Christchurch Harbour House

Christchurch Harbour House is a spectacular curved contemporary 4 storey house on the edge of Christchurch Harbour, near Bournemouth on the South Coast and on the edge of the New Forest. The contemporary large cottage is located within the grounds of the Christchurch Harbour hotel. The harbour is ideal for dinghy sailing, windsurfing and kayaking, we have a jetty and small slipway for sailing dinghies, kayaks, rowing boats and windsurfers.

Mudeford Quay is located on the mainland side at the narrow mouth to the harbour, with the famous beach huts on Hengistbury Head just across the narrow run of water. This immediately opens out to a wide, shallow harbour, where Christchurch Harbour House and the Christchurch Harbour Hotel lie on the bank. The harbour has a clearly marked deep channel and from here you can go upstream into Christchurch, a most interesting and pleasant town, where the river becomes three and you can continue to explore up-stream in a dinghy or kayak, or hire a small motorboat from Christchurch Quay.

Mudeford has village shops, cafés and pubs, and just a few minutes walk from Iridium brings you to Avon beach, a wonderful sandy beach with facilities including a beach café. Mudeford adjoins Christchurch which has a large priory church and grounds with numerous footpaths meandering between river and town through historic parts which can make a very interesting afternoon’s walk. There are ancient ruins which you can visit on one riverside, and within a few minutes be in the town, then through to the main quay on the other side where the quayside park with a bandstand and excellent children’s playground and new free waterpark, public slipway for motorboats and foot ferry offering river cruises, really has something for everyone.

Christchurch in turn adjoins Bournemouth, which was built as a ‘new’ resort town in Victorian times and has one of the best sandy beaches on the South Coast, as well as the shops and nightlife the famous seaside town has to offer.

As well as the excellent spa and pool facilities on site, which can be booked in advance directly with the spa reception at the Christchurch Harbour Hotel,  there are two restaurants including The Jetty (formerly Rhodes South), and the hotel restaurant. Booking is advised before your stay to dine at either restaurant. Alternatively book our chefs and waiters to provide a full restaurant experience in the cottage’s own large kitchen/dining space or al fresco on the top deck with views over the harbour.

The four storey house was designed to make the most of the views from its harbourside location and has large decked balconies on all four levels, with views across the hotel lawn, and over the harbour to Hengistbury Head beyond. The lounge is on the top floor, with the kitchen/dining space directly below, so the living spaces have the best views.

The largest bedroom has wide folding sliding doors to it’s decked balcony which is on the first floor at the back of the house, with views over the hotel lawn to the harbour. The other bedrooms are at the front of the house and have Juliet balconies looking into the front gardens of the crescent. A ground floor room affords access to a large ground level deck giving you plenty of private outdoor space.

In addition to the delightful catering available on request , breakfasts and buffets are available by ordering before your stay, we are happy for our chefs or caterers to chat directly with you to ensure they meet and exceed your requirements and expectations. Or self cater in the wonderful kitchen with Corian work surfaces and Gaggenau appliances. There’s dining for all guests together in the kitchen/dining space with full width sliding/folding doors to the balcony.

All bedrooms are en-suite double/family rooms, with Villeroy and Boch suites, all with a shower and the largest with a bath and shower. All have balcony, Juliet balcony or full deck.
Patio furniture is supplied so you can appreciate the outdoors and the harbour views.
Local shops opposite, many more in Christchurch – just a short drive, walk, or boat ride away!

by Paul Chattenton on Christchurch Harbour House

We had a fantastic stay at Iridium. The house is very spacious and well laid out. Double bedrooms throughout all with en-suite. Very clean and fully equipped with everything you should need for your stay. Mudeford Quay is walking distance which is great fun to while away a few hours crabbing. For location its perfect. I will definitely be back.
