Very Good

“What an amazing view.”

Reviewed 26 Jul 2017

Lovely Rental with amazing views over the harbour. Lots to do in the area and ferry travel to Portsmouth via the dockyard all attraction ticket was well worth it. Bathrooms a little small but very clean. Wildlife interesting - oystercatchers and foxes could be viewed from the garden area. View of Nelsons flagship and the Spinnaker Tower from the highest balcony - we also enjoyed watching the ferries come into Port.

“Lovely Accomadation”

Reviewed 11 Apr 2017

We booked this cottage as it was close to explosion museum where our daughter was having her Wedding reception. We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay . Well equipped , spotlessly clean , nice quality fixtures and fittings and fantastic views towards Portsmouth. The letting agents Complete Holiday Homes were first class , and someone was waiting to hand us keys on arrival . I would highly reccommend .
