“Perfect for a family holiday, in a quiet and beautiful location”
Reviewed 10 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I can't fault anything at all regarding our stay at Powderkeg cottage. Everything, from first booking the stay until leaving yesterday, has been dealt with efficiently and professionally by every member of your staff with whom we have had contact. The cottage is very well equipped with everything that anyone would need, far superior to many of those we have stayed in previously. I will recommend your Company and those cottages, in particular, to friends we know who take similar holidays.

“Home from home, ideal for both business and pleasure.”
Reviewed 23 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Overall a lovely house, very clean and homely, the property has everything you could possibly need. I was here on business but have already booked it for the summer, cant wait to relax outside in the sunshine. The property is in a great location, great for business and suitable for families to explore the local area and shop, the surrounding area is great for walks and running. And we found the staff and administration very friendly and easy to contact.

“Ideal stay for a family holiday”

person found this review helpful

The instructions on how to get there were great and we were arrived in a timely fashion. The location was a lovely spot and easy access for the water bus and museums. The garden was very safe and secure ideal for a toddler and it meant we could enjoy the weather as well as the view. Bedrooms were very nice with clean sheets and comfy beds. There was a good amount of room although having both bathrooms as en suites meant that we had to be quite tolerant of each other. The kitchen was well equipped although it might have been nice to leave a few dishwasher tablets or warn us to bring some from home. But all in all we had a great time and it was the perfect option for us with a small child for a family wedding.

“Happy Stay”
Reviewed 18 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We stayed at Powderkeg Cottage to prepare for my daughter's marriage on Valentine's Day. It was very comfortable, clean, stylish and with lots of thought having been given in to providing home from home comforts. And Fabulous Views !! We also had a full length mirror provided so my daughter could see her wedding dress and Laura the housekeeper brought us some of her own baking equipment for the wedding favours which was really much appreciated. The staff were very efficient and willing to help. Thank you - Carolyn Neal - February 2015

“Lovely house in a beautiful location, well worth a look”
Reviewed 2 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We recently stayed at Powderkeg Cottage for the Christmas period. Living in Spain we have not been back to the UK for some years and wanted to get our parents together for a long overdue family Christmas. The cottage is in a beautiful location and we had missed waking up to the views over The Solent and the lights of Portsmouth at night. The house was very clean and warm which was very important with 3 elderly people staying with us and we all had a great time. We will return the next time a family Christmas is due. We would like to thank Laura the housekeeper who did a great job and could not do enough to help us. Thank you once again for arranging a stress free

“Superb”
Reviewed 4 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We absolutely loved the cottage. The location and views of the Harbour were superb. The cottage itself was very comfortable with good facilities and great beds. The administration and communication was excellent including the collection of the keys and taking possession of the cottage. We would like to thank you for making our stay at Powder Keg Cottage such a lovely one and hope to return in the future. Gill Smith 2014

“Perfect!”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We stayed at Powderkeg Cottage while we searched for a house in the Portsmouth area, and we could not have been more pleased with our experience. The house is lovely with plenty of room for our small family to live comfortably for an extended period of time. Sophie and Ken were especially helpful; they were very responsive and took great care of us during our time at the Cottage. It made our move to the area much less stressful. Thank you!
