  • "Lovely well equipped cottage in a perfect location with the bonus of off road parking."

    Some may consider it a bit noisey at night due to the location, with the pub opposite but this did not bother us. Very dog friendly with fantastic river and beach walks, less than 10 mins drive away. Fantastic pubs, cafes and shops (M&S foodhall 2 min walk). Would definitely recommend.

    Thank you so much Joanna so pleased you enjoyed the cottage Kind regards marella and Archie Property Owner

    Parking is tight but we were used to it as the week went on. Electric charger nearby was very useful. Cottage was clean and kitchen utensils were ok. Would suggest adding a pair of scissors. Only annoying thing was the kitchen tap. If you switched the hot water on a little too much it wet your clothes. We look forward to our next visit in April.

  • "Had a lovely week here at this great cottage."

    It is in a good location and very close to all the shops, buses, restaurants and bars. We enjoyed lovely walks to Mudeford and Southbourne which both have great beaches. The accommodation was very comfortable, clean and well maintained and the kitchen was very well equipped. The beds were also very comfortable. Geoff

  • "House is in a great location also comfy beds and nice decor."

    Unfortunately though bad point was cleanliness, glass hood flume and the cooker/oven were not clean, glass hood was thick with grease, floors were not washed, cobwebs everywhere, and we had to hoover dead leaves from inside front door. We come on holiday to relax not to clean what should have been clean. Corners cut where cleaning is concerned. If these points are hopefully heeded then the place would be perfect.

    Hello and please accept our apologies for this experience. We pay a professional cleaning company to do a thorough job after each and every letting and this type of feedback is highly disappointing. We will take this matter up with the company concerned immediately. I note that you posted the review on the day you checked in , our number is clearly displayed in the cottage and we ask guests to contact us with any issues. We would have been able to arrange an immediate return visit by our cleaning company. If the regular cleaner is ill or away such things can very occasionally happen , no excuse , but these things can happen. The key is that we can put them the right very quickly but if we are not contacted we do not have this chance to. I encourage guests to read a range of reviews , we receive numerous comments such as ‘spotlessly clean ‘ and ‘delightful’ very regularly and your experience is extremely rare.We take our responsibilities very seriously and feel badly let down and will ensure this type of comments never happens in the future.

    Very convenient for Christchurch High Street and buses to the surrounding area. We as a family had a great time and it was a bonus that the weather was kind to us. Also we found out that the middle weekend of our 2 week stay in August was Christchurch Carnival so we enjoyed that as well.

  • "What a wonderful cottage, it had everything we needed and more."

    The weather for our stay was beautiful so we could make use of the seating area outside in the early evening after a day out and the sun was perfectly positioned. The bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable and everything in the property was clean and well maintained. The area itself had everything we needed so we didn't venture far away. Beautiful walk along the harbour and river with lots of hidden history. We had a couple of questions during our stay and the host of the property was extremely helpful we honestly could not have asked for more and we will definitely be coming back here again.

    Thank you so much Catherine for choosing Trinity Cottage, we are delighted you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "Our stay was lovely."

    We enjoyed walking to the quay. And catching the bus to Bournemouth. And looking round the stalls on market day. The only thing I would add to the property would be a cot so we didn't have to bring our travel cot and mattress.

    So pleased you enjoyed the cottage and Christchurch it is a lovey Area Sorry about the cot we don’t have much storage in the cottage We have a large shed in the garden for high chair and pushchair And spare dining chairs I will look in to getting a cot I just thought it may get damp And cold in the shed .

  • "Really lovely cottage which was very clean and looked like it had been recently tastefully decorated."

    Fantastic location close to all the lovely restaurants and bars and more widely all the attractions of Christchurch and surrounding area. The only negative comment I’d make is that the bedrooms are set up to sleep 6 however we had 5 of us, our 3 kids are all adult-sized teenagers now and we found it a squash downstairs. There is really only space for 4 people downstairs - 4 round the table and only space for 4 on the sofas- someone had to sit on a plastic garden chair which obviously isn’t very comfy and it was a real tight squeeze, they were sat in the access way through to the kitchen so no one could come and go. It’s difficult to gauge size from the photos on the website. It’s perfect for a group of 4 I’d say.

    Hi Kathryn and thank you. We take on board your comments. We have had groups of five and even six before including little ones ,and this hasn’t been mentioned but we are sorry you felt a bit squeezed. We will look at providing spare chairs for such bookings , and there is also the option of the breakfast bar with the two comfy stools. Glad you enjoyed the fantastic location and the cottage in general. Property Owner

    My only gripes are that the pressure on the shower was quite low and the dishwasher was noisy in operation. We will definitely book another visit.

    Hi Colin and thank you for the feedback. Dishwashers can of course be a little loud in open plan rooms , we tend to pop them on when going out. Sorry if the pressure on the shower seemed low, this has not been mentioned before but it is being checked as we speak. All the best Marella and Archie Property Owner

  • "Trinity cottage is equipped with everything you could possibly need."

    It's deceptively spacious and nicely decorated. The beds are really comfortable, and the property is spotlessly clean. It's ideally situated for shops, pubs, restaurants, and a short walk down to the harbour, where you can hire a boat for a trip down the river, or catch a ferry to local beaches. We had a great week here, and would definitely recommend it.❤

    The property was clean and comfortable and is perfectly positioned close to everything you could possibly need. Would definitely recommend. Would point out on the listed description though that the parking area is quite small and only really suitable for one family sized vehicle. Sean.

    Thank you Sean so pleased you enjoyed your stay at the cottage. Regarding the private parking area it is correctly described as a’tandem’ system ie two cars park one in front of the other. It is definitely possible , there is enough space , but larger vehicles are better as the vehicle at the front. Thank you Archie and Marella Property Owner

  • "The property was filthy on our arrival with only half the beds made."

    My wife spent the first night and morning cleaning the house to ensure it was hygienic enough for a baby. The bins hadn't been put out for weeks so we had no where to store the rubbish until bin day. The property is actually very good with a good location. The thing that let it down was the cleanliness and basic items missing. It would be great if you could put in an iron and ironing board. I wouldnt let with Sykes cottages if I were the owner, I found that most of the things that frustrated me were conversations with Sykes who didn't communicate with the owner or with the person letting. This then exacerbated the issues.

    Thank you for your feedback . As new business owners trying to provide the very highest standards for our guests ,your comments were very concerning and confusing, especially since the two previous guests described the property as ‘very clean’ and a ‘lovely clean property’. Our cleaning company had Covid related absences during this period, so despite completing a changeover clean ,it seems the normally very high standards may have slipped slightly, for which we apologised. My wife reacted to your complaint immediately. We conducted an extra clean and offered a further deep clean , which you rejected, preferring to deal with Sykes. We are aware of no basic items missing but have now added such items as hair dryer, iron and high chair. Despite it not being standard practice all beds will now be made up for all rentals. We have re-iterated the request for our guests to put the bins outside the gate on Tuesday evenings. We are pleased you were happy to accept our offer of a partial refund and regret that ,due to the popularity of the property, we were not able to accommodate your request to stay two further nights.

  • "The property has been recently refurbished."

    The walls have been painted. New carpets have been put in upstairs. The bathroom was clean and bright. The beds were very comfortable. The wifi was fast. The kitchen was well-equipped (and had lots of things that not all cottages have, e.g. cling film, foil, salt, pepper, plus plenty of cutlery and utensils). The property overlooks a public car park, so we did hear some noise in the car park on the weekend from people returning late at night to their cars. But this was a minor inconvenience given how well situated the property is for the high street in Christchurch and all of its shops and restaurants. We very much enjoyed our stay and would consider returning if we fancied being in the same part of the country again.

The property

A wonderfully presented, end-of-terrace cottage tucked away in the heart of the old town of Christchurch, a historical town on the South Coast of Dorset.

Set over two floors, Trinity cottage is an ideal escape for families and friends looking to explore the wonders of Dorset.

Step into this delightful abode and discover the open-plan living area, featuring a well-appointed kitchen with gas hob, electric oven, microwave, fridge, dishwasher and even a washing machine, so you won’t have to pack your whole wardrobe.

While the chef is rustling up a feast, set the dining table with crockery and cutlery and pop open a bottle of fizz in celebration.

Spend your down time on the sofa, catching up on your favourite shows or discuss with the group where to visit next.

A patio door provides access to the enclosed garden, complete with a table and chairs so you can enjoy alfresco dining on a balmy evening.

If watersports are your specialty, you’ll be delighted to know that there is the possibility to hire boats and paddle boards nearby!

Take time to explore the old castle ruins and stunning priory, or just relax with an ice cream in the riverside park, where bands often play, or if you fancy a boat trip then hop on board one of the regular ferries that gently chug their way up the River Stour.

After building up an appetite, be sure to sample some of the well-established restaurants in the area; visit The Boathouse, a popular restaurant offering alfresco dining and river views.

The fabulous wine bar of Soho, where you can enjoy good food and cocktails, and The Thomas Tripp, a local institution and family-run pub offering tasty meals can all be found close by.

Visit the Jetty for some fine dining or indulge in some fresh seafood at The Noisy Lobster, a superb waterfront restaurant which offers fresh produce and a charming outdoor dining experience.

Amble along the pretty coastlines and take in the coastal scenery or spend an afternoon at the beach; why not venture into Bournemouth and discover their splendid attractions?

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.
