Gunpowder Cottage Visitor's Book

Gunpowder Cottage has been available since February 2011. View our visitors' comments on the cottage next door, Powder Keg, managed by the same owner and part of the Harrington Homes portfolio since 2008.

"We had a wonderful time, the house was just perfect for us. The house was very well specified and we liked having 2 living rooms although spent most of the time in the kitchen one. The location was very good and we found the local pubs including the Jolly Roger excellent. The kids loved feeding scraps to the seagulls and watching the ferries goes past. The view from the house was perfect with all the Naval ships. We would certainly recommend it to our friends and will hopefully come back one day."
Susan Hunt (January 2012)

"Gunpowder cottage was a lovely break. The kitchen is user friendly and the bedrooms are home from home except better! The view in the evenings are fascinating and we were lucky to have stayed on bonfire night. The museum next door had a fantastic firework event and we were able to watch from the patio with a glass of wine…brilliant. What I appreciated most of all was the peace and quiet in such a lovely location with all amenities close at hand."
Sian Downing (Nov 2011)

"We thoroughly enjoyed our all too brief stay at Gunpowder Cottage and really didn't want to tear ourselves away. Peace & quiet is what we wanted and Gunpowder Cottage is magically so. It was wonderful to be able to watch the activity of the port across the water but in dreamlike silence. We found the cottage immaculately clean and sweet smelling, comfortably and tastefully furnished and well equipped. The bed in the master bedroom is the most comfortable I have ever slept in.  There is so much still to see in the area that we hope to be back, possibly for the Great South Run next year if not before. Everyone involved with our booking has been most pleasant and helpful which mimized the stress involved."

"We had a really comfortable stay at Gunpowder Cottage with two of our girls staying for a few days with us. We had some good days over the water in Portsmouth both historical and retail. Loved watching the boats come a go in the harbour especially glad to see HMS Illustrious and York. The beds were comfortable with nice linen and what views when you awoke! Overall we had a very good stay and enjoyed the house."
Elizabeth Rosevear (Oct 2011)

"We were thrilled with Gunpowder Cottage. It is beautifully furnished, extremely comfortable and equipped with everything you could possibly need for a self catering holiday, even a pre-programmed SatNav! Our party consisted of three generations so it was great to have the two separate living areas. The views from the patio and balconies are breathtaking. It was a pleasure to sit and watch the tide and boats come and go, both during the day and at night with the shoreline and ferries twinkling in the distance. It's convenient for all the attractions of Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight but luxurious enough to spend your entire stay at the cottage simply relaxing and enjoying the view. I can't recommend this property highly enough and we'll certainly be back."
Kim Caldecott (Sep 2011)

"We had a really lovely time at Gunpowder Cottage it had everything there we needed, it was like home from home very clean and comfortable, also the beds were extremely comfortable and in the front bedroom the view was fantastic. If we decided to come down that way again we would have no hesitation in booking again."
Lyn Ayres (June 2011)

"It was a wonderful holiday home.  Beautiful views and furnished to a very high standard."
Debbie Sutherland (June 2011)

"We had a fantastic time, the cottages were lovely and the view and weather absolutely amazing.  We all thought the cottages were to a very high standard and beautifully furnished.  Thank you for all your help, we had a wonderful time together."
Gillian Cottle, Easter 2011 (Gunpowder & Powder Keg Cottages)

"We had a lovely time at Gunpowder Cottage, the view was wonderful for my husband and son, as they had binoculars permanently attached to their eyes when in residence! We made use of the waterbus in fact we were the only passengers on four occasions! The cottage was lovely, very comfortable, very clean and a pleasure to be in. My husband and I intend on coming back for a long weekend, just the two of us. We had a great week visiting the attractions around Portsmouth and a fantastic base to stay in."
D Simpkins, April 2011

"Gunpowder Cottage was a delightful, peaceful first class property. When traveling from overseas it is always concerning that a rental house lives up to it’s advertizing – no problems here! What great views, the birds were a constant source of interest, as was the shoreline with the tide movements. Watching the early morning ferries and ships passing by made the ever changing view difficult to leave. We will certainly be back. Harrington Homes are always first rate and I would certainly recommend them to friends and family."
J Auckland (USA) March 2011

"Hi Fiona, just wanted to say thanks for sorting out our mini break! It was fantastic, the house is beautiful and we will definitely be back at some point. Mike and Elena were lovely and very kind, please pass on our thanks to them also."
C Beesley, February 2011

"We had a lovely stay and would recommend the accommodation it was just great!"
