INTRODUCTION Herons Creek is set in a peaceful spot close to the water's edge on the south-eastern coast of Hayling Island. Situated on a private road and tucked behind tall gates, this is an ideal spot for those who crave the peace of island life.
This family home needs some modernisation, but the well-proportioned interior of 2,395 sq. ft. lends itself to re-creation to a new family's lifestyle, and offers a wonderful opportunity to take full advantage of its setting. For the adventurous, it is possible to sail, surf and swim just a few steps from the property. Ideal for kids and grown-ups alike!
Hayling Island offers popular Blue Flag Beaches and an abundance of leisure clubs such as sailing, surfing, golf, cycling, walking and tennis. The famous Hayling Billy Trail provides miles of tracks around the island.

There are two junior schools and a college for seniors. If travel to the capital is required, Havant station is just over the bridge onto the mainland, and services take approximately 1 hr 15 mins.
