We stayed at the beach haven with our 3, 5 and 8 year old children and had a fantastic time, there was plenty for the children to keep them amused with crabbing, fossil hunting along the beach and swimming in the sea, the water no deeper than waist height for about half a mile with no strong under currents. This is the only beach I’ve ever been to and felt confident in the water with the children. The neighbours were all very friendly and next door had a barn owl which the children enjoyed stroking and even borrowed their body board. In the evenings when the children went to bed it was very quiet and we enjoyed relaxing watching all the kite surfers and the huge cargo ships and boats leaving neighbouring ports.
Portsmouth is only about a 40minute drive away with amusement parks fairground rides and an aquarium which made a good day out, plus easy access for a day trip to the Isle of Wight.
The accommodation was very nice, everything was very clean and I have to say the pictures did not do it justice. We are hoping to return next year as the location makes for a perfect staycation and the owner was very helpful.
My only negative is we will take a mattress topper for the sofa bed as it was not very comfortable but we all slept well enough.
