Holiday Rental House -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Emsworth, Hampshire, England
Located on the shoreline of Chichester and Langstone Harbours, a short walk from Emsworth, this two bedroom Deckhouse is a novel yet practical design dating from the 1960's. It is part of a unique development of deckhouses that were originally built as yachtsmen's weekend and holiday houses.
