About the Owner

I have been renting out my cottage in Christchurch since 1996. When I bought the cottage I went for character and position. I have clients who visit the cottage year after year and are very attached to it and love the position, so close to the Quay and so pleasant to sit in a cafe and look at the river, the boats and the wildlife. It is also just a couple of minutes' walk into the town and it many restaurants and coffee shops.

I bought the apartment in Nice in 2002 and it is also full of character and in a wonderful position. Such an easy 2/3 minute walk to the Promenade through the beautiful gardens of the Musee Massena. All that Nice has to offer is on the doorstop.

The studio is in an excellent position as well and just 3 minutes' walk to the Promenade des Anglais.

Lovely Cottage in a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband, me, and our dog made three returned again this year, and had a very enjoyable and relaxing holiday. The cottage is very clean, well equipped, and parking an added bonus. The ideal location means easy walking distance to the priory, river, shops, and restaurants. Many Thanks Pauline, we're already looking forward to next year!

So good to be back at the comfortable cottage again. Very good to find somewhere that accepts our dog and so close to both the Quay and the town for walking. Very well sited and a wonderful week in a very comfy home. Thank you Pauline and we hope to return again.

So glad we stayed here

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late on a cold and wet evening, to find a superb cottage that was warm, scrupulously clean and in excellent decorative order. We felt at home immediately - and the sun shone every day thereafter!

The furniture was in good condition and very comfortable, especially the beds. The bedding was fresh, spotless and a pleasure to use. All the equipment worked and it was an easy house to live in.

It has good parking at the front and a neat little garden at the rear.

Facing south, the cottage gets the full benefit of the sun and we had little need for the central heating - although this worked very well.

The cottage is located 200 yds from the Priory church and the centre of town. It was wonderfully convenient for sight-seeing and eating out. One can stroll to the waterfront, 300 yds from the front of the the cottage. The ocean beaches are a short drive away.

Despite being so close to the heart of the town, it was very peaceful at all times of day. The neighbours were friendly too.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would return to the cottage without hesitation. Thank you.

Owner's Response: I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay, Tom. It is always so rewarding to have feed back like this as I do try to make the cottage as pretty and comfortable as possible.

A Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We thought this cottage was charming, so near to all the local facilities and river. The cottage was well thought out and had everything you needed, as we went there in December it was warm and cosy too!

Christchurch Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was booked direct with the owner and it all went very smoothly. The cottage was well equipped with everything that we needed and was clean on arrival. The location was excellent for our purposes with good access to bars and restaurants as well as a beautiful leisure harbour. We had a thoroughly relaxing holiday and I would recommend this property to anyone.

As an aside we will be using Owners Direct in the future.

The cottage is so convenient, being so close to everything. Also it has parking for 2 cars on its own driveway. This is essential as parking is always difficult.
