The West Country region

Dorset is the most accessible part of Southern England from London and Europe, and yet is still one of the most rural counties in England. West Dorset is Thomas Hardy country, with rolling hills, fields and the rugged Jurassic coastline where fossil hunting continues to add to our understanding of the dinosaur age.

East Dorset contains the majestic Poole harbour, the second largest natural harbour in the world which inspired Enid Blyton to write many of her adventure stories & where every water sport is available, the world renowned beaches of Poole & Bournemouth, some of the cleanest in Britain, and the New Forest, Britain's latest National park, stretching from Ringwood in the West to Lymington & Southampton in the East.

Christchurch, Dorset

Christchurch - Just across the river from the cottage stands the historic town of Christchurch with its famous Priory, local weekly markets, a wide selection of individual shops, an abundance of great pubs with good food, award winning restaurants, horse-riding, tennis, golf, fishing, cycling, walking, sailing, museums, river cruises and a wide range of summer activities for children.

Hegistbury Head is a must see - people travel across the country to see this stunning and unspoilt area. Hengistbury Head is a special site of scientific interest and a protected nature reserve used as a cross-channel migratory point where birds feed and rest before continuing their journey. With views across Christchurch harbour and out to sea.

Bournemouth - On offer to any visitor are some spectacular firework displays, heritage fairs, classic car rallies, children's festivals…There's a packed calendar of events throughout the summer. Other event highlights include the Wimborne Folk Festival, Great Dorset Steam Fair and Bournemouth Live! Music Festival.

With seven miles of golden sands and sparkling sea, the vibrant cosmopolitan town of Bournemouth has it all – a vast variety of shops, restaurants, buzzing nightlife and endless countryside with beautiful award-winning gardens and water sports galore.

Some of the watersports include - Windsurfing, Diving, Wakeboarding, Surfing, Canoeing, Kayaking, Kite surfing, crabbing, cruises, fishing or try the exhilarating Shockwave speedboat. PLUS Europe's first artificial surf reef.

Bournemouth Air Festival is a must - The largest event of its kind. Taking place on 29th August – 1st September 2013, between Bournemouth and Boscombe Piers, see the world-famous Red Arrows, the Sea Vixen vintage jet, heart-stopping Black Cats Helicopter Display, the iconic Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and adrenaline pumping Eurofighter Typhoon.

Oceanarium at Bournemouth Seafront - Here you can explore the secrets of the ocean in an adventure that will take you to some of the world's most amazing waters.

Poole - There are the dramatic ruins of Corfe Castle (National Trust), the Swanage Steam Railway, the long sandy beaches of Studland and the fascinating Sandbanks Chain Ferry (single car crossing approx £3) within a short distance. Treat yourself to tea at The Haven Hotel with its conservatory overlooking the entrance to Poole Harbour and the chain ferry.

Spend some time on the beaches of Sandbanks Peninsula, Poole, famous for having some of the most expensive properties in the world. Drop into Jazzy's Cafe (Shore Road) on a Sunday morning and read the papers and people-watch. Harriet's Restaurant (Lilliput, Poole) can be for a special occasion. See the Fireworks Display Thursdays 10pm at Poole Quay.

For those interested in watersports, there is windsurfing tuition available at Whitley Bay, Sandbanks; sailing tuition at Rockley Watersports, Hamworthy, Poole; scuba diving off Swanage and sea fishing trips from Poole Harbour.

Water-skiing, wake boarding and para surfing also take place in Poole harbour. Mountain biking is a popular activity in the nearby Purbeck Hills.

New Forest - The New Forest is an area of outstanding beauty with open countryside freely inhabited by donkeys, cattle and ponies. As a national park, the whole area is open for visitors to enjoy. Within the park are the quaint towns of Lyndhurst, Brockenhurst, Beaulieu and Burley all worth a visit.

The beauty of this area is that the coast is also on the doorstep with the stylish town of Lymington a couple of miles away with it's bustling high street and harbour. The town is always lively with a great range of shops, coffee shops, restaurants and bars. There is a frequent ferry service from Lymington to Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight.

"Peaceful cottage in excellent location."

When we arrived at Quality Cottage we were greeted by a roaring fire, a welcome breakfast pack and a beautiful vase of fresh flowers in the window which was a lovely touch. The rest of the stay lived up to our initial reaction, the cottage is homely and well equipped with a pretty garden. The walks around the cottage are excellent and we enjoyed using the Wick ferry across to the Captains Club and Jack and Whites for a spot of lunch in Christchurch
Great cottage, thoroughly recommend.

An ideal location with walking access to the Christchurch water taxi and Hengistbury head. Very well maintained and a nice garden for the kids. I stayed here three weeks and would do so again.
