"Great Location for Christchurch and the New Forest"

This is a great location for exploring the New Forest and also the local area including Christchurch itself and also Bournmouth. The accomodation is modern and comfortable, well equiped with good quality fittings (except the naff kettle) and was lovely and clean on arrival. There are plenty of places to eat locally, the Toby Carvery just up the road was our favourite. There are supermarkets nearby for shopping and a convenience store right next to the accomodation, as well as a pub and take-away. The New Forest National Park begins just 5 minutes drive from the accomodation, with plenty of places to visit including Lyndhurst, Lymington and our favourite, the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu. Go there at the start of your week and you get free entry for your next visit - so we did!
Minor niggles: the second bedroom was a bit small really, and you need to put your rubbish out on a certain day or take it to the local recycling centre but I'm nit-picking. It's also not the best location for Swanage and the Jurassic Coast, it looks close on the map but during peak season we found it to be quite a long drive.
We did have a lovely week though, despite not having the best weather. Free Wifi was a bonus and worked well with easy instructions to keep the facebook generation happy.
