Overview

About the property

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 as previously mentioned some dates within the year are not available for adult only bookings

Guestbook comments from the manager

"The Dairy House was decorated more like a boutique hotel than a holiday rental" (Emma Keane)



"Amazingly clean and beautifully decorated to a very high standard!" Such a great house set in a peaceful area. We have been looking for a house like this for further stays so really chuffed to find such a gem! A really welcome feel - the welcome basket, baby cot and table laid was so thoughtful. Very comprehensive staff and administration, can't wait to come back!" (Skippy's Weekend Away)



"I just wanted to say thank you so much for letting us rent such an amazing property and we all had a fab time. I will most definitely recommend this property to anybody and most probably go back there myself. As for booking, the property, the staff, and our stay at the house were all fantastic. There is not one negative thing I could say about any of it." - (Kerry Shenton)

Notes:
The house has been restored and modernised to a 5 star standard maintaining much of its original charm and features with beautiful decoration and tasteful furnishings throughout plus all mod cons including Wi-Fi + Wii and binoculars within the lounge to view the goings on in the Harbour and across to Portsdown Hill beyond. The house is self catering but catered options are available on request and with 3 local pubs serving hot food within 5 minutes walk you have a good choice to eat in or out. If dining out is your choice we also have a number of other fine local restaurants, some with great coastal views and Gunwharf Quays has over 30 waterfront cafes/bars/bistros and restaurants where you can sit and watch the comings and goings in the harbour. If you wish to stay on the bars at Gunwharf continue into the night and Tiger Tiger nightclub is open until the early hours with a late night ferry to bring you home to Gosport. Outside to the rear is a raised patio area with table and chairs, lawn and hardstand. The front drive has off road parking for 3/4 cars or there is on road parking to the side or the front. Set in a quiet location the property is ideally positioned for walks along the foreshore or access onto the water itself and the short ferry ride from Gosport lands in Portsmouth Harbour and Gunwharf Quays which is home to the Spinaker Tower from where you can stand on its splendid viewing platforms and look out over the water to The Isle of Wight and back inland as far as the eye can see. The area is also home to a number of forts, 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 waters between Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight! All linen and towels are provided and are changed weekly with a mid week maid service available on request. Child cots, highchairs and stairgates also available at no cost. (If cots are provided guests are asked to bring their own childs bedding please). Off the dining room is a super fun games room with pool table, table tennis and a 50" TV with Wii, plus a long slim conservatory where you can sit to enjoy the first of the morning sunshine or escape for peace and quiet.

A House for all seasons and reasons

  • 5 of 5

This has been our third visit to this property. We have always been delighted, not easy to achieve being a family of 15 aged from 7 to 77. We particularly enjoyed the short walk along the road to see the new Aircraft Carrier. Fort Brockworth was also only a short walk away and was enjoyed by everyone.

A very well equipped property - we loved our stay!

  • 4 of 5

Thank you we much enjoyed our stay in this interesting house. It was obvious the house was very well equiped for large numbers even though we did not need to use everything.

The bedrooms were very nice with lovely good quality beds and crispy white sheets and towels - and plenty of them! The games room at the back leading on to the garden was also a great success for us

The owner welcomed us and showed us around even though we arrived well after schedule on the Friday evening. We were all in all very impressed by the information given both before our arrival and during our stay.

Clean and well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

We have enjoyed a family get together. We found the house had everything you could wish for. Only a couple of things to note in the kitchen were the kettle and oven tins could do with updating.

We all loved using the games room and the large dining table was ideal for some special meals altogether.

Car: recommended

The Dairy House is situated within easy walking distances to Portsmouth Harbour and Stokes Bay Beach looking out over The Solent with views over to the Isle of Wight or you are a short drive to Lee on Solent and Hillhead beaches where you are likely to find the windsurfers, kitesurfers and jet skiers.

With 24 miles of waterfront and fantastic viewing points you don't have to wander far to find the sea or you can also hop on a ferry for the 4 minute ride to Portsmouth or the Isle Of Wight beyond.

The nearest airports are Southampton, approximately 30km away, or Bournemouth, around 80km, and Gatwick and Heathrow are the nearest London airports. You can train into Portsmouth Harbour and hop straight on the 4 minute ferry to Gosport where we are situated only 2km away from the terminal or alternatively into Fareham which is 7.5km from the house. A car is not essential but if you do drive we have off road parking and non paying, non permit street parking.

The Dairy House is named as such as it was built by a local dairy owner who built his business in the area and the house had dairy connections up until the mid 1990's when it was bought by its current owner. The house is situated close to historic Portsmouth Harbour with its naval connections going back to Henry VIII, whos flagship the Mary Rose sank just outside Portsmouth Harbour in 1545 but was raised in the early 80's and is now being restored in the dockyard which is also home to Nelson's famous flagship HMS Victory 1765 and the first iron hulled warship HMS Warrior 1860.

Hampshire is not just all about coastline and is proud to be one of Britain's most unspoilt counties, home to the New Forest National Park plus part of the glorious chalk based hills of the South Downs. The National Motor Museum at Beaulieu and Hampshires other maritime city of Southampton are within the Hampshire boundary and Winchester was the 9th Century Saxon Capital of King Alfred's Kingdom, which are all within easy distance of the house.
