Sitting snugly on the southern coast of England in the beautiful county of Dorset is the wonderfully scenic town of Christchurch. One of the best things about a Christchurch holiday is that you can enjoy both an urban setting and a rural setting at the same time, thanks to the fact that the town is located on the border with the beautiful New Forest area. A Christchurch holiday rental house is the perfect place to simply relax and watch the world go by or get your head down after a busy day of sightseeing or activity.
A Christchurch holiday is jam-packed with activities for visitors to enjoy, particularly if you like nature, the sea or just the Great Outdoors in general. Amongst the activities available in the town and in the immediate area of the town are bay fishing, sailing, windsurfing, swimming, snorkelling, horse riding, tennis, golf, sledding, ice skating, bird watching, cycling and walking.
If you can find the energy to close up your Christchurch holiday rental house for the day and take a trip to another area of the country, then it is recommended that you head for the city of Salisbury, in the neighbouring county of Wiltshire. Salisbury was not officially recognised in modern times until the 13th century but it was used as a prehistoric settlement too. Attractions worth visiting in the town include the magnificent Salisbury Cathedral and the Salisbury & South Wiltshire Museum, which is housed in a beautiful listed building which dates back to the 13th century. Of course, if you are into all things mystical and magical, the legendary Stonehenge is only 8 miles north of the city.
If booking a Christchurch holiday rental house is dependent on the weather then you will be ecstatic to hear that you can expect to enjoy pleasantly warm summers and cooler winters. A Christchurch holiday is very popular during the months of July and August when the temperature during the day can reach a comfortable 22°C. The winter months of December and January see the temperature during daylight hours drop to between 4° and 9°C. The annual rainfall amount for the town is 23 inches.
Travellers on a Christchurch holiday can start their trip by arriving at either Bournemouth Airport (BOH) which is around 10 minutes away from the town or Southampton Airport (SOU) which is approximately 31 miles away from the town. Airlines that offer cheap, regular flights to these airports include Flybe. Passengers can depart from various UK airports such as Glasgow (GLA), Manchester (MAN), Newcastle (NCL), Liverpool (LPL) and Cardiff (CWL).
