The Edwardian home, under the same family ownership as New England Mansion, Marine House and Pier House, has been beautifully modernised and benefits from contemporary interiors and elegant furnishings throughout. Shore House comfortably accommodates up to twenty guests across its ten beautifully-appointed bedrooms, each boasting en-suite facilities making it ideal for a group of friends holidaying together.

After action-packed days spent exploring Southsea, spend evenings snuggling up in the cool cinema room and enjoying a showing of your favourite film. The ten bedrooms are split across the four levels, seven are king-size double rooms, one is a family room with two king-size beds and the remaining two are singles.

Luxury self-catering holiday accommodation in Hampshire

Welcome to a treasure trove of wonders, the legendary land of Hampshire! Nestled snugly on the southern coast of England, this county is rich in history, natural beauty and a vibrant cultural scene. The county is sprinkled with wonderful Oliver’s Travels properties, from cute cottages to seaside wonders, luxurious manor houses and contemporary architectural gems.

Winchester Cathedral, a medieval masterpiece stands tall and proud in the historic city of Winchester. It is the rockstar of cathedrals, dating back to the 11th century, boasting stained glass windows that will make your jaw drop, medieval carvings that tell tales of yore and even the resting place of the legendary Jane Austen. Winchester is brimming with cobbled streets lined with indie shops and historic buildings that create an inviting ambiance. The Great Hall, with King Arthur's Round Table, adds a dash of myth and legend to this already enchanting city.

Portsmouth, a vibrant waterfront city is all about maritime glory. The Historic Dockyard, home to HMS Victory and the Mary Rose Museum, is a treasure trove of naval history. If you want a bird's-eye view of the action, the Spinnaker Tower is your ticket to panoramic views of the city and the mighty Solent. Next stop, Southampton, a bustling port city that offers more maritime adventures. The SeaCity Museum dives deep into the city's seafaring past while the Tudor House and Garden explore Southampton's rich history. The waterfront is alive with shops, restaurants and cultural hotspots.

If you venture into the Test Valley, villages like Stockbridge and Longstock offer a taste of quintessential English countryside. Thatched cottages, charming pubs and the soothing River Test meandering through offering soothing serenity and picturesque photo shots. The New Forest National Park is an ancient woodland haven where you can walk, cycle and encounter free-roaming ponies, deer and wildlife galore. It is nature's playground and you are invited to join the fun.

For the culture vultures, Hampshire has your back. The Winchester Festival is an annual arts extravaganza, with music, literature and visual arts. The Ashcroft Arts Centre in Fareham and The Anvil in Basingstoke are stages for the county's artistic soul, showcasing everything from live music to theatre productions.

Hampshire is the ultimate blend of history, modern vibes and natural beauty. Whether you are exploring cathedrals, wandering through quaint villages or embracing your inner adventurer in the great outdoors, Hampshire promises a fabulous time. Prepare to be bewitched by the diversity and charm of this southern English gem, it is a journey you won't soon forget!

Owner Profile

Property Owner
Daniel

How long have you owned the property?
11 years!

What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
It's grand and Edwardian and in the perfect location for the beach.

Do you have a favourite room in the property?
I love the open-plan kitchen/ diner - a fantastic space for the whole family to gather.

For anyone coming to stay is there anything in the surrounding area they should...

Really do?

Make sure you visit the Historic Dockyard and see the Mary Rose.

Really eat?
Restaurant 27 - it's excellent and only a few minutes walk from the house.

Really see?
The magnificent views from the top of the Spinnaker Tower.

What insider tip would you pass on about the property or the area?
Everyone who stays says they didn’t realise how much there is to see in Portsmouth and the surrounding area and that they wished they had booked to stay for longer, the dockyard alone can take a few days to go around.

Reviews

  • Great house!

    on 31/07/2022

    We loved our get together! The house was well equipped and literally minutes from the seafront. Southsea is a great area, brilliant shopping & restaurants and coastal. We had private catering and it meant we could really relax properly. Great house!

  • Long awaited family holiday

    on 10/07/2022

    We hadn’t got together as a family for so long we wanted somewhere special we could all relax and be together without worrying about others around us. The children loved the cinema room space and the adults enjoyed the open kitchen/diner so chef wasn’t left out of the chatting!

  • Beautiful bedrooms

    on 24/11/2021

    The house was ideal for our corporate group. The rooms were more like hotel rooms all beautifully designed and all en-suite rather than people sharing. The on site parking for everyone was a real bonus.

  • We loved it!

    on 30/10/2021

    Our first time in self catering over a hotel – brilliant! Loved the space and just a great way to relax as a family.
