The Central Southern England region

Set in the 'sunny south of England' Hampshire benefits from a milder climate than most areas of the British Isles, being in the south with the climate stabilising effect of the sea, but protected against the more extreme weather of the Atlantic coast. Hampshire has a higher average annual temperature than the U.K. average at 9.8 degrees C to 12 degrees C, and higher than average sunshine at over 1541 hours per year.

Hampshire is a popular holiday area and offers something for everyone with its unspoilt countryside:

Look no further than the New Forest National Park which lies within it's borders with it's abundance of wild ponies, or the 160 km. long distance bridleway running the whole length of the South Downs National Park from the ancient city of Winchester to the white chalk cliffs at Eastbourne.

Stunning coastlines:

The Needles on the Isle of Wight with its magnificent cliff views across The Solent

Bustling market towns:

Winchester and Petersfield offer tempting local produce at their special Farmers' Markets

Some of England's most picturesque villages:

Emsworth with its long history of fishing, oyster dredging, milling and boat building (P.G. Wodehouse of Jeeves and Wooster fame lived in Record Road, Emsworth for ten years. A blue plaque marks this house).

Of course Hampshire has a long maritime history. Two of England's largest ports are Portsmouth and Southampton, 25 miles along the coast, where Titanic sailed from in 1912.

The nearest train station is just a few minutes walk away from the house where a direct route to London gives you easy access to it's famous attractions, Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, The London Eye, to name but a few.

Days out with the family include the unspoilt sandy beach at Hayling Island - enjoy a ride on the Hayling Seaside Railway, the Blue Reef aquarium in Southsea, Paultons Family Theme Park at Ower in the New forest, or you can walk through H.M.S. Alliance, the U.K.'s only surviving British WW2 era submarine and discover for yourself what life is like living under the sea.

The Isle of Wight is easily accessible from Southsea via car ferry, sea catamaran or by using Europe's only passenger hovercraft you can set foot on the Isle of Wight in less than 15 minutes. Cowes Week is a must for all sailing enthusiasts, widely recognised as the largest sailing regatta of its kind in the world. Cowes Week welcomes around 1000 boats, 8,500 competitors and in excess of 100,000 spectators every year.


Southsea is guaranteed to appeal to visitors of any age.

It is a seaside resort located within the naval town of Portsmouth. It boasts a 4 mile long promenade with views across The Solent to the Isle of Wight. There are two piers and Southsea's Victorian seafront extends through to Old Portsmouth, where Portsmouth began. Originally a fortified garrison town built around the 15th century it was of strategic naval importance. Today it forms the charming heart of a landmark waterfront city. You can explore the original fortifications, Camber Docks, Spice Island and then continue on to the historic Naval Dockyard..

Portsmouth Historic Dockyard is one of the top ten herritage attractions in the U.K. and a great day out for young and old alike. Home to the World famous historic ships Mary Rose, H.M.S. Victory and H.M.S. Warrior, Portsmouth offers visitors the chance to explore 12 museums, from the birthplace of Charles Dickens, to the Southsea Castle where King Henry VIII watched the sinking of the Mary Rose.

Portsmouth Harbour boat tours are available every day in July and August and offer the visitor an informative and closer look at the Royal Navy ships in harbour at the time of the tour.

A red vintage London routemaster bus tour is a must to learn about the history, humour and hardships of Portsmouth and lasts approximately one and a half hours.

Are you brave enough to walk across the largest glass floor in Europe? If the answer is "Yes", then the 170 m. high Spinnaker Tower is a must with it's awesome viewing gallery over Portsmouth Harbour and the surrounding area. This unique attraction has a viewing platform giving 360 degree views, and on a clear day you can see up to 23 miles over to Chichester, the South Downs and the Isle of Wight. There's no need to rush away either, you can sit back and take in the view in the 'Cafe in the Clouds' on view deck 2.

Soak up the sea air and enjoy nature's playground with Southsea's free attractions in July and August on Southsea Common. The colourful International Kite Festival and the Southsea Carnival are just a taste of what is on offer. For music lovers why not take a picnic on a Sunday afternoon and relax in a wonderful open air atmosphere, listening to a fantastic variety of music at the Southsea Bandstand.

"Everything we needed for a fantastic weeks holiday"

A very comfortable clean house,central for southsea and Portsmouth,don't need to take the car out as railway station only 5 mins away or comfortable walking distance.Plenty of space we had 8 st… More

A warm welcome personally from me is something that I enjoy giving to all my guests. I feel the personal contact from the owner is an important part at the start of your holiday and I am so pleased you felt this from me. Leaving the car behind and enjoying a train ride from the local station only a few minutes walk away, is always a popular choice with my guests. It was a pleasure meeting you and I look forward to meeting you all again in the future.

"excellent choice"

We were a party of nine, including a baby, and we enjoyed our stay very much. The house is big enough, clean, with a nice patio. It is a close 15 minute walk from Gunwarf Quays, a close 5 minute walk … More

I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay at my holiday home. I believe providing a very clean house is an important part of your holiday. The close location to the nearest supermarket makes for a convenient stay too. Easy access to London via the local train station, just a 2 minute walk away offers an interesting day out.

It was a pleasure to meet your family. Thank you for your recommendation.

"Great place to stay!"

We had a great time staying in the house. The bedrooms are very spacious.
The owner provided us with everything we needed. The location is brilliant because it is very close to everything. The host was very welcoming and helpful.

I am delighted you had a lovely holiday, the central location certainly is a winner with all my guests, making it so easy to leave the car behind and explore the locality on foot. I shall look forward to welcoming your family back again in the future.

"Fantastic !"

The house was brilliant just what we needed with 4 children aged 5 and under.
Everything you need for if you plan on cooking in and close enough to everything if you fancy going out.
About 30 mins walk to the seafront but that is with young children and only 15-20 min walk away to gunwarf quays and the city centre.

Close enough to asda to stock up on any shopping needed ( 5 mins away in car )

Very freindly welcome would highly recommend to anyone!.

"The house was brilliant" - thank you for such excellent feedback, we pride ourselves with offering a spotlessly clean house in a very convenient location - as you say - there are a fantastic number of places to try if you feel like a meal out, and with Asda so closeby stocking up with food is easy too. We're delighted the whole family had such a great time. Thank you very much for highly recommending us.

It was a pleasure to have your family stay at the holiday home, yes, with a 2 week stay you can really get to know the local area as well as days out further afield. The central location does make this a very popular place to stay. So glad you had a lovely time, and thank you for your comments.

19 Aug 2011



We had a wonderful time. everything we needed was within waling distance, beach took us about 45 minutes but we had small children stopping to look at everything! local shop 30 seconds away, big Asda 10 minute walk.

There is a small park within a 5 minute walk as well, perfect for giving energetic children a quick burst whilst waiting for lunch or dinner.

the owner was just around the corner which was handy at one point, but she didn't intrude at all.

the house was comfortable and exactly what we needed. Have already recommended to many people!

Thank you very much

"The house was exactly what we needed" - we are delighted to know that this house suited your family's needs so well - with it's complete refurbishment and redecoration throughout in July 2012 we have had very positive feedback from clients concerning the cleanliness and standard of interior decoration. The closeness of the park, just around the corner is handy isn't it? Thank you so much for already recommending the house to other people.
