About this listing

Waterside Escape is a stunning waterside villa with many welcoming features – stunning views, a covered pool, a large garden that offers direct access to Hamble River via its private jetty and has ample parking within the gated grounds.
Only 30min from the New Forest, 1hr from Bournemouth, it offers loads to do and explore in the local villages and riverside marinas – get active or just relax in a stunning setting where family and friends can re-unite and enjoy riverside life on Hamble River.

This unique beautifully refurbished period home features 4 comfortable double bedrooms, accommodating up to max 12 guests (2 sofa bed chairs are child size singles), has 4 modern bathrooms and 2 guest toilets, spacious open plan living, a double sided wood burner fireplace for cosy winter nights, relaxed group dining at its a large 12-seater country style wooden dining table, a sunny conservatory for lazy afternoons and early eve cocktails, 3 flat-screen SMART TVs areas, fibre optic Wi-Fi access, a modern fully equipped kitchen with a large range cooker for catering, a dishwasher and a microwave, wine fridge, kitchen dining and separate laundry room with washing machine and tumble drier.

On arrival you will find a complimentary welcome basket with some basics to get your holiday off to an easy start. Fluffy bathroom towels and luxury bed linen are also included within the booking price.

Pool Towels, can be requested to be supplied for use in advance at a charge of £5/towel, as well as extra firewood @ £5/bag for the chiminea (outside) and wood burner fireplace (inside) to supplement the basic free supply that will be included within the booking cost.

There are plenty of indoor spaces to gather, relax and unwind against the backdrop of stunning river views, while the outdoors offers guests plenty terraces where they can enjoy getting together, swim in the heated covered pool, have a relaxed BBQ, enjoy sunset sundowners or simply read a book lounging around or finding solitude in a hammock, all while enjoying breath-taking sunsets over the ever-changing Hamble River, soaking up the tranquility of the waterside living and lush countryside.

The property’s private jetty and river land (property side of the towpath and within property boundaries) give private and direct access to River Hamble. The river is tidal and at some points during the day the riverbed runs dry, so it’s a good idea to check tide times if you want to launch your paddle board or kayak, and as with all waterside living, always be aware of the changing river conditions and currents. Never leave children unattended.

With so much green countryside directly on your doorstep, you might even be lucky enough to sport some wild deer that occasionally wonder through the garden from the surrounding woodlands and Holly Hill Woodland Park nearby, very early in the mornings. The local area is a paradise for walkers and birdwatchers too.

There are loads to do and explore in the local villages and riverside marinas – all within comfortable walking distance – there are endless waterside activities to enjoy, or just relax in this truly stunning setting.

Waterside Escape sits within the exclusive Sarisbury Estate in Sarisbury Green and can be reached via a tree lined country lane running past single residential homes and open horse fields until you reach the gated property at the very end of the lane by the water.

The property is accessed via a large drive through security gate, as well as walk through service gate. The large driveway offers ample private parking for 5 cars.

The surrounding local areas can also easily be reached by foot following the riverside towpath in both directions along Hamble River. Holly Hill Woodland Park is a lovely spot to walk or to picnic in.

All guests will be welcomed in person to check-in, receive keys and gain access to the property. And also at check-out.

You will be met at check in and check-out by one of my dedicated co-hosts. Who will also be on hand to help with any problems or deal with any additional requests when needed.

If you have canoes or paddle boards or bicycles you are more than welcome to bring them down as there is plenty to explore on the river and in the immediate and surrounding areas.

Waterside Escape is located on beautiful Hamble River in the exclusive Sarisbury Estate located in Sarisbury Green, England, United Kingdom right on the edge of beautiful Holly Hill Woodland Park and miles of waterside country walks all around, within easy reach of local villages, pubs, and restaurants, Whitely, Southampton, Portsmouth shopping, food stores, like Tesco, Waitrose, and Sainsbury’s.

Plus, if boats are your passion… nearby marinas, like Universal Marina, Swanick Marina and Hamble Marina offer boat hire or boat trips and Cowes, and the rest of Isle of Wight is only a boat or ferry ride away. You can do SUP hire and find many other fun local activities to explore.

This gated property is a real hidden gem, only 10-15min country walk (5 min drive) to the nearest marina, restaurants, and cafés, and about a 30 min drive away from the edge of the New Forest National Park, it is a wonderful choice for your waterside holiday experience.

Waterside Escape is ideally situated approximately two miles from Junction 8 of the M27. There are two railway stations at Swanwick and Bursledon which are also approximately two miles away.

There is a bus stop located at the top of the lane which can take you along the A27 to Southampton or Portsmouth.

Located on the River Hamble, the Villages of Warsash, Hamble and Bursledon are only a short walk from your location, all with welcoming local pubs, bars and cafes.

If you cycle or walk along the shoreline path you can take the Pink Ferry across to Hamble.

Pubs and bars such as The King and Queen, The Bugle and The Whyte Hart will all make you feel welcome. You may choose to continue along the shore into Netley and the Queen Victoria Country Park where you will see the range of water activities happening along the Solent and see stunning Cruise Ships pass by.

Why not take a paddleboard lesson at Bursledon or for those more accomplished bring your own paddleboard and watercraft with you.

For those of you who want rest and relaxation you could fish from our own pontoon, or relax in the pool and watch the rest of the world go by!

Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard is accessible via the train from Swanwick or Bursledon, new cinemas, bars and museums can be visited in both cities. Ferries to the Isle of Wight run regularly from both Portsmouth and Southampton and Southampton Airport is located close by again easily accessed via the M27.

Friendly local dog walkers and horses trundle by and there is plenty of river activity, but it’s all part of the friendly local country charm.

You can store and secure your canoes/paddle board/bicycles outside or in the locked storeroom next to the property, but it is always at your own risk.

Children must always be supervised, as this is a waterside property with a pool, ponds and a jetty, a large garden with sharp drops and uneven ground.

Unfortunately, we cannot accept any bookings with infants or toddlers still in nappies.

We love well behaved dogs and may accept 1 (to maximum 2) well behaved dog on request ONLY. Please send a separate message with details to review.
