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)

Location

From the Owner

Set in the southern coastal town of Gosport, Hampshire The Dairy House is within close proximity to 3 nearby beaches and only 1 minute from the foreshore of Portsmouth Harbour plus a 5 minute ferry ride to Portsmouth and Gunwharf Quays which has over 90 designer retail outlets, 30 restaurants/cafes/bars, a 14 screen Cinema, Bowling Alley, Casino, Jongleurs Comedy Club, Tiger Tiger Nightclub and the iconic Spinnaker Tower. The tower is the UK’s second tallest publicly accessible building where you can stand on its splendid viewing platforms and look out over the water to The Isle of Wight and then back inland as far as the eye can see.

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

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 dont have to wander far to find the sea or you can also hop on a ferry for the 5 minute ride to Portsmouth or the Isle Of Wight beyond.

Travel:

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 5 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.

Further Details:

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 Britains 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.

Notes:

  • Notes on accommodation: 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 with a telescope positioned in front of the large picture window 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 restuarants 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: Outside to the rear is a raised patio area with table and chairs, lawn and hardstand for 2/3 cars or a small boat. The front drive has off road parking for another 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! Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: 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). Other: 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.
