The property has 3 high specification bathrooms, a dining room boasting a pair of splendid large solid oak tables seating up to 22 and a super fun games room that really tops this property off offering table tennis, pool and card games plus the facility of an outdoor hot tub (at an additional cost depending on size and specification) if desired.
The 5 double bedrooms offer superior quality crisp cotton linen and fresh white towels with king size doubles or twin single beds depending on your preference. Each room also offers sleeping arrangements for a 3rd or 4th person and a bed settee and bed chair within the large lounge allows additional flexibility for extra guests.
The property has 3 high specification modern bathrooms with 1 on the ground floor and 2 on the upper floors all with fitted showers with the main bathroom to the upper floor having the addition of a large 'P' shaped bath as well as the showers.
The modern ground floor kitchen features a 5 burner range style gas cooker with double oven, a washing machine, dishwasher and a large American style walk in fridge freezer as well as all the basics you would expect to make your stay comfortable. The mood lighting fitted under the wall cupboards and units completes the look in this classically stylish kitchen.
The living room, also on the ground floor has a large John Lewis corner sofa, a 2 seater sofa and armchair with the 2 seater and chair also doubling as bed settee's if required plus additional seating in the form of occasional pouffes and chairs. The room has a wall mounted TV featuring an X box and DVD player with French doors opening on to the raised timber terrace going out into the rear garden.
To the rear of the property off the kitchen is a large heated conservatory to enjoy your morning coffee as the sun comes up or have fun playing table tennis, pool and card games!
The house is self catering but catered options are available on request and with it being centrally located in the town it has an a number of local restaurants and take away's close to hand offering a wide choice whether eating in or out. If dining out appeals we also have a number of other fine local restaurants, some with great coastal views and the nearby Gunwharf Quays has over 30 waterfront cafes/bars/bistros and restaurants where you can sit and watch the comings and goings in the harbour all set around the quayside.
The property has been restored and modernised to a high standard maintaining much of its original charm and features and is beautifully decorated with tasteful furnishings throughout plus all mod cons including Wi-Fi. To the rear the garden has a raised terrace, planted boarders, lawn area, a patio, trampoline and can also accommodate a hot tub if required plus off road parking for up to 6 vehicles.
Set in the southern coastal town of Gosport, Hampshire we have 3 local beaches all fairly close to the property and with the central location of the house to the town it means it is close to the ferry and the short 5 minute ride across the water to Historic Portsmouth and Gunwharf Quays which has over 90 designer retail outlets, 30 restaurants/cafes/bars, a 14 screen cinema, 26 lane bowling alley, Jongleurs Comedy Club, Grosvenor Casino, Tiger Tiger nightclub and the UK's second tallest accessible building The Spinnaker Tower. Gunwharf Quays offers great fun to young and old both with some fantastic shopping and tasty lunches during the day and sophisticated restaurants, wine and cocktail bars in the evening. If you wish to stay on the bars at Gunwharf continue into the night and the Tiger Tiger nightclub is open until the early hours with a late night ferry available to bring you back home to Gosport docking close to the taxi rank should you have run out of energy.
Whether you are looking for a property large enough for an special family get together or looking to arrange a reunion, hen or bachelor weekend by the sea Stoke Villas has a lot to offer.

The Central Southern England region
Hampshire is one of Britain’s most unspoiled counties, but its coastline is stuffed with seaside resorts and includes the great maritime cities of Portsmouth and Southampton, two of England’s largest and most historic ports. Inland lies the New Forest National Park and Winchester was the 9th century capital of King Alfred's Kingdom plus to the east is the glorious chalk-based South Downs. Just off the shoreline can be found the Isle of Wight and opposite is Gosport, a focus for both windsurfers and yachtsmen. Hampshire is also home to the famous National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, a cute bundle of picturesque villages and some of Britain’s most enchanting castles and great houses. The more modern city of Southampton lies on the edge of the New Forest and is a bustling container port. It is blessed with a deep natural harbour making it suitable for the largest of ships, including some of the world’s luxurious and biggest cruise liners. It was from here that the Titanic set out on its ill-fated maiden voyage in 1912 and before that in the Pilgrim Fathers embarked on their mission to America aboard the Mayflower. The city of Portsmouth became a major port when Henry VII built the world’s first dry dock there. Its Historic Dockyard is home to world famous ships such as The Mary Rose, HMS Victory and HMS Warrior. The Mary Rose - Henry VIII’s flagship - sank with all on board in 1545 but was miraculously recovered from the ocean in the 1980s and is now on display in the dockyards museum. The Victory was the flagship of Admiral Nelson and he died on board while HMS Warrior 1860 was the world’s first iron-hulled battleship. While Portsmouth’s cobbled old town contains hidden gems like its 12th century cathedral a more modern attraction is the Spinnaker Tower, which soars to a height of over 500 feet. The UK’s second tallest publicly accessible building, it offers stunning views over The Solent and for those who dare you can stand over a section of glass floor where you look down below or over the city, Gosport, the Roman Castle at Portchester, out to sea and the Isle of Wight and as far inland as the eye can see. Also, if you are looking for a day trip you can hop onto a ferry or hovercraft and pop over to the Isle of Wight or take a train at Portsmouth Harbour for a 90 minute ride to London Waterloo where apparently there's one or two other things to see and do :-)
Stoke Villas is situated within walking distances to Portsmouth Harbour and Stokes Bay Beach looking out over The Solent and accross to the Isle of Wight or you are a short drive to Lee on Solent and Hillhead's beaches where you are likely to find windsurfers, kite surfers and jet skiers. With 24 miles of waterfront offering fantastic views you don’t have to wander far to find the sea or you can also hop on a ferry for the 5 minute ride to Portsmouth or across the Isle Of Wight and beyond.
