LOCAL AREA

With Christchurch Harbour on one side and the open sea on the other The Gatehouse truly offers a location with something for everyone on the doorstep. A year round slice of coastal heaven.

AVON BEACH
A beautiful coastal area with easy flat access from The Gatehouse to the beach and prom. Avon Beach offers idyllic views of Mudeford Bay and the Isle of Wight. RNLI lifeguard bathing areas, beach hut hire, ice creams, fish and chips, The Noisy Lobster deli, bakery and shop as well as their stunning seafood restaurant offering all day dining and cocktails. You may never want to leave!

MUDEFORD QUAY
Step outside The Gatehouse and you can walk a few minutes along the Avon Beach prom to the picturesque and historic Mudeford Quay. Offering the ever popular family pastime of crabbing from the quayside, water sport hire, children’s play park, fishing trips, boat trips to Christchurch quay, waterside cafe, ice cream, beach shop and the historic Haven House Inn. The perfect British seaside pub to enjoy Fish and Chips and a local ale while watching the sunset.
From the Quay you can also take a five minute ferry ride over to Hengistbury Head and Mudeford Spit.

HENGISTBURY HEAD AND MUDEFORD SPIT/SANDBANK
Described as one of the most important Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) in England, it offers year-round coastal walks, 300 types of birds, a visitor centre to learn all about its archaeology and iron age history, stunning views and unspoilt beaches. Not to mention its famous colourful beach huts and The Beach House Café to reward yourself with a warming coffee after a winter walk, sunny seaside Pimms or lunch with a view. Mudeford Spit and Hengistbury head truly are something unique.

HIGHCLIFFE CASTLE
Built between 1831-1836 the picturesque Highcliffe Castle is a 30 minute coastal stroll along the beach prom, through Steamer Point Nature Reserve and castle grounds. As well as the beautiful Grade 1 listed building itself, the grounds are perfect for a picnic on the castle lawns, or kids adventures amongst the pine trees. There is a tea rooms and car park for those who prefer to drive. Many events and exhibitions are hosted at the castle during the year so worth looking at their facebook page or website to see what’s on during your visit.
The adjacent Steamer Point is a 24 acre cliff top designated local nature reserve that makes for a lovely walk from The Gatehouse to Highcliffe Castle, with a small information centre enroute along the path that has interactive displays for children to play and learn.

CHRISTCHURCH
As well as a thriving high street, the beautiful town of Christchurch offers the historic priory, castle ruins, picturesque gardens, river walks, boat trips, boutique shops and restaurants, quayside open air splash park and a full calendar of events throughout the year, including the Christchurch Food Festival. Walk along the river through Stanpit Marsh Nature Reserve from The Gatehouse to Christchurch, drive, or even take a pretty boat trip from Mudeford Quay to Christchurch and soak in the scenery.

NEW FOREST NATIONAL PARK
A short drive from the Gatehouse is the New Forest National Park. Covering 219 square miles of beautiful scenery for walking, cycling or slow scenic drives. You’re sure to spot the famous New Forest ponies and picturesque thatched roof country pubs on your visit.

BOURNEMOUTH
Bournemouth town centre is just a car ride away for high street stores, tourist attractions and family entertainment - oceanarium, cinema, crazy golf, Pier, Pavilion and Bournemouth International Centre (BIC) for amazing shows and concerts.

DOGS
Fully house trained dogs are welcome (maximum 2)

The Gatehouse location benefits from access to many dog friendly walks and open areas. In winter months, dogs are allowed on all the nearby beaches. In the summer months the property is adjacent to a section of the beach (Gundimore Beach) that allows dogs all year round. It is also just a short walk via the Avon Beach/Friars Cliff promenade with dogs on lead to Highcliffe Beach and Steamer Point Nature Reserve where dogs are also allowed all year round. This walk leads to the beautiful Highcliffe Castle grounds where dogs are welcome and you can continue the coastal path past the castle to the Chewton Bunny Nature Reserve with a stop at the Cliffhanger restaurant which is very dog friendly!

From Mudeford Quay dogs can also go on the regular ferry crossings over to Hengistbury Head and Mudeford Sandbank area, where again dogs are welcome year round.

The beach areas that do not allow dogs in summer months (1st May-30th September) still allow dogs on leads onto the prom to enable you to walk along and access the dog friendly beach areas.

The 65 hectare Stanpit Marsh Nature Reserve is a slightly further walk, but a fabulous way to walk from The Gatehouse into Christchurch... you can always get the ferry back! The reserve does require dogs to be kept on leads.

These are all walks directly from the Gatehouse, in addition we have the fabulous New Forest National Park just a short drive away for many many more amazing walks.

5 star review - We had a fantastic time in Mudeford. The house was beautifully furnished and spotless. It had everything we needed and a lovely welcome pack too. Everything we needed for a family of 4 and large dog. Great location so we could ditch the car for a few days and enjoy the beach and noisy Lobster. Swimming at Avon beach was great. “Louise” was so helpful when we left something at the house. Thank you! We’d certainly recommend The Royals and will hopefully return.

5 star review - The Gatehouse is a stunning property less than a hundred metres from Avon Beach. It is immaculate inside, with high quality fittings, furnishings, bathrooms and kitchen. Communication with Louise was very good. The view from the upstairs lounge of the sea is fantastic. We had a wonderful stay over the New Year with our 2 dogs. I would highly recommend staying here.

Awesome Property in a great location - 5/5 - We loved our stay at the Gatehouse from the minute we arrived to the minute we left we had an awesome time, property was spotless, quirky and everything we needed for our break. Nice secure garden for the four legged friends, TBH I am amazed and grateful that such a fabulous property allows dogs. Lovely beach less than a minutes walk which you can see from the lounge and a great restaurant just around the corner The Noisy Lobster what more could you want. Thank you Louise, we would definitely return.
