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 gatherings 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.

A Family Weekend at The Dairy House

We really enjoyed this property and had a fantastic weekend despite the weather. The property is very comfortable and really well equipped with everything you could need. The facilities are fantastic, layout of the property is great and the pool table was a real bonus for the kids! Communication with the owner and management company was really straightforward and reassuring. This property has a real feel of quality and we found it perfect for a weekends stay.

The Dairy House was Fantastic !

From booking to finally getting to stay at The Dairy House was fantastic. I mean finally because due to the pandemic we had to change our dates twice! Complete Holiday Homes were really helpful throughout and prompt with responses even during the pandemic. On arrival I was met by Steve who showed me around explaining how everything worked. The Dairy House is very well equipped and plenty of room for us all, with quaint little quiet spaces for those that needed time to read or finish off work. The beds were very comfortable and the view from the lounge is fab. Parking at the front of the house was good and we fitted four large cars easily on the drive. I cannot recommend enough and once again a big thank you for a great stay and we will be back again.

A 60th at The Dairy House

Our party consisted of 3 generations of the family ranging from 10 years old to just turning 60 and we were all together to celebrate a 60th birthday. We were made to feel at home right from the start of the holiday, being met by Ken, who carefully explained everything to us. The Dairy House was extremely clean inside, with welcoming lights left on in each of the rooms. It seemed as if nothing was too much trouble for Ken, who happily sent us a text message later, recommending some local take-aways. The internal accommodation was just as in the photos/video on the website, and provided ample space for our group of 12 people. The dining room with its very large table was much appreciated, as it meant that we could all gather around it to eat together. We made very good use of this room, for playing board games/cards as well as eating. The biggest hit however was the games room, where the table tennis and pool table were enjoyed by everyone, both young and old(er). Unfortunately, the weather was not that good during our stay, but we still managed to enjoy the private garden. The house was well situated, being within easy reach of attractions and amenities. We particularly enjoyed catching the ferry for the short crossing to Gunwharf Quays and Portsmouth Dockyards. Marwell Zoo is within easy reach, and our visit there was a hit with everyone. Just a few minutes drive away is Lee on Solent, where we went to play crazy golf, at an extremely well maintained course. Ken was a very welcoming host, and The Dairy House has been thoughtfully equipped inside with everything needed for larger groups of people. Complete Holiday Homes was also extremely kind in returning some items to us that we left behind during packing, I would not hesitate to recommend The Dairy House for a family/group holiday.

The Dairy House, Gosport – five star recommendation *****

Ken the property manager throughout our six months stay was outstanding. We booked the Dairy house to accommodate the needs of our family during what I can only describe as a challenging period in our lives. The Dairy House location and facilities are excellent, well maintained and very comfortable, I highly rate this property along with Ken and Steve the handyman who took care of all our accommodation needs throughout the stay.
