About the property

Lovely cosy cottage style house with its own parking space and private garden next to a sports centre and golf course, with the beautiful historic town of Christchurch a 5 minute stroll down the road.

This home is a real character 19th century cottage style house with strange shaped rooms, exposed beams and a spiral staircase. It was recently fully refurbished and so is now light and bright.

As you walk in there's a place to hang your coats along with a downstairs cloakroom. On your right you will walk into the cosy lounge and have access to the fully equipped kitchen and light conservatory.

As you go upstairs you will find the dressing area, shower room and double bedroom with hotel quality bedding for a comfy night's sleep.


The house is just over the road from 2 Riversmeet Leisure centre and Golf course so if you fancy a morning swim or a trip out onto the green you are perfectly placed.

Equally if you're a fan of wonderful food or great coffee, you are moments away from Christchurch and its wide array of cafe's and restaurants.

The walk there takes just 5 minutes and takes you over two bridges over the rivers and past the stunning ruins of Christchurch Castle.

If you have children there is plenty to do at Christchurch quay with its water play area and boat rides or, if you have your dog numerous river side walks and open fields.


Buses run straight across the road from the house going to Bournemouth and the train station is around a 20 minute walk or 5 minute drive away.

Christchurch is an excellent base for exploring all the wonderful things Dorset has to offer including the Beaches, New Forest and Jurassic walks along the coast.

Very comfortable and homely cottage with just a few small suggestions which may benefit.

  • 4 of 5

We found Purewell cottage very comfortable for our needs and it was easy to feel at home there. The kitchen was marvelous and we appreciated all the storage space for the bedroom and kitchen.

We had requested that family members would stay with us one night and there was plenty of bedding and towels. Although in the end our family did not stay, we appreciated the provision to do so.

I have just a few little suggestions :

The shower looks like it needs a bit of a revamp and is not in a very good state.

It would also be useful to have some directions for using the shower as although the tap design is probably very common in England and possibly Europe, I have never experienced one similar in New Zealand, Australia or the US.

(It seemed like the safe that I never really cracked!!!)

In the week I was there I didn't one have a shower at a comfortable warm temperature. My husband finally got his right on the last day!

A hook or two in the bathroom would also be very handy.

My other thought is that a mirror in the bedroom or dressing room area would be a great help. Maybe the one in the lounge could be moved upstairs?

Last but not least.......a bottle opener would have been handy!

Wine glasses (thank you) - but no bottle opener - while on holiday - was a minor crisis for a while!!!!

None of this spoiled our stay and I only mention it because I believe you find feedback useful. I am sorry for the delay in writing this but as we have been traveling this is now the first opportunity.
