The Central Southern England region
This area enjoys some of the best levels of sunshine in the U.K. Emsworth is situated right on the west Sussex/Hampshire borders, two of the most beautiful counties in England. Stunning coastlines combined with rolling countryside make it a unique mixture and it has numerous historical connections.
The nearby naval city of Portsmouth is where The Victory ship is berthed and Chichester to the east has its famous Roman connections, exxamples of which are exhibited at the Fishbourne Roman Palace.
Situated at the top of Chichester Harbour, Emsworth is a stunningly beautiful market town popular with sailors, walkers, artists and tourists. It has two tidal mill ponds, one of which abuts Bath Road, which are host to a variety of wild life. It is full of history, with a long established reputation for oyster fishing and boat building and still boasts traditional shipwrights and chandeliers. The sailing club is a thriving centre for sailing enthusiasts and the pretty streets have a fascinating mixture of different architectural styles. A gentle walk around the village, which has superb harbour views, gives a genuine feel for the past. There are excellent road links to Portsmouth and Chichester (15 minute drive to both approximately) and there is also a mainline station to London.
There is an interesting selection of shops in the town itself and there are numerous places of interest to visit in the area. These include Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth, one of the largest vantage points in Europe, the internationally rernowned Chichester Festival Theatre at Chichester, polo at Cowdray near Midhurst and horse racing and motor sports at Goodwood. There are also annual festivals at Chichester, Brighton and Arundel. In addition to the sailing at Emsworth there is also a super sandy beach at West Wittering which attracts wind surfers and surfers, as well as sun bathers.

This was simply lovely. Agreed we had good weather, but the accommodation is fab. Location is amazing right on a little pond near the harbour. The views are stunning. Everything is a short drive away in Emsworth village. We entered friends and family twice during our week long stay and they were suitably impressed, as we're we! Would definitely stay here again if in the area.
Thank you for your review and it is great to see that you enjoyed your stay at 6 Avocet Quay so much.
If we can be of any assistance to you in the future, we will be very happy to help.

Emsworth is a delightful little south coast port with good shops and restaurants, only 10 miutes walk away around the picturesque historic tidal mill pond . The house was very well appointed and comfortable, cosy even in October. Situated 50 yards from the shore in a very well kept estate and with wonderful views. So much to do in the area from Chichester to Southampton.... we made a different and interesting trip out every day for a fortnight, let alone the lovely walks and birdwatching in the area.
A perfect holiday.
