  • “Comfortable family getaway”
    Well appointed, clean and tidy. Everything we needed was there except for a couple of serving dishes and hairdryer . The owner was helpful and informative when we phoned for the key code and when we asked him a question on arrival. He said if we had any issues at all to let him know. Pleased to say we didn’t.

The property

This large, detached property is located on the outskirts of Horndean village in Hampshire, and offers three double bedrooms, making it ideal for a family or friends looking to stay in a rural location yet still close to busy and interesting towns.

The accommodation is set over many different levels with two of the bedrooms on the first floor along with a family bathroom, and the third bedroom, a double with en-suite, is on a second floor level.

Rooms that can be used for storage are situated on the lower ground floor and can be accessed either from the sitting room via a wrought iron spiral staircase, or from the rear garden down stone steps and through French doors.

Whether you are packing a picnic or preparing a special dinner, the spacious kitchen at St Bernards will not disappoint.

With a range cooker with two ovens, a large American style fridge/freezer and a dishwasher to take charge of the washing up, then any chef will be impressed with this self- catering holiday kitchen.

Comfortably furnished with a selection of sofas to sink into, along with a warming woodburner, this cottage is a lovely place to return to after a day exploring the sights and sounds of Portsmouth or the cobbled lanes and impressive Chichester Cathedral, or Queen Elizabeth Country Park, Hampshire all short distances away.

On warm summer days make the most of the extensive garden and enjoy a ball game together or dine alfresco.

Outside the door you will find woodlands where dog walking is encouraged and where you can feel at one with nature.

Horndean village is just down the hill, and here you will find cafes, local shops, small supermarket, pubs and takeaway restaurants, so if your idea of a holiday is a being away from the kitchen, there is plenty of choice.

Whatever the weather or time of year this cottage makes an excellent base for a busy or relaxing holiday experience.

About the location

HORNDEAN

Waterlooville 3.5 miles; Hambledown 5 miles; Portsmouth 8 miles; Chichester 14 miles.

Horndean is a thriving village with local shops, pubs, cafes and takeaways. From the village there are excellent road links serving the south from Sussex to Hampshire.The next village is Rowlands Castle and here the village is crossed by three long-distance footpaths, the Monarch's Way, Sussex Border Path and Staunton Way, making this a walkers’ delight. There is also a railway station with direct trains into London Waterloo. Portsmouth is only a short drive where you can easily spend a day exploring anything to do with ships and sailing (HMS Victory, Mary Rose). Maybe spend some time going around the D Day landings exhibition where you can see in full the planning that went into it along with clothes and gas masks from that time. Stop on and take in a show, or enjoy a delicious dinner at one of the dozens of fish restaurants. Gunwarf Quays is where you can shop until you drop at this designer outlet centre and still enjoy coffee and cake overlooking the water. Chichester is a popular choice with its cobbled lanes and quirky shops. Stop here for a Sussex cream tea and watch the world go by before setting off to explore the imposing Cathedral that Chichester is famous for. This part of Hampshire has many places of interest to visit, why not take the time to explore this area, you won't regret it.
