Knole Road is a great location.
It is one of those locations where you can walk to almost anywhere you need. For groceries to Lidl and Sainsburys at the Sovereign Centre. To the beach through Boscombe Gardens. To the train station in which London is 2 hours away and there are direct services to Manchester. To the Majestic gym in Roumelia Lane, to the spa at the Chine Hotel. To the tennis courts at Knyveton Gardens.
There is also an excellent bus service and of course you have a car parking space, and by car you are less than ½ mile to the Wessex Way where it is at least dual carriageway to the New Forest, Southampton and the UK motorway network. By car to the just 3 miles away Bournemouth International Airport which is the fastest growing in the UK. And from Poole there are ferries to the Channel Islands and France.
For more sports the public Queens Park Golf Course is within 2 miles. Ditto BH Live Active with gym, classes, swimming pool and outdoor football pitches and tennis courts.
Of course you are in Bournemouth which means beach and watersports. You can walk along the beach or the prom all the way to the famous Sandbanks beaches, on the edge of Poole Harbour, the 2nd largest natural harbour in the world and haven to boats of all sizes as well as being a UK hub for windsurfing and kitesurfing. From Sandbanks, you can catch the chain ferry to the Purbeck Hills. There is a large cycling community and Dorset's Jurassic coast is a destination for walkers.
