Family house in Christchurch, England near river, historic town and sandy beach

4 bedroom house in historic Christchurch, a delightful town on the south coast of England surrounded by beautiful countryside and coastline. Easy walking to town centre and river, with restaurants, cafes, bookshop, leisure centre, swimming pool, 900 year old Priory church and small theatre/cinema. Easy cycling to safe, clean and sandy beaches.

Our family home is situated on a private road overlooking school fields, with off road parking. Recently modernised kitchen and bathroom. Free wifi. Large private garden with trampoline and full size table tennis.

The popular holiday resort of Bournemouth, the New Forest National Park and the Jurassic coastline are a short car or bus ride away. Stonehenge, Thomas Hardy's Dorset and Corfe Castle (setting for Enid Bylton's Kirrin Castle) are all within an hours drive.

Walk to the nearby train station to catch the regular direct train to London (2 hours), where you will arrive at Waterloo station, a few minutes walk from the London Eye and Big Ben.
