The village of Mudeford, with its quaint charm, attracts many visitors each year and it has a nostalgic air of bygone times.

There is a local ferry from Mudeford Quay across to Hengistbury Head, which is a fascinating place thanks to its wide variety of wildlife habitats, archaeology and geology. It also has long sandy beaches, which are great to explore all year round.

The New Forest National Park is just a 15-minute drive and is a must for anyone visiting this area. It is renowned for its beautiful scenic walks and wild ponies roaming freely. Bournemouth, with great shops and beaches, is just along the coast, as is Poole with its large natural harbour. Christchurch, with its priory and selection of eateries and shops, is also nearby. Further afield to the west is the world famous UNESCO World Heritage Jurassic Coastline, with Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door.

Julie, July 2021

"We had a lovely family holiday at Quay House. The house is amazing, very spacious, clean and comfortable and it has everything you could wish for. I would highly recommend it to anyone considering staying there."

Alisa, June 2021

"We had 5 adults and 3 children. The group fitted the house well with one child in a travel cot. The weather was good so the garden was welcome. The walk to the sea took 15 to 20 mins with the children. We all enjoyed the holiday, and may, perhaps, visit Quay House again."

John, June 2021

"Perfect house for a family get away with open plan living space and nice enclosed garden. Children's playpark just round the corner and walkable to the harbour and beaches. Several supermarkets within a short drive."

"We had an excellent time"

Meera, May 2021

"What a beautiful house! Every possible thing has been thought of, never needed a thing that wasn’t supplied. We were very lucky with the weather and spent most of our time in the sun trap corner in the garden. Would highly recommend 殺"

Lesley, April 2021

"We have just come back from a week stay and it was perfect. The house is well equipped for adults and children. We had a 2 year old and a 9 month old and they / we couldn't have asked for more. The house was clean to a high standard, storage in all rooms and towels and bedding provided. The welcome pack was a nice surprise and lovely touch. Covid wise, we all felt safe and clean. The house is located close to all amenities. We visited Peppa Pig World, Sandbank etc and the location was perfect. Ample parking, good WiFi, sky sports was an added touch!!! Would highly recommend Quay House and will hopefully return one day! Thanks to the owners who we contacted prior to our visit and we extremely helpful. Perfect house, perfect stay and perfect home from home holiday."

"Great house,facilities and amenities great,only thing wrong interior re walls could do with a little maintenance and light at front door very rusty and a bit off putting on initial arrival otherwise no other problems.Our guests also found upstairs shower too small.All in all a great find and would definitely return."

Linda, September 2020

"Very comfortable, extremely well equipped holiday home, for families we were a party of 6 adults and 2 children. I loved the mugs and egg cups.2 fridges, one freezer, washing machine came in very handy, good to have the circular drier and pegs in the garden. Bedrooms good size and walk in wardrobes were great, joys loved hiding in them.Garden furniture great,didnt have the weather to utilise every day. Bedding and towels good quality nice to have a flannel included, showers good, bit of advice don't have any water running when using shower upstairs. Think a bigger recycling bin would be good, we were buying bottles of water as we didn't like the tap water we soon filled the bin up!!Overall a very enjoyable stay at Quay house and would definitely recommend."
