Hampshire Holiday Homes



Hampshire is a county on the southern coast of England and borders Dorset to the west, Wiltshire to the north-west, Berkshire to the north, Surrey to the north-east, and West Sussex to the east. 

The southern boundary is the coastline of the English Channel and the Solent, facing the Isle of Wight.

 

 

Hampshire is the largest county in the South East and remains the third largest shire county in the UK.

It’s not surprising that windsurfing was invented on Hayling Island, as the island is bordered by both Chichester and Langstone harbours and boasts three miles of beaches along its seafront on the Solent.

A road bridge connects the island's northern end to the mainland of England at Langstone. The Hayling Ferry is a small pedestrian ferry connecting to the Eastney area of the city of Portsmouthon the neighbouring Portsea Island.  

Hayling Golf Club has been voted in the top 100 golf courses in the UK. A traditional links course, although relatively short by modern standards, the strong prevailing south-westerly winds, fast greens, gorse bushes and traditional deep links bunkers make this a stern test for any golfer!

Funland, an amusement park situated at Beachlands, is open year-round, as is the East Hayling Light Railway which runs from the funfair to Eastoke corner. The 5-mile (8.0 km) Hayling Billy Trail is a former light rail right-of-way which has been converted to one of many footpaths on the island.  Not forgetting (of course) the now infamous Peppa Pig World, hosted at Paultons Park!
