What you can do when you stay at our Bed & Breakfast.
Hayling Island is a beautiful part of the South Coast and Hampshire so during your stay at The Coach House, we highly recommend you take in the wonderful sights it has on offer.
Winners of both the European Blue Flag and the Keep Britain Tidy Group Seaside Award for Cleanliness and management
Take a stroll in the summer sun along Hayling Island’s beautiful beach with over 3 miles of stunning Solent views. Even on rainy days, wrap up warm and go to the beach anyway, there is nothing quite like the fresh sea air to blow the cobwebs away.
Hayling Billy Trail/Coastal Path
The Hayling Billy Trail is a scenic coastal path used by walkers, cyclists and horse riders. The track follows the entire bed of the old ‘Hayling Billy’ railway line between Havant and Hayling Island. It starts at Havant Train Station and ends in West Town at the Station Theatre. You can walk/cycle/ride the whole track or join it at various points along the way.
