The Harbour Deckhouse

The Harbour Deckhouse

The Harbour Deckhouse is a unique self-catering holiday home. It is situated on the West Sussex/Hampshire border between Portsmouth and Chichester. You won’t find a better location to explore the South Coast. The deckhouse was lovingly restored and designed by its owners in 2021. It now provides the height of luxury and contemporary living by the sea for up to four guests.

Built on stilts in 1968, this iconic building affords wonderful views of the marina and harbour. It faces due west, so sunsets are its speciality!

Emsworth is surrounded by wonderful countryside as well as being a coastal village. It is appealing all year round for nature lovers, foodies and shopaholics alike. The picturesque harbourside retreat is close to idyllic sandy beaches and near to many historical sites, making it one of the best seaside locations.

The Harbour Deckhouse is built on the foreshore overlooking Emsworth harbour at the edge of Thorney Island. The house affords an enviable position amongst the hustle and bustle of the working yacht harbour during weekdays and then the peace and tranquility of being right by the water’s edge in the evenings and weekends.

Ideal for a wide range of activities such as sailing, cycling, walking, bird watching, fishing or just relaxing on the balcony or side deck. It is the perfect waterside retreat. A short walk through the marina, then an amble beside the tranquil ‘Mill Pond’ brings you into the heart of Emsworth village. There you will discover a wide range of homely pubs, restaurants and shops.
