Mudeford & Highcliffe

Find your neighbourhood

Mudeford, Highcliffe & Walkford is an area of outstanding natural beauty overlooking Christchurch Harbour, The Solent and the Isle of Wight. Highcliffe is situated to the east of the historic town of Christchurch, the resort town of Bournemouth, Barton on Sea to the west and The New Forest National Park is to the north.

It is an affluent area with a population of predominantly retired and semi-retired professionals.  Highcliffe is fuelled by its enviable location and the popularity of The Chewton Glen Country Club, the Highcliffe Golf Course, the Nature Reserve at Steamer Point and Highcliffe Castle.

There has been an increase in development to counteract the shortage of housing. This development has also seen a small resurgence of up-market restaurants and cafes, rejuvenating the High-Street.

Mudeford includes two woodland areas (known as Mudeford Woods and Peregrine Woods), and a recreation ground on the north side of Stanpit which has been used to play cricket since the 19th century.

Educational establishments in the towns include Highcliffe St Mark Primary School, Highcliffe School and also Mudeford Junior School.
