“Amazing cottage for family stay”

Reviewed 9 Jun 2015

We stayed here for one week. We were four adults and a toddler, and it was a great stay. The cottage is beautiful, and is a genuine cottage (a lot of holiday houses describe themselves as this but are really just townhouses), and had a lot of character. The walled garden was perfect for my daughter to run around in and she loved it too. The welcome pack was indeed most welcome, and was a nice touch. We managed to lock ourselves out of the house one day, and despite being away on holiday himself the owner managed to arrange for someone else to drop us round a spare key, which was great. The cottage is well located near Hengistbury Head, and it is only a short drive from lots of different tourist attractions. The neighbourhood is very quiet and peaceful, so we all slept very well, even the baby!

“Peaceful cottage in excellent location.”

Reviewed 23 Apr 2014

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.

“Comfy cottage with perfect location.”

Reviewed 15 Sep 2013

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.
