Condo/Apartment -
2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
New Forest National Park Hampshire, Hampshire, England
The Apartment is situated at the furthest point out into the sea along the Solent coastline and therefore offer panoramic views of passing small & large vessels, cruise liners, QM2, Queen Elizabeth, Britannia, Oceana, and Red Funnel Ferries through their large full length L-shaped lounge windows/doors and unique porthole windows. Views are over Hythe Village, Hythe Marina, Southampton & Docks, & as far as the eye can see down towards to IOWight. The vessels are so close you feel that you could reach out and touch them. Just before leaving the cruise liners often have firework displays and you will be able to see many people on deck waving. On the large semi circular balcony you can see and hear the sea beneath you. The apartment is very quiet, other than the seagulls and the sea.

Thoroughly enjoyed our week watching shipping movements on Southampton Water. Visited Southampton and the New Forest when we could tear ourselves away from the views. Apartment was everything we hoped for and was exactly as described
