Best Things Nearby:We love to visit the New Forest, where you can see the New Forest ponies, beautiful countryside, and lovely thatched cottages. Abbotsbury Swannery is a delight. We have never seen so many swans in one area. Visit Corfe, with its quaint streets and the castle. Christchurch is on the doorstep where you can see the cathedral and stroll along the river. Visit Weymouth for somewhere a little larger, with its lovely sea front and Brewer's Quay. Lymington has a Saturday Market filling the main street with lots of bargains available. The harbour is a lovely place to sit and watch the world roll by. You can take the Isle of Wight Ferry from here. B...Read More

We disembarked at Yarmouth where there is a Tou...Read More

For those crazy enough, like ourselves, to get up at 4am and travel from Bournemouth to Weymouth for the ferry, it is possible to spend a day on the beautiful, relaxed island of Guernsey in the Channel Islands. We disembarked in St. Peter Port, the islands capital, and a busy, thriving harbour town. It was of benefit having stayed in Guernsey twice previously, and therefore we had our list of priorities of the places we wished to return to and also knew which direction to point our car as we left the dock area. The Timeshare Resort of La Grand Mare in Vazon Bay was one of the places we wished to revisit, having stayed there soon after the resort opened in 1993. Golf had been high...Read More
