Overview

About the property

Detached Holiday cottage on the shores of the Solent, Nr. Warsash , Hampshire,

Detached brick built luxury holiday home Unrivalled sea views across the Solent from private gardens and open plan lounge/ dining /kitchen area. Watch the yachts racing, cruise ships and tankers sailing past your window!

The view and location are second to none! Unlike many other holiday homes advertised as sea views we are on the sea shore and the photos are what you see from our holiday home rather than general ones of a location We have breath-taking, uninterrupted panoramic sea views across the Solent to the Isle of Wight stretching from the Napoleonic forts at the eastern end of the Solent, Cowes directly opposite, then down to Newtown Creek in the west Solent This is one of the busiest shipping areas and probably the most famous sailing area of the world!

Always so much to see, day and night: Cruise ships, tankers, tugs, ferrys, huge container ships, lifeboats, hovercraft, dinghys, cruising yachts, racing yachts and racing fleets with their colourful Spinnakers. We provide binoculars for close up detail of yachts etc! Fantastic sun rises and sun sets. Although we have a new TV with Freeview, its rarely on!

Guests may also make use of the facilities of the adjacent holiday park.

Tennis court ( £10 refundable deposit for the key to the tennis court)

Heated outdoor swimming pool (available during the season May to Sept) with sun loungers and lifeguards for which guests may obtain daily or a weekly pass for a small cost (2017 charges were £60 for a family weekly pass for 2 adults/ 2 children) this also allows guests to use the park club house which also overlooks the Solent and has evening entertainment at weekends.

This is a perfect location for a relaxing holiday watching the boats on the Solent but equally perfect for visiting the many interesting places in the area.

Owners Direct now charge guests a booking service fee as well as detailed on the quote. Please call if you would like to ask more about the property. Pauline 07740644466 / 07715292134 paulinebowdler@aol.com

The calendar for 2018 is booking up already with many of our regular holiday guests.

This is a very special coastal area of Hampshire with strict planning covenants and is a designated holiday home area to prevent redevelopment. Many of the holiday homes have been with the same families since its inception in the 1950s.

The mile long lane to the holiday park from Hook Village is mainly tarmac with 19 speed bumps as it is used by walkers, cyclists and horse riders to access the Solent Way paths and beach.

About Pauline Bowdler

Hello Thank you for looking at Solent Shores. A little about us. We are Pauline and Giles and we owned and ran an RYA Sea School, Ocean Adventures Sailing, and spend most of our time away sailing and living on board Quintessence our 42 foot yacht. In 2016 we spent several months sailing down to the Algarve where we are enjoying the live aboard life.

My son and daughter in law live a few doors along from Solent Shores and will be on hand to assist you whilst you are staying and are taking care of all the housekeeping and gardening etc.

Pauline Bowdler purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Pauline Bowdler chose Fareham District

Solent Shores was bought in 2006 and has been fully refurbished with a large open plan lounge/dining room/ kitchen to take advantage of the views across the

Solent. We bought it as our holiday home and found we weren't going home! Now we are away so much sailing. Friends who have stayed always hate to leave. New beds in 2015 including top of the range king size waterbed which is incredibly comfortable, supportive and doesn't wallow!! many guests have said they want to take it home!

What makes this cottage unique

The view and location are second to none! Unlike other holiday homes with sea frontage that you may look at, we have a breath-taking, uninterrupted panoramic sea views across the Solent to the Isle of Wight stretching from the Napoleonic forts at the eastern end of the Solent, Cowes directly opposite, then down to Newtown Creek in the west Solent This is one of the busiest shipping areas and probably the most famous sailing area of the

world! Always so much to see, day and night: Cruise ships, tankers, tugs, ferrys, huge container ships, lifeboats, hovercraft, dinghys, cruising yachts, racing yachts and racing fleets with their colourful Spinnakers. We provide binoculars! Fantastic sun rises and sun sets. Although we have a new TV with Freeview, its rarely on!

Peace, tranquility, stunning views and comfort

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property, beautifully furnished and immaculately clean with the best welcome pack I have seen, and welcomed by sculptured towels. Peaceful and tranquil, the perfect place for my elderly mother (95) to relax and enjoy the views. Hosts could not have been more helpful and an information pack with everything that we needed. Can't wait to return!

Distances:

2 miles from Warsash and Titchfield village. Take the pink ferry from Warsash across the River Hamble to visit Hamble Village. Excellent shops within 10 minutes drive including Waitrose, M&S and Tesco etc.

small shop on the holiday park for groceries and newspapers.

Outlet shopping at Gunwharf Quay in Portsmouth a great day out with vast range of outlet shops on the waters edge overlooking Portsmouth Harbour and the fantastic Spinnaker Tower
