This is a very pleasant, bright and spacious bungalow which is situated in the quiet residential area of Hengistbury Head near Wick Village.
LOCAL AREA: This accommodation is only a few minutes walk away from the Riverside walks and boating activities, a public slipway and 3-par golf course and driving range. Also nearby are the sandy beaches at Southbourne-On-Sea and the nature walks at Hengistbury Head. A land train runs between Hengistbury Head and Mudeford Spit beaches. Wick is a village on the southern bank of the River Stour just before it enters Christchurch Harbour. Although only half a mile away from Christchurch Priory, the village is in the borough of Bournemouth, the town centre of which is 4.5 miles away. Wick today retains much of its historic character, including some very old timber framed buildings. Catch the Wick Ferry across the River Stour to Christchurch. Wick Fields are an important part of the Hengistbury Head Nature Reserve and Site of Special Scientific Interest. The meadows have not been improved for agriculture and are therefore regarded as ‘ancient grassland’, rich in flowering plants and rushes. An increase of birds has been reported here, including the rare Dartford Warbler and the Cetti's Warbler, and the Otter is seen here occasionally, as is the now 'uncommon' Water Vole. A herd of Galloway cattle graze the land; these cattle are ideally suited to the harsh conditions of the coast and estuary and help to manage the land, as was done in ancient times. Current attractions include the Wick Ferry across the River Stour to Christchurch. This is a very popular holiday location.
