About Helby's

With elements of Georgian simplicity and modern convenience this fascinating house is located on the corner of two residential streets between Portsmouth and Southsea and dates back to 1804. Helby's has three snug bedrooms upstairs, each with crisp white linen on the beds, and a newly fitted out bathroom with roll top bath and separate shower.

Given its age the layout of the house is most definitely of its time and more than a little unique, with spiral steps to a basement TV room complete with wooden floors and original wooden staircase to the first floor. There's also a small enclosed, private garden terrace for summer drinks and BBQ's.

Opposite the house is a local pub serving food and ales, plus all of Portsmouth's cultural and tourist attractions within easy walking distance. Helby's is the perfect self-catering accommodation for families and friends or professionals needing a perfectly central location to Portsmouth with Georgian seaside charm.
