Period Grade II Listed Cottage In Historic High Street
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

Very quaint and comfortable in convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Three of us visited on a 'sibling' trip and with 3 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms the accommodation was ideal. The house is very old and interesting and also very comfortable with all modern conveniences and with a west facing 'patio' for evening drinks etc. It would have been interesting to have had some info on the history of the building/street/church to look at - if it was there I didn't see it. Fareham itself is perfectly placed to visit Portsmouth (20 mins), Gosport (15 mins) and surrounds by car. Incidentally, you might want to note that free parking is arranged for you about 3-4 mins walk away but we were able to stop outside for a few mins to unload and load. All in all a brilliant break and I would stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. It is always good to know when people enjoy their stay. Thank you also for the tip re the property's history - we will get something done on that and put it in the welcome folder. The cottage dates back to the 17th century and was at one time a school and then a bakery.
