About the property

Perfect location with easy beach access and excellent local amenities

Set in a tranquil location perfect for holidays or mini-breaks, the property backs onto the Chewton Bunny nature reserve with adjacent footpath and easy 5min stroll through the Bunny to the beautiful award winning Highcliffe beach with its numerous promenades and cliff side paths to explore. The beach is also ideal for bathing, body-boarding and surfing and has lifeguards during July and August. The excellent Cliffhanger Cafe sits at alongside the beach, or watch the sun go down over the water at local cliff top bars/restaurants.

This large two bedroom, two bathroom bungalow has ample space and is well equipped for a comfortable stay. The en-suite master bedroom has a king size bed and bedroom two has two single beds (can be pushed together). The comfortable lounge has a 43inch freeview TV. The dining room has double patio door opening onto the enclosed private rear garden. The garden has a large decking area with gas BBQ and table/chairs for outside dining. With beautiful summer hydrangeas and flowering pots it is visited daily by many wild birds including nuthatches and woodpeckers. Also watch out for bunny's on the front lawn!

Highcliffe High Street is a short walk providing a great range of food shops (co-op and tesco), chemists, bars, cafes, restaurants, butchers, bakers, deli, fresh fish stall etc. or travel a couple of miles to a multitude of large supermarkets and services around New Milton and Christchurch.

Within a ten minute drive you can visit Christchurch with its historic Priory and Monday market, Highcliffe Castle and tea rooms, Friars Cliff Beach, Avon Beach and Mudeford, excellent for crabbing from the quay, fishing trips or speed boat hire/rides. Here the small ferry will also take you to Mudeford Sands/Hengistbury Head. Just a couple of miles from the house you can also venture into the New Forest with its quaint villages, cycling and walking paths and of course the New Forest ponies. Adventure Wonderland, Lymington famous for its sailing (also Ferry to Isle of Wight), Exbury Gardens with its steam railway, Beaulieu and Bournemouth are also great places to visit.

If you fancy spoiling yourself or for a special occasion wander up the road the to 5 star luxury Chewton Glen Country House and Spa.

Whatever your age or holiday requirement, this is a great location to base your stay on the Dorset / Hampshire boarder.

About Helen Donaldson

I have worked in the midlands for many years but lived on the south coast as a child and absolutely loving coming down to Highcliffe to escape the rush of daily life. This property is being rented for the first time in 2018 but I also have a Gite in France that I have rented out for holiday lets over the last 15 years with excellent reviews and many return visitors (check out the reviews on Brittany Ferries property ref QA1196)

Helen Donaldson purchased this bungalow in 2017

Why Helen Donaldson chose New Milton

I love being able to just park up and walk to the beach and shops with everything I need within a 10 minutes. I also enjoy walking along the beach to Mudeford Quay (45mins) stopping off for a coffee or glass of wine along the way or for afternoon tea at Highcliffe Castle where there is often weekend events/entertainment. I enjoy cycling and the New Forest is just great.

On a summers evening there is nothing better than sitting in a cliff top bar watching the sun go down. The Cliff House at Barton on Sea has an excellent Gin and Beer festival 23-27 Aug 2018

I have also used Hinton Admiral station (1.5miles) to commute to Waterloo in 1hr50m

What makes this bungalow unique

Backing onto the Chewton Bunny Nature reserve the garden is visited daily by a variety of birds and also the occasional bunny.

  • 5 of 5

This property is a Home from Home, If you like walks to the beach, hear birds first thing in the morning, central to Highcliffe, New Milton, Christchurch, etc., this is the place to go. We did have the best week of sunshine for a very long time.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return.

We were kept fully informed of everything about the property,. and the

property had everything needed to enjoy the stay. Highly recommended.

Thank you for everything.

Best regards,

Val & Les and Friends

Relaxing, peaceful, very well equipped, charming garden well situated including close to good beach.

  • 5 of 5

Really great property, deceptively spacious, very well presented and a lovely sunny garden. Helen, the owner made us feel very welcome on arrival. Thoughtful touches including pint of milk in the fridge and the basket of dog towels, etc. Beautiful short walk through nature reserve to unspoilt beach. We enjoyed the lovely walk to Mudeford where there is a large, sandy all year round dog friendly beach which our Bassets loved. A family birthday brought us here and without doubt we will be back.

Beautiful bright airy bungalow

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay ( despite the weather) The bungalow was very spacious and light and the garden was well enclosed and very pretty. We loved all the birds visiting the feeders and the dog thoroughly enjoyed his early morning walk along the beach to Mudeford

Delightful bungalow in peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

Bungalow was clean, modern and had all mod cons. Lots of space. Met with the owner briefly who showed us round and was very helpful. Very quiet location even though the main road is not far away. Loved sitting by the patio doors watching the birds including nuthatches and woodpeckers. Also entertained by a very charming squirrel!! Short walk to the beach which also gives walks to Mudeford and the café on the cliff at Highcliffe as well as Highcliffe Castle. Small Tesco and Co-op in Highcliffe, a few cafes but not much in the way of evening meals although can recommend the fish/chip shop. Very much enjoyed our stay.
