The rear garden is land-lock and only has access through the house, so bikes could be secured in the garden if appropriate care was taken when passing through the house.

This property is within a 10 minute walk of Stokes Bay beach or a 5 minute drive to the local marinas.
If you are looking for possible catering options at the property we can recommend a company called Dine Indulge.
There is not a BBQ at the property but if you did wish to bring along a disposable one there is a patio area just outside the French doors, plus to the rear of the garden should you wish to BBQ.
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 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 tables, 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.By: Sarah
Little Lane is a Gem
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!By: Pip
Little Lane is a Cosy Cottage
Straightforward, simple to arrange, pay and alter bookings with quick response, online and in person. Very flexible and accommodating management. 6 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.By: Andrew - Nov 2020 - April 2021
Fantastic stay at Little Lane
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 stayBy: Rebecca
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.By: Ricardo
Great location in the heart of Alverstoke village, handy for all local attractions.By: Andrew
Lovely Cottage in a little Village
Lovely cottage in a little village close to the beach. Very clean and well equipped and the host were very helpful. We hired the hot tub for our stay which was ready on our arrival with clear instructions on how to use. We tried food at the local fish and chips and the Chinese take away, both a short walk away and both were very nice. We would stay again.By: Clare
Little Lane was perfect for our Family
Perfect holiday home for our family (2 adults, a 4 year old and a 1 year old).By: Chris
Little Lane is a quaint, cosy house in an ideal location
It has all the facilities you need and its clean and fresh. The location was great, in a quiet little village with an amazing fish and chip shop but get there early!!! The walk to Stokes Bay was well worth it and also a drive to West Wittering Beach for a pure sandy beach but make sure you book parking on line before. Trip across to Portsmouth on the foot ferry, great idea and no worry about parking. Southsea was also a great visit with plenty to do and see. Complete Holiday Homes were excellent, great communication very impressed.By: The Taylor Family
Totally captivating cottage in gorgeous village by the sea . Thoroughly recommend. Good communication and speedy responses.By: Sue
My feedback regarding the Little Lane cottage and your procedures is entirely positive
I have been very impressed with the ease of booking directly through your website and how easy it has been to contact your office and speak to actual helpful and friendly people! (unlike some 3rd party booking companies). Being met at the Little Lane by Ken and shown the technical stuff in the cottage was also very helpful. Little Lane itself is lovely and I would definitely return and recommend it to anyone. I would say well done, keep up the good work and maybe try and get some more cottages on your books going towards the New Forest and Christchurch, where I visit quite often.By: Pat
Lovely Little Cottage
Little Lane was near perfect and more spacious then expected. Decorated in a modern style but appropriately, location unimprovable. Village, sea and city - perfect in our view. Cleanliness also outstanding. We enjoyed the village, the access to the Solent for walking, the convenience of the ferry for Portsmouth and the local shops. The whole process for booking, contact etc was like the property outstanding. In particular I want to mention Steve who met us so effectively and then went above and beyond when I managed to lock myself out, he was very patient and I'm very thankful. We had a super time at Little Lane and to our surprise found ourselves talking about another stay on the way home. Complete Holiday Homes has been great to deal with and the facilities etc all made for a relaxing time on holiday.By: Kathy and Bill
Really Nice Cottage
Really nice cottage, done up to a high standard and in a very quiet location. We decided to pay extra and hire in a hot tub, which was great.By: Isobel
Little Lane was a lovely conveniently situated property in the middle of the village
It was great we could get in early as we had a 5 year old and a long trip down. Ken met us at the property and had an easy hand over he was very informative, friendly and helpful. The garden was very quiet and secluded and the property was just a short walk from the beach. We stayed in one of your properties previously and wouldn’t hesitate to book through you again. Many thanks for a lovely stayBy: Ruth
Little Lane is beautiful!
We had a wonderful time thanks. Perfect accommodation as ever from you guys. What a gorgeous location. The one stop around the corner was handy and we enjoyed a few pints in the local pub. We had fish and chips from the wine bar at the sea front - which were world class!! Totally recommend it. You guys are faultless so thanks so much and hope to see you next year when we are back for the Goodwood Festival of Speed.By: Andrew
Little Lane was excellent and we were very pleased with our choice
The area is very interesting with plenty of places and things to do. Complete Accommodation was very helpful, friendly and efficient.By: David
