About Christina Trim

I am 52 years old and am married with two sons. I grew up in Gillingham, Dorset so know the area very well.

I have been married for 29 years and have lived at Stour Cross Farm for 25.

I started doing B & B in 1991 in the farmhouse until my second son was born in 2001. Now I run 4 self catering holiday chalets in the grounds of the farm.

I spend more time and money cleaning and refurbishing each chalet than I do in my own house but thoroughly enjoy it. It's so satisfying to know guests appreciate and have enjoyed their stay. The comments in the visitor books prove it.

I love animals especially dogs but unfortunately we cannot accommodate pets because of the farm animals. I have very little time to myself and as a family we rarely take a holiday. I wish life would slow down.

Why Christina Trim chose Dorset

Guests who have stayed at Duncliffe chalet tell me they could quite easily live in this property. The open plan lounge kitchen/diner enables all the guests to interact with one another without being excluded whilst cooking dinner or clearing the table.

I just love the French Blue coloured kitchen, it's so soft and goes with so many different colours.

What makes this chalet unique

NEW FOR 2015 !! Six seater hot tub with 36 swirling massage jets for a relaxing soak. Includes reclining position and Captain's chair plus bench seats. Enjoy a glass of wine after a long day touring and let those jets work their magic on aching limbs.

Absolutely fab chalet. Great for family get together. Super hot tub with great view not over looked. Very quiet and peaceful. Large games room for the young and better for the oldies remembering their days at the youth club.table tennis. Table football air hockey. Plenty of laughing. The whole farm is a great place to recharge your batteries. Can not thank you enough Christina .
