The space

Mead Cottage is the perfect place to relax, a 200 year old character home with croquet lawn, large sitting room and lovely double bedroom. The quiet seclusion has the added advantage of being only 5 minutes from Bournemouth International Airport, 20 minutes from Bournemouth beaches and 15 minutes from the railway station. The famous Sandbanks beaches are about 30 minutes drive away. There is cycling and walking in the New Forest and along the Jurassic coast, and tourist attractions to suit every taste. And we will give you a great start to your day with a cooked breakfast, or something lighter if you prefer. We do love our animals, so be prepared to meet our Labrador and cat (who won’t be sharing your bedroom though!) and in the grounds a horse, 2 kune kune pigs and runner ducks. Airport transfers and parking available on arrangement. Wifi. We look forward to welcoming you!

Double bedroom, dedicated shower-room and toilet for personal use, dining room, sitting room and grounds.

Bournemouth station and Christchurch station 15/20 mins away. Bournemouth airport 5 mins. Buses to Wimborne and Bournemouth 10 minutes walk away.

Eve and Rob are great hosts who made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. We stayed for two nights while house hunting in the area and Eve even dug out detailed maps to help us find our way around. Robs's breakfast was delicious and really set us up for the day.

Eve and Rob’s house was exactly what we were looking for when we booked our stay. Amazing hospitality (nothing was too much trouble) and plenty of private space as a guest. As others have mentioned, the breakfast is great, and we particularly enjoyed meeting and greeting the many…
