    About this property

    Unique converted railway carriage located on Hayling Island, ideal for a beach holiday.
    This super, unique, detached beach house includes two converted railway carriages, one of only a few to be seen along the south coast, and enjoys a fabulous location directly on the seafront. Step onto the pebble beach via your private gate from the enclosed garden, and enjoy miles of pebble/sandy beach – a haven for all ages, including children and dogs all year round! From the front it is deceptive, having been substantially extended, but once you approach the side entrance, the original features can be easily seen. Inside, the traditional carriage doors still remain, and many of the rooms are set inside the former train carriages. Southern Bell offers tastefully styled, light and airy holiday accommodation for families - with an enclosed patio garden, plenty of off-road parking and a short walk from the local shops, eateries/pubs and harbour/sailing club. Hayling Island is renowned for its windsurfing and sailing activities and local paddle - boarding and windsurfing lessons are available close by. Every year there is a national windsurfing event, and a plethora of sailing and nautical activity can be seen along the coastline. Many activities can be enjoyed locally, including golf, cycling, boat trips and scenic walks along the water’s edge or along the South Downs National Park which are within easy reach. Chichester with its beautiful cathedral, festival theatre, pedestrianised shopping, leisure centre, Roman Villa and Goodwood or Fontwell races is definitely worthy of a visit. Visit Portsmouth with waterside dining, ferry trips to the Isle of Wight, designer outlets, leisure facilities, Spinnaker Tower, Historic Dockyard including HMS Victory and the Mary Rose, or the maritime history at Southampton. Winchester, with its cathedral and abbey, and The New Forest are within easy driving distance. Plenty of National Trust homes and gardens can also be discovered nearby. Beach 5 yards. Shop 500 yards, pub and restaurant 500 yards.

    "Perfect long weekend everything supplied for fantastic stay. Being on the beach was a massive bonus and the dogs loved it. Thanks"
    Emma ‐ 3 Nov 2018
    "We had the best weekend away from it all at this lovely place. It was all we could have imagined and more. It helped the weather was perfect for October. The beach on the back door was just priceless. The information from the owners was spot on and we all enjoyed ship watching with the binoculars and tracking app. Lots to see or do if you want to go out and explore. Would definitely go back!"

    "Upon arrival we were greeted with a welcome pack filled with delicious local goodies which was very much appreciated. The accommodation was spotlessly clean , spacious and very bright and airy.The railway carriages were very cleverly adapted. As a party including 6 adults, a 7 month old baby and 2 small dogs we were relieved to find plenty of seating and a large dining table which we could all sit around together. The beds were very , very comfortable. The walk from the accommodation to the Lifeboat station was really beautiful and quite manageable even with a baby in a buggy . The accommodation was fantastically situated for exploring Portsmouth, Southsea, and Chichester."

    "Fantastic would only change ... the sofa ... for tall people like my hubby it was to low to sit on and the back is to low to sit back on."

    "Amazing holiday rental - so beautiful. Four generations of our family all had a wonderful time at this beach house. Definitely recommend and will be going back."
    BRENDA ‐ 14 Apr 2018
    "Having stayed here several times it still has a magic atmospher. Plenty of room for different generations to relax, including the beach. The quality of the linen and furniture is good as well as table wear and cooking implements. One thing that was mention was it would be nice to have a barbecue on site."
