The Beach House, Hayling Island

A super-stylish ‘upside-down' coastal retreat with a scenic dining balcony, nestled right on the picturesque beach with family fun and watersports in abundance!
  • Sleeps: 11
  • Bedrooms: 5
  • Bathrooms: 2
  • Minimum stay: 3 nights

Occupying a dreamlike location between Chichester Harbour and Portsmouth, Hayling Island is home to three glorious miles of pebble and sand beaches, three of which have been awarded a European Blue Flag.

Access to the island is via road bridge and ferry – a journey the kids are sure to love before you’ve even arrived at The Beach House!

Perfect for whole-family breaks (two well-behaved dogs are also welcome), the spacious, stylish retreat is nestled right on the beach. All you have to do to reach the sand and sea is stroll down to the end of your private garden… what bliss.

Filled with thoughtful attention to detail, you’ll love The Beach House’s laid-back, fresh coastal-themed interiors, too. Extra luxuries include a bean-to-cup coffee machine to help charge your mornings, 400 thread-count linen to snuggle up in, and a sleek sound system to set the perfect background mood.

Sleeping up to 11 guests, you’ll find five stylish bedrooms on the ground floor, including a master room with a romantic four-poster bed, and an indulgent rolltop bath with views out to the Isle of Wight.

Arranged to suit both couples and families, there are also two kingsize rooms, a twin, and a triple-bed family room.

When you’re not sleeping, you could curl up with a book in the cosy ground-floor snug, or cradle a drink on the al fresco terrace – that is, when you’re not socialising upstairs in the enormous open plan living, dining, and kitchen area.

More information

Here you’ll find a gorgeous balcony, with lounge furniture that’s perfect for making the most of those shimmering views across the Solent, especially when viewed over a home-mixed afternoon cocktail.

You’ll even find extra washing facilities for wet and sandy beachwear, and space for drying wetsuits… which means there’s no excuse for not indulging in the watersports Hayling Island is so famous for (it’s not called the “birthplace of windsurfing” for nothing!)

There are plenty of watersports schools dotted around the island if you’re a beginner, while if you’d rather keep your feet above water, you can always take a boat trip to explore the abundant wildlife, instead.

Meanwhile, confirmed landlubbers might enjoy a round of golf, or perhaps a walk, cycle, or horse-ride around the Hayling Billy Trail, a five-mile, off-road route that showcases magnificent views of Langstone Harbour.  

Or how about a trip with the kids on the Hayling Seaside Steam Railway… which leads straight to Funland Amusement Park?

However you decide to while away your time on Hayling Island, your favourite part of the day is sure to be when you relax together at the Beach House again, swapping holiday stories over the finest sunset views.

Things to note

3 night minimum stay, 7 nights in the summer. Please bring beach towels.

What the guests of The Beach House, Hayling Island say

“We stayed at the Beach House in Hayling Island and were very impressed with the property. Sleeps 11 with 5 bedrooms and dog friendly, it suited us as a large family to unwind in beautiful surroundings. The upstairs to the property is very generous in size, allowing plenty of room to dine, cook, lounge and have fun. The upper balcony overlooks the sea and offers beautiful views day and night. The house comes with every amenity one could wish for and the owner was kind enough to fast-track some fans to us when the weather became hot! Simple touches, such as built in music speakers in the ceiling, tv options for the children and modern furnishings made for a very pleasant stay. Check-in was easy, with a hassle-free app to access the property and the owner stayed in touch and ensured we had everything we needed throughout our stay. Would definitely go back again. We miss spending our evenings on the upper deck, overlooking the ocean and star-gazing. Special thanks to Katie for being brilliant and making the whole process super smooth.”

“We stayed at Hayling House at the start of July. The house is beautifully put together with amazing views and a great location with the beach on your doorstep. We very much enjoyed our stay and it is a great spot for day trips to West Wittering, Chichester and Isle of Wight as well.
A great house to stay in. Everything you needed. The beach house at Hayling Island is beautiful and great views. Would definitely go there again.”
