A beautiful house within a stones throw of the sea

  • 5 of 5

Sally, the owner could not have been helpful. She contacted us a number of times before our visit to ensure we had all the information we needed, recommending locals restaurants, and general info about best way to get to key attractions. The house itself was immaculate, beautifully furnished, spotless and just as described with plenty of room for all 9 of us. The homemade cake that she left for us was a lovely touch, and delicious! Thank you Sally, we will be back!

Bright, spacious house with lots of luxurious extras.

  • 5 of 5

Ten adults spent a lovely long weekend at Windbrake House. It easily accommodated us all in large comfortable bedrooms, most with luxurious bathrooms and toiletries. We were blessed with good weather so were able to make use of the superb garden furniture in the beautiful garden. The house is very convenient for walks along the seafront which was an added bonus, Although we were a party of adults I would thoroughly recommend this house for a mixture of different ages, both young and elderly.

Perfect New Year retreat for 8 friends.

  • 5 of 5

We were four couples escaping for a couple of days, and this was a perfect location. Beautiful house with everything we could possibly need. The big plus was four lovely bedrooms all with their own bathroom, plus plenty of space for us to sit and eat together. We also walked along the seafront, easy to reach, and took the ferry to Portsmouth and spent the day exploring the Naval dockyard.

Sally met us and showed us around, she was so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The added bonus was the company of Missy the cat, which made it feel like a holiday at home with the people you really wanted to be with to see in the New Year.

Superb property, fully equipped

  • 5 of 5

Just bloo** brilliant. !0 of us on an important birthday celebration were overwhelmed with the quality and thoughtfulness - everything was provided, even Missy a lovely cat we all wanted to take home. Sally, the owner, was so helpful, nothing but admiration for the way she presents and administers this property. Would not hesitate to book again..........

Beautiful house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

I organised a birthday weekend celebration for myself and 10 friends at Windbrake House. The owner was well organised and extremely helpful - helping me organise my trip, with handy tips for how to find the house as we were all travelling from London and the area was unknown to us. The house itself was beautiful and came with everything you can think off (towels, toiletries, and kitchen appliances, etc.). All guest bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and well presented. We were treated to a lovely home made cake and glass of Prosecco, upon arrival and the dinning table was already dressed and ready for us to use - which was a real thoughtful touch! The house is conveniently situated, with great access to the beach - making it perfect for strolls along the sea front.

We all had a truly wonderful time! I can't recommend it enough!

Lidia Kelly & Party of 10!

absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

me and a group of friends with young children stayed here. The location is fantastic to get to the beach in a few minutes walk and all local amenities nearby!

the house itself was absolutely amazing. the room sizes were really generous and everything was provided. We made use of the kitchen and the grounds by sitting outside for most of the time

Would highly recommend
