My sister and I met up for a short break in wonderful weather and we wanted to be near the sea. I had always loved Emsworth and I found this incredible Georgian house on the internet. Our rooms were large and furnished comfortably with everything you needed. It reminded us of our Grandmother's house when we were children in the 1950's! I had an enormous yellow bath in an enormous bathroom and the views from my bedroom windows were of gigantic rhodedendron bushes in full bloom and well cut lawns where we spotted a young deer at breakfast. The peace was what struck me most as I live in London and I have never slept so well - the bed was incredibly comfortable too!
Breakfast was laid in the dining room but as it was so hot and sunny we had it outside overlooking the gardens. Home made apple juice and home baked croissants for us but full English breakfast and all the trimmings if we wanted it. Proper home made marmelade and jams in large pots ( no plastic squares of butter or jam here) - it was delicious.
The Williams looked after us beautifully and were friendly and helpful. It was definitely a place you want to return to!
