All our properties are located within residential areas so we do have neighbours whom we need to consider. If you feel you could comfortably monitor noise levels (in particular out in the gardens and outside areas into the evenings) then we would love to have you stay and have had countless guests who have had a great time with us at our properties. If however you feel that it would not be possible to monitor noise levels, then we would have to recommend you consider something more rural, without neighbours.

We had a lovely time at Little Lane.

We had a lovely time at Little Lane. The rooms were adequate size for our family of 5. The house is located in a quiet street and the neighbours were friendly. We hired the hot tub for the week from Yellow Duck Hot Tub Hire and enjoyed it. There is so many attractions and places to go and there is a brilliant fish and chip shop just down the street. Ken from Complete Holiday Homes was extremely helpful with our induction showing us around the house and how to operate the hot tub. We enjoyed our stay, and I would recommend this property to family.

We chose Little Lane for visiting family

Chose this cosy cottage for visiting family near Portsmouth. Easily accommodated 6 adults (3 teens) and all the amenities we needed. Exceptionally clean. Beautiful little village, close to Gosport ferry. Highly recommend this cottage. Thank you for a great stay

We had a wonderful stay at Little Lane

We had a wonderful stay at Little Lane. The house was immaculately clean and modern with all the facilities you need for a self catering holiday. The unexpected extras (washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, washing tablets, toilet roll, tea coffee & milk) provided that extra touch. We hired the hot tub from Yellow Duck Hot Tub Hire as an extra treat for our holiday and it was lovely. I would like to thank Ken for him showing us around the property when we arrived and showing us how to operate the hot tub. Very professional! I would highly recommend Little Lane.

Little Lane is an absolute gem

An absolute gem of a place. Incredibly clean and well-equipped – and superfast wifi. Wanted for nothing. The small garden at the rear is a delight and wonderful to watch all different types of birds over a morning coffee. The village is quiet and charming and the people lovely – including the hosts who were super helpful and organised. A very short walk to the beach. And loads on your doorstep (One Stop, hairdresser's, barber's, beautician's, post office, fish and chip shop, pub, hotel with a beer garden, Chinese takeaway – that made this vegetarian very happy – and Joy's tea room which does great takeaway cappuccinos and has an amazing selection of quiches, pies, pastries, cake, scones etc – including vegan options). Didn't want to leave!

Little Lane is a Cosy Cottage

Little Lane is a cosy cottage in a village setting with nice neighbours. It's just a short walk to the fabulous Stoke Bay beach looking over The Solent, and close by to Gosport Maritime historic attractions. Nearby convenience store, Post Office and quality chippy is a real bonus. It was clean and fully equipped, nothing required, and back up service very responsive. A pleasant, easy, extended stay between moving main residences, it was an ideal solution for me as a fully serviced rental property through lockdown. I would highly recommend for short or long term stays.
