About Ros and Mike O'Callaghan

Sailaway is a our family holiday home which is a well loved haven in a beautiful part of the country. Our favourite activities are windsurfing and canoeing on the harbour; enjoyed by both ourselves and our children. The sandy beaches are walking distance away so ideal for children. We also love the peace of walking in the New Forest and enjoying a relax afterwards in the traditional pubs. The furthest we have walked along the cliffs is to Keyhaven, but we are keen to try further. There are many excursions inland and along the coast and some guests even do a say trip to the Isle of Wight.

Ros and Mike O'Callaghan purchased this house in 1997

Why Ros and Mike O'Callaghan chose Mudeford

To be near the sea and have an escape for the weekends and holidays.
