Kings Cottage is a wonderful historic house set in the heart of the Hampshire sailing village of Emsworth. Just a few meters away from the water front and the popular town centre, this is a great location from which to enjoy all the region has to offer.

Originally built in the early 1700's, Kings Cottage is one of the oldest properties in Emsworth and was built by a local ship builder for himself to live in. Parts of the property have been used as a blacksmiths up until the 1930's and some of the history of the property can still be seen, including a water well set in to the patio in the rear garden.

At the front of the cottage are 2 open-plan sitting rooms which include a wonderful feature fireplace. There is a sofa bed here that provides additional sleeping accommodation to the bedrooms, if required. There is a well equipped kitchen which includes a cooker, fridge with freezer box, dishwasher and microwave. There is a good sized dining room which is ideal for large family meals and this overlooks the courtyard style rear garden. The rear garden includes a patio, a parking area (that could also double as a great badminton court) and a garden area. There is a shower room on the ground floor of the cottage, as well as small utility room with a washing machine.

On the first floor there are 3 bedrooms, 2 of which have king size beds with the other having twin single beds. There is also a large family bathroom. On the second floor, there is a further twin bedroom and it is from this room that guests will get the best view from the cottage, over looking the roof tops to Emsworth harbour.

The Hampshire 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.


Emsworth is a popular and attractive small town on the Hamphire and West Sussex boarder. The attractive town centre offers a great range of local shops, including 2 butchers, a fishmonger, a greengrocer, a bakery and a small supermarket. There is also a great choice of cafes, restaurants and pubs. Emsworth also has a beautiful little harbour with a mill pond edged by a foot path that makes for a delightful walk.

Within easy reach of Emsworth are the historic cities of Portsmouth and Chichester. Portsmouth is the home of the British navy and its historic dockyards are home to world famous ships such as the Mary Rose and the Victory. Chichester's history dates back to Roman times, but the city is dominated by the cathedral, which dates from 1076. Both these cities are also great for shopping and eating, with a wide range of independent and high street shops and eateries.

Other local places of interest include the Goodwood Estate, famous for its horse racing and internationally renowned motor sport events, including the Festival of Speed and Goodwood Revival. The beaches at Hayling Island and West Wittering are also within easy reach.

"lovely house and a good location"

I don't know why Emsworth isn't better known, it's a good place for a holiday - on the water, lots of shops and a good base for the area. This historic house in a quiet street is a great place to stay. Easy walk to the village centre and only a little further to the railway station. Kitchen, sitting and dining rooms all generous and well appointed. Bedrooms fine though the early morning light penetrates somewhat. Would be good to have wifi. Management helpful (the one minor fault was sorted within the hour). Recommended.

Thank you very much for your review. I agree Emsworth is a little gem for a holiday location. I wish we had more lets here! Thank you for your feedback on the wifi this is something I have put forward to the owner. Have a lovely Christmas and perhaps we shall see you back next year!?
