About this listing
A cosy self contained studio style lodge, fully kitted with kitchen and bathroom. Great for a weekend away for a festival or concert in Portsmouth! 8 mins drive or 20 mins walking to the beautiful marina, Port Solent, where you will find numerous restaurants, cinema and shops.
It is a self built studio style lodge in the back of our garden with solar panels on the roof for electricity and hot water. Initially built for us when we were converting our bungalow into a chalet bungalow so we lived in it full time for a year. It is a studio style so there is no separate sleeping space and the blow up bed on stilts would go at the bottom of the double bed (really only suitable for a child). The kitchen does not have an oven or stove at the moment but a toaster/kettle/microwave/steamer and fridge/freezer plus tea and coffee will be provided for your convenience. There is a superb Indian, Chinese and Fish and Chip takeaway 2 mins down the road or a One Stop and a Coop for microwave meals.
The guests will have the entire lodge to themselves with a private entrance and access through a side gate to the house (pin code will be provided) The walkway to the lodge is well lit to the back garden in the dark. Guests are welcome to use the the patio area for breakfast and our garden is astro turf so mud or water is never a problem. We do have two very inquisitive children (1yrs and 3yrs) who will probably want to come and say hello and see if you want to play football with them or jump on the trampoline! but we will respect your peace and shoo them away when you have had enough!
We can have infants under 2 and are happy to provide a high chair, travel cot and full access to garden toys etc if needed but please ask first before you book.
Please get in contact if you would like a weekly stay as this can be arranged on special request.
Interaction with guests
We will be on hand to welcome you when you arrive and show you where everything is and help with any questions you may have but will also respect your space and privacy.

Other things to note
**Hot water is heated through a cylinder in the garage from the solar panels and lasts for 10 mins max and then it needs 40mins to reheat **
**All our bedding is encased in 'Allerjeeze' bedding encasements (underneath the regular linen) The micro-fibre fabric has been designed with a specific weave to stop dust mites from getting through. This helps protect guests with dust mite allergies. The encasements are soft and silky to the touch and allow the skin to breath naturally. More information can be found on our website (URL HIDDEN)
