The local area

Christchurch is a delight; a harbour-side town of character and charm located where the Avon and Stour rivers flow into the Christchurch Harbour. Positioned between Bournemouth and the New Forest, Christchurch is a lively town with mainline station and a good variety of independent and national brands (from Boots to Waitrose). It has become something of a foodie destination: Chock-a-block with cafes, pubs, and restaurants, such as The Jetty on Mudeford Quay. It is also the venue for a popular food and wine festival that attracts some high profile chefs. Other attractions include the priory, castle ruins, nature reserves, nearby beaches and Mudeford Quay with ferry service to Mudeford Spit (with iconic beach huts) and Hengistbury Head. A wide range of activities are available such as cricket, golf and watersports. Another benefit for the families are the schools - rated at least ‘good’ by Ofsted, while Christchurch Infant School, Mudeford Infant and Junior Schools and Twynham Comprehensive are all graded ‘outstanding’. An attractive range of property includes architect-designed new builds, fine Georgian houses and modern townhouses, some in waterside locations and with views across Christchurch Harbour.
The situation

Hurn Court, formerly a private school was also the country estate of the Earl of Malmesbury, the construction of the main house commenced in the early 17th century on the site of the summer hunting lodge which belonged to the Monks of Christchurch Priory. The adjoining and surrounding parkland grounds amount to about 10 acres and apparently extends down towards the River Stour. Christchurch town centre is only about four miles to the South with Bournemouth four miles to the East. The Castlepoint shopping centre is only about a mile away which offers a superb variety of shops including several major high street names. Hurn Court is surrounded by open farmland and in total there are 35 individual units which include eight properties within the main house and a further eight in the adjoining wing of which the Coach House is one of them.
