Formerly the vicarage at the Priory in Christchurch, Quay House has been transformed and refurbished into a stunning property with beautiful Georgian features, making this property a fantastic home from home in the centre of the bustling town of Christchurch.
Overlooking Christchurch Priory and its grounds, this attractive house sleeps up to 15 guests in six bedrooms, all beautifully decorated and excellently furnished to a high standard over three floors. The property overlooks the beautiful Christchurch Priory and its grounds.
Quay House is a quirky yet grand house with excellent attention to detail throughout. The kitchen/breakfast room on the ground floor is an excellent room for entertaining whilst the large lounge is the perfect, comfortable place to relax after a busy day exploring the local area.
Centrally located in the heart of Christchurch, Quay House is ideally situated for a visit to the eastern side of Dorset. Bournemouth, Poole and Lymington are all just a short drive away as well as the ancient New Forest National Park which has excellent walking, cycling and horse riding opportunities.
Just stone’s throws away are numerous shops, eateries and boutiques including a local cinema/theatre, boat hire and crazy golf.

There are also numerous restaurants including Loch & Quay, Soho and The Kings Hotel, all serving a variety of excellent food. The High Street plays host to the annual Food Festival and excellent weekly market (Mondays).
The quayside, just a short walk away, hosts many events throughout the year including the fantastic jazz festival, Stompin’ on the Quomps which takes place in August and the annual Classic Car Show.

We thought the overall cleanliness was outstanding. I met the cleaners as we left and thanked them personally. The situation of the property was ideal for shopping and restaurants. The Priory is well worth a visit. One comment. We were very grateful for the Christmas trees and decorations. It would have been nice to have been prewarned because, as young children were coming, we had a car full of our own decorations which were totally surplus, Excellent idea but pre knowledge a great help. Regards Robert Ficken
We loved the house. Some of our group found the Church clock disturbed them at night, although it didn’t bother the rest of us. We all thought the location excellent. Parking was a bit of a problem as we were six couples, so six cars and the nearest car park would not allow you to pay for more than twelve hours.
Quay house is stunning accommodation finished and furnished beautifully. We were a large group of golfers staying for 5 days. The bedrooms were comfy, the living space huge and ideal for the whole group to socialise together. Christchurch has a couple of good pubs and several excellent restaurants which we visited too. The golf courses are also fantastic in this part of the world. All in all top class.
