Christchurch Harbour Hotel & Spa, Christchurch, Dorset
Set in an enviable position on Christchurch Harbour and boasting wonderful sea views, this hotel has plenty to keep guests entertained - a spa, indoor pool, two restaurants and even kayaks for exploring the harbour. Lounging by the water admiring the view may well occupy most of your time, but if you do venture out, the beach and the charming historic town centre are a short walk away. Further afield but worth exploring are The New Forest, Brownsea Island and the Jurassic Coast's fossil-rich shoreline. Bedrooms vary greatly in size and price from snug doubles to luxurious harbour-view rooms; all have quality linen, White Company toiletries, coffee machines, fluffy bathrobes and complimentary gin and sherry to make you feel suitably spoilt.
Nearby Hengistbury Head Nature Reserve is a haven for wildlife and a site of great archaeological importance. The visitor centre is excellent.
The town of Christchurch is sandwiched between Bournemouth and the New Forest, and has a pretty harbour as well as nature reserve.
By car: around 3 hours from London, 2 hours 30 minutes from Bristol and 4 hours from Birmingham. Free parking available.
By train: trains from London to Christchurch take around 2 hours. The hotel is 10 minutes' drive. thetrainline.com
