An idyllic retreat accommodating up to 4 guests. After a busy day touring the surrounding area come back to Baytree Cottage and enjoy your very own hot tub.

This delightful period cottage has been tastefully restored and enjoys an enviable location, only 22 yards from the water’s edge/slipway, where a colourful array of boats can be seen. There is direct access to a footpath along The Solent Way which stretches all the way to Gosport, with scenic views over the River Hamble and where many birds and other wildlife can be spotted. There are local traditional inns nearby, the nearest is about 55 yards away, or a little further discover the pub featured in Howards Way, the popular TV series of yesteryear, just a ½-mile walk away.
Inside, this super cottage boasts some historic features: the handrail for the stairs originates from The Gypsy Moth, a famous historic yacht that circumnavigated the globe. Other features include beams, part exposed brick/flint walls, wooden floors and a wood-burning stove. Outside, the enclosed lawned garden has a flower border and two levels of decking with furniture. There is also a hot tub which can be enjoyed all year round by guests, and two kayaks available to be launched from the public slipway free of charge. For those with boats, mooring can be arranged with nearby marinas, and fishing trips can also be organised upon request.
An ideal retreat for couples or families wishing to explore the area: maritime Southampton and Portsmouth with Spinnaker Tower, leisure centres, museums, galleries, historic ships, designer shopping and ferries to the Isle of Wight. Also Winchester, Chichester or Salisbury with their cathedrals, excellent walking in the New Forest, Beaulieu Motor Museum, South Downs National Park, and the seaside resorts of Poole or Bournemouth are all within easy driving distance.

    Great location for touring, we went to Portmouth, Southampton, Bournemouth and the Isle of Wight (by ferry) all within a short drive away. Great little cottage, full of character and charm. Hot tub is good quality and the well equipped kitchen along with the wood burning fire make it a great getaway! Excellent peaceful location with a nice range of pubs all within 5-10 minutes walk. Lovely owners too who were happy to help with anything you needed.
