Description from owner


The Dairy House is a superb sprawling detached Victorian house situated a minute from the foreshore of Portsmouth Harbour with views over the water from the large lounge and 2 of the 7 bedrooms. Set in the southern coastal town of Gosport, Hampshire with 3 nearby beaches, the house is only 1 minute from the foreshore of Portsmouth Harbour and is a 4 minute ferry ride to Portsmouth and Gunwharf Quays which has over 90 designer retail outlets, 30 restaurants/cafes/bars, a cinema, bowling alley, comedy club, casino, nightclub and The Spinnaker Tower, the UK's 2nd tallest publicly accessible building.

Each of the 7 bedrooms have superior quality kingsize double beds which can separate to create 2 singles and are made up with crisp white cotton linen and fresh white towels for each guest. 2 of the bedrooms are 'family rooms' which can sleep a 3rd and 4th person plus the 3 large sofas within the lounge convert to make extra beds for extra guests if required. For guests with limited mobility there is the choice of 2 bedrooms and a shower room on the ground floor.

The 5 high spec bathrooms all have quality fitted showers and the main 1st floor bathroom is also fitted with a sumptuous corner bath (complete with giant duck)!

The kitchen comes fitted with all essential mod cons, a large range style gas cooker, washing machine, dishwasher, an American style fridge freezer, etc and there is even a second fridge freezer if required.

The adjacent dining room is home to a splendid large oak 16 seater dining table with 16 matching leather high backed dining chairs plus a smaller overspill table and 4 chairs to allow dining for 20.

The lounge also seats up to 20 with binoculars in front of the large picture window to view the goings on in the Harbour and across to Portsdown Hill beyond.

In addition the property boasts a super fun games room with a pool/snooker table, table tennis table, a 50" TV & Wii plus plenty of games to keep young and old amused.

Finally there is the conservatory off the dining and games room where it is lovely to escape with your morning tea and toast and enjoy the first of the morning sun.

The Dairy House only accepts 'family groups' consisting of both adults and children during April - September and over New Year Period. However if you are an all adult group during April - September we can recommend our other properties - Stoke Villas (Listing ID: 288109) or The Gallery (Listing ID: 77831) which do not have the same level of constraints.

Our prices advertised are for up to 16 people but we can accommodate 2/4 more people within the bedrooms on John Lewis bed chairs or futon style bed cubes and we have 3 double bed settees within the lounge with the additional guests over 16 being charged at a rate of £25 per week/part week per head or we charge £25 per set of extra linen requested.

All linen and towels are provided and are changed weekly with a mid week maid service available on request. Child cots, highchairs and stairgates are also available at no extra cost. (Guests are requested to bring their own child's bedding please)

* Please note the following before booking :-

If your group consists of all adults (and no children) please contact us before booking as previously mentioned some dates within the year are not available for adult only bookings.

Reviewed 19 Dec 2019

The house was warm, welcoming and spacious. The view from the lounge was spectacular. Each room was. Beautifully equipped. The kitchen had everything we needed. It was a joy to cook a full roast for a large family on that oven. The beds were comfortable and the pool room fun. The only problem was the Wi-Fi didn't seem to reach the lounge,but that was not a problem as the house is conducive to sitting chatting or playing games, therefore bringing people together. The walk down to see the ships and the explosions museum was fun and not far so the older members could manage too. The Trip on the Sport Ferry to Port Solent and the Dockyard took no time at all and was most enjoyable.
