Nice location but requires maintenance

  • 3 of 5

We have been looking for an accomodation for our trip to Portsmouth and this seemed to be a good compromise. Walking distance to the ferry to Portsmouth but with a nice view and a bit out-of-town. The house at first sight seems to be lovely and the view from the garden is stunning but unfortunately it turned out to be not well maintained. Bed linen with stains, window leaking, pots and pans completely worn out, carpets need to be cleaned, lightbulbs not working, etc. Spoke to the agency and they professed that the property will be refurbished soon what would definitely move this property back up to a 4star rating. If so a lovely house for exploring Portsmouth and its attractions.

Location

From the Owner

Close proximity to Portsmouth's Historic Dockyard, home to The Mary Rose, Nelsons HMS Victory and the HMS Warrior is part of its appeal. With the addition of world class heritage sites, award-winning 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. The Dockyard and the Spinnaker Tower are only a short 5 minute ferry ride away and with the retail outlet and leisure complex of Gunwharf Quays there is a range of options for those looking to explore, shop or simply relax and watch the boats go by.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Southampton at 19.9 Miles Nearest Ferry : Gosport Ferry at 0.5 Miles Nearest Train : Portsmouth Harbour at 1 Miles Nearest Motorway : M27 at 6 Miles Nearest Beach : Stokes Bay at 3 Miles Car: not necessary

Coast/Beach:

Situated on the foreshore of Portsmouth Harbour with all its comings and goings or you are a short drive to Stokes Bay, Lee on Solent and Hillhead beaches looking out over to The Isle of Wight where you are likely to find a variety of sailing enthusiasts, windsurfers, kite surfers and jet skiers. With 24 miles of waterfront and fantastic viewing points you don’t have to wander far to find the sea whether you want to go in or on it or just sit and enjoy the view.

Travel:

The nearest airports are Southampton, approximately 32km away, or Bournemouth, around 78km, 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 a 5 minute taxi ride away from the terminal so a car is certainly not essential.

Notes:

  • Outside: The property is ideally positioned for walks along the foreshore or access into town and the short ferry ride from Gosport lands in Portsmouth Harbour and Gunwharf Quays which is home to the Spinnaker 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! Inland within a 5 minute drive we have The Wildgrounds or at Hillhead the Haven Nature Reserve and within a half hour drive The New Forest National Park and then the glorious chalk based South Downs. Alternatively you hop on a ferry for a day trip to The Isle of Wight or France! Utility Room: The separate utility room houses the washing machine, iron, ironing board etc and is situated off the hallway opposite the downstairs cloakroom. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: All linen & towels are provided and are changed weekly with a mid week maid service available on request. Child cots and high chairs are also available at no cost. (If cots are provided guests are asked to please bring their child’s own bedding).
