The property

Enjoying an enviable position on the coast of Portsmouth, Hampshire is this fabulous townhouse of Battery House.

A four-storey dwelling with sea views throughout, Battery House can sleep up to eight guests and offers them easy access to Portsmouth's many attractions and amenities, along with the nearby South Downs and New Forest National Parks.

Climb up the stairs to the first floor to find two well-appointed bedrooms with both featuring a TV and the other being accompanied by an en-suite shower room; the bedrooms on this floor enjoy access to a well-presented family bathroom, where relaxing baths can be had after a day packed with watersports.

Continue upstairs to come across a handy cloakroom, before finding two more beautifully decorated bedrooms, with both featuring a TV and en-suite shower room.

After a well-earned rest in the bedrooms, climb the stairs again to find a tastefully decorated open-plan living space, where a sitting area offers plush seating in front of the TV and those gorgeous, sea views.

When it's time to rustle up breakfast, move across the space to the contemporary kitchen, where minimalistic units house an array of appliances to make tasty meals with, along with the added bonus of a wine cooler.

Breakfast can be enjoyed at the neighbouring dining table, or you can take it upstairs to the sunny roof terrace, where elevated views over Portsmouth and the ever-expanding sea can be relished.

The townhouse truly enjoys a fantastic location, with your amenities resting on your doorstep, as well as the picturesque Hotwalls Beach, Round Tower and Victoria Pier.

Get further acquainted with the city's harbour and spend some time visiting the historic sights of the Mary Rose Museum, Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, the Maritime Museum of the HMS Warrior and the Spinnaker Tower.

For more family-friendly activities, be sure to take the kids around the bustling Clarence Pier, through the fascinating Blue Reef Aquarium and end the day with a picnic at Southsea Common.

Why not travel across the waters to Gosport, home to the intriguing Royal Navy Submarine Museum, the Explosion Museum of Naval Firepower, the hidden gem of the Little Woodham Living History Village and the nearby Alver Valley Country Park; there is truly so much to see here.

You'll rarely find yourselves with little do to, as there are a huge number of attractions and sights resting within easy reach, such as the marvellous Hayling Island, the Isle of Wight, Southampton, Bognor Regis and the surrounding National Parks; just to name a few!

Make everlasting memories with a stay at Battery House.

About the location


Southsea 2.5 miles; Hayling Island 8 miles; New Forest 26 miles.

Portsmouth is the second largest city in Hampshire and a fantastic destination for everything from a weekend city break, to a longer year-round holiday spot for couples, friends and families. The city is famous for many historic events and also for having the world's oldest dry dock. The dock is still home to HMS Warrior, the Tudor carrack Mary Rose and Lord Nelson's flagship; HMS Victory, which is the world's oldest naval ship still in commission. Standing proud over the city you will find The Spinnaker Tower, an impressive 560-ft high and built in the shape of a sail. The tower offers 360-degree views from three observation platforms, the highest of which "The Crow's Nest", only has a wire mesh roof so visitors are open to the elements. The windows extend above head height and with a glass floor, this is not a place to be if you suffer from a fear of heights, but those that do rise to the challenge, they will get a wonderful bird's eye view over the docks, harbour and the city! If your idea of holiday heaven includes shopping, then Gunwharf Quays is the place to go. With over 95 premium shopping outlets to browse you will be spoilt for choice. When you are ready for a break, stop off at one of the many waterside bars or restaurants. Perhaps spending a day in Southsea perusing the many antique, independent and bric-a-brac shops is more to your liking, where can look out for a memento to take back home. Back on the seafront in Portsmouth you will find the D Day museum, the only UK museum dedicated to the Normandy landings, bringing the invasion to life not only with real life tanks and gunboats, but photos, letters and even clothing from the time. Its centrepiece is the magnificent Overlord Embroidery. Over 272-feet long, it is a tribute to the sacrifice and heroism of all the men and women who took part in Operation Overlord and the beginning of the end of WWII. Like any thriving city Portsmouth is diverse and buzzing, packed with wonderful restaurants serving delicious fish dishes, lively pubs and plenty of shops as well as interesting museums, theatres and playhouses, so there is never a reason to be restless or bored. Why not combine your holiday in Portsmouth with a more traditional seaside break and take a ferry to the Isle of Wight, with sandy beaches and long country walks. The Isle of Wight has long been a holiday destination for couples and families. Here is where you can visit Osborne House, built as a holiday retreat for Queen Victoria and Prince Albert with their young family. From the city of Portsmouth you can travel far and wide, by ferry or road, exploring and experiencing Hampshire at its finest.
