About the property

House / Bungalow in Highcliffe, Christchurch, Near Bournemouth, Dorset, England - Great Location Just 5 Minutes Walk To The Beach And Backing Onto Chewton Bunny Nature Reserve

Great location with a short walk (approx 5 minutes) to beach, shops (including fresh fish stall and local butcher and delicatessen), cafe bars, pubs, restaurants (Chinese, Indian, Fish and chips). Good base for many other local beaches, historic Highcliffe Castle, Christchurch town, the New Forest, Bournemouth, Poole and Lymington where there is also a ferry service to the Isle of Wight. This 3 double bedroomed semi detached bungalow is designed to be versatile so you can choose 3 double bedrooms or any variation of one double and any combination of 2 to 4 single beds. There is a large comfortable lounge/diner with free view TV and a DVD player with a selection of DVD's you are welcome to use. The kitchen is fully equipped with all you need to be self sufficient including a fridge freezer, electric cooker and hob. The garden is very private with patio furniture and as we back onto the Chewton Bunny Nature Reserve it is very peaceful and full of the local birdlife including the odd woodpecker or 2 if you're lucky. Local amenities are Highcliffe golf club, beaches for swimming, surfing or sailing. Avon Beach and Mudeford are close by and whether cycling, walking or driving you won't need to travel very far in any direction before finding excellent restaurants and bars for relaxing and watching the sun go down. Chewton Glen Country House is a stones throw away & Christchurch town approx 5 miles away has an historic Priory plus Monday market for local produce, clothing and other stalls. You can walk or cycle the 2.5 mile coastal path from the cliff top to the castle, through Steamer point nature reserve to Mudeford Quay. We are lucky to be in the unique position of being right on the Dorset/Hampshire border meaning that you are a 5 minute walk to the beach as well as just a 10 minute drive into the beautiful New Forest famous for the ponies wandering around freely which really makes it a must to go and visit during your stay.

About Tanya Jordan

We have been lucky to have lived in Highcliffe for the last 16 years and having relocated from Herts/Beds we fully appreciate all the wonderful things available to you when living by the sea.

We have over the years taken full advantage of long beach walks / cycling in the forest / sea fishing / outdoor music events and many other things that the locals are able to take advantage of every day when living in a holiday resort.

Tanya Jordan purchased this bungalow in 2014

What makes this bungalow unique

We have recently moved to our current property and it has a completely self contained 3 bedroom semi- detached bungalow attached to it that we are able to let out for holidays so that others can enjoy all the things we do about this great place. The location is fantastic as we back onto the Chewton Bunny Nature reserve and we really are a 5 minute walk to Highcliffe Beach.

Lovely Christmas

  • 5 of 5

We had a Lovely Christmas at Bunny Hop. The bungalow was excellent. Warm and cosy very well equipped with everything we needed to spend a family Christmas there. Tanya and Pete were very friendly and helpful.

The position was excellent close to the beach, shops and restaurants.

Family heaven

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely family holiday at Bunny Hop. The bungalow is a bright, airy, clean and comfortable place to stay. We took 3 small children and they loved being there. A very warm welcome awaited us on our arrival. Tea, coffee, milk, water, chocolates and wine everyone was happy! The short walk to the beach was through a lovely wood very child and buggy friendly. The beach itself was clean. The children had hours of fun! We visited the new forest, a day trip to the Isle of Wight on the ferry which went from Lymington. We also visited the all important Peppa pig world, all places with in a close distance. We ate fish and chips from Daniels fish shop, all enjoyed these. Tanya and Pete were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for them. A lovely family holiday where many memories were made. Thank you both.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Arrived with group of friends for a catchup weekend away, leaving husbands/partners and city life behind. We were not disappointed, Bunny Hop was the perfect place to stay. The bungalow was very clean, beautifully presented and we were welcomed with a complimentary bottle of wine, biscuits as well as finding tea/coffee etc available. Close by we were able to enjoy picturesque walk to the beach through the woodlands, and beyond to the fishing village of Mudeford, venturing out to Brownsea Island on our second day. We enjoyed meals at The Cliffhanger, Daniels fish & chips both close by as well as a superb lunch at The Jetty in Christchurch Harbour, here we indulged in the freshest of seafood and the most delicious of cocktails. I thoroughly recommend Bunny Hop as the place to stay if you want an enjoyable place to stay. Thank you Tanya and Pete for such friendly customer service.

Hop down to Bunny Hop

  • 5 of 5

Bunny Hop is just like it is described on the website. A lovely, fully equipped, clean and comfy bungalow; arriving to find milk, water, tea, coffee, a bottle of wine and a pack of cakes, started the holiday off well for all concerned. The owners never intruded but were available should the need arise and always had a friendly wave and smile if they saw you. So nice to walk through the woodland path to the beach, which is child friendly, shops are within an easy walk from the property, as are the numerous restaurants. I would thoroughly recommend Bunny Hop to my friends and we will definitely be using again. Thank you Tanya and Pete.

Wonderful Bunny Hop

  • 5 of 5

We were welcomed with much appreciated milk, coffee, tea, a bottle of wine and cakes. A clean airy Bunny Hop, plenty of room in bedrooms, living room and bathroom/toilet. The electric power show was excellent. Our twin grandchildren loved the quiet location and only 5 minutes walk to the sandy beach. Local shops nearby including. Tesco express. Tidy garden with table and chairs for outside dining/evening drink. Would certainly recommend Bunny Hop and hope to visit again.
