Property code: 83858

A fantastic, pet-friendly property located on the beautiful South Coast, with lots of family-friendly attractions nearby.

Set back from the hustle and bustle yet perfectly placed for experiencing Christchurch, this spacious property is ideal for families and large groups. Sleeping eight guests across four bedrooms, you’ll soon be walking along the cliff tops, splashing in the sea and treating the youngest visitors to fun days out at Paulton’s Park, 19.5 miles away. Weary from your explorations, uncork a bottle of wine and embrace al fresco dining in your private garden.

 

Simple yet thoughtfully styled with comfortable furniture and plenty of home comforts, your accommodation is well suited to big family meals around the table and leisurely evenings playing board games and watching films in the lounge. The stylish kitchen has everything you need to rustle up a feast, and there’s a handy utility room for storing your sandy beach gear. Open the patio doors and step outside for breakfast in the sunshine, relaxing on the garden furniture whilst the children and family pet stretch their legs. At bedtime, each bedroom is cosy and welcoming for a restful night’s sleep, whether you opt for a bedroom on the ground floor or one of the bedrooms upstairs. One of the bedrooms has an en-suite, and there’s a bathroom and a shower room too.

 

A short walk will treat you to a cascade of seriously impressive views out to sea and along the clifftops to Highcliffe Castle, 0.5 miles away, a majestic building that has access to its own sandy beach and Steamer Point Nature Reserve. Christchurch itself has a plethora of bars, bistros and restaurants to choose from, so you’ll be spoilt for choice on the nights you’d like to take a break from cooking. Your idyllic location is also a vantage point for discovering the New Forest National Park, 4 miles away, on foot or by bike.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Although it's just three hours from London and the South East, Dorset feels like a world away from the hubbub of the city. This gem of a county offers the very best of rural England: magnificent coastal scenery, vast sandy beaches, rolling hills, charming villages, country pubs, stately homes and medieval castles.

Take time to explore the dramatic and diverse coastline. Stretching 95 miles from East Devon to Poole, the Jurassic Coast has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status. Here, visitors can uncover Earth's fascinating history whilst enjoying unspoilt views over superb beaches, many of which welcome canine companions too. From the iconic rural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland, Dorset has it all.

Why not head to Lyme Regis, classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? Like much of West Dorset, it has an old-world ambience and offers excellent fossil hunting opportunities. Or head east to discover the beauty of Lulworth and the vibrant seaside resort of Swanage.

Steeped in history and with a certain quintessential charm, Dorset's glorious countryside is peppered with small towns and villages which are well worth a visit. Many are graced with fine buildings, immortalised in the books of Thomas Hardy, a Dorset-born novelist and poet. For more energetic visitors, footpaths and cycleways reveal the county's hidden secrets with the coast always close at hand for those who love the water.
