About the owners

Jo

Listed since March 2024

We moved into The Crest in 2010 after outgrowing our small cottage in Wickham - it was the perfect home for our family of three. A few months after our family became four when our daughter Violet was born in 2012, we relocated to the US. We then began letting out our beloved home - mostly so we could come back to visit each year! Having since returned from California to live in a nearby village, we continue to let out The Crest as a family holiday home. It has such a warm family feel to it that we hope you'll feel it too and love the area as much as we do! With so many cities surrounding us, you can go out for the day and then return back to the countryside ready to start a completely new one.

Owner recommendations

  • Step back in time at Fort Nelson, a free historic day out for the whole family.

  • Peppa Pig World is a must-visit for those with young kids!

  • Witness spectacular flying displays, meet some striking birds of prey, and feel at one with nature at The Hawk Conservancy - it’s one all of the family will enjoy!

  • Visit Jane Austen’s Hampshire cottage to see where the author wrote all six of her brilliant novels.

  • Portsmouth Historic Dockyard offers enriching tours around the harbour for an educational day out.
