How to find us


By car

Just a short drive from the A338 Spur Road, the Feathered Nest is easily accessible from Poole, Bournemouth, Christchurch and further afield. Car parking is easy at the very reasonably priced car-park at the Sovereign Centre just by the mini roundabout.  

By foot

We are situated in the sympathetically restored Victorian era Royal Arcade, that can be accessed from the pedestrianised section of the high street in Boscombe.  

By public transport

Pokesdown Train Station is just a short 10 minute walk away. The nearby bus station supports both More and Yellow buses, so getting to us couldn't be easier. 


We look forward to seeing you in the boutique soon.
