Solent View House is a substantial Georgian home, combining modern comforts and facilities with period charm and breath-taking panoramic views across Portsmouth harbour entrance, the Solent and English Channel towards the Isle of Wight.
This self-catering home has recently been refurbished and offers generous sized accommodation across four floors, with the modern open plan living area on the top floor, making the best of the stunning views of the Solent and giving direct access to the private roof terrace; perfect for al fresco dining and taking in the activity of the busy harbour with a glass of wine! The living area includes a modern, well equipped kitchen, ideal for creating a culinary feast to enjoy at the dining area that seats eight. After dinner, relax on the comfortable sofas that centre on the large, panoramic window, giving enviable views across the harbour entrance and the Solent.
The bedrooms can sleep up to eight guests and these are on the first and second floor. The four bedrooms feature two king size beds, one double bed and 2 twin beds, all of which are zip and link beds. If you require a different bed configuration please advise the booking team. Solent View House also has the added bonus of three en-suite shower rooms, a family bathroom and a cloakroom. Each of the generous sized bedrooms also benefit from flat screen TVs and tea and coffee making facilities.

"Our family enjoyed every moment of our family vacation. Your property provided a perfect location for our activities, without a car we were busy with all the local attractions. The accommodations were superb in every way. We felt very comfortable and privileged to stay here. Thank you for all the provided supplies as well, this relieved a lot of pressure and running around getting ourselves set up on the first day. We could have spent days watching the boating world go by, I know we spent hours doing just that. Weather was lovely too. Hope we can return in the future."April 2014

House is very well equipped and we loved the very large fluffy bath towels. Beds comfortable, and the views spectacular. Lucky with weather and and really enjoyed the roof top terrace. We will be back for sure! Thanks to all concerned with keeping this beautiful home in first class condition."April 2014
