Attractions and places to visit | Travel and visitor information
The town of Emsworth lies on the border of Hampshire and Sussex. It is situated on Chichester harbour and was, in its early history, an important port for the area. Up to the nineteenth century it was famous for its oyster fishing fleet. The older part of the town around the square and the harbour has some lovely old houses and still retains the atmosphere of the past.
Warblington (1km) is believed to have been founded by the Saxons in the fifth or sixth century but all that now remains of the village is the parish church and the castle ruins. The tower of the church has two Saxon archways, the nave is thirteenth century and the wooden porch, fourteenth century. All that remains of Warblington Castle is a single turret and part of the gateway. This can only be viewed from a distance as it is now unsafe. It was a fortified manor house built between 1513 and 1526 and was dismantled by the parliamentary forces during the Civil War.

"Great stay/ lovely place - wish we could be there for longer!"
We had a great 2 nights in Emsworth staying at Martine's place. She was a great help, very quick to respond and we had no issues with the place. It would only have been nicer to have been able to settle in for a week rather than only have 2 nights :(.
The kids loved their bunk room and our party of 7 had plenty of space to enjoy!

"Wonderful large family house in a picturesque location"
We stayed at Harbourview for a new year break with a large group of friends. The house was beautifully presented and easily large enough for a large group (11). The weather unfortunately was atrocious but given the large size of the house we easily entertained 5 children playing hide and seek and various games, also the very large TV kept the kids amused. The kitchen was of an extremely high standard and large enough to cook and entertain. Given the weather we only sampled the large hot tub a few times but it was a great experience hot tubbing in the rain!!
To sum up, wonderful large house in a beautiful location.

"Beautiful, relaxing break"
We have just returned from a wonderful weekend at this property.
The location was great, in the pretty town of Emsworth, which had lovely walks, a few great pubs and a great fish and chip shop!
The house itself is stunning, with a huge lounge and dining room, ample for the 8 of us that stayed. The bathrooms were beautiful, and the kitchen very large and well equipped.
The hot-tub in the garden was a huge bonus. Martine (the owner) was lovely to deal with, she was very helpful, and always responded to my questions immediately.
If you book this home, you will not be disappointed!

"Lovely location and stylish modern house"
Overview: Very nice house, hot tub is a bonus, nice quiet area but still things to do. Would recommend and would stay again.
Had a lovely stay here, the owner is very friendly and helpful. The house is lovely and seems to have been recently renovated/extended. Downstairs is very open with lots of space and sliding doors which open almost all of the rear of the house to the garden. The kitchen is very modern and has everything you could need, probably more. The internet connection in the house is very quick which is always good.
The hot tub was great fun and is fully cleaned for every visitor we were told. It's also carefully positioned to not be overlooked by other houses easily.
Emsworth is a nice area and great for peaceful walks.
We did have a few niggles but think the owner is still getting settled into renting so confident these would be resolved before our next visit.
Overall great properly and would stay again.
Dear guest (sorry to be so impersonal but Holiday Lettings advise not to use names of guests),
you are correct the house is newly renovated and advertised. We were unlucky to have customers who caused much damage just prior to your stay but i am pleased to say our builder has not only rectified things but made some really good additions. I really appreciated you taking the time to give thorough feedback. As advertised this has been put it to good use, hopefully it can be seen from the photos there has been a lot of change since your stay. Thank you for being a great house guest and leaving the property so well.

"A lovely modern property with plenty of space, a large garden and hot tub"
We had a lovely hen party weekend with 9 friends. The open plan space downstairs was perfect as it meant we could be altogether all the time. The kitchen was gloriously well-equipped, the table large enough for all of us and the bedrooms had a very modern and fresh yet cosy feel. The bathrooms were great and felt luxurious- we wish we'd had a chance to use the huge bath upstairs! The outside space was fantastic and it was nice having a large table in the garden too for sunny breakfasts. It goes without saying that the hot tub was a real highlight. The property is situated about half an hour from West Wittering beach so we spent a day there, but Emsworth looked like a nice town so we would have been equally happy to have wondered around there exploring. We enjoyed watching a film on the massive TV and there are lots of comfy seats /sofas. Thank you to Martine for a very successful weekend without any problems and we'd come again!
Thank you.I have only just been informed by our neighbours as to how lovely you were. Credit where credit due, thank you for being good house guests! You promised you would be celebrating in a low key way and you kept to your word. Thank you again. I wish you all the best for the future. Martine
