Our home

My home is in Christchurch, Dorset on the South coast of the UK.
It is an old house, built in the early 1800's and has a lot of character.
I have 3 bedrooms, although one is currently used as a study. I have a working fireplace in the lounge, and gas fired central heating that heats the house and supplies hot water on demand. It is a very warm and loved home with an open plan kitchen/diner, that looks out onto our interesting and established garden.
I live very close to the town and its excellent public transport and services.

Who we are

  1. Hi, I am Trevor
    I am in my forties and live here with my very affectionate cat,who just needs a bowl full of food every now and then to keep her happy.She is independent apart from that, with a cat-flap to let herself in and out of. I can arrange for neighbours to feed her if you were away for a time while staying. I am a Carpenter and Joiner who has his own business.
    I am very keen on travelling, and open to visit anywhere.
    I hope that I can get to arrange a visit to somewhere that is your home, wherever it may be, and that you can come to visit mine.
    I am very proud of our home,and I will look after yours as if it is my own.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

I live in Christchurch, which is an Historic town in Dorset.
It is a five minute walk from the train station which is on the London Waterloo to Weymouth main line. ( Under 2 hours to London in one direction, just over an hour to Weymouth in the other direction)Also
on the rail line within easy reach are Southampton, Bournemouth, Dorchester, Poole, Portsmouth and many places of interest on the South coast. Very good if you like watersports, wind/kite surfing. Lots of lovely walks, either along the coast or in the forest.
Christchurch itself is just on the edge of the New Forest, less than half a mile from the coast and has its own Quay which offers boat trips and fishing trips. The Jurassic Coastline is easily reached by car in less than an hour. In the town there are plenty of bars and restaurants, and also a cinema which dates to 1931, and shows current releases as well as live music and theatre productions.
The house is 3 miles away from Bournemouth and its beautiful sandy beaches and entertainment.
The Isle of Wight is also a day trip away, either by train and ferry, or by car ferry.
I live very close to the banks of the River Avon, and the famous Royalty Fishery, for anyone that likes coarse fishing. has lots of useful information on the area.
