Oak Cliff Place is a magnificent Victorian detached house, wonderfully private with stunning uninterrupted views over the Solent to Portsmouth. Light-filled, high-ceilinged and spacious, it is set in an elevated position within five acres of land including its own small wood. To the west are walks along the shore to sandy beaches and a nature reserve; to the east is Wootton Creek, filled with yachts and smaller boats.
There is a large stone terrace to the rear of the property overlooking the garden and sea beyond, with gas barbecue and two wooden dining tables seating 16. The extensive grounds also include an asphalt tennis court, a fenced and heated (from 1st May to 30th September) outdoor swimming pool with pool house, outdoor table tennis, ground-sunk trampoline, football pitch and several lawns. The garden drops to an unfenced, uncultivated, wild flowered steep slope down, so caution is needed with young children, however there is ample alternative playing space within the gardens.
Inside, six of the eight bedrooms have full sea views. The large kitchen/dining room opens through french doors to the terrace for easy outside dining and fabulous sea views and the games room provides a pool table and TV for indoor entertainment. There is an additional TV snug with a 42″ wall mounted flat screen TV. The large drawing room and adjoining conservatory provide a peaceful setting for enjoying the wonderful coastal outlook, with an open fire for cooler evenings.

"We stayed three nights and I cannot recommend the place highly enough. It had everything we needed for a short stay, the car park was very close and the views were of the rolling Devonish countryside. We were literally less than 5 minutes drive from 2 Supermarkets and the Park & Ride for Dartmouth. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to cook as well as a small selection of helpful key essentials (tea, coffee, cooking oil, salt/ pepper, washing liquid, etc. As a family we like to explore and stay somewhere different. In this case we'd make an exception."
"Brilliant location, lovely out door space for kids to play, spotless chalet would definitely go again!"
"Thank you Gemma for hosting us in your lovely chalet - a short drive into Dartmouth and a fantastic view of the River Dart estuary. Beds all very comfy and a pleasant surprise that it can sleep 6! Great value! Many thanks!"
