Just minutes from the harbour and beach, this property is also well-placed for exploring the South Downs.

Conveniently set in the heart of this delightful market town, Hamilton House stands along a quiet lane only 55 yards from the scenic, peaceful millpond where many birds and other wildlife can be seen. This comfortable, welcoming, semi-detached home offers an ideal retreat for families or couples wishing to explore this popular area. Emsworth is a historic fishing town which once supplied London with oysters, standing at the top of Chichester Harbour which is an area of Specific Scientific Interest and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Many scenic walks can be enjoyed locally around Chichester’s harbour and nature reserve. The harbour is a 2-minute walk, as are many established eateries, inns and local shops. There are easy road links to many attractions, or alternatively, for a car-free holiday, there are good transport links by bus or rail to Portsmouth with its Spinnaker Tower, historic ships (Mary Rose and Nelson’s Victory), waterside dining, designer shopping outlets, museums and ferry trips to the Isle of Wight. There is also a bus/train route to historic Chichester, 9 miles to the east, with cobbled pedestrianised streets, festival theatre, Pallant Gallery and ornate cathedral. The picturesque sailing village of Bosham is within easy reach, as are various National Trust homes and gardens, the nearest being Uppark, a 17th-century country house. There are eleven golf courses within a 9-mile radius, and wonderful walks along the South Downs Way, which is within 10 miles of the property. Elizabeth Park and Butser Hill are the nearest scenic South Downs Walks. As well as the local beach, there are popular sandy beaches at Hayling Island and The Witterings (about 10 miles). Further afield, but within easy driving distance, are Arundel Castle to the east, or the New Forest to the west. Beach 220 yards. Shop 165 yards, pub and restaurant 130 yards.

    Beautiful house in beautiful location but everything was a bit tired. Certain things not very clean although overall we had a lovely week relaxing and enjoying the walks.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you, we love our home too and the location is indeed beautiful! We appreciate your feedback, we have strived to make Hamilton House homely and comfortable, and we provide many personal touches to ensure that our guests are made to feel welcome. It is not a luxury or boutique property, but one to feel at home in! Thanks for feedback regarding the cleaning so that we can address this with our cleaner.

    A lovely town with picture postcard views, easy to get to Portsmouth and Chichester by bus or car. Down side is if you have two cars like we did with 6 adults the car park behind the house only allow parking for 4 hours during the day. 4 days we all used the bus service (bus passes) and the long term car park the other side of town which is cheap enough per day but you have to put a new ticket on daily before 8am every day. Cottage good for families with a nice large main bedroom but the two other bedrooms are a bit small for 6 adults. Kitchen, Lounge and dining room are a descent size. Beware though of the trip hazard into the kitchen area with a slight rise onto the kitchen floor tiles.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your feedback and I am really pleased to hear you found the area to be picturesque – we love it too! The parking space is for one car directly in front of the house. We are located along a lane just off the town centre with restricted parking, but there is a car park adjacent with free overnight parking (6pm and 8am), and free car parking in the alternative car park a few minutes walk away or on street parking (we have put the locations in our house manual). We feel the photos on the website reflect the size of the bedrooms accurately. Although there is a change of flooring level from tiled in the kitchen to wood in the dining area we would like to reassure our future guests that this should not prove to be a trip hazard.

    Lovely house but needs some TLC. The kitchen ceiling lights did not work, bathroom toilet seat is loose, shower room door handle falls off. Not given the right amount of towels for the number of people staying (as advised when booking) When we arrived the rubbish bin was full from previous occupants, it is only emptied every fortnight. Parking was not a problem as we only have a small car but the space is limited and photo deceptive.

    We had a very nice stay, the property is well located for exploring the local area, Emsworth has a good selection of shops. Only downside is parking is very limited in front of property, would struggle to park a large family car.

    Larger than it looks in the online photos, Hamilton House has everything you need for a comfortable stay in a beautiful part of the country. Emsworth is ideally situated for making the most of the areas historic sites and surrounding scenery.

    Generally a very good experience. House in a good location, needs some updating, but does have everything you need for a week away. Parking is a bit of an issue, but we were aware of this before booking and there is a free carpark only a few minutes away. Wi-fi free and excellent.

    My family in Holland rented Hamilton House for 3 days and were delighted with the choice I had made for them.

    A nice cottage. The heating seemed to maintain upstairs at a higher temperature than downstairs. There wasn't a welcome pack. The car parking space is ok for a small/medium car but a challenge for a large car.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We are sorry that the welcome pack was not there, the housekeeper must have forgotten it. The heating is adjustable from the room thermostat downstairs and the thermostats on each individual radiator. Each guest has a different idea of the temperature they need in each room so we leave it adjustable by the guest. We will ask the housekeeper to check the settings in future.

    Excellent cottage in perfect location. The parking space at the front looks a bit tight on the photos but I was able to park a big car there (Citroen C6) no problem.
