership are the names of Lord Mountbatten, the Duke of Westminster, the Marquis of Milford Haven, The Marquis Camden, Earl Howe and Lord Iliffe. From the business world come household names: Worthington Brickwood and Dale, all brewers; Lyle, Palethorpe, Fox and Cadbury representing food and confectionery; W.L. Stephenson of Woolworth fame; Madame Schiaparelli, and Lois de Rothschild.

Col. Walter Bersey, the most autocratic of all the Commodores, reigned from 1933-48. The Colonel, who is reputed to have tried to stop a man who had almost drowned off the club jetty, from being brought into the clubhouse because he was not a member, was a stickler for protocol. He insisted on a ceremonial flag-raising each morning, and it was band leader Billy Cotton who once substituted the Ensign, and to the anger of Col. Betsey, the flag that broke out at the masthead was a Russian Red flag complete with Hammer and Sickle.

Another resident of Sandbanks with sporting connections was Mrs. Louise Dingwall who trained her racehorses on the sands. She was one of the first women to hold a Trainers license, and was still working when she was over ninety years old.

Sandbanks, because it is linked with the Studland shore by a chain ferry has become known as the Gateway to the Purbecks.

History of Sandbanks

The Sandbanks peninsula was once a shanty town at the entrance to Poole Harbour, . Many of the shanties and old converted railway carriages, some without drainage and water, were residences and summer homes for people who had set them up soon after the turn of the century, and the last of these eyesores disappeared in the 1960s. The whole of Sandbanks, now worth 100's of millions was once offered for sale by the Guest family who then owned it, for £200 and there were no takers.

Sandbanks Today

Today a house at Sandbanks can cost over £3,000,000 and every square inch of the peninsula has been utilized for blocks of expensive flats and luxury style houses, many with gardens reaching down to the sandy shore.

Sandbanks is diverse - The recently up-graded Haven Hotel, Le Cafe, Crazy Golf, the Ferry, the beach cafe, and the many new developments give Sandbanks a growing desirability as a place to Live, Retire or a Holiday place in the sun that gives you fast access to Poole harbour, the second largest natural harbour on the planet.

Only 10 minutes drive from Bournemouth, with its many bars, restaurants and less salubrious flesh pots of the capital of Dorset. There are several cinemas, indoor/outdoor tennis, five star hotels and a traditional English sea side pier, also one of the longest promenades that will stretch the legs of the most enthusiastic walker, In fact you can walk or stroll all the way from Sandbanks to Bournemouth Centre and beyond.

The New Forest is half an hour drive, and on a good day West London in 2.00 Hrs in the car and 2.20 Hrs on the train. All in all Sandbanks is a very special place to live
