    “Captains Retreat in Christchurch was a perfect place for my 'work-play' trip to the UK from Canada.”

    I stayed a total of four weeks but it didn't take more than a few hours to feel completely at home in both the cottage and the town. The cottage is so welcoming and tidy, with all the amenities I needed and is very 'user friendly'; everything is where you would expect and works the way you want. It was cosy and comfortable for my weeks there in January and February. I was having a solo trip but clearly having two bedrooms each with an ensuite would be great for a family. After long days hiking ...

    I stayed a total of four weeks but it didn't take more than a few hours to feel completely at home in both the cottage and the town. The cottage is so welcoming and tidy, with all the amenities I needed and is very 'user friendly'; everything is where you would expect and works the way you want. It was cosy and comfortable for my weeks there in January and February. I was having a solo trip but clearly having two bedrooms each with an ensuite would be great for a family. After long days hiking it was wonderful to soak in the tub and then have a great sleep in a very comfortable bed. And part of the advantage of staying in a cottage is to make use of having your own kitchen and in this case the kitchen is bright and large, making it an added pleasure to be having meals 'at home' regularly. If I ever had any questions, the owner, Keith, was very prompt and helpful with replies and also had many great suggestions concerning local sites and restaurants. Christchurch is an amazing combination of history and convenience. Everything I needed on a daily basis was within 5-10 minutes on foot, all within a town that has done a fabulous job preserving its historical sites and making them accessible. And then there is the natural beauty - I explored the old parts of the town, the harbour, Hengistbury Head (three times!), and Stanpit marsh. I hiked through Mudeford and along Avon beach to Highcliffe Castle. I explored the Priory several times, including Evensong and organ recitals, and went to movies at the Regent Theatre. Walking to catch a bus or train was so easy and was something I did regularly to visit Bournemouth, Winchester, Purbeck and the New Forest - not having a car was no hindrance to exploring this beautiful part of England. This truly was a 'home away from home' for me and I am hoping that I can come back again to stay at Captains Retreat, perhaps in a warmer season so there would be the added bonus of enjoying the courtyard out back with the lovely outdoor furniture.

About the location

CHRISTCHURCH

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.
