Avon Beach, Christchurch Harbour, the New Forest National Park and the Jurassic Coast are all nearby to this recently renovated holiday bolthole. The cool shades of blue and the plantation shutters evoke thoughts of sunshine and the ocean; a 10 minute walk will take you to Avon beach or Mudeford Quay. All on one level, the open plan interior creates a very sociable space where all the family can be together; three bedrooms, one with the bonus of a compact en suite, and a shower-room offer stylish flexible accommodation. A garden-room provides storage for bikes and a games-area for ‘not so’ sunny days. This is the perfect base from which to explore, or simply relax in the calm surroundings and enclosed garden, and your dog can enjoy being on holiday with you.
There are some fabulous walks from your doorstep – around the edge of the harbour into the town of Christchurch, with its magnificent Priory and some great restaurants and pubs, or Avon beach where you will find The Noisy Lobster serving local seafood. A short boat trip across the mouth of Christchurch Harbour takes you to Mudeford Sandbank, where you will find some of the most expensive beach huts in the country and the Beach House Cafe. Hengistbury Head beckons from here, a Stone Age and Iron Age archaeology site, scheduled as an Ancient Monument. The view from the top of the Head is spectacular; Christchurch Harbour and Priory, across the Solent to the Isle of Wight and The Needles, Bournemouth Bay and over to Old Harry Rocks, the beginning of The Jurassic Coast. The nearby New Forest National Park has miles of open heathland, ancient woodland, footpaths and cycle trails; bike hire is available at Brockenhurst and Burley if you are feeling energetic and really want to cover some miles. The Georgian town of Lymington is just up the coast, on the international sailing calendar for Cowes Week; you can take a day trip from here to the Isle of Wight. If you feel like taking to the water, you can catch the Sandbanks car ferry across the mouth of Poole harbour, to explore the Isle of Purbeck. The Jurassic Coast begins at Old Harry Rocks, a very pleasant stroll from the ferry. If you want to escape to an island, take a boat trip to Brownsea Island to see red squirrels, peacocks and an array of overwintering or summer breeding birds on the lagoon (closed during some winter months).
