Holiday Rental House
Toll House is the southern wing of Lumley Mill, a beautiful Grade II* listed building which dates back to the 18th Century and is nestled at the end of a leafy lane just outside the harbour town of Emsworth. Imposing in appearance, the building has a notable history, with previous occupants including the artist and entomologist, Peter Buckler, and it is reputed that Admiral Nelson and Lady Hamilton were once guests of then owner who was the baker to the Royal Navy. Today, Lumley Mill is often the subject of local artists, keen to capture its character and charm. With 3 large bedrooms on the first floor, the house will comfortably sleep 6 guests, with the option of 2 further guests on pull-out beds in the twin bedroom, suitable for children (£50 supplement for use of pull-out beds).

With 3 large bedrooms on the first floor, the house will comfortably sleep 6 guests, with the option of 2 further guests on pull-out beds in the twin bedroom, suitable for children (£50 supplement for use of pull-out beds). The large master bedroom has a beautiful en suite with roll top bath and a further family shower room can be found on the first floor. On the ground floor, there is a generous kitchen featuring a 4-oven Aga. The dining area is open to the kitchen and can comfortably seat 8 or more for dinner. There is a very stylish sitting room with doors opening onto a private patio with table and chairs with the mill stream running past. There is also the benefit of a utility room. Sat right on the Hampshire/Sussex border, Toll House is perfect for a quiet retreat away from the crowds or would equally be suitable as a holiday base for those looking to explore the attractions and stunning natural surroundings that Hampshire and Sussex have to offer. Please be aware that the mill stream runs directly alongside the house and patio, with no barrier in some places. Guests with small children should be aware of this. Situated at the top of Chichester Harbour, Emsworth is a delightful market town popular with sailors, walkers, artists and tourists. It has two tidal mill ponds which are host to a variety of wild life. It is full of history, with a long established reputation for oyster fishing and boat building and still boasts traditional shipwrights and chandeliers. The sailing club is a thriving centre for sailing enthusiasts and the pretty streets have a fascinating mixture of different architectural styles. A gentle walk around the village, which has superb harbour views, gives a genuine feel for the past. There are excellent road links to Portsmouth and Chichester (15 minute drive to both approximately) and there is also a mainline station to London. There is an interesting selection of shops in the town itself and there are numerous places of interest to visit in the area. These include Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth, one of the largest vantage points in Europe, the internationally renowned Chichester Festival Theatre at Chichester, polo at Cowdray near Midhurst and horse racing and motor sports at Goodwood. In addition to the sailing at Emsworth there is also a very popular sandy beach at West Wittering which attracts wind surfers and surfers, as well as sun bathers.More
