“Home away from Home”
Reviewed 12 August 2014 via mobile

An idyllic B&B that feels more like a private retreat! Was greeted warmly upon arrival by the lovely owners who helped us carry our luggage and get settled into our cosy accommodation. The kitchenette was full to the brim with drink and food which catered to our unusual dietary requirements. The room looked over the house grounds with a beautiful sea view. We awoke each morning to birds tweeting and enjoyed breakfast in the Alice in wonderland-esque garden. After being off out exploring the island and enjoying the beach we would return home to find the room had been tidied and freshened up for us. Mike and Jenny were absolutely fantastic hosts and made us all feel very welcome. Can't wait to go back

Stayed July 2014

After struggling to find any accommodation on the island for a one night stay, my partner found the coach house online for myself and my daughter to stay at. From the moment we pulled onto the property and were greeted by our fantastic hosts jenny and mike, we knew we had made the right choice. This couple could not be more accommodating and helpful. The place itself is set on idyllic soroundings amongst orchards and beautiful countryside. The accommodation was a lovely barn style conversion with plenty of room and great facilities inc a fridge, microwave, crockery and lots more to make your stay as comfy as possible. Lovely beds make for a great nights sleep. Thank you to Jenny and Mike for making our stay so special. Great place you have guys, please don't change a thing.

top tip. If your a car nut (like myself), ask Mike for a look in his garage.

It's been over four years since our last visited here so my wife decided to book a night here for my birthday.

It's changed a little over the years, it has some kitchen units now providing a little more in the way of self catering options, no oven or anything...but there is a toaster, kettle, microwave, fridge and plenty of cutlery and crockery.

Cooked breakfast is no longer included in the room rate, it's strictly continental now.....this is fine with me though....not just because the selection provided is extensive but because the price has not changed in 5 years. As well as breakfast, there was tins of soup, beans etc. so there is even enough for a bit of lunch if you're staying a couple of nights or more.

The Coach House retains it's picturesque unique quaintness and is a great escape from the hustle and bustle of life.

There is a flat screen TV but no DVD player now.

The Stennings (owners who live in the Old House next door) are a lovely couple and we would very much like to return for another visit.

We've just arrived back from a wonderful weekend with Mick and Jenny Stenning at the Coach House. I can honestly say that this is the best B & B we have ever stayed in and far exceeds any hotel accommodation we have found. The room is amazing - enormous, clean and warm, with beautiful rural views. The breakfasts were of excellent quality (veggie sausages bought specially) and piping hot., brought to an immaculate table in the main house with silverware, linen napkins and fresh flowers on an antique refectory table. The room has a good-sized fridge, so we were able to buy food, a range of cutlery and crockery, fresh coffee, fruit, biscuits, fluffy bath towels, a huge bed, large tv...the list of comforts and kindnesses go on and on.
Do go and stay there. It really is very special indeed and you will meet a lovely couple who go out of their way to make your stay very, very special.
Oh, did I mention that it is completely detached, very private, wonderfully quiet and you have use of their gorgeous garden?

We arrived late afternoon to find the hosts waiting for us but ready to head off ito the pub in their electric blue Aston Martin DB6.
We had imagined from photos that the room would be half of the building, it was the whole building.
Unfortunately the shower is small and light on pressure, apart from that everything is a delight. Tea & Coffee facilities,TV, refrigerator, everything you need.
The small village is very quaint with straw roof buildings and wonderful scenery.
The room overlooks the rest of the buildings and through backwindows you can see the apple orchard and Chichester Harbour.
Breakfast was a delight and a great start to our english adventure. The story behind the B&B is interesting and we spent some time with the hosts chatting about all sorts of things. We left them with the feedback that they had set a very high bar for the others to meet.
A magical B&B in a magical setting, thoroughly recommended, an easy drive from the city.

The Coach House is a very unique bed & breakfast property. It doesn't cost much more than a double room in a B&B property on Hayling Island but offers so much more.

It's located in the village of Northney in the north east corner of the island in a very quiet rural location, next to the owners main property. It's raised up above some storage unit / garages with it's own private entrance accesible by a staircase.

The loft is very well decorated and worthy of it's 4 start rating inside, it's full of character while providing all the modern conveniences.

Unlike many B&B's you also get an extendable dining table with chairs, placements and cutlery as well as a standard size fridge and microwave. There are also glasses, full tea & coffee making facilities (including hot chocolate, cappucino etc etc!).

Out of two of the windows you can see Chichester harbour accross the fields and it's only a short walk if you want to check out the sand banks a bit closer.

The owners are extremely friendly and offer very good levels of services not to mention an excellent breakfast.

In the room is also a large TV and a trouser press!, the floors are hardwood with some lovelly large rugs. Shower and toilet/sink area all in very good working order with Dove toiletries provided.

The coach house is number one on our list for the next weekend away.

  • Liked — High quality spacious accomodation with character, quiet rural location
  • Disliked — Woodlice!...as it's a converted barn they invaded a little bit but are harmless
