    out of 10

    We spent a thoroughly enjoyable holiday in this impressive and beautifully-restored house with superb views across the Solent. The six acre garden was particularly well appreciated by the younger members of our party; the extensive lawns, woodland, private beach, trampoline and hot tub provided hours of play opportunities.

    A lovely house with a delightful owner. Highly recommended.
