Holiday Rental House
A CHARMING AND QUAINT TWO BEDROOM GRADE II LISTED COTTAGE LOCATED IN THE MOST IDYLLIC AND PICTURESQUE LOCATION WITH UNINTERRUPTED VIEWS OF THE HAMBLE RIVER. This grade II listed cottage dates back to the Napoleonic period and was listed in 1976 with the English Heritage. The row of cottages was a hive of maritime activity and the workstation dwellings for sail makers who hauled masts from the bustling slipway for repair. The cottage is unique and has uninterrupted river views with marine activity and seasonal wildlife. The property has a wealth of history absorbing it and it is incredibly warm and welcoming and holds a depth of character and charm. Overlooking the River Hamble, with Riverside walks and next to Swanwick Marina. Pubs within a very short walk, the closest being The Old Ship...A CHARMING AND QUAINT TWO BEDROOM GRADE II LISTED COTTAGE LOCATED IN THE MOST IDYLLIC AND PICTURESQUE LOCATION WITH UNINTERRUPTED VIEWS OF THE HAMBLE RIVER.

The row of cottages was a hive of maritime activity and the workstation dwellings for sail makers who hauled masts from the bustling slipway for repair.

The property has a wealth of history absorbing it and it is incredibly warm and welcoming and holds a depth of character and charm. Overlooking the River Hamble, with Riverside walks and next to Swanwick Marina. Pubs within a very short walk, the closest being The Old Ship; a recently refurbished 16th century pub serving good food within 100m of the cottage. The relaxing beautiful riverside cottage, with 2 double bedrooms one with a double bed & the other with two singles. Has a small steep cottage staircase and a downstairs bathroom. The Cottage is traditional with one bedroom gaining access through the other but separated by a door. This 200 + old cottage has low doorways which is a typical English character. Parking is in a free public car park adjacent to the property. The sun room overlooks the river where you can watch the boats go by or you can bring your own kayaks, paddle boards or boat, launch on the slipway & enjoy being on the water. It is perfect if you enjoy fishing or bird spotting as there are many different species and some protected areas for breeding and migrating birds. Wi-fi will be installed in January 2018, In the meantime it can be created from your phone by placing upstairs & using it as a personal hotspot. More
