Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Emsworth - Toll House, Emsworth

Toll House - a family house that sleeps 6 guests in 3 bedrooms

Toll House is the southern wing of Lumley Mill, a beautiful Grade II listed building which dates back to the 18th Century and is nestled at the end of a leafy lane just outside the harbour town of Emsworth. Imposing in appearance, the building has a notable history, with previous occupants including the artist and entomologist, Peter Buckler, and it is reputed that Admiral Nelson and Lady Hamilton were once guests of then owner who was the baker to the Royal Navy. Today, Lumley Mill is often the subject of local artists, keen to capture its character and charm.

With 3 large bedrooms on the first floor, the house will comfortably sleep 6 guests, with the option of 2 further guests on pull-out beds in the twin bedroom, suitable for children (£50 supplement for use of pull-out beds). There is a large bathroom which is accessed through one of the 2 double bedrooms, as well as a separate shower room. On the ground floor, there is a generous kitchen featuring a 4-oven Aga. The dining area is open to the kitchen and can comfortably seat 8 or more for dinner. There is a very stylish sitting room with doors opening onto a private patio with the mill stream running past. There is also the benefit of a utility room.

Sat right on the Hampshire/Sussex border, Toll House is perfect for a quiet retreat away from the crowds or would equally be suitable as a holiday base for those looking to explore the attractions and stunning natural surroundings that Hampshire and Sussex have to offer.

Please be aware that the mill stream runs directly alongside the house and patio, with no barrier in some places. Guests with small children should be aware of this.

Guestbook comments from the manager

As special as any property from a Landmark Trust or National Trust brochure the huge hall, tiled floors and wipe clean sofas meant that no serious anxiety ensued from our decision to bring our large, hairy and often muddy dog on holiday, After all, it would have been a shame not to have witnessed her racing about on nearby West Wittering beach. The weather was gloomy and showery during our stay, so rather than sit outside in the statued, streamside courtyard we sat by the aga in the enormous kitchen and watched the ducks through the large windows. There is one winding, muralled staircase that leads to three very good-sized bedrooms and another staircase leading nowhere just for show. Next to that is a wonderfully spacious bathroom which reminds one of the room in 'Mary Poppins' where they float around with laughter near the ceiling. Overall, an eccentric and charming place to stay, close to so many interesting sites and lovely seaside villages, the original builder of which appears to have been a colourful character with a true riches to rags life-story.
