If you love the great British seaside but prefer to keep it simple, Mudeford could well be your place. And if you want to stay in comfort just 200 yards from a long sandy beach that isn't too busy, then the Bolt Hole could be a great base for you. <BR><BR>Tucked into woodland at the seafront Sandhills Holiday Park and with a heated pool, bar and other facilities, the Bolt Hole is a luxurious new holiday hideaway. Forget the car and lose yourselves in sand dunes amongst Britain's most famous beach huts, catch crabs with the kids on the harbour wall or take the land train to Hengistbury Head.

What a wonderfull place to stay, next a beautifull but not busy beach. The bolt hole was in a quiet location and had everything you could need. Would recommend to anyone that enjoys a chilled out holiday. The out door pool is a must as the water temperature was 27 ° C. Christchurch and Boscombe are good for a trip...

Mudeford is a fantastic place and The Bolt Hole is perfectly situated for use of the outdoor pool, visiting the quay, crabbing or taking the ferry over to the huts on Mudeford sandspit. There are so many beautiful places to walk to and great restaurants to eat in. We bought a lot of seafood from the fishmongers on the quay...
