On the outset, the cottage looks small, but was I wrong. The downstairs rooms were large, the sitting room was comfortable. We spent most evenings on the dinning table, drinking wine, playing cards or doing a puzzle. The main kitchen is equiped with the basics....More

Interaction with guests
The full details of key codes, WiFi codes, etc will be sent direct to our guests within 2 weeks of their holiday. A hot tub can be hired but must be pre-booked. You can arrive anytime after 3pm on the first day of your holiday or we can arrange for you to leave suitcases, etc earlier in the day if that helps you. There are many lovely pubs in walking and short drive distance so you can easily arrive, early while we are still cleaning the property, leave your items and then go off to the pub for a relaxed lunch. During your stay you can easily contact us and we will be able to answer your questions. I live only 5 miles away so can pop over or my assistant is on call as well - our mobile numbers are on the noticeboard.

About the neighbourhood
Ferndown is a quiet residential town just north of Bournemouth surrounded by countryside. It is near Wimborne Minster, the River Stour and is just a short distance from the vast expance of the New Forest. The well known Hobby Craft Centre and Haskins Nurseries are only 1/2 mile away. Dudsbury Golf course is at the end of the lane while the famous Ferndown Golf Course is a mere 1 away. There are over 8 well known golf course in the area as well as a dry ski centre just 3 miles away. The centre of Bournemouth with its 7 miles of golden beaches, numerous night-clubs, wonderful shops and boutiques, Ocenarium, and cinemas is only 5 miles from Birchcroft,
Getting around
Birchcroft is in the country so a car is essential. However some of your group could arrive by train at Bournemouth Central Station about 6 miles away or by plane at Bournemouth International Airport - 3 miles away. Birchcroft is positioned near several main routes so access to the main areas of interest is easy. You can drive West to the Jurassic Coast with Corfe Castle and Poole Harbour, Brownsea Island, Monkey world, Bovington Tank Museum, etc. Drive North to New Forest, Salibury Plain and the Fleet Air Arm Museum at Yeovilton. South to the golden beaches of Bournemouth, Sandbanks and Hengistbury Head. East to Lymington, Beaulie Motor Museum, Marie Rose and Victory ships at Portsmouth. Really you need more than 1 week to see it all.
