Two castles, two rivers, six sandy beaches, a fascinating
heritage, exclusive shops, numerous activities, festivals...few
places rival Christchurch's list of attractions and it's no
wonder our Christchurch cottages are so popular.
This beautiful market town dates to Saxon times and oozes

In May, foodies flock to the Food & Wine Festival and
International Food Market, while Christchurch also hosts a
traditional street market on Mondays.
Surrounding the town, discover an unspoilt landscape of open
heath-land, woods and wet and wildflower meadows, where SSSIs and
nature reserves abound. Wildlife spotters, walkers and cyclists
will find hours of enjoyment right on the doorstep of their
Christchurch cottage. There are guided walks too, the coastal path
and a number of long distance trails. And if angling is your
passion, day tickets are available for coarse, sea and game
So much to see and do when you book a Christchurch cottage!
