Mudeford Quay itself is a fully working quay that leads on to the sandy Avon Beach. Hengistbury Head is just across 'The Run' and is famous for its colourful beach huts, history and beaches. It is the perfect spot for those who love the water, beach or wish to partake in the many watersports available in the harbour.

Location description from owner

The England region

Christchurch - the sign says 'Where Time is Pleasant' and it's right.

From the lively Monday Market to the great shops and restaurants along the highstreet it is a great coastal town. It is a short trip in the car or by the Ferry that leaves from Mudeford Quay.

Christchurch Priory is the longest parish church in the country and is surrounded by beautiful grounds, riverside walks and Christchurch Quay.

The Priory is a must see and is steeped in history. The Priory contains the 'miraculous beam' said to be placed there by a carpenter locals believed was Christ himself.

The New Forest

The New Forest is a National Nature Reserve situated on the south coast of England. The landscape is a mix of heathland, grassland, bogs and woods. Domestic animals are permitted to roam freely throughout the Forest.

Visit Beaulieu Motor Museum, catch a ferry from the pretty town of Lymington to the Isle of Wight or just enjoy the many cycle trails, walks and forest villages.

Bournemouth

The famous seaside resort with miles of beaches, loads of restaurants, bars, clubs and great shopping. Just 9 miles away it has so much to see and do.

Mudeford

The Old Customs House is part of an historic 16th century Grade II listed building and forms part of the building known as 'The Dutch House'. It is thought to have been originally built by Dutch workers who were employed to dredge the harbour and make the river Avon navigable from Christchurch to Salisbury.

It is actually sited on Mudeford Quay itself and 1 of only 7 cottages on the Quay Head. It is still a working Quay with fishing boats venturing out most days so why not say hello to Pete on boat Deja Vu (SU21) and see how his day has been? If you fancy testing your skills out and bringing the catch home yourself pleasure fishing trips are available direct off the quay or we can help you organise in advance. There are also many pleasure trips to be had or if you fancy a thrill then why not hang on to your seats on the Bay Blast rib ride.

The Quay is also famous for its crabbing from the quayside (crabbers quay)! and has a children's play park, fish stall, Cafe, The Haven House Inn and a large green area which is perfect for picnics, ball games and kite flying.

Avon Beach is a mere 10 minute walk from the cottage or you can catch the ferry to Hengistbury Head directly from the Quay and visit its fantastic beaches and view the most expensive beach huts in Britain!

Christchurch harbour is a safe haven to learn and try watersports from Windsurfing to Sailing and the Highcliffe sailing club is based on the Quay. There is also an active RNLI lifeboat station which practices launching weekly so you are almost bound to see their rather unusual lifeboat launch and recovery system in action!
