Vellum Court is a stunning luxury holiday apartment within a Grade II listing building. Since it's renovation and modernization it has been used as a luxury holiday home. The accommodation consists of a large open plan kitchen and living area, master bedroom with en-suite, large second bedroom (with sloping roof), modern bathroom and a small third room.
Access to Vellum Court is via a remote control key which will open the main gates to the parking area where there is a single reserved space for the apartment. Walk through the passage way into the enclosed complex of ten character converted properties.
Vellum Court is a first floor apartment but it has it's own front door. Walk up the stairs and the family bathroom can be found on the right hand side with bath/shower, toilet, heated towel rail and basin.
Enter the main living area which is a huge open plan living room, dinning area and well equipped kitchen. There is a feeling of space in this room with it's magnificent high beamed ceiling and four large windows. The kitchen boasts brand new and high specification appliances and is finished with a granite worktop and French oak doors on the units.
Bedroom one is a double bedroom that benefits from an en-suite bathroom with shower, toilet, basin and heated towel rail. Bedroom two is a twin bedded room with a large floor plan but please be aware this room has a slopping ceiling which drops off to become very low to one side. Bedroom three is very small but full of character.
This was a great place to enjoy some home comforts whilst working
My wife and I greatly enjoyed our stay in Vellum Court. As others have remarked, it is an extremely well-equipped apartment, with a first class kitchen, a spacious open plan lounge, and very comfortable leather settees. In addition, the owners have also thought carefully about the lighting - a natural bright glow on gloomy days and cosy, subdued lighting in the evening. For those who like to dine at home, Havant is well served by a Waitrose in town, and an M&S & Tesco Extra in the nearby retail park - we ate well. The A27 is virtually on one's doorstep for easy travel (Titchfield Abbey was fantastic), as well as Havant railway station. All in all, a great place for a comfortable break.
We give all the stars as we found everything that the website had promised to be there. Coming from Germany we needed reliable owners and they were perfect. Everything was tidy and neat and comfortable. Thank you so much. We would certainly book again and can recommend the property to everybody who loves spacious, well-equipped rooms also suitable for families. Our 5-year-old loved the Lego boxes and the toys that were provided as well. Excellent. Unfortunately we only discovered at the end of our stay that we also had fans. Maybe you could hint at that as with high temperatures the accommodation gets really hot. All the best for the future from the Berliners.
The pictures online looked promising but arriving there was even better! Our family of five enjoyed the nicely carpeted appartement (reminded me of American flats a bit) with a five-star-kitchen gas-stove & granite work top, including a dish-washer and washing machine (the built-in tumble-dryer was out of order during our stay, but come on, who needs that anyways?). The appartement is very well furnished and helpful information is collected in a Folder and there is a basket full of maps, information about nearby sites an places to visit. A guest book is witness to many happy visitors, the beds are comfy, there were even ice cubes in the freezer for the arriving night G & T! For rainy days, there are board-games and a PS2. What's more, there is a DVD-Player and a few movies. I preferred the choice of books there, though. A cupboard full of books ranging from Bill Bryson's travel-literature (hilarious) to very different novels, two Jamie-Oliver cook books in the kitchen and a few oldtimer magazines (loved those, especially the overhaul of an E-Type Jag). Not that I didn't bring my own... WiFi was important to the teenager and us grown-ups to plan & book trips, worked perfectly. The only hint for exaggerated car-lovers: the car parking is under a tree, so your in for a wash after the holiday (or go to Tesco's for a nine-quid hand wash).
the information in advance left nothing to ask for. Enjoy your stay as we did!
This appartment is in a lovely area of Havant which is quaint and easily accessible to the main facilties, M27 Train Station and Waitrose !

Lovely warm, comfortable and homely apartment in a central Havant location. Secure parking, wifi and all the mod cons made this a convenient and well equipped place to stay during our visit. Quiet too with no disturbances. Good transport links too.
