Enjoyed by Australians and Canadians!
My husband and I were staying with my elderly parents in Lee and Solent and rented Highland Lodge for our son and his wife from Canada, and our daughter from Australia. The three of them loved their accommodation. The apartment is light, modern, beautifully equipped, clean and has nice countryside views out of most of the windows. The welcome pack was most appreciated - bread, eggs, milk, butter and everything needed for their breakfasts for a couple of mornings. The owners Tracey and Tim were really prompt and helpful in responding to my emails. I would thoroughly recommend this apartment.
A real pleasure
I used the property for a mix pleasure & business & found it perfect for both. A wonderful welcome, really nicely appointed, spacious & quiet. Shops, pubs & beach a short stroll. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay, Thank you Tracey & Tim, hope to see you again. Tony
A very smart pad & helpful owners, thank you, I would definitely use again.
Home from Home
After driving over from Germany it was wonderful to be given such a friendly welcome, The appartment was alot bigger than what we expected, and there was plenty of room for my husband, teenage son and myself. Tracey and Tim the owners had thought of everything from plasters to a small selection of essentials (ie milk, tea, biscuits, bread) It really was lovely to be able to arrive and start our holiday straight away. It really is 5 Star !!!!
We had a lovely two nights here and fitted in nicely to the large bedroom with a camp bed supplied by the owner and with our travel cot. We got easily to both Paulton's (Peppa Pig World) and the New Forest. The extras supplied by the owners were really nice (everything needed for breakfast). Not far to walk to the seaside and a pub with a play area around the corner.

We have just left the apartment having stayed for two weeks. Tracey and Tim are very friendly and welcoming. The accommodation is excellent and it is ideally situated for the nearby attractions. I will happily stay there again if I am in the area.

Activity and Interests
The beach can be accessed from the property in 2 directions, directly South to Lee on the Solent is a 15 minutes walk, whilst the very lovely Stokes Bay is about 25 minutes walk to the East. This is a fantastic location to watch the activities of the busy Solent, especially during Cowes week.
Southampton Airport 30 minutes drive. Bournemouth Airport 60 Minutes drive, Gatwick/Heathrow (London) Airport 1.5 hours drive. Car recommended due to rural location.
Lee on the Solent 0.5 miles. Gosport 5 miles. Portsmouth 6 miles by water or 12 miles driving. Fareham 3 miles. Southampton 10 miles. London 80 miles.
The Lodge in located in a superb area for activities of all sorts, the beautiful New Forest is less that an hour away, the cities of Portsmouth, Southampton, Chichester, Salisbury and of course the Isle of Wight are all within easy reach and offer the visitor a host of attractions. Lee on the Solent itself, although quite small has all the necessary shopping and banking facilities required to meet you every day needs. Even London is accessible for a day trip by Car Coach or Rail
