Location description from owner

The England region

Hampshire is one of Britains most unspoiled counties, but its coastline is stuffed with seaside resorts and includes the great maritime cities of Portsmouth and Southampton, two of Englands 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 Britains 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 worlds 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 worlds 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 VIIIs flagship - sank with all on board in 1545 but was miraculously recovered from the ocean in the 1980s. The Victory was the flagship of Admiral Nelson and he died on board while HMS Warrior 1860 was the worlds first iron-hulled battleship. While Portsmouths 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 UKs 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 :-)

Gosport

With 24 miles of waterfront, 3 marinas, scenic walks and fantastic viewing points across to Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight. Gosport has a lot to offer, days at the beach, harbour, island and river boat trips, sailing, messing around in the water on funcraft, fishing either off the pontoons, the seawall, or on chartered boats. Keeping with the water there is the Submarine Museum at Dolphin, home to the Royal Navy's very 1st submarine (Holland 1) and the Explosion Museum of Naval Firepower at Priddys Hard, a 10 minute walk from The Dairy House which displays the navys firepower over the years and who's coffee shop looks out over the harbour.

We have a number of Forts within the area, part of 'Palmerstons Follies', the then prime minister who commissioned these buildings to deal with or prevent another French invasion, which subsequently never happened. These include Fort Brockhurst on land or The Spitbank Fort which sits in the middle of The Solent !

There are 3 Public houses in close proximity to The Dairy House. The Old House at Home is only a few minutes and can be seen from the drive, The Jolly Rodger is a five minute walk and has views over the harbour and The Windsor Castle is again only a 5 minute walk which has a pool table, darts board and occasional live music, all serving hot food.

Gosport’s great location and close proximity to Portsmouths Historic Dockyard, home to The Mary Rose, Nelsons HMS Victory and the HMS Warrior is only part of its appeal. With the addition of world class heritage sites, award-winning interactive museums and historic trails, plus Fort Brockhurst, the 17th Century Village and the Alver Valley Wildgrounds, Gosport is packed full of surprises and interesting places.

“Fantastic 70th Birthday Party”

Reviewed 25 Apr 2016

The property was wonderful, very well equipped with everything you could think of and the welcome pack of goodies was very thoughtful. Nice area with good views, especially from the lounge. Had Angela from The Recipe House in to cook Sunday lunch, this was very well received from all members of our group. They were so helpful and left everything looking as if they had never been in the kitchen! Have not received such helpful staff etc for a long time, will highly recommend Complete Holiday Homes to my friends. The Smith Party - April 2016.

“Ideal venue for a large, mature group”

Reviewed 24 Mar 2016

The accommodation was of a very high standard, at least as good as described. All of our party appreciated the facilities and a good night's sleep. I consider your procedures to have been universally excellent, from booking through to confirmation and arrival. Jo talked us through everything at the property and what to do on leaving, all very straightforward and professional. I am sure that we will look to you for future venues for our get-togethers.

“Great house”

Reviewed 22 Feb 2016

We loved the house and Laura was very helpful. I don't think I can actually think of anything that was missing. It was a great weekend and I would highly recommend it to anyone else! - White, February 2016

“Wonderful property and extremely helpful company/owner”

Reviewed 26 Jan 2016

We had a fabulous weekend at The Dairy House. The property is spacious and beautifully decorated. Our children are 2 and 5 and loved the games room. We walked to the Gosport ferry (a 45 minute walk with dawdling children!) and went over to the Naval Dockyard and Gunwharf Quays - loads to do and see. There was a difficulty with the original booking and Complete Holiday Homes could not have been more helpful in resolving it for us. Would thoroughly recommend this company and property.

“Fantastic Family Accommodation”

Reviewed 10 Dec 2015

The property was excellent. We spent the majority of our time at the property with the family who thoroughly enjoyed the facilities, in particular the games room provided, which kept everyone from 4 - 65 years of age entertained. The professional and friendly service of the staff has excelled all our other stays in self catering accommodation. This was a huge surprise for my husband's special birthday and the staff helped me keep it a secret, particularly Ken and Laura who were fantastic - thank you! - Collins, December 2015

“Absolutely Outstanding Property & Service - what more could you possibly want?!”

Reviewed 20 Nov 2015

I'd like to thank you and the team for making the rental process easy and secure. You guys have been great at handling our booking and kept us up to date at all times. The house itself was incredible! It's surprisingly huge, spotlessly clean and was equipped with absolutely anything you would need if it was your own home. It was spacious enough for 16 people to live, eat and sleep comfortably. The location of the house was good, we were close enough to Portsmouth to visit a city if you want night-life and far away enough for you to feel as if you're on a relaxing break. The house came with a helpful guide book including instructions on how to use certain equipment, taxi numbers and emergency numbers. Laura who met us at the house was lovely and amazingly helpful. She was so knowledgeable on the house and surroundings and gave clear and concise instructions on what to do when leaving the house. I'd recommend this property and your service to anyone - we are already looking for the next opportunity for us to rent it again! I can't praise you all enough. Thank you ever so much!!

“Ideal”

Reviewed 9 Nov 2015

The Dairy House is excellent for a large group of friends who are looking to have a fun time, with not only a games room but nearby Portsmouth only a short taxi and ferry ride away. Communication was very efficient throughout, we were greeted by friendly staff and the deposit was returned quickly.

“Well equipped house in great location, would recommend!”

Reviewed 30 Oct 2015

An excellent weekend was had by all staying at the property. We found the house to be well equipped and in perfect condition upon arrival. The heating is very efficient, almost too efficient and we had to turn it down and the beds were very comfortable. The tardis style fridge/freezer can hold more than it appears and also the double gas hob/oven was great. The house is situated in a good quiet location and the internet was coming in at approx. 20 meg which was more than adequate. We found that the whole booking process ran very smoothly, the staff at Complete Holiday Homes were attentive and levels of communication were perfect throughout the whole process. - Gareth Jones, October 2015

“Great house for a weekend away with a large group of friends”

Reviewed 19 Oct 2015

I stayed in the dairy house with another 17 friends and we had a great time. The house is in a lovely condition and everything has been thought of! The games room was great to watch the rugby in and play pool, the dining room was huge with a fantastic big table and the living room was a a good place to go for some peace and quiet. I am looking for somewhere to stay for a big family reunion next year and will definitely be adding the Dairy House to the list of potential options.

“Repeat Performance”

Reviewed 6 Oct 2015

The property was excellent and suited our group perfectly. There is lots to do, we visited the Explosion Museum which is just down the road, and the Spinnaker Tower. This is our second visit and it was just as enjoyable as we remembered it with the added bonus of beautiful weather. We are already looking forward to repeating the performance next year!
