“Pretty cottage, in an ideal location”
Reviewed 6 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This cottage is ideally located at the end of a gated driveway, within the garden of the owners house. Within easy walking distance are a Coop for groceries, papers, cash etc., two pubs for drink and/or dinner and a fish and chip shop. Nearby Emsworth has numerous coffee shops, stores, the Oyster trail walk around the mill pond, and yet more pubs, and has a good bus service to Portsmouth etc. The cottage is very well equipped, including a Nespresso machine. The living room includes throws for chilly evenings, and a selection of DVDs and books. As the living areas are upstairs, you do need to be able to handle stairs, and we did bang our heads a few times on the eaves. You also need to be carry your meals upstairs, although the kitchen is ideal for breakfast meals. Our one disappointment was that we lost our access to the Internet via the wifi every evening around 8pm, mostly working again the following morning. The owner advised this was a BT problem, and would be fixed the week after we left. This is the first time we have rented a cottage so not sure what the norms are, but as we were there for 2 weeks I expected a cleaning at the end of the first week, but that did not happen. The linens, which were wonderfully soft, were changed after 5 days, and then not again which was strange.

Apart from those concerns, we would recommend this cottage as a delightful place to stay, and an ideal bolt hole when the weather is not kind. You can truly relax here and feel at home.

“Lovely Cottage”
Reviewed 8 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Had a really relaxing stay at The Coach House.
Exceptionally clean and the bed was so comfortable.
Loved the little welcome pack too.
Co-op around the corner and a fabulous curry house (The Spice Cottage)
Was the best curry my husband and I had, had for a long time and they deliver if you are feeling especially lazy.
Two things to point out, no dishwasher and the kitchen was freezing.
This did not bother us as we were only there for 2 days and ate out or had a takeaway.
Sandra was very quick to respond to my booking and her instructions on how to get to the property and find the key were perfect.

Many thanks for your comments. The underfloor heating in the kitchen has been repaired and the kitchen is now a very comfortable temperature, my apologies that this was not the case when you stayed.. We've also had a dishwasher installed, so no more washing up!!!

“Pleasant Garden Setting in a Village Full of Facilities.”
Reviewed 26 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Through automatic gates, over the gravel drive to ample parking adjacent to the cottage. Enter into the ground floor kitchen that's well equipped, except for a dishwasher. Main accommodation is on the first floor with a comfortable lounge, useful dining area and a separate bedroom. There's a desk in the lounge and bedroom to work at, if on business, with high-speed internet access. So, great accommodation with the bonus of pleasant village location with a small supermarket, two pubs, a fish and chip shop and a well reviewed Indian restaurant - all within a minute or two's walk - I'll be back.

“Welcoming”
Reviewed 26 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

It was quaint and had everything at hand. Close to pretty town and near to Emsworth. There were lots of special little touches, which added to the enjoyment. Would recommend this to all.
