The Harbour Deckhouse

The Harbour Deckhouse


The Harbour Deckhouse is your new home from home. It’s a unique self-catering holiday home on the West Sussex - Hampshire border between Portsmouth and Chichester and is perfectly situated to explore the South Coast. Appealing all the year round, the picturesque harbourside village of Emsworth is surrounded by wonderful countryside, close to idyllic sandy beaches and near to many historical sites, making it one of the best seaside locations.

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. 

The deckhouse goes above and beyond other local holiday homes. It was totally refurbished and practically re-built in 2021. It is, in fact, our second home and has been designed and renovated with love, care and attention to detail. We’ve designed it so that it has a comfortable, homely vibe, but with clean contemporary lines and a Scandi-coastal undertone. 

Ideal for coastal lovers, the Harbour Deckhouse allows you to unwind, relax and exhale. It’s a true getaway that you’ll want to come back to time and time again. 

There are a wide range of activities available in the local area such as sailing, cycling, walking, kayaking, bird watching, fishing or you just might want to chill out on our balcony or side deck. There are beautiful vineyards nearby, as well as great shopping and fine dining and a wealth of National Trust properties. Actually though, most guests seem to love just being at the deckhouse and whiling away the hours with a good book and G&T in hand. It’s a place to truly relax and the ideal waterside retreat!
