    Such helpful hosts, even lending a pump for our flat tyre! We'll be back.

    The property was spotless, very comfortable and really well equipped. There were plenty of games to keep both adults and children entertained. The garden was lovely and the children were fascinated by the bees. It is one of the best we've stayed in and would certainly recommend.

    The location is very convenient for shopping and spending time at Christchurch Quay. We had some lovely walks from the door and after a day out, the garden was great for sitting relaxing or having a game of boules. There were plenty of places to eat and also places to visit. The owner had provided everything we needed. We would recommend this holiday home.

  • "Had a lovely stay, the location of the property was fantastic and the garden was lovely, it was warm enough to sit out."

    Unfortunately the sofas were very uncomfortable and very low and we were unable to use them.

    Thank you for your feedback. We have noted your comments about the sofas and will look at replacing them. We have only ever had positive comments about the comfort of them until this year so obviously it is something we need to address. Thank you for bringing this to our attention and we hope to welcome you to Christchurch again in the future. Property Owner

  • "Wonderful property in a prime location."

    Minutes walk to Christchurch High Street. A Very enjoyable week and most definitely we will return. Sykes need to update the directions provided as they are incorrect. The sofas in the living area are a bit soft and slightly uncomfortable, although OK if you want to lay down. The garden is beautiful and very restful and relaxing.

  • "Wonderful property in a great location and we had a great holiday."

    The property is ideal for people with limited mobility. Our only issue were the sofas in the living room were very low and there was only one other easy chair to sit on comfortably. However, we would recommend this property and would potentially stay there again.

    6 of us stayed here. My husband and I, our son and daughter-in-law and our 2 grandsons, aged 6 and 4. There was plenty of room for us all. Very comfortable. The kitchen lacked for nothing ! Anything we needed was there. The location couldn't have been better. A couple of minutes walk to the High Street with plenty of bars and restaurants, and a couple of minutes walk to the splash pad and park area by the river. Will definitely be back !! Highly recommended.

  • "This cottage is ideally located for the quay and the town centre."

    The cottage was well equipped with everything you could possibly need. I would ask that you update the directions to the cottage, we have been to Christchurch before so I was aware there is a one way system in place and following the directions given for the cottage means you are directed to Wick Lane car park (I guess based on the postcode), it's better to drive down Sopers lane and turn left into St. Margarets and then left again to Wick Lane, where the cottage is just on the left.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and the owner is reviewing the directions that we send so thank you for your comments. Property Owner

    However a couple of things were very annoying. Firstly we arrived after dark, could not find key code box. Was fixed to a beam in the porch over 6 feet in the air to be reached by a broken plastic stool. Had to use torch on phone and stood on a case to open after a long time trying to find it. Secondly the only television stations available was on a Firestick, no normal channels available and no proper instructions on how to use it.

    Christchurch is a great marina town with lots of independent shops, cafes and bars all within a very short walking distance. The property itself was clean and comfortable, and is perfect for a group including someone with limited mobility. The kids loved crabbing and appreciated the kit left at the property to use. The beaches nearby were also fab, as was the splash park which was about 5 mins walk from the house. All in all a lovely couple of days :)

About the location


Bournemouth 6 miles.

The attractive Dorset waterside town of Christchurch is situated on the estuaries of the Rivers Stour and Avon, where they come together to form a magnificent natural harbour. Christchurch is a real gem of a town, offering visitors a wonderful and diverse holiday experience. The town centre boasts an array of charming shops and quality restaurants, whilst the 11th century castle ruins and the glorious Medieval priory, the longest parish church in the country, are well worth visiting. No trip to Christchurch would be complete unless you have strolled down to the pretty quayside, where you can enjoy refreshments whilst watching the ever changing boating scene, or you may wish to take one of the regular boat trips along the peaceful River Stour. Take your buckets and spades to one of the gorgeous sandy beaches nearby, and enjoy a ferry trip across the mouth of the harbour from Mudeford Quay to the sandbank with its colourful array of little beach huts. Should you tire of all the local attractions you’ll find plenty to do in the nearby family-friendly resort of Bournemouth, or venture into the New Forest National Park, both just a short drive away. Alternatively head to the local beach at Southborne which has a promenade that takes you through to Boscombe and on to Bournemouth. The lovely waterside town of Christchurch offers visitors a delightful and interesting year round holiday destination.
