House | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
A lovely late Victorian dock labourers cottage, coplete with the original boot scraper to the outside. The property has recently been sympathetically refurbished with stripped pine floors to the principle living areas. The Property has a front reception living room, leading through to the dining area past the charicteristic & rather steep stairs across the middle of the house. Upstairs you will find 2 bedrooms with pine beds, one large wardrobe in one room & smaller built in hanging space to both rooms. Bedding & towels are provided for your stay.
Through the dining room, which had a dining table & 4 chairs, the kitchen is fully equiped with oven, gas hob, microwave oven fridge & freezer. Pots, pans cutlery & crockery is provided for your self catering needs when not enjoying the many dining oppertunities that Southsea provides- you are just 5 minutes walk from Albert Rd, which we like to think of as the Southsea version of Brick Lane
Behind the kitchen is the small bathroom with a small bath with shower over and agin this was refitted during the refurbishment.
This house sleeps 4 people in 2 double beds.

Portsmouth is a unique island city, surrounded by the Solent and little more than 2 miles across, its waterfront life, whether historical or modern is never far away. Seafaring has shaped our local history and the sea still adds to the life of the city today; sailing, yacht racing - Fastnet and Cowes - diving and water sports attract many visitors every year.
Visit the Spinnaker with its stunning panoramic views, the Historic Dockyard steeped in maritime tradition or treat yourself to a shopping spree at Gun Wharf Quays Shopping Village with over 85 designer outlets. Dine al fresco and watch the comings and goings of the busy harbour or just enjoy a leisurely walk along the Esplanade.
Portsea Island is flat so is a cyclists dream and the cycle paths and lanes, while not perfect, do extend the full length of the Seafront and throughout the city. The local cycle hire shop is 10 minutes walk away and a lot quicker on the ride back.
Portsmouth makes an ideal place for a summer holiday whether you are a retired couple or a family with young children. Southsea seafront - don't miss Southsea Castle , Blue Reef Aquarium, Pitch and Putt, Canoe lake with
swan boats and Tenth hole cafe.
