Mudeford Lane HB5666
House | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
This delightful property is situated near the charming area of Mudeford offering a variety of cafes and pubs and the market town of Christchurch. Mudeford Quay lies just a short stroll away offering the ever popular family pastime of 'crabbing' from the quayside. The Quay is known for its eighteenth century smuggling activities and battle with the Navy. Close by is the famous "Run" where salmon are netted, and the sandy beaches of Avon Beach and Friars Cliff are popular with family holidaymakers. The Saxons knew Christchurch as Twynham - the place between the waters. The present name is taken from the great Norman priory church, which is the longest parish church in England, and is set amidst a jumble of little streets with quaint shops and restaurants. Alongside the Priory are ruins of the Norman castle. You may also try out ye olde stocks and even the ducking stool - the last one to be used in anger, and the Town Crier might tell you all about it. There are picturesque walks along Town Quay - the superbly restored 900 year old Place Mill is open to visitors, the very many swans and the river boat traffic add to the atmosphere here. Bournemouth is also short drive away as are the many local beaches of Mudeford, Southbourne and Bournemouth itself.

The West Country region
Dorset is a very popular holiday destination all year round. It offers beautiful rolling countryside, dramatic scenery, charming market towns, character villages and miles of some of the finest sandy beaches in the UK.
Bournemouth lies to the east of the country and offers seven miles of blue flag beaches. It is near the market town of Christchurch with its 11th century Priory Church, ruined castle and Saxon mill, and the stunning medieval New Forest.
The area caters for diverse interests – the popular buzzing beach resort in Bournemouth with its vibrant nightlife; the gentler pursuits of walking, wildlife and bird-watching in the nature reserves and national parks, and along the 20 miles of Bournemouth Coast footpath; and active pursuits such as cycling, sailing, rowing, canoeing, windsurfing, kite-surfing and sea kayaking. Popular also for touring, Southampton, the Isle of Wight, Salisbury and Stonehenge are all within reasonable travelling distance.
Dorset features some excellent museums, with world leading centres at Bovington (The Tank Museum, telling the history of military vehicles), and the Russell Cotes Museum and Art Gallery in Bournemouth. Other museums include the Dorset County Museum in Dorchester, The Red House in Christchurch, the Royal Signals Museum at Blandford, and the award winning Brewers Quay in Weymouth. Many smaller towns have their own local museums.
Within driving distance are the historic town of Christchurch and the vast New Forest National Park. Christchurch is a quaint, historical destination with beautiful riverside walks. Christchurch is ideal for the quieter holiday yet still having Christchurch High Street for shopping. There is a fishing quay at Mudeford, known for its eighteenth century smuggling activities and battle with the Navy. Closeby is the famous "Run" where salmon are netted, and the sandy beaches of Avon Beach and Friars Cliff are popular with family holidaymakers. The New Forest National Park, straddling the Dorset and Hampshire borders, offers peace, tranquillity, beauty and the magnificence you would expect of this National Park.
Also close by, with seven miles of golden sands and sparkling sea, the vibrant cosmopolitan town of Bournemouth has it all – a vast variety of shops, restaurants and holiday accommodation, buzzing nightlife and endless countryside with beautiful award-winning gardens and water sports galore.
