Cottage With Garden Suitable For Two Couples Or A Family Of Four,
Serendipity cottage is a rural retreat with two country inns nearby, with walks through the fields from the house. The cottage sleeps four comfortably, especially with wash basins in the bedrooms. There is also a bed-sofa downstairs.
Please note : There is a Right of Way down the side of the back garden and across the terrace.
It is ten minutes drive to Mudeford perfect for swimming from the sandy beach, and crab fishing for the children. Christchurch Harbour offers beautiful views, and all types of water sports - windsurfing, canoeing, kite-surfing etc. with ferries to Christchurch town with its Priory, and also to Hengistbury Head. Christchurch is a busy little town with its Regent Theatre, shopping and its Monday Market. Visit the Nature Reserve at Stanpit Marsh for bird watching. The New Forest is great for walking, biking (hire a bike at Burley), horse riding, and plenty of country pubs to discover. Bournemouth and Poole are a short drive away with shops, entertainments and golden sands. Local fish sold at Mudeford, farm shops and 'pick your own' nearby.

About Margaret & Jeremy Allen, Bill and Alison Rickard.
Three of us like to go walking and bird-watching whilst Jeremy enjoys the windsurfing on the harbour, then meet up at one of the many cafes or pubs. We can then come back to the cottage and enjoy the peaceful garden, with its sun terrace. We love working on the garden. Because we use the cottage ourselves we have made sure it has every creature comfort and is fully equipped. Winkton has its two pubs, great if you don't want to cook, or to drive home; and its converient when we arrive late on a Friday evening.
Why Margaret & Jeremy Allen, Bill and Alison Rickard. chose Burton
We are two couples who bought Serendipity Cottage together eleven years ago because we love the area, with its combination of sea and forest.

A lovely cosy cottage
The cottage had a warm and welcoming feel to it and we were very comfortable during our stay. There were lots of lovely touches such as a cupboard full of games, a gas fire and useful items in the kitchen cupboards such as salt, sugar, rice, tea bags etc.
We would definitely stay here again
Thank you so much Susan for your lovely review. We are so glad you enjoyed the cottage.
