Harcourt Road on the hairy edge of Fareham was considered quite a nice area back in the day (mid to late nineties). Greyshott avenue is another road nearby worth considering.

I used to stay on the Paulsgrove estate, if it's still there? Porchester side of motorway OK, but other side in the flats not so good. IMO

Peak Lane ,Harcourt road, lived in both, stay away from Rowner.

Ready to be corrected but a lot of Rowner is now civvy housing, I think that monstrosity of a block of flats in the middle has been flattened.

Long time since I've been that way so probably wrong.

Depending how long you are training in Sultan, Cambridge Rd area is fine. I live in private housing the other side from the MQs
Rowner is indeed predominately private now and most of the concrete jungle has indeed been flattened with a Tesco, Costa (Sultan trainees study area) Chemist and Subway where Darwin Way used to be
Most of St Nicholas Avenue has been sold off so there aren't a lot of quarters in Gosport anymore (to my knowledge)
Peak Lane is still MQs
I don't know about Pompey side

The best married quarters area depends on your point of view.
For single sailors it is the one containing the wives who's husbands ship has just deployed.:p
