Poundbury is a thriving new urban development designed by the Prince of Wales and built on land owned by The Duchy of Cornwall. Its innovative design embraces the principles of pedestrian friendly public space and community facilities. Often called the extension of Dorset, it is a historically inspired town with a modern twist and prides itself on being a walkable community with shops, commercial buildings and residential areas built within close proximity of each other.
Bowes Lyon Court is located just around the corner from a Waitrose Local and the Farmers' Market. There is also a garden centre with a cafe and restaurant just opposite the development.
